Mindfulness was introduced to the Western world by dr. Jon Kabat Zinn in 1979 in the United States.

But what Mindfulness actually is? In short, it is about:
- being aware,
- in the present moment,
It sounds so simple yet, since modern life became so fast and demanding and since we are not thought emotional intelligence nor the mental-emotional self-regulation in the school, in practice most of us live big part of the time on autopilot focused on our "to do" lists and compromising our health and wellbeing. We face a general overactivation of our nervous system and there is not enough space for just being, resting, relaxing and recharging our batteries. This kind of life style creates lots of stress, anxiety and health issues.
Luckily, Mindfulness meditation is an effective tool to counterbalance those negative effects of the stressful times we are living in. Continue reading to see what are the actual scientific benefits of a regular Mindfulness practice.
An increasing number of leading international companies (Google, Facebook, Ebay, Accenture, Ernst & Young, Procter & Gamble) have become aware of scientifically proven benefits of mindfulness and have started using it for the long-term well-being of their employees and of the business.
