  3. 3. Experts and studies agree that mindfulness meditation can help improve our health, wellbeing, and performance “Building mind-fitness with mindfulness training 
 may help anyone who must maintain peak performance in the face of extremely stressful circumstances, from first responders, relief 
 workers and trauma surgeons, to professional 
 and Olympic athletes.” - Associate Professor Amishi Jha, University of Miami “Our findings indicate that a short training program in mindfulness meditation has demonstrable effects on brain and immune function.” - Professor Richard Davidson, University of Wisconsin “For the first time we have shown there is actually a neurological reason for doing mindfulness meditation. Our findings are consistent with what mindfulness meditation teachers have taught for thousands of years.” - David Creswell, Ph.D., University of California “It’s fascinating to see the brain’s plasticity and that, by practicing meditation, we can play an active role in changing the brain and can increase our well-being and quality of life.” - Brita Holzel, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School “The simple process of focusing on the breath 
 in a relaxed manner, in a way that teaches you 
 to regulate your emotions by raising one’s awareness of mental processes as they’re happening, is like working out a bicep, but you 
 are doing it to your brain.” - Fadel Zeidan, Ph.D., University of North Carolina “Productivity rests on focused 
 human attention.” - Jermey Hunter, Ph.D., professor at 
 Drucker School on executive management and MBA
