Who should practice mindfulness?

Anyone can do mindfulness practice. There are no barriers Cn. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what your physical ability is, if you’re religious or not…

barriers; physical ability体能; religion-religious n.adj. practices;

Mindfulness is not obscure or exotic. It’s familiar to us because it’s what we already do, how we already are. It takes many shapes and goes by many names.

We all already have the capacity to be present, and it doesn’t require us to change who we are. But we can cultivate these innate qualities with simple practices that are scientifically demonstrated to benefit us in many ways.

while后面直接跟从句,不能后面紧跟逗号隔开,同although,such as, that, because。

encourage sb to do sth. 没有encourage sb doing sth这个结构。

This may result in the child starting to bully others.

to contribute to somebody doing ~ to lead to/result in somebody doing

eg:  High unemployment contributed to him not being able to find a job.

High unemployment led to him not being able to find a job.

High unemployment resulted in him not being able to find a job.

2. To say that something contributes to somebody doing something is quite common.
3. I don’t think that “contributed to” and “led to” mean the same. “Contributed to” suggests that it was one of several factors. “Led to” suggests that it was the one (or main) factor.

The death of his father contributed to him/his leaving the country.
The fact that he was losing £500 per week contributed to him/his closing the shop.

I should add that, in my opinion, those would be better expressed as:

The death of his father contributed to his decision to leave the country.
The fact that he was losing £500 per week contributed to his decision to close the shop.

regular n.adj. regularly adv.;  transport n.v. BE.,transportation n. AE.; 使用public transport.

高频短语:work long hours; economic growth; health education; low-income families; 

building a sound structure.  sound adj. 明智的,合理的。
