Mindfulness and self-compassion have become popular concepts in the realm of personal growth. A growing body of research indicates that these practices offer tangible mental health benefits. This ongoing, extensive, and worldwide research clearly demonstrates the mechanisms and reasons behind the effectiveness of mindfulness and self-compassion.

One effective approach to developing mindfulness and self-compassion is through the practice of meditation.

Both practices are associated with increased well-being.
