Mindful : October 2019
meditation prac- tice and assigned half to a medita- tion group, and the other half to a waitlist. Then everyone com- pleted a survey about their mind- fulness, stress, and coping flex- ibility. Meditation group members received two- and-a -half hours of instruction, consisting of half- hour-long g uided meditations and body scans, and were given a CD of the practices. They were asked to meditate at home for six days and record how often they prac- ticed, and their mood and stress levels. After six days, the meditation group reported greater “disposi- tional mindful- ness” (the ability to be nonjudg- mentally aware of thoughts in the present moment) and less stress than those in the non-meditation group, along with a significant boost in coping flexibility. Two weeks later, the meditators’ cop- ing flexibility had increased further, but had dropped among the non-meditators. the Institute for Learning Sciences and Teacher Education at Aus- tralian Catholic University, educa- tors in 20 Aus- tralian schools volunteered to participate in a school-based study. Eighty-five teachers from 10 schools attended an eight-week mindfulness- based program. Another 100 teachers from 10 different schools did not. After eight weeks, teachers who’d practiced mindfulness reported less stress, better sleep, and more mindfulness, self-compassion, and ability to use thoughts to help regulate emo- tions, compared to controls. There were no differ- ences between the groups in teachers’ percep- tions of their ability to engage students, provide effective instruc- tion, or manage behavior in class, but students said they felt more connected to teachers who’d completed the program than those who hadn’t. Students said they felt more connected to teach- ers who had completed the mindfulness program than those who hadn’t. MINDFULNESS FOR EDUCA- TORS IMPROVES WELL-BEING Nearly 85% of school teach- ers say they’re facing burnout. Eight weeks of mindfulness- based instruc- tion may reduce stress, increase sleep, and pro- mote health and well-being even weeks later, a new study finds.
