Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) said that mindfulness is, "paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally, to the unfolding of experience moment to moment.“
Have you ever had a stressful day, or experienced anxiety and pain, or maybe being overwhelm by your feelings?
Mindfulness teaches you how to cultivate a different relationship between yourself and the things that challenge you in your life. It's a worthwhile program to improve patient-doctor relationship and compassion in care.
Since the MBSR program started at UMass Medical School in 1979, over 22,000 people have completed it and more than 6,000 medical doctors and other healthcare professionals have referred their patients to this program because they understand the value of mindfulness to their patient’s health and well-being. Participants of the Center For Mindfulness's Stress Reduction Program report a 38% reduction in medical symptoms, a 43% reduction in psychological and emotional distress, and a 26% reduction in perceived stress.
