Effects of mindfulness


It's no wonder everyone seems to be into mindfulness nowadays, when you look at all of the beneficial effects it can have on your health.

The main goal is to help you to de-stress and manage your thoughts and emotions more easily, but as stress plays such a huge role in the way the mind and body functions, this has a knock-on effect on your general wellbeing.

"Mindfulness helps induce relaxation, which is a physiological response that slows heart rate, drops blood pressure, and decreases the levels of stress hormones," Dr. Robotham explains.

Less stress equals a happier, healthier life as far as we're concerned, so we're keen to give it a go. 

"Mindfulness has been shown to help people manage every day stress and anxiety and related problems such as insomnia and mood problems," Dr. Robotham continues. So if you're struggling with other mood-related issues, you may be pleasantly surprised by the results.
