Today’s target is 216 push-ups. Two hundred and sixteen is the number of studies published in scientific journals between 2013-2015 that investigated the benefits of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is not new – techniques we call mindfulness have been practised by followers of Buddhism for centuries. However, the incorporation of mindfulness into Western medicine has taken place very recently: in 2004-2006 only 11 studies looking at mindfulness were published. Whether old or new, they have been largely positive: yes, mindfulness really can work.
