Over the last 30 years, there’s been this tremendous volume of scientific research. that’s been really quantifying the effects of mindfulness. Practicing mindfulness actually changes the structures of our brain in ways that are largely positive. It actually improves our immune system in ways that can be verifiably measured. It actually seems to reduce the stress we experience and the stress that our bodies seem to be reporting, through measures like heart-rate variability and cortisol levels. So the data is there. We know that it’s making changes and that these changes are largely beneficial.
