The traditional loving-kindness meditation focuses on developing feelings of goodwill, kindness and warmth towards others. Amongst much research on this simple practice, Frederickson (2008), found that practicing seven weeks of loving-kindness meditation increased love, joy, contentment, gratitude, pride, hope, interest, amusement, and awe. These positive emotions went on to support increased mindfulness, purpose in life, social support and decreased illness symptoms. Try it and see for yourself!
