Mindful : June 2018
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. Don’t get even—get mindful It’s all too easy for a flash of anger to trig- ger a vengeful action—but it doesn’t have to be that way. In a rather devilish experi- ment, Northeastern University researchers had one group of college students learn mindfulness meditation, via the Headspace app, over a three-week period, while a comparison group did puzzles and word games. At the end, each student described their life goals to a person they thought was a fellow study par ticipant—and then got feedback that the listener found their speeches “boring” and “a complete waste.” Here’s the devilish par t: the students were given the opportunity to add hot sauce to a “taste test” for the listener who, they were told, hated spicy food. While both groups were angry, the medi- tators put only half as much hot sauce into the portion. Mindfulness meditation, the researchers concluded, lessens the likelihood of people behaving badly when provoked. Healing from the kitchen Work in the restaurant industry tends to be precari- ous and stressful, and often workers can’t access health- ful ways to cope. In a 2015 survey of substance use and dependence across indus- tries, the highest-ranking category was accommoda- tions and food, where 19% of employees reported using illegal drugs within the past month. To combat the high rates of addiction and overdose in these careers, a smattering of organizations are creating resources and networks for climbing out of the addiction pit. Ben’s Friends organizes support groups for attaining and maintaining sobriety, while Big Table hosts an elabo- rate dinner for food service workers once a month, which doubles as an oppor- tunity to request help for a coworker in crisis.
