Just 10 Minutes of Meditation Can Help Anxious People to Focus
A recent report from the University of Waterloo in Canada shows that just 10 minutes of meditation is enough to overcome stress, anxiety, and boost your focus.
For the study, the researchers asked 82 people who considered themselves as anxious to perform a task on a computer with some interruptions during this task. Those persons who had a short meditation before starting the assignment showed better results compared to those who did not meditate.
Mengran Xu, a researcher and Ph.D. candidate at the university mentioned above, explains: “We also found that meditation practice appears to help anxious people to shift their attention from their own internal worries to the present-moment external world, which enables better focus on a task at hand.”
