There is Evidence for Mindfulness. Mindfulness courses have been rigorously tested over the last few decades and the approval by The National Institute of Care and Health Excellence (NICE) and adoption by the NHS, speaks volumes for the results. In general, the Evidence for Mindfulness research concludes that people who regularly practise Mindfulness Meditation are less likely to experience distress, have higher self-esteem, show strong social and academic skills, improved attention, job performance and satisfaction (1, 2, 3). It is telling that in a survey of GPs carried out in 2009, 68% stated it would be helpful for their patients to learn Mindfulness meditation, and 64% stated they themselves would find it helpful to take a Mindfulness course (1).
