Empirically supported benefits of mindfulness

The term “mindfulness” has been used to refer to a psychological state of awareness, the practices that promote this awareness, a mode of processing information and a character trait. To be consistent with most of the research reviewed in this article, we define mindfulness as a moment-to-moment awareness of one’s experience without judgment. In this sense, mindfulness is a state and not a trait. While it might be promoted by certain practices or activities, such as meditation, it is not equivalent to or synonymous with them.

Several disciplines and practices can cultivate mindfulness, such as yoga, tai chi and qigong, but most of the literature has focused on mindfulness that is developed through mindfulness meditation — those self-regulation practices that focus on training attention and awareness in order to bring mental processes under greater voluntary control and thereby foster general mental well-being and development and/or specific capacities such as calmness, clarity and concentration (Walsh & Shapiro, 2006).

Researchers theorize that mindfulness meditation promotes metacognitive awareness, decreases rumination via disengagement from perseverative cognitive activities and enhances attentional capacities through gains in working memory. These cognitive gains, in turn, contribute to effective emotion-regulation strategies.

The Language of Emotional Intelligence

Psychologist and sociologist Jeanne Segal, Ph.D has some ideas about emotional IQ and she’s put them into an enjoyable and useful book called The Language of Emotional Intelligence. Unlike many other books about emotional intelligence, this book doesn’t just talk about what emotional intelligence is and why it’s important (although it does spend some time laying a foundation if you’re new to the topic)— it provides the reader with five specific methods for helping a person to learn to improve upon their own emotional intelligence.
