Benefits of mindfulness

"When we cultivate mindfulness, we learn to calm down enough and dwell in states of deep relaxation. This nourishes and restores body and mind.

"At the same time, it makes it easier for us to see with greater clarity the way we actually live and therefore how to make changes to enhance our health and the quality of our life.

"Additionally, being mindful helps us channel our energy more effectively in stressful situations, or when we are feeling threatened or helpless.

"This energy comes from within and is therefore always in our reach. The path to mindfulness, in any moment, lies no further than your own body and mind and your own breathing." — John Kabat-Zinn
