Bin He Findings

He and his colleagues found that long-term, active meditative practice decreases activity in the default network. This is the brain network associated with the brain at rest — just letting your mind wander with no particular goal in mind — and includes brain areas like the medial prefrontal cortex and the posterior cingulate cortex. What’s more, the longer a monk had been practicing, the bigger the reduction in activity the researchers observed.

Definition mindfulness

Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we're doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what's going on around us.

Mindfulness is the quality that every human being already posseses, it is not something you can conjure up, you have to learn how to acces it.

Mindfulness is a natural quality we all have in us. We can use it at any moment throughout our day if we take the time for it. Mindfulness might seem simple but it't not necessarily all that easy.
