Why The Omindful Method?
There is compelling evidence that Mindfulness is a pivotal space to center health and wellness across the lifespan. Health is not just the absence of illness. Higher levels of well-being have been shown to alter the actual biology, making cells, organs, and people more conducive to health. Most of us have experienced stress, anxiety, depression, and even emotional trauma in their life, directly impacting our physical health.
Evidence that Mindfulness and Meditation can:
- Improve overall health
- Decrease dementia risk factors
- Decrease depression
- Reduce anxiety
- Reduce pain
- Improve overall cognitive function
- Improve sleep
- Improve attention and concentration
- Cultivate well-being

How Mindfulness is Brain Protection
Stress harms the brain. There is evidence that stress can lead to severe memory decline. As stress increases, cognitive resourcing (the ability to use mental skills) decreases. Mindfulness is focused attention on whatever you are doing. This practice protects your brain from cognitive decline.
How Mindfulness Calms your Emotional Mind
The mind is continually racing. Non-stop mental stimulation is exhausting. In order to perform optimally at anything, we must recover from the stresses of that activity.
Mindfulness, Meditation, and Movement Program answers this recovery need for our mind.
The thoughts you feed become stronger. When you are dissatisfied, your negative thoughts feed a negative story, impacting your emotional well-being. Mindfulness practice recognizes that you are separate from your thoughts. Mindfulness separates the signal from the noise. Mindfulness grounds you in calm.
Mindfulness is like a workout for your mind.
Meditation is like doing mental push-ups. When your thoughts wander, when your mind bounces from re-hashing the past to rehearsing for the future, it takes mental strength to pull yourself back to the present. This is the toughest workout. And a nano-second of focus amidst a storm of chaos is the best training for the mind.
Even the US Military has realized the benefits of mindfulness training.
Recent research by Dr. Amish Jha found that troops who went thru a month-long training regimen that included daily practice in mindful breathing and focus techniques were better able to discern key information under chaotic circumstances and experienced increases in working memory function. This resulted in a reduction of cognitive errors when compared to peers who did not undergo training.
“It has been stated that mindfulness is actually a national security asset.”
– Dr. Amish Jha
