So as we look at all the disease processes related to stress in the above statistics, as we begin to relieve stress we decrease our risk of stress-related disease.
Mindfulness helps to treat heart disease. It can help lower blood pressure, which also reduces heart disease. It can reduce chronic pain which impacts so many different diseases.
It improves sleep, which has a huge impact on mental and physical illness. Sleep deficiency has been implicated in increases in insulin resistance and hormonal imbalances. Mindfulness can also alleviate digestive issues, perhaps because there are so many neural connections in the digestive tract.
With all the health benefits of mindfulness I challenge you to give it a try! It can change your mental and physical health in so many ways.
