BOTTOM LINE

The idea here is when we practice mindfulness the awareness and the wisdom both work together.

Aside from anger, there are other emotions that can have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing anxiety, stress, worry, fear and sadness all have the tendency to destruct the mental habits and dispositions.

But only when they are having great frequency when they put the people around yourself at risk for injury or them interference with your social functioning.

These three dispositions specifically have the most intensive scientific data to support their role as risk factors for the onset of the clinical levels of depression anxiety, cardiovascular disease and found to promote cellular aging at the level of your DNA.

Mindfulness training can highly reduce the chronic symptoms.

Which proves that mindfulness practices such as meditation can improve your mental habits of attention in both conscious and non-conscious level.

The more one meditates the more the brain relief from the normal-age related atrophy that we all get, unfortunately.

All our brains are shrinking in size after age 20. If you meditate you can protect that.

Every thought is our brain is literally sculpting at every moment and although we don’t have any control of past we have the power at this moment and going forward to choose to how to pay attention to your thoughts and emotion every moment.

Which becomes the opportunity to change the way we perceive the world and ease the burden by which there is potential for destructive emotions like anxiety, and sadness.

Question is from what you fill your mind with then?
