With the demands of modern times, it can be difficult to live a life that feels truly balanced. Jon Kabat-Zinn, author and professor emeritus of medicine, says mindfulness can be a vital tool in cutting through the noise of daily life. Jon, the founding executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, offers an introduction to the practice of mindfulness and reveals how it can be used to help manage stress, anxiety, pain and chronic illness. He also discusses his books, including the best-seller "Wherever You Go, There You Are" and "Coming to Our Senses," and shares a simple test to help you begin cultivating your own mindfulness practice.
