Does mindfulness really work? Research shows that mindfulness can improve memory, reduce anxiety and break harmful habits such as overeating, smoking and substance use. On The Point, we talk with psychiatrist and internationally known expert in mindfulness training Dr. Judson Brewer about the science behind mindfulness.
We discuss Calmer Choice, a program introducing local students to the practice of mindfulness. We also get tips on practicing mindful eating.
