Mindfulness meditation is a simple technique used by millions of people throughout the world where we practice mindfulness to develop a calm and peaceful mind. Mindfulness meditation reduces stress, anxiety, and other negative states of minds and promotes physical health due to the relationship between our mind and the health of our body. With a peaceful mind we feel a greater joy for life and our relationships with people and the world around us become harmonious.
Meditation and mindfulness brings stillness and time for reflection. When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within. This feeling of contentment and well-being helps us to cope with the busyness and difficulties of daily life. So much of the stress and tension we normally experience comes from our mind, and many of the problems we experience, including ill health, are caused or aggravated by this stress. By practicing mindfulness ten or fifteen minutes each day, we will be able to reduce this stress.
