International Mindfulness Day – September 12 – was created by Wisdom Publications, the leading publisher of books, podcasts, and online courses on contemporary and classic Buddhism and meditation, with the intent to raise awareness to the general public about the profound value and benefit of mindfulness. Studies say that eight in 10 Americans experience stress in their daily lives and have a hard time relaxing their bodies and calming their minds, which puts them at high risk of heart disease, stroke, and other illnesses. A May 2018 trial (RCT) by the University of Surrey, School of Psychology evaluated the effect of mindfulness on depression, anxiety and perceived stress and reported a 63% decrease in depression, 58% reduction in anxiety, 40% reduction in perceived stress, 25% decrease in rumination, 26% reduction in fatigue, 33% improved sleep quality.
