The worlds of science and mindfulness might seem unrelated, but there is new scientific research being carried out all the time which investigates how mindfulness affects people. Across the world, people have practiced mindfulness in different forms for millenia and many can vouch for its benefits, but both lifelong practitioners and people who are new to the practice might wonder what scientific evidence there is for these benefits. 


The articles are about the health benefits of mindfulness and what scientific research has found about the ways mindfulness and meditation can impact us psychologically. These articles have been prepared and written by a team of researchers, who have both academic knowledge as well as practical understanding of meditation and alternative practices like yoga.
