Mindfulness – “Mind the Hype”

Mindfulness: A cure-all

If you Google “mindfulness” you’ll find the ancient Buddhist practice has been prescribed for stress,  concentration, introverts who want to be more social and academic performance, among other things. Barnes and Noble has an inventory of over 2,000 mindfulness books while the Apple app store carries a myriad of mindfulness options for meditation on-the-go. Devotees swear by its life-changing potential, and its even being employed in schools and work places. The principle has become increasingly trendy in recent years, as shown by an increasing interest in mindfulness products, yoga and Google searches. Mind the Hype
