Evidence of impacts

There are now many research studies that prove the effectiveness of mindfulness in a number of contexts.

In a nutshell, mindfulness works by creating new neural pathways in the brain, activating new, wholesome and effective patterns, whilst releasing old, bad habits and assisting them to  ‘disconnect’.

Scientific studies confirm the effectiveness of mindfulness practices in combating stress and improving mental, social and physical wellbeing. These proven benefits include:

– reduced stress levels
– reduced anxiety
– improved concentration
– improved cognitive flexibility
– improved immune functions

These benefits translate into:
