Find Out How You Can Ease Chronic Illness With Meditation and Mindfulness A novel study suggests that meditation and mindfulness can greatly improve the lives of people with chronic illness, particularly those with diabetes mellitus or coronary heart disease. Instead of worrying about the past or the future, patients begin to gently accept the limitations of their illness and focus on what is possible and beneficial in the present moment. The study, published in Behavioral Medicine, found that patients who practice meditation and mindfulness experience better sleep and relaxation patterns and have a more accepting outlook toward living with a long-term illness. Negative thought patterns, such as worry and thought suppression, are also greatly reduced. Thought suppression occurs when a person tries to stop thinking about a specific undesirable thought — often causing it to come back even stronger. This is the known as the “white elephant” effect.
