Washington, September 20:

Mindful meditation can help reduce stress, decrease cellular aging, and help patients cope with their illness, according to traditional medicine and eminent researchers.

Researchers have found that doctors who underwent mindfulness meditation training listened better to their patients and were less judgmental at home and at work, the Huffington Post reported.

People suffering from rheumatoid arthritis also benefited from practicing mindfulness meditation exercises, as it helped them concentrate on their own thoughts, experiences and pain in the moment, without actively trying to avoid them or judge them, a study from Oslo''s Diakonhjemmet Hospital has revealed.

Researchers found that patients who did the exercises had lower stress and fatigue measurements than people who didn''t partake in the meditation.

The meditation practice which explores all aspects of the mind and body helps decrease feelings of loneliness, which is known to increase the risk for a number of other health problems, in the elderly people.

Practicing yoga for eight weeks helped stroke survivors to improve their balance, made them more flexible and stronger, and helped in endurance and strength.

The Washoe County Sheriff''s Office in Reno, Nevada, is offering yoga classes to female prisoners to help them with anger and stress issues.

Mindful meditation also helped lower anxiety and depression, and decreased cellular aging from stress. (ANI)
