Questions related to Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a very popular technique used to support mental health, there are varying attitudes towards it. However, most research has only focused on the positive side of mindfulness. For this study I am looking for people who are sceptical about mindfulness (so you doubt whether the claims made about it are true or whether it's useful) and who are willing to take part in an interview study for my undergraduate dissertation.
Taking part will give you the opportunity to have your opinion heard and contribute to research that could help to provide a fairer representation of mindfulness. The confidential interview would be 30 - 60 minutes and would take place over Zoom at a time that suits you. You must be over 18, speak fluent English, and have access to a stable internet connection and a private space where you will not be interrupted for the duration of the interview. If you think you meet the criteria and are interested in taking part please read the participant information sheet and consent form and provide your name and email address at the survey here: https://qfreeaccountssjc1.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eJXyOYkiInZQChM
I want to measure the effect of a kind of mindfulness training on stress. For this purpose, I want to create stressful conditions for the participants in the pre-test and post-test by using VR and measuring their stress before and after the mindfulness exercises by measuring their body temperature and heart rate. For such research, what kind of video or task should I show the participants on the VR device, and for how long?
The direct relationship between wellbeing and social media addiction is -. 33 (p=.0026)
The indirect relationship between these two via mindfulness is -.28 (Lower CI-Higher CI were both negative).
What does this mean?
I have collected data to answer the question “Does Neuroticism Mediate the effect of a Mindfulness Intervention?” I Have collected pre-intervention Mindfulness Score and a post intervention measure (both scale). I also took a neuroticism score before the intervention to estimate the level of trait neuroticism (also scale). There was no control group.
So far I have managed to demonstrate with a paired-samples t-test that there is a significant difference between pre and post-mindfulness scores, I have used Pearson correlation to show that mindfulness and neuroticism are negatively correlated at baseline (both of these are a replication of the existing findings).
For the mediator part, I intended initially to use the model from another study which divided the neuroticism score into low, low/medium, medium high and high as a quasi-independent variable. However, the scores in my data were too clustered together without much of a range in the group (there was a high attrition rate ~45%) so these 4 groups are not possible. I have tried running a repeated measures ANOVA, where I dichotomize neuroticism into low/high, which I know is not the best idea as I will artificially restrict the variance in my data. This does however produce quite a sensible looking plot and desirable output for my study but I know it's not sound practice.
I have also tried doing what I think is a repeated measures ANCOVA, with time at 2 levels as a within subjects factor (pre and post-intervention score) and neuroticism as a covariate but I have nothing to put into the between subjects factor so I’m not sure if it’s accurate. It is giving neuroticism a value of 3.45 in the model but I have no idea what that number means or how to interpret it. It also produces a sensible looking plot showing the increase in mindfulness pre to post-intervention. I have also tried is computing a mindfulness score difference and correlating that with the level of mindfulness which also gives me a medium size positive correlation <0.05.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am really desperate!
I am doing research exploring the relationship between mindfulness and burnout, with a mediator of physical activity. Is ANCOVA the most appropriate method for data analysis?
IV: mindfulness (numeric variable); mediator: physical activity (categorical variable); DV: burnout (numeric variable/ categorical).
Hi, I'm not sure if it is suitable to use One Way Repeated Measure ANOVA for my research. My research's purpose is to see if online mindfulness intervention is effective in improving subjective well-being (SWB) and quality of life (QOL) of university staff. The situation here is, I have collected data through questionnaire at 4-time points (T1, T2, T3, T4). After T4, only 31 (n=31) subjects remained with the study. The questionnaire contains items about mindfulness, SWB, and QOL. Meanwhile, the subjects were receiving treatments through online mindfulness intervention. So, I want to analyze if the intervention is really effective by comparing their mindfulness, SWB, and QOL scores at T2, T3, and T4 with the score at T1.
Our paper is about adaptations of practices from the East in the West, including yoga, mindfulness and other forms of meditation. We are looking for references that support that practices are compromised when not applied in full. This could be because of people or organisations 'cherry-picking' what suits them while ignoring the philosophy in which they are embedded, or other examples that have been soundly explored, or a related theory.
Thanks in advance, scholars!
Does anybody know of a self-report measure indexing the "runner's high" phenomenon (outside of flow scales)?
The term “runner’s high” (RH) is commonly used to describe the feeling of euphoria experienced by athletes engaged in endurance running. This state is usually characterized by (decreased) anxiety, relaxation, analgesia, euphoria, effortless running experience, and a “lost sense of time”.
i am writing my master thesis about the work strains in german hospitals and the role of mindfulness as a moderator in the work strain- stress relationship.
Therefore I use process. In the HLR I controlled for the influence of Covid-19 for their working conditions, but the beta wasn't significant.
Now I am wondering if I should implement this control Variable in the moderation analysis as well? I guess one disadvantage would be one more predictor which could reduce the power?
What would you do?
Since I am a leadership student, i had looked at
1. Implementation and its impact on experienced teachers.
2. Mindfulness for leaders and teachers
Could you help me to frame my research question? Any suggestions and critiques on both the topics are also welcome.
This is my first attempt at a meta-analysis. Advice would be much appreciated!
I am looking at the effects of a specific mindfulness intervention on emotion regulation looking at the DERS questionnaire as the measure of emotion regulation.
I am analysing both the subscales scores and total scores.
I have 5 out of 10 papers that have provided the pre and post means and SDs for the subscale scores and 8/10 papers who have provided the pre and post means and SDs for the total scores.
How would I go about analysing this data? 3 studies have more than one mindfulness intervention condition and one has no control group but multiple mindfulness intervention conditions.
I would be interested in getting in touch with professionals who are working with adults and have used Emotional Intelligence activities, Social and Emotional Learning activities and Mindfulness tasks.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I am looking for a scale measuring dependence on your supervisor to reach your target (e.g., reaching a good grade in your dissertation).
I already found the perceived power scale by Hinkin and Schriesheim (1989), but this doesn't really fit to what I am looking for.
I am really thankful for any advice given.
Mindfulness is included in 3º therapy generations, but maybe the Principal MBI instructors (or MBSR, MBCT) are using a cognitive model.
I’m a student of philosophy and religious studies. I’m also someone who practices mindfulness techniques to deal with stress and the effects of some permanent physical injuries. I’ve been impressed by how mindfulness has improved my life, and I’m interested in learning more about its history, how it works, and how it affects others. As part of a research project, I’m asking mindfulness practitioners some basic questions about their relationship with mindfulness to better understand how people use, understand, and benefit from their practice.
If you’re interested in participating, please complete my short survey and feel free to pass it along to others. It only takes about 3 minutes since it consists of just 3 demographics questions and 4 questions about mindfulness. It is 100% anonymous and will not ask for any contact information. The survey closes at 5PM EST on April 2nd, 2021.
Being resilient in life, our work, and what we do has always believed to foster organisational success. There can be physical resilience, emotional resilience/psychological resilient.
Is being physically and psychologically resilient healthy for our well-being?
Are there limits to being resilient? How much is too much of being resilient and how does this affect our well-being?
Huge and vague inquiry from a non-professional active in mental health social work: I have read that there is not much evidence for the value of "I-messages." This leads me to ask about a lot of things I use:
-mindfulness in trauma reactions-
-challenging questions to people [in therapy, although I am not a therapist]
-Broken-record technique to avoid arguments
-Application of motivational interviewing to misinformation, e.g. "I don't want to have therapy because only crazy people need therapy."
-very simple screening questions

I've got a question regarding deciding whether the short vs full questionnaire is better at predicting or showing an association with a variable of interest. I've used the full and the short form of the Five Facets of Mindfulness (FFMQ) to look into its association with various variables of interest (ranging from ordinal to continuous). I get not only different magnitudes of associations (e.g., rho = .3 vs rho = .5) but I also get different number of significant factors (there are five factors in the FFMQ) depending on whether the short of the full version of the questionnaire was used. This suggests that the addition or removal of some of the questions in having quite a significant difference. What tests would you propose I use to get to the bottom of this? Is there a test that can tell me with some assurance whether the short or the full FFMQ is more appropriate?
P.S To complicate things further, the full FFMQ questionnaire has around 500 participants while the short form has around 1000.
I have conducted an experimental design on exploring the effectiveness of mindfulness skills on students' psychological wellbeing. I aim to test if there is a significant change on students' levels of depression ,anxiety, emotion regualtion and mindfulness skills, depending on the intervention they have received.
The control group received no intervention and the intervention group trained and practiced mindfulness for 21 days. I test my sample twice, pre-intervention (to get a baseline) and post intervention (one group have received the intervention whereas other group is not received but tested).
In this case, I am confused if I need to use time as independent variable or not. Which ANOVA would work best ?
MAny thanks in advance.
I am looking for a mindful parenting scale to use with a cohort of parents (predominately mothers) who have personality disorder related difficulties, with a preference for measures with less than 20 items.
I have thought about using the Interpersonal Mindfulness in Parenting (IEM-P) scale (10 items) and would appreciate hearing anyones experiences with using this scale, or suggestions for an alternative.
Have you ever wondered if you’re making the right decisions? Or, if your choices reflect who you are and what you want from life?
Well, help me find it out.
If interested, you need to fill in this survey: https://lnkd.in/gAT44GK It’s quite intense as it unravels a quite complicated matter. Still, your participation is not only going to help me but the entire scientific community willing to understand how we can be our better versions.
For your attention, thank you! And, for your participation, double thank you! - Don’t forget to share this survey with your family and friends. With more people involved, better to predict correlations!

I am an MSc student at The University of Edinburgh. My team and I are in the process of designing an observational study in which participants psychological well-being will be measured pre and post a tree planting activity in the Scottish Borders. We are interested in using the State Mindfulness Scale.
Has anyone worked with this?
For my undergraduate research project, my experimental group is watching a mindfulness meditation video (15 minutes) to relax them. I want a control group to watch a video as well, but one that isn't too exciting or relaxing, but neutral. Any suggestions?
I am considering a hypo-egoic mindset (e.g. Leary & Terry, 2012) to mediate the effects of mindfulness meditation on a cognitive outcome. Simply using a mindfulness scale seems insufficient to me, because a hypo-egoic mindset captures more than any existing conceptualization of mindfulness.
The conceptually most near scale that I´ve found is the Quiet Ego Scale (Wayment, Bauer & Sylaska, 2015), but it doesn´t really fit my purpose for several reasons. Particularly, the growth subscale is contrary to the present-focused quality of a hypo-egoic mindset.
I would be very grateful, if you have any suggestions :)
Hi, I have a very basic question, so I'm sorry for wasting your time. I conducted a 2-way IM ANOVA on the moderating effects of ethnicity (as a dichotomous variable - we are very limited in what variables we had data for) on the relationship of mindfulness and identity exploration in emerging adults. I was very surprised to receive a non-significant result for all my analyses, particularly given the established relationship between mindfulness and identity exploration, but I can't work out why. Could someone point me in the right direction to obtain answers, please? I did have very unequal group sizes, which I couldn't correct, based on the limitations set by the assessment.
In the literature of mindfulness, its aspects are more commonly referred to as "facets" instead of "dimensions" (e.g., attention, awareness, etc). I wonder if the two are interchangeable?
However, if so, I still do not understand while the earlier is preferred than the latter.
I've been testing a mindfulness scale consisting of 6 variables. (n=375). I tried all factor retention and extraction methods and their combinations with promin rotation. BIC suggests 2 dimensions, while all others (PA, MAP, HULL) suggest 1. However, when I run the EFA for 1 and 2 factors the two factor solutions always result in a better fit (RMSEA) and the cumulative proportion of variance based on eigen values is over 75% whereas for the 1 factor models it is always under 55%. The inter-factor correlation in the 2 factor model is 0.62. Factor loadings in the one factor model are between 0.6-0.7 while in the 2 factor model 0.7-0.8 . So, should I believe the factor retention methods or the EFA results to choose between the 1 and 2 factor model? I am using FACTOR software by Lorenzo Seva.
I'm writing a protocol to assess the influence of MBSR (8-week) on patients diagnosed w/chronic illness. I'd like to assess pre- and post mindfulness trait.
My personal experience has been positive with a mindfulness based application on my cell phone. I was wondering if there is availability, or rather potential to develop such applications in more languages to cater to larger population of people.
I'm looking for a suitable protocol in mindfulness-based biofeedback for athletes anxiety and stress management.
I would really appreciate a copy of the FMI-13/14 in the Japanese language version. I would like to continue my mindfulness research using a Japanese speaking population for my next study. Any and all assistance obtaining this is greatly appreciated. I’ve read studies that used it; but, I cannot seem to find a copy of it.
Hello Deep Thinkers,
Would like to invite you to become involved in a discussion related to my research on wage-earners/blue-collar workers and their avoidance of Mind-Body Practices (i.e., yoga and meditation) to manage stress. More specifically, why are wage-earners so under-engaged in meditation and/or yoga for stress relief in or out of the workplace, in-spite of re-enforcing positive health literature on Mind-Body Interventions?
Thank you in advance for your time and attention,
I have conducted a research and have some data of mindfulness scale, it's reliable and valid. Lower total score means people are more mindful, and I want to see its relationship on people's choice on employee choice for a company. Which analysis should I use? Any help will be appreciated!
I don't seem to find any further details on the project. I'm quite curious about the project as I've been practicing regular (1-2 hours / day) meditation for many years and have find it immensely helpful in personal, professional and social life. So I would be very interested to know bit more about the project. Many thanks.
I am writing my thesis on the effects of mindfulness meditation on reading in dyslexic children and I am looking for research on how reading works in the brain (what areas of the brain are activated, what mechanisms are involved...) that I would like to relate to the areas of the brain that are activated during meditation.
I know that now, thanks to neuroimaging, we have more accurate data but I can't find any solid documents on it.
Thank you for reading my message and I hope to find answers here.
Good continuation in your work and research.
Je fais mon mémoire sur les effets de la méditation de pleine conscience sur la lecture des enfants dyslexiques et je cherche des recherches sur le fonctionnement de la lecture dans le cerveau (quelles zones du cerveau sont activées, quels mécanismes sont mis en jeu ...) que j'aimerais mettre en relation avec les zones du cerveau qui sont activées pendant la méditation.
je sais que maintenant, grâce à la neuro imagerie, nous avons des données plus précises mais je ne trouvent pas de documents solides là dessus.
Merci d'avoir lu mon message et j'espère trouver ici des réponses.
Bonne continuation dans vos travaux et vos recherches.
Does anyone know of research comparing smaller vs longer doses of mindfulness training effects? In many populations (e.g., surgeons, parents with children, etc.) attending a weekly 2.5 hour MBSR class for 8 or 9 weeks is not feasible. What about more shorter duration classes?
I'd like to complete a meta-analysis of studies and/or data relating to the effectiveness of mindfulness in reducing suicidal thoughts for those at risk.
The first question indicates towards experience of an individual as an employee and his/her interactions with a peer, senior, boss, or the organization (norms/rules/regulations) itself.
The second question indicates to share various factors that contribute building the perception of employees.
Do you know any intervention program that performs aerobic exercise with teachers to improve their wellbeing or similar variables related to your health (stress, anxiety, burnout, depresion?
There are numerous intervention programs that use techniques like yoga or mindfulness but I have not found one that is based on aerobic exercise.
I am conducting research on the subject and I would like to document myself. Thank you.
1. Intra-personal level (or individual level)
2. Inter-personal level (e.g., peer level, subordinate level, boss/supervisor level, and organization level)
I would like to expand on research by Chang, Kuo, Huang and Lin (2018), who used the AX version of the continuous performance test to assess the effect of mindfulness training on participants' abilities to shift between reactive (bottom-up stimulus-driven processes) and proactive (top-down goal oriented processes) modes of cognition.
However, I don't think the CPT provides a good assessment of how the modes are shifted in day-to-day life. To clarify, it doesn't take into account the role of context in influencing which mode is most likely to be dominant at a particular time.
Thus, I would like to assess these dual modes of cognition in a way that takes into account the influential role of situational demands in governing how people switch between both modes.
I need a research paper/theory related to fear of flying anxiety (aviophobia) and mindfulness. Can anyone guide me?
In this study there are two groups (experimental and control group). The experimental group did a mindfulness intervention and both groups completed 3 different mindfulness questionnaires (each with sub scales) pre and post intervention. After the intervention (and treatment as usual for the control group) both groups were assessed on three different questionnaires that assess risk of violence.
So, I have four IVs (group and pre-test mindfulness scores on three different questionnaires) and six (!) DVs (post-test mindfulness scores on three different questionnaires and post-test risk of violence scores on three different questionnaires). One of the risk of violence questionnaire scores is categorical data; all other variables are continuous. Age is a control variable.
I want to find out:
a) if the mindfulness intervention significantly increased mindfulness versus treatment as usual
b) if risk of violence was significantly lower in the experimental versus control group
c) if a) and b) are true then is the reduced risk of violence in the experimental group due to increased mindfulness.
Is the best way to analyse this with three separate analyses e.g.
a) Repeated-measures ANCOVA with group & all 3 mindfulness pre-test scores as IVs and post-mindfulness scores as DVs?
b) One-way MANCOVA with with group as the IV and the risk of violence scores as DVs?
c) Not sure what comes next??
If you read to the end and can advise, thank you!
In this study, one group of ex-offenders did a mindfulness intervention (there was no control group). They completed three mindfulness questionnaires before and after the intervention. Their risk of offending and several other demographic variables (e.g. age, length of sentence) were also recorded before the intervention.
I've been asked to analyse the effect of the intervention on mindfulness scores and look at whether any of the independent variables predict this.
What's the best analysis for this? I have multiple independent variables and dependent variables but only one group and I can't work out the best statistical test.
Is it possible to conduct Correlation analysis between variables that has pretest and posttest measures? If yes, how? And if no, what kind of analysis should I be conducting?
I would like to see if mindfulness correlates well with psychological wellbeing and perceived stress. However, I collected the data in a pre and post intervention manner (for mindfulness, psychological wellbeing and perceived stress) whereby mindfulness teaching was the intervention. Seeing that I have both pre and post scores, I was confused as to how should I conduct Pearson's correlation to see the relationship between mindfulness and perceived stress as well as mindfulness and psychological wellbeing.
***Some researchers suggested averaging the Pretest & Posttest scores while some have suggested using repeated measures correlation (rmcorr).
The literature so far ensues the probable discrepancies in the present mindfulness instruments either at conceptual level or psychometric level. I am going to be conducting my doctoral research in Pakistan and I am very much excited to introduce this phenomenon as an intervention or as a clinical endeavour. But i believe that this construct needs to be studied and understood as by the population it is being intended for and for that I was thinking of establishing an instrument that captures the Buddhist flavor ( having a more religious or faith-based tinge) as well as the Western psychological perspective (being relatively more tangible) .I was concerned about where to start, should I start from scratch (by first developing a working conceptual model) or should I use some earlier developed instruments as my baseline, like FFMQ ?
Any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated!!
I am very interested in understanding the specific benefits of practicing mindfulness in nature as well as the associated mechanistic aspects.
Are there any studies comparing the impact of the same mindfulness technique practiced in indoor vs. outdoor settings? For example a study comparing a group that practices Open Monitoring meditation indoors to a group that practices Open Monitoring meditation in a park or wild natural area.
I was wondering if you have any results which you could share?
I am conducting MSc research on brief mindfulness and displaced aggression. I'm curious whether similar mechanism can govern both types of aggression and whether mindfulness affects them similarly.
How long is your mindfulness intervention?
I want to know about mindfulness, its advantages if any.
Please do not attach any file. Be precise in your reply.
Most of the articles i found describe a small positive relationship between mindfulness and creativity in general. I have not seen any studies exploring this relationship with creativity performance at work. Im writing my thesis about this subject and would appreciate good literary suggestions. Thanks in advance!
I am doing a PhD in nature based mindfulness and right now I am searching for intervention studies in the field.
In 2012 we had a project for veterans with PTSD in our therapeutic forest garden Nacadia. Maybe you have heard from Bo Netterstrøm. I was head of the outdoor treatment, combining yoga, mindfulness and nature.
If you would care to share, you are very welcome to write or call.
Best, Dorthe Djernis

Role of mindfulness at work/businesses/leadership and day-to-day life. It is interesting to see business organisations such as BlackRock (in New York), World Bank, Google, Harvard Business Review and New York Times are interested and in conversation about contemplative practices as means of enhancing their businesses/work and overall productivity.
It is great to see the founder and director of the Centre for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Dr Richard Davidson (with over 25 years of research engagement in the area) is willing to receive the criticisms from all ends on contemplative/mindful approaches so that he can address the concerns of those who are not convinced yet.
"With distractions and poor well-being accounting for $650 billion in losses per year in the United States, this discussion focuses on ways to address the problem and give people the tools they need to thrive."
It is indeed great to see a positive trend! Training kids/children to turn inwards (as opposed to the external world) to gather a wealth of useful information towards enhanced learning is very important.
Much of the research on mind-wandering points to the costs of mind-wandering, with only a few exceptions. (See Mooneyhan & Schooler, "The Costs and Benefits of Mind-Wandering: A Review")
This may be due in part to the examination of it as part of the upsurge in mindfulness.
Mind-wandering is appears to be a basic aspect of the human mind, but what are the evolutionary reasons for it if it has more costs than benefits? What are we missing here?
How mindfulness is related to productivity!
"During my study of the relationship between mindfulness and leader effectiveness, 100% of the leaders I interviewed (all having months or years of prior mindfulness training and practice) linked mindfulness to improvement in their personal and professional lives. The majority described this as being significant, often using terms such as “profound,” or “life-changing.” "
Background: Lee et al., (Pain, 2015) have shown in a meta-analysis that the primary mediators are distress, pain-related fear of movement, and self-efficacy. To my awareness, improvements in mindfulness and pain acceptance have only been shown to be associated with improvements in disability, but is there data on the potential mediating strength of these factors?
Dualism and non-dualism have been discussed by humans from different cultures for millennia. Despite the growth of research into meditation and mindfulness there has been very little work in this particular field. There are extensive expositions of nondual awareness in a number of spiritual and philosophical traditions but little contemporary scientific enquiry (that I have found). I'd welcome signposts to work in the same or related fields to supplement the few papers so far discovered.
I am currently designing a research focused on reading comprehension which includes an intervention program (pre/post measures). I was suggested to control baseline attentional level, since the nature of the intervention is expected to be highly related with attention. Now, the intervention will be implemented in a classroom context, so that there will be collective activities as well as individual ones. Because of time constraints, it would ideal to measure all participants at once, if possible. Alternatively, a brief test could do. The question is: does anyone know about some attention test that could collectively applied (say, in a computer lab)? If that is not possible, can any suggest some brief digital test? Test reliability is highly valued too.
i want to run a mindfulness program in an elementary school in order to improve students reading comprehension. i am not sure that if it is effective or not.
Dear friends and supporters,
I am urgently looking for participants for a small study among refugees during and after the asylum-cases. These are questionnaires as a "warm-up" for a larger survey. So far I have them in English and Arabic. Topic: spirituality and quality of life.
I thank you for support.
Hello! I am a student working on a project using mindfulness training in middle school students. We are looking for several assessments for before/after the mindfulness training. We have found some but are specifically in need of:
1) Mindfulness Thinking and Action Scale for Adolescence
2) Portrait Values Questionnaire (or other values questionnaire tested in a young adolescent population)
Any advice/help is appreciated. Thank you!
Listings of therapy components are needed to fit intervention descriptions onto. I will not define 'components' here to avoid an unwanted narrowing of responses.
