More about Mindfulness:
When you practice mindfulness, your body relaxes: your blood pressure drops and your breathing rate slows and deepens. With regular practice, mindfulness rewires the brain as new neural pathways are formed, making it easier and quicker to come to this state of relaxation. Practitioners find they respond better to challenging situations, making more helpful decisions rather than reacting with anger or fear.
