Being more mindful may ease depression

A two-year study by Oxford University on the benefits of mindfulness concludes that its approach, which combines meditation, yoga and ways to think positively, may offer patients a new option for depression treatment. Lead researcher Willem Kuyken said they had hoped to show the approach was superior to pills but that was not the case. He said both treatments had long-lasting positive effects on depression and the quality of life.
