Two decades of published research indicate that the majority of people who practice mindfulness have a greater ability to cope more effectively with both short- and long-term stressful situations. By learning to actively participate in the management of their own health and well-being, many practitioners report they are better able to manage stress, fear, anger, anxiety and depression both at home and in the workplace. People taking this class come from all walks of life, but they share one thing in common: the desire to find more balance, peace and happiness in their lives.
