Mindfulness Meditation for Chronic Illness
According to the Center for Disease Control about half of all adults (117 million people) have one or more chronic health conditions such as infertility, chronic pain, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, respiratory disease, and obesity.

Meditation is an important part of mindfulness, whether you initially enjoy it or not, as it awakens you to your current situation. When you practice with an alert and open mind for just a little bit of time, you will begin to recognize the benefits that naturally occur and become accustomed to the practice.
