Mindfulness Day Collection

What is mindfulness? A growing body of evidence suggests that the practice of mindfulness, which originates from Buddhist methodology, may improve mental health, and could improve our overall state of mind and wellbeing when managing stressful situations. To further conversation on this increasingly popular practice, Wiley have brought together an extensive research collection which aims to unpack mindfulness as a psychological practice, and a way of life. All articles are freely available until 31 October 2017.
