Mindful Meditation focuses on breathing and gives you a means to relax and control the environment around you. Best of all, you won't have to sit on the floor and cross your legs into a pretzel.

According to, there are several major benefits to mindfulness and science is seeming to back them up on these claims.

Mindfulness Meditation has been shown to help lower your blood pressure, improve your mental health and even boost your immune system.

Couples have seen it help their relationship by improving communications and reducing friction between them.  Plus it can help you reduce emotional reactivity to painful feelings during tough times.

It improves cognitive function and can help strengthen your focus for a greater period of time, plus helps stimulate creativity.

In all, Mindfulness helps you stay in the moment and worry less about what might happen in the future and lay the foundation today for tomorrow.  It's also been helpful in making you less critical of yourself in your everyday life.
