Mindfulness is a technique that helps practitioners pay precise, nonjudgmental attention to their thoughts. Instead of pushing away difficult experiences, they practice simply being with them. As a result, if something needs to be changed, mindfulness helps them to be present enough to understand what needs to be done. Research shows that even brief exposure to mindfulness training reduces stress, eases chronic pain, and improves well-being.

Benefits for caregivers:

  • Gain compassion in your relationship with yourself
