The fourth of the Seven Principles of Mindfulness in Healing from the book, Healing with the Seven Principles of Mindfulness is to practice daily meditation. Here is why.

When you practice diligently, day in and day our, you develop personal traits like wisdom, compassion, joy, equanimity, loving kindness, generosity, patience, and many more. You develop as sense of calmness that changes your attitudes about almost everything in life.
