Meditation Helps Stress & Immune System
The authors specifically identify four key components of "mindfulness" -- the state of meditation -- that may account for its effects: attention regulation, body awareness, emotion regulation, and sense of self. Together, these help us deal with the effects of stress.
Dr Hazel said the components are closely intertwined so an improvement in attention regulation, for example, may improve our awareness of our physiological state. Body awareness, in turn, helps us to recognise the emotions we are experiencing.
Namaste to that!
