‘So, to be purrrfectly clear, why am I doing this?’

Tiddles here is wondering why he should practice Mindfulness. Thankfully for him Michael Chaskalson from Mindfulness Works Ltd. has the answers. He suggests that:

  • People who are more mindful have greater awareness, understanding and acceptance of their emotions, and recover from bad moods more quickly.
  • Mindfulness is correlated with emotional intelligence, which itself has been associated with good social skills, ability to cooperate and ability to see another person’s perspective.
  • People who are more mindful have higher, more stable self-esteem that is less dependent on external factors.

Tiddles: take heed. Readers: get mindful!
