Daily meditation can make all the difference.
Meditation and mindfulness exercises can enhance a complementary medicine program. While meditation and mindfulness are not magic bullets, the science is clear that meditation can be enormously helpful in: improving pain tolerance, lowering cortisol levels, lessening anxiety and depression, improving cardiac health, increasing focus, adapting to end-of-life medical conditions, and so much more.
In addition, meditation and mindfulness can “help the helpers” increase the quality of their self-care, so that they can continue to face this difficult work without burning out or callousing over.
