Why is mindfulness such a popular form of stress-reduction? Defined as “the basic human capacity to pay attention on purpose, with intention, in the present moment, in a friendly and non-judging way,” mindfulness has many benefits for physical and mental health. It treats depression, anxiety and related problems like overeating and insomnia. Often used for chronic pain, mindfulness also improves irritable bowel syndrome, psoriasis (skin eruptions), high blood pressure, and immune function.
