STRESS & AGEING

Stress has been shown to shorten telomeres, which are key in the process of ageing. 

 

Our minds are under a constant siege of distraction and often feel like they're jumping around like crickets. What’s the evidence we can develop focus, creativity and compassion, and access a place of tranquility and balance? Thousands of studies have found that these fundamental qualities of living with excellence can be developed with mindfulness; that we can optimise our minds with simple mental training practices.
