Mindfulness has been shown by high quality research, to improve wellbeing, coping with stress, mental health difficulties (e.g. preventing relapse in depression) and chronic health difficulties. Increasingly large numbers of healthcare professionals, elite athletes, those in positions of high responsibility (e.g. politicians, company directors) as well as workplace staff in general, are utilising mindfulness skills and principles. In addition many high performance athletes now utilise mindfulness to improve focus, team work and quality of recovery/rest times.
