Slowing down, living better through mindfulness meditation

[WCCO-TV, May 10, 2016] Folks are doing it at home and at work.

Every Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m., a group of Allina Health employees meet in a conference room to meditate.

Allina’s hospitals and clinics started offering mindfulness meditation classes to the community three years ago, in response to patients asking for help managing stress and doctors seeing success with it.

Pat Vitale oversees the classes and says that patients tell him the meditation helps them deal with stressful, jam-packed schedules.
