The Penn Program for Mindfulness (PPM) helps you to manage stress. PPM is built upon a meditation-based process known as mindfulness. Meditation is one of the world's most ancient and widely practiced mind-body therapies. Western medicine is increasingly realizing the role of stress in health and disease. An expanding body of research and clinical evidence supports this. One recent study suggests that meditation may cause short-term and long-term neural changes.
Health & Strength
Stress affects your health. It affects your day-to-day functioning, physical and mental well-being, and interactions with others – your quality of life. Sadly, stress limits how you view yourself and how you engage in the world. Ultimately, you miss the texture and richness that provide meaning, and bring joy and fulfillment to your everyday experiences.
All Meditation techniques share a structured mental process that steadies and deepens attention by bringing it to rest on a stable focus – allowing your mind to settle and your body to rest. Mindfulness meditation helps you to listen to what your mind and body are telling you. By cultivating a nonjudgmental, non-reactive sense of self, mindfulness helps you to develop a clearer picture of your life and an enhanced understanding of how to care for yourself.
