Just as physical exercise is good for the body, so MEDITATION and MINDFULNESS can make positive neuro-physio-psychological changes to the mind as well as being good for the body.   Mindfulness, of which Mindfulness Meditation is an integral part, is a calm, alert, deliberate awareness of one’s body, body functions, thoughts, sensations and feelings.

Mindfulness is not a religion or cult.   Mindfulness Meditation deals effectively with negative thoughts and emotions, pain, suffering and stress ... and thus “dis-ease”.   Mindfulness Meditation produces observable and measurable psycho-physical changes in both the body and the mind ...  

Changes in the Body include ... ... reduced heart rate... reduced blood pressure... lowered cholesterol... reduced muscle tension ... increased cardiovascular efficiency... improved circulation of blood and lymph... improved gastrointestinal functioning ... reduced sensitivity to pain ... enhanced immune system ... improved posture... overall relaxation of the body and sleep.  

Changes in the Mind include ... ... increased cortical thickness in the grey matter of the brain ... a calmer, more patient, stable and steady mind ... overall relaxation of the mind... a feeling of wellbeing ... improved ability to cope with and release stress ... enhanced cognitive functioning and performance ... improved concentration and attention to detail... faster sensory processing... increased capacity for focus and memory... increased learning and consciousness... increased openness to new ideas ... greater responsiveness in the moment... reduced mental distractedness... increased verbal creativity ... delayed ageing of the brain.  

In addition to its health benefits, Mindfulness, as a way of being ... ... fosters ethical behaviour and empathy toward others ... improves skills in leadership, problem-solving, negotiation and mediation ... enhances self-esteem, self-awareness and self-compassion ... assists in dealing with the problems of “learned helplessness” ... leads to greater personal and work satisfaction.    

THIS IS NOT MERE OPINION ... IT IS MEDICAL FACT ...... supported by innumerable neuroscientific findings reported in reputable medicaland scientific journal articles, and... documented in numerous scholarly professional and business journal articles on the beneficial results of Mindfulness and Mindfulness Meditation in the workplace.
