Study: Mindfulness May Help You Feel Less Pain
According to a new study, performed at Wake Forest School of Medicine, USA, suggests that mindful people may feel less pain.
During the study, a team of researchers analyzed data received from the study published in 2015 where 76 healthy volunteers completed a clinical measurement of mindfulness to determine their baseline levels. Whole brain analyses showed that higher dispositional mindfulness during painful hear was connected to the greater deactivation of the posterior cingulate cortex, a brain region of the default mode network.
The study's lead author, Fadel Zeidan, Ph.D., assistant professor of neurobiology and anatomy at the medical school, part of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, explains: “Mindfulness is related to being aware of the present moment without too much emotional reaction or judgment. We now know that some people are more mindful than others, and those people seemingly feel less pain.”
