Mindful : February 2016
We wear busyness as a badge of honor. That badge often happens to be our phones. As Sherry Turkle, MIT professor and bestselling author notes, our phones provide us with the sweet promise that we’ll never have to be bored again, but they’re incompatible with being in a sustained relationship. After watching one fam- ily at a cafe ignore each other in favour of their screens, photographer Eric Pickersgill created “Removed,” a photo series that captures how we let our phones invade intimate moments. Writ- ing about the cafe experience on his website, Pickersgill describes how the mother stared out the window and looked “sad and alone in the company of her closest family.” And never has being “alone together” looked so haunting. Pickersgill photographed subjects performing everyday activities and then removed the phone from their hand before he took the photo.

Are people trained in mindfulness meditation slower to seek riches? Figuring that excessive reward-seeking, such as chasing financial payoffs, may make for poorer well-being, a team offered mindful meditators and control group mem- bers to monetary incentives. Using MRIs they checked brain activity in areas affected by rewards and anticipation of rewards. The payoff? Meditators seemed less susceptible to monetary incentives than non-meditators.
