In a review of research into the benefits of mindfulness, the American Psychological Association found that many studies show that practicing mindfulness reduces stress. (Davis, D. M., Hayes, J., A. What are the benefits of mindfulness? Monitor on Psychology, July/August 2012). Studies show evidence that mindfulness increases positive emotions and decreases negative emotions and anxiety. Farb et al., found that mindfulness shifts a persons ability to use emotion regulation strategies, enabling them to experience emotion selectively.

Besides these benefits there are many others, such as: boosting working memory, ability to focus attention, becoming less emotionally reactive, increased relationship satisfaction, increased immune functioning, improved sense of well-being to list a few.
