“Mindfulness has been proven to be at least as good as antidepressants”
What is mindfulness? And what really are the benefits? Author and expert in mindfulness and meditation, Dr Danny Penman explains it all. We discuss how numerous clinical trials have proven that mindfulness is as good as medication for depression and in some cases, even better. We also talk about how effective mindfulness breathing can be for pain control and many other conditions. Danny explains how rather than consuming time, practising meditation or mindfulness actually frees up more time. Stress can permeate every aspect of our lives and every organ in our bodies. Setting aside just 10-20 minutes a day and focusing on our breathing can have a really profound long-term effect on our bodies and minds. For those of you who aren’t sure where to start – Danny talks us through a simple breathing mindfulness exercise. Finally, he gives some brilliant tips on how we can incorporate mindfulness into our everyday lives. I hope that this helps you in your lives and that you enjoy listening.
