BOOST O2 >> Turn down the volume - A Mindful Choice


by Dr. Damigo; PhD

Researchers at the University of Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, reported from their study of mindfulness that mindfulness practitioners were far more able to "turn down the volume" on distracting information and re-focus their efforts.


A study published in the Archives of General Psychiatry reported that mindfulness meditation is as effective as antidepressant medication in treating depression.
According to a study published in the journal, Psychoneuroendocrinology, the positive effects of mindfulness begin at the cellular level, altering levels of telomerase immune cells.

A study by Kirk Brown at the University of Rochester found that people high on a mindfulness spactrum, have greater ability to shape what they do and what they say.

Daniel Goleman, an expert on emotional intelligence in leadership and organizations, contests  in his book, Primal Leadership,  that the first tasks of management has nothing to do with leading others, but rather dealing with the challenge of knowing and managing oneself.

If leaders do not allocate time for self-reflection and mindfulness, this knowing of oneself presents a serious challenge.
Richard Boyatzis, professor of organizational behavior at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University, and author of Resonant Leadership,  contests that good leaders are in-tune with those around them through self awareness and relationship management, guided by mindfulness.
