Mindfulness is a way of thinking that enhances focus and clarity despite the pressures of a busy day.
Mindfulness is especially suited to physicians, because it can help counteract the worrying, perfectionism and self-judgment that are so common among doctors.
Mindfulness helps physicians listen more carefully to their patients, show more compassion, and approach problems in a fresh, open-minded way.
In addition, studies have shown decreased burnout and enhanced well-being, sleep, concentration, and memory/learning from practicing mindfulness.
