Mindful : October 2015
INSTEAD OF EARPLUGS? Possible good news if your street is being jackhammered: Mindfulness practice might soften your reactions to such clamor. When researchers at King’s College London tested three groups of meditators, they found that the most experienced medita- tors became more easily habitu- ated to star tling noises. Fur ther study is needed, but if you’re living with noise, researchers say mindful- ness may be worth a try. You know meditation matters when it becomes part of history in the making. In July, two Swiss pilots, André Borschberg and Bertrand Piccard, flew the Solar Impulse 2, a fully solar-powered airplane, across the Pacific in an epic five-day journey from Japan to Hawaii. Among their companions on the trip were yoga and meditation. EASE ARTHRITIS PAIN WITH MEDITATION “ Yoga and meditation gives us bal- ance and keeps us in the right state of mind, which is very crucial when you are on such a difficult mission,” said Borschberg. He and Piccard not only flew the Solar Impulse 2—they also conceived of the project and over- saw the plane’s construction. With a cockpit just big enough for the two pilots to sit in (the toilets are built into the seats), the plane’s wings are covered with 17,000 solar cells that charge its batteries in-flight during the day, keeping it powered through the night. This flight was the eighth leg of a longer quest to fly around the world and prove sustainable energy has a place in the future. It also broke the record for the longest non-stop flight by any aircraft in history.
