Mindful : December 2017
PODCASTS CBC QUIRKS & QUARKS Episode: Baseball researcher finds “the zone” in brain wave experiment Anthony Pluta, who earned his masters in neuroeconom- ics at the University of Victo- ria, British Columbia, wanted to find out how different types of brain waves correlate to an athlete being “in the zone,” hoping this could predict how well they would play. His research used the MuseTM Brain Sensing Headband, which measures brain waves using EEG (the headband’s designers have touted it as a way to “take the guesswork out of meditation”). The Muse recorded baseball hitters’ brain waves before they went to bat. Did the hitters perform better when their brainwaves reflected intense focus on the game, or when they were closer to a meditative state? The results, while preliminary, may surprise you. Pluta’s nex t question: Can training— such as mindfulness and/or meditation—allow athletes to optimize their brainwaves? FINDING MASTERY Episode: Dr. Judson Brewer—Habits, Mindfulness, and Addiction In this series, per formance coach Michael Gervais talks with people who have achieved excellence in their field. This segment features Dr. Judson Brewer, a leading researcher in the science of mindfulness, addiction, and habit change. What mindful- ness seems to offer in this contex t, Brewer explains, is a novel way to tinker with the psychological mechanisms underpinning our fears, habits, and addictive behav- iors: “When something’s uncomfor table, we tend to flee. Well, what if we instead just totally get curious about what that sensation of fear feels like in the moment, so we can see what is exactly driving us?” It’s this curiosity that pushes back our self- imposed boundaries so that we can respond wisely in any situation, truly performing at our best. The full episode is definitely wor th a listen. (For a mini-profile of Brewer and his work, see page 57.) MINDFUL SOCIAL WITH JANET FOUTS Episode: Mindful Social Media—The ABCs of Attention, Balance and Compassion In a highly topical conversa- tion, educator and author Susan Kaiser Greenland discusses her approach to mindfulness for children, teenagers, and families. She suggests parents use different ways to model or practice mindfulness as their child develops. For young children, a parent can simply be pres- ent, “without an overlayer of thinking or analyzing” the child’s activities. Pre-teens and teenagers can incorporate bits of mindfulness into their day, ideally practicing and discussing it with their peers. In a social media context, being mindful can mean we allow ourselves to notice our reactions to the online world and respond with compassion and a sense of humor—and children, just like adults, can benefit from this wisdom. ● The World Needs You! “In a world that reinvents itself on a daily basis, we empower students and credentialed coaches to adapt, integrate, and flourish from the inside out – for the betterment of all sentient beings.” – Founder & Director Ann-Marie McKelvey, LPCC, MCC ICF Master Certified Coach, Licensed Psychotherapist, Buddhist Chaplain www.MindfulnessCoachingSchool.com (505) 989-3374 Visit our website to register or explore our academic offerings for 2018.
