Mindfulness Study

Want to take part in a brief online mindfulness study? Sara Eckstein, who has participated in a number of One Dharma workshops, is doing her PhD dissertation on mindfulness and has created a research questionnaire. She needs people to participate — if you’d like to help, here’s the info:

When you take a moment to slow down and smell the roses, you are engaging in mindfulness. Mindfulness can be defined as intentionally focusing on what you are feeling, thinking or doing in the present moment. When practicing mindfulness, you simply allow your experience to be exactly as it is, rather than judging it or trying to change it. Research has shown promising results about mindfulness being very helpful in stress reduction, pain management, and even ADHD symptom alleviation.

The present study invites you to complete a 10-15 minute online survey related to your thoughts about mindfulness. Participants will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 VISA gift card. This study hopes to assess what individuals in the modern world think about mindfulness so we can better understand reasons why people may be more or less willing to practice it. This research is important because it can help inform a variety of mindfulness-based treatments so they are more effective for a diverse range of individuals with unique preferences.

Eligibility: The only requirement for eligibility is that you must be an American adult. No prior knowledge of mindfulness is required.

If you are willing, please click on this link to complete this brief, confidential survey. Feel free to share this link with others so they can also complete the survey as well. If you have additional questions or concerns contact Sarah Eckstein, M.S., at seckstei1134@gmail.com.
