Mindfulness benefits people who experience stress in their lives as well as those who don't. It enables us to live our life more fully, effectively, and peacefully. It gives us greater control of our experiences and more satisfying ways of responding to them. It helps us transcend any images of our self and our capabilities that might narrow our experience.
