Do online mindfulness-based interventions work? The most recent meta-analysis aggregates evidence from 97 randomised controlled trials. It concludes that mindfulness interventions can make a positive difference: Online programmes can be beneficial for improving mental health outcomes, yielding small to moderate effect sizes for symptoms of depression and anxiety, for stress, for wellbeing, and for mindfulness.

The Interpersonal Mindfulness Scale is a validated, 27-item questionnaire with four sub-scales. It measures trait mindfulness in social or interpersonal contexts. Description It is widely assumed that mindfulness is not only beneficial for intrapersonal wellbeing but can also improve our relationships, for example by listening mindfully and thus understanding better, or by not jumping […]

Mindfulness-based programmes enhance attentional and cognitive functions, improve the self-regulation of emotions and behaviour and positively influence our physiology. Given the growing evidence for such benefits, mindfulness is increasingly applied in the workplace to reap benefits in terms of employee performance, health and wellbeing as well as improve work relationships. The science surrounding workplace mindfulness […]

Loving-kindness and compassion-focused meditations are increasingly integrated into psychological practice. Furthermore, scholars discuss ethical dimensions of secular mindfulness programmes. So, what is the scientific evidence about the prosocial effects of meditation? I review four meta-analyses that investigate whether meditation increases kind and compassionate emotions and behaviours, or increase our pro-sociality, as psychological science would say. […]

Mindfulness-based approaches are meanwhile also used in sports. First evidence suggests that mindfulness might help athletes. However, the jury is still out whether this really is the case. On top of it, until now science does not tell what factors might contribute to potential benefits. Why should mindfulness help athletes? One line of argument emphasises […]

Mechanisms of mindfulness meditation: The Intention – Attention – Attitude model A good understanding how mindfulness meditation unfolds its beneficial effects is pivotal, whether scientist or mindfulness practitioner. Here, models of the mindfulness mechanisms are a true blessing. Such models direct scientists when specifying their hypotheses and when designing their studies. In turn, the results […]

What is mindfulness meditation and how did it come about? The history of mindfulness-based stress reduction Mindfulness meditation entered public awareness through the pioneering work of Jon Kabat-Zinn (2007). In the late 1970s, he extracted a few basic meditation practices from their Buddhist framework to introduce them as universally applicable – non-spiritual – exercises. His […]

Mindfulness-based approaches came to prominence because of holding promise for a variety of mental and physical health conditions, such as chronic pain, stress, recurrent depression, anxiety disorders etc. More recently, mindfulness also started to be used for treating eating disorders. There are several reasons why mindfulness may be beneficial for the treatment and management of […]

Several reviews have attempted to assess the overall effectiveness of existing mindful eating programmes for a wide range of eating-related health outcomes. Some key reviews are listed below.

Problematic food and eating behaviours, for example binge eating or emotional eating, have been linked to the increasing rates of overweight and obesity worldwide. It is widely known that many of existing weight loss interventions may reduce weight in the short term but tend not to have successful long-term outcomes. Individuals with obesity who lose […]
