Western medicine has adopted and used mindfulness treatments for decades, as early as the 1990s. The public has little awareness of meditation or mindfulness, even though today’s mental health treatment continues its usage. Even with today’s advanced therapeutic treatments, holistic health practice continues to grow.
Meditation involves the discipline of sitting still while training your brain on specific objects or goals, or sometimes purposefully not, and trying to clear your mind entirely. This helps to train the brain to improve well-being, which can result in increased happiness in everyday life.
