Research on Creativity

There are also studies that correlate altered states such as lucid dreams, out-of-body experience, hypnagogia with insight (creative problem-solving), decision-making, positive behavioral changes, and pain management. Studies also show that mindfulness programs can be effective even when deployed via app, telephone, or online platforms.

Research on Mindfulness and Health

One of the most widely accepted definitions of mindfulness today is attributed to Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Kabat-Zinn has described mindfulness as an awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. There is a persuasive body of evidence to support its effects on depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. There is a body of evidence that establishes a link between stress, anxiety, and depression and weight gain and inflammatory response. If meditation can decrease stress—as evidence suggests it does even in healthy populations—then it would make sense that it may be able to somehow lessen or limit the inflammatory and aging processes associated with increased stress (such as cardiovascular disease).

2014 meta-review of 21 neuroimaging studies and about 300 meditation practitioners found 8 brain regions that consistently displayed effects, including areas that support meta-awareness, introspection, body awareness, memory, self-regulation, and emotional regulation, as well as improved communication between hemispheres of the brain. Mindfulness may support positive emotional resilience and awareness to support behavior and attitude changes.
