As mindfulness meditation and yoga have become mainstream and more extensively studied, growing evidence suggests multiple psychological and physical benefits of these mindfulness exercises, as well as for similar practices like tai chi and qi gong.

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses analyzing hundreds of research studies suggest that mindfulness-based interventions help decrease anxiety, depression, stress, and pain, and help improve general health, mental health, and quality of life. These practices also appear to reduce inflammation and increase immune response.

Trade in your luggage for yoga pants.

    Anyway, does anybody have any legit resources about this "mindfullnes meditation" thing?

    Been hearing about it, and wanted to do my own trial run.

    Take mushrooms and meditate while on a vacation in peaceful setting with music you enjoy, and I guarantee you will come out of it in better shape than before. The costs are negligable; the hard part is securing all of that. But once you do, you probably will have benefits that six months just physiologically; mentally it may last much longer due to the profound nature of it all.
