The health benefits of mindfulness have been known for thousands of years, and in recent times, science has been testing the claims for the benefits of mindfulness meditation and meditation in general. A certain amount of scepticism in life is a healthy thing, so if you – like me when I started – would like to see some scientific evidence for the benefits of mindfulness meditation, here’s a selection of what’s out there – just click on the titles – they’re all external links to scientific reports. You can find a whole lot more if you Google it.
I hope that this evidence encourages you to use mindfulness meditation as part of your toolkit for a happy and fulfilling life. Then, like I found, you can be the evidence – there’s no greater present you could give yourself in life than that!
