Mindfulness Is Better Than Donuts

Mindfulness Is Better Than Donuts | Mindful | Scoop.it

"At school, university, or TAFE you learn material and then have to reproduce it under exam conditions. It is a tough task and no wonder a multi-million dollar industry has sprung up in “coaching” and “tuition” to help people through those examinations. According to a new study however, there is a very cheap, in fact free, alternative way to improve your performance on examinations; the practice of mindfulness."

craig daniels's insight:

The practice of mindfulness has long been known to increase a persons ability to concentrate better but, it's always good to see another study confirm what we already knew.


Mindfulness users have an edge in focus and memory when they practice on a regular basis.
