1. According to the experts of “Mindfulness For Beginners”, simply practicing mindfulness for just eight weeks, will improve your immune system, by lowering the stress hormone cortisol. A continuous high level of cortisol has an adverse effect on your ability to fight infections, and well as negatively affect your thyroid levels.
2. Mindfulness and meditation practices have also cognitive benefits – allowing the practitioner to be able to focus for a longer period of time, improve concentration, and aid in retaining information.
3. The calming effect of a daily mindfulness practice greatly lowers the impulsiveness of its practitioners and allows a more thorough evaluation of consequences, rather than mindless action. This positive behavior in return can improve relationship and interpersonal skills.
