Some of the benefits of mindfulness practice are:

  • increased sense of self awareness and confidence
  • increased sense of personal choice
  • decreased negative cognitive rumination or self talk
  • decreased anxiety and depression
  • decreased reactivity to painful thoughts and feelings
  • increases awareness of inner resources
  • increased ability to initiate positive behavioural changes
  • increased relaxation
  • normalised blood pressure
  • improved immune function
  • increased sense of wellbeing

With regular mindfulness practice many people report finding inner strengths and resources that help them make wiser decisions about their health and life in general.

The UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) recently endorsed Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy(MBCT) as an effective treatment of prevention of relapse of depression.
