The proven benefits of mindfulness for people living with cancer are immense: reduced stress, improved sleep quality, increased sense of well-being, improved quality of life and increased immune function.
Furthermore, studies have shown that personal growth and healing is possible once we get
below the surface of fear, anxiety and depression. Mindfulness is a vital practice for living with a chronic illness like cancer and coming to terms with loss and one’s own mortality.
“Whether we are basically healthy at the moment or have a terminal illness, none of us knows how long we have to live. Life only unfolds in moments. The healing power of
mindfulness lies in living each one as fully as you can.”
