MINDFULNESS PROMOTES HEALTHY GLUCOSE LEVELS


It is well-established that elevated glucose levels tend to increase the risk of Type-2 diabetes.

Those who score high on mindfulness are significantly more likely than people with low scores to have healthy glucose levels.

That is the finding of a new study published in the American Journal of Health Behavior.

The researchers also sought to identify factors that might explain the connection they saw between higher mindfulness and healthier glucose levels.
