Mindful : June 2016
Research gathered from Greater Good Science Ctr. at UC Berkeley, Ctr. for Healthy Minds at U of Wisconsin-Madison, Ctr. for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School, and American Mindfulness Research Association. Graphic designer and mindfulness practi- tioner Giedrius Cibulskis lives in Lithuania, where he has no access to a mindfulness community or teacher. But that didn’t stop him from finding a mindfulness commu- nity of his own. Cibulskis, who specializes in logo design, decided to put his skills toward designing a universal symbol for mindful- ness—a water droplet and ripples, which combines the elements of space and time, past, present, and future—and spread it across the Internet. An online community has since sprouted around the symbol, with people sending him photos of tattoos and handcrafted objects featuring it. “My hope,” he says, “is that if you see the symbol—in public, personal, or virtual spaces—it will remind you to be aware of this present moment.” Researchers gave a quiz to 243 undergrads and told them they failed. Afterward, the students with greater mindful awareness rated their academic self-confidence more highly than did other classmates, and tended to look back on stressful events more positively. With early teenage crushes, nice guys and gals, surprisingly, rule. Researchers studied aggressiveness, empathy, social acceptance, and popu- larity in 531 sixth-graders in Cali- fornia and Oregon. Aggressive “bad boys” and “mean girls” may dominate the social hierarchy at school, but the kids deemed most crush-worthy were empathetic and well-accepted by their peers. 3Extra ordinary Acts of Kindness Single mother Sofia Andrade won a $200 scratch ticket on a frigid February night, and used it to get a homeless man a two-night stay in a motel. It inspired others, who gave him clothes and a haircut, and a child even gave him a Valentine. 25-year-old Nicola Congdon knits sweater vests for retired battery hens in Cornwall, England, so they can keep warm outdoors. Pet food pantries are popping up around the country, so struggling pet owners can keep their animal com- panions healthy. ● Building a Mindful Tribe Can Mindfulness Help Academic Resilience?
