Got Pain? Get Pain Relief With Easy Mindful Awareness

In this episode of the, "Mind Over Stress" podcast, you learn about two important research studies establishing the effectiveness of mindfulness in reducing the intensity of physical pain and the emotional disturbance that often accompanies physical pain. 

Commenting on the most recent study, lead researcher Fadel Zeidan, Ph.D., assistant professor of neurobiology and anatomy at the medical school associated with Baptist Medical Center, said,

 "We now know that some people are more mindful than others, and those people seemingly feel less pain."
