Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the current moment. If you’re suffering from the symptoms of a chronic illness, you might think that the last thing you want to do is focus on the moment. However, there are surprising benefits of mindfulness for chronic illness. The practice can help you in a wide variety of ways.
That is why I invited an expert in mindfulness and chronic disease.
