The way we handle our feelings plays a big part in how we cope with challenging experiences in life. Mindfulness is a potentially life-changing way to alter our feelings in positive ways, and an ever-expanding body of evidence shows that it really works.
Mindfulness is already known to be successful in helping people with mental and physical health problems, from stress, depression and anxiety to chronic pain, eating disorders and addictions. It can also improve our concentration, boost our productivity at work, and give us a greater enjoyment of life.
Despite its proven successes, access to mindfulness is still limited. According to the Mental Health Foundation’s surveys, over half of us say we’d like to attend free meditation classes to help with stress, yet only one in five GPs is able to access mindfulness courses for their patients.
We want to make mindfulness-based courses available to everyone who wants or needs them, and are campaigning for more recognition of the benefits of mindfulness by health professionals.
