A new study suggests that mindfulness may reduce motivation to continue with a task. Does this mean that the benefits of mindfulness are “pure speculation”?
This wasn’t a large study (you can read about it in the article), and the participants’ only experience with mindfulness was a single 15 minute guided meditation - not exactly an 8-week course. The task which participants felt less motivation to complete was one they were instructed to complete for an experiment - an anagram puzzle or editing a letter; hardly important work. Perhaps the reason they felt less motivation was that they had more perspective on their priorities.

The authors also suggest that having fewer thoughts about the future could interfere with setting and completing goals, yet fewer thoughts is what one might expect of more task-focused workers, and indeed, in terms of actual performance on the tasks, there was no difference between the mindfulness and no-mindfulness group. The suggestion that this study demonstrates that mindfulness is damaging to productivity is itself highly speculative, and clashes with increasing body of data which speaks to the many benefits of mindfulness. What do you think?

Mindfulness Courses for Stress - London

Happiness is a skill. This is what the ancient practice of mindfulness teaches, and what modern psychology research has shown. The wonderful thing is that this skill, just like driving or dancing, can be learned, and it can stay with you for a lifetime.

On this eight-week Mindfulness for Stress course you will learn how to boost your happiness and well-being, find new sources of resilience, joy, and calm in your life, and to cope with stress, anxiety, fear, and depression. The course is run by an expert Breathworks mindfulness teacher, within a supportive and friendly group setting.

Next Course in London starts 19th September at the West London Buddhist Centre.

Anaesthetist, pain specialist, and Breathworks Teacher Tuula Korhonen gives a beautiful reflection on her experience of teaching the Mindfulness for Health courses, and the touching experiences of those who come for help with chronic pain and long-term health conditions.
What do they learn, what do they unlearn, and how has their experience changed by the end?
