The formal practice of mindfulness is over 2,500 years old, but in the past 30 years, Western science has conducted extensive research on its benefits and applications. The regular practice of mindfulness has shown to reduce anxiety and stress, support immune function, increase mental resilience and distress tolerance, decrease depressive symptoms, increase pain tolerance, and improve overall mental outlook.
