Step Back, React Less, and Respond More to What Life Is Offering to You at the Moment!

Mindfulness Can Help Your Health | Veteran Car DonationsSome people find it challenging to focus on what’s going on in their lives. Their minds take flight, finding themselves engrossed in obsessive thoughts about something that just happened or about what they think is going to happen in the future. As a result, these people miss out on experiencing the present.

Do you spend a huge chunk of your time regretting the past or worrying about the future? The good news is that it’s never too late to take a step back, react less, and respond more to what life is presenting to you at this very moment.

 

What Is Mindfulness?

The term, “mindfulness” speaks of the inherent human ability to become fully present. Contrary to what some people believe, practicing mindfulness doesn’t necessarily involve sitting still in a quiet corner for hours.

You can be mindful while you’re eating, walking, interacting with people, or doing the laundry. When you pause and tune in to the present, you’ll be able to look at your thoughts, emotions, sensations, and environment without judgment — and your body will thank you for it.

 

How Mindfulness Can Benefit Your Health

According to clinical studies and research, mindfulness plays a vital role in treating, managing, and reducing the symptoms of mental and physical health conditions. What’s more, experts have discovered that this powerful practice can significantly improve an individual’s health and quality of life. Veteran Car Donations has compiled some of the health benefits of integrating mindfulness into your daily life.

  1. It reduces stress.

For decades, people have been using the mindfulness technique to change how they process their thoughts and emotions. A study published in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience shows that mindfulness reduces the activity in the brain region that’s responsible for triggering the release of stress hormones.

  1. It decreases emotional reactivity.

Another study that was published in Motivation and Emotion confirms that mindfulness helps individuals disengage from emotionally upsetting information. Besides exhibiting a weakened emotional response to unpleasant stimuli, those who were trained in mindfulness showed better ability in focusing on cognitive tasks.

  1. It improves your memory.

A clinical trial that was published in the journal Emotion proved this point. It demonstrated how mindfulness can improve a person’s short-term memory capacity even in a stressful situation.

 

Are You Mindful of the Plight of Veterans in Your Area?

In practicing mindfulness, you may develop a keener understanding of what’s going on around you, including the plight of the suffering veterans in your community. These are our former service members who are homeless, unemployed, disabled, and physically or mentally ill.

You can easily lend them a helping hand by simply donating any vehicle you no longer need to us here at Veteran Car Donations. We will use your donation to improve the living conditions of the struggling veterans in your community.

Our team will put your vehicle up for auction, with the proceeds going to our veteran-focused nonprofit partners.
