As a mindfulness practitioner since 1994, I have experienced the impact that awareness of the present moment can have on our mental and physical health. As a scientist, I have run NIH-funded studies identifying the mechanisms through which mindfulness has those effects.
As a therapist, I both use and teach mindfulness to those interested in this approach. Mindfulness has been proven to reduce stress, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. There is some evidence that mindfulness can improve sleep and many other health outcomes.
