Joyce Marter, LCPC
Studies continually show that mindfulness and meditation practices can help alleviate stress, anxiety and depression and improve sleep. However, mindfulness has also been shown to increase immunity and promote better overall health as well as happiness and wellbeing both personally and professionally, leading to more confidence and better relationships.
Meditation allows us to be rooted in the present, recalibrate our nervous system and quiet the mind. Further, it helps increase mental clarity and quiet, “mind chatter.” Meditation also instigates a deeper connection to ourselves and to others.
