Mindful : October 2018
mindful tip EAT LUNCH SILENTLY TODAY. LOOK AT WHAT’S AT THE END OF YOUR FORK OR SPOON. APPRECIATE IT. IT WILL TASTE BETTER. Open your mind, learn something new What we already know can get in the way of learning something new, a phenomenon called proactive interference. Much of what we’ve learned is stored in the hippocampus, the brain’s memory hub. Researchers in Boston were curious about whether mindfulness training might reduce proactive inter- ference, as well as increase the size of the hippocampus— similar to the way a muscle grows with repeated exercise. So they randomly assigned 79 adults to four weeks of either web-based mindfulness training, or creative writing. Each group had brain scanning before and after their training. Those who’d practiced mindfulness showed signifi- cantly less proactive inter fer- ence than the creative writing group. What’s more, the lower rates of interference were directly linked to increases in the size of the hippocam- pus, suggesting mindfulness practices that focus attention on the present may improve learning and memory. These findings may help researchers develop strategies to better aid children with learning dif- ficulties or prevent cognitive decline in aging adults. 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. – Sarah Kostin Student Coach, Yoga Teacher, MLiS “At Mindfulness Coaching School, I discovered an inspiring tribe of kind, compassionate, and empathetic individuals.
