TEDx Talks on Mindfulness

TEDx talks on Mindfulness meditation

Scientists, doctors and researchers from many different disciplines have been conducting tremendous amount of research and performing many trials on the practice of mindfulness meditation. They are confirming the benefits that practitioners have been advocating for centuries. Breakthroughs are being made practically every day.

It is now proven that mindfulness meditation helps people overcome many health-related issues such as stress, high blood pressure, heart disease, substance abuse, etc. It is now also proven that the practice helps people enhance their mental capabilities such as abstract thinking, memory, and creativity. It even helps people improve their emotional intelligence leading to the development of leadership and social skills.

It comes as no surprise that literally hundreds of TEDx talks from around the world have now been given detailing many different facets of this practice. I will list many of these talks that I have found very inspiring. I will also offer my comments and recommendations for some of them. Hopefully, you will find them inspiring as well. This is by no means an exhaustive list. I will continue to add talks as I come across them in my research.

I have taken the liberty of organizing these talks into different categories. It would be easier for website visitors to review them. Some of these talks span multiple categories. Some of these categories are not exclusive but this is an initial effort. I would really love to get feedback from website visitors to see if this helpful or not. I would love to hear of suggestions for further improvements as well.
