To try being mindful just take some of your time and pay attention to how you are thinking. Don’t judge anything about what is going on. Just look at how you think about things. This kind of self awareness helps you calm down and see things in a new light.

What the study showed is that parts of the brain grow when a person tries mindfulness. The parts that improve have links to calmness, decision making, body regulation, and memory. This shows that taking time to use mindfulness can improve many areas of life.
