Most of us have something about ourselves that we don’t like.

Perhaps it’s our weight, our facial features, or (venturing down the more serious end of the spectrum), we suffer from a health condition that’s weighing heavily on our quality of life.

We’re so intrigued by research on mindfulness, specifically how it can transform everything from our perceptions, to our lives. Have you tried implementing more mindfulness into your day-to-day living? How has it impacted you?
