The article, “How mindfulness, meditation can benefit both spiritual and physical health” by Eliza Smith-Driggs looks at mindfulness and meditation as way to find health. She also explains how they differ. She states,

She distinguished the two this way: “Mindfulness focuses the mind on one thought or object. … Meditation is about emptying the mind.” She said emptying the mind is harder for people in pain, whereas focusing the mind on something positive can be more effective.”
