14 Benefits of Mindfulness. {Infographic}

Buddha in Meditation Mystic Lens

Mindfulness, for me, can be elusive. How about you?

After studying this infographic and perusing all the benefits of mindfulness (and how mindfulness actually works), I’m going to be more mindful about being mindful.

Instead of scurrying through my to-do list (which includes, by the way, slowing down and breathing) at record pace, I’m going to set an alarm every hour and dedicate at least five minutes to meditation. This can be as simple as looking out the window at trees. Or walking outside and breathing in some fresh air.

My numero uno roadblock in life is anxiety and, hey, if mindfulness can alleviate that, then mindfulness needs to become my middle name. My bff!

So, without further ado, may I present the mindfulness infographic so you, too, can learn its benefits and how it all works:

I have been practising mindfulness which in Pali language is called as Vipassana since i was 18. Its been a 12 years journey for me and i must say its wonderful. I have seen lives transform around me. I have seen people beating cancer as well as depression. Yes i agree to start with it, is difficult. But with practise it becomes easy.

The concept for the second page is blatantly ripped off from Knopf’s Oliver Sacks book covers.

Mindfulness carries powerful benefits for health and stress relief. Increasing your capacity for mindfulness supports many attitudes that contribute to a satisfied life. Being mindful makes it easier to savor the pleasures in life as they occur helps you become fully engaged in activities, and creates a greater capacity to deal with adverse events.
