Why mindfulness?

Peace” explained...

The formal practice of mindfulness as a discipline was born at the University of Massachusetts in the 1970s. To date, universities such as Harvard, Stanford, Ucla and others have published around 3,500 studies on the topic. The studies are based on scientific evidence, on the definitive positive role that full attention has had on the health sciences. This includes the winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2009, Elizabeth Blackburn. Through her different researches she’s highlighted the importance of mindfulness and healthy lifestyle habits in avoid aging and cell inflammation in order to prevent serious diseases.

Today, its importance is felt beyond the medical field. A clear example is its use in Silicon Valley, where new tools and proposals are deployed on its impact in events such as Wisdom 2.0. The annual conference on the latest trends in mindfulness and soft skills attracts executives from companies such as Google, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

We speak then of mindfulness as a discipline with a high impact in different sectors. Its importance lies in the universality of its method and its objectives, which can be summarized as a pause, attention and be present in any activity we do. Experts suggest us to think of attention as a muscle that must be exercised through discipline and meditation.

This ability to transform the brain through meditative practice is called “Neuroplasticity.” This possibility is quite encouraging, since it allows us to see life as an evolutionary process of learning and permanent change.

Mindfulness, from the perspective of neuroscience, can be the answer to re-configure and re-adapt ourselves with awareness to the different situations and challenges that life presents us.
