    “Everyday” mindfulness is an awareness of your thoughts and feelings. And people who have it tend to have healthy glucose levels, new research shows.

    They also are less likely to be obese and they’re more likely to believe they can change many of the important things in their life—two factors that scientists suspect may contribute to the healthy glucose levels.

    Their overarching hypotheses are that people practicing higher degrees of mindfulness may be better able to motivate themselves to exercise, to resist cravings for high-fat, high-sugar treats, and to stick with diet and exercise regimens recommended by their doctors....

    Participants with high levels of mindfulness were about 20 percent less likely to have type 2 diabetes, but the total number of people in the study with the condition may have been too small to allow for definitive findings

    Oh so what they are saying I got diabetes because I wasn't mindful is that what I'm reading? I was just 11 years old when I got it so I don't think mindfully had anything to do with it.

    People without a sense of blame have contrasting blood pressure levels.

    Awareness of my thoughts and feelings will lower my blood sugar?

    I had no idea that depression, loneliness, low income and acute awareness of all of these could be so powerful.

    Now please tell me more about mindfulness.
