Augments Concentration Abilities

meditation-image-67In a study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania, results revealed that those who practiced meditation, even at an introductory level, improved overall performance and the ability to hone their attention. The study was the first to explore meditation’s effects on the three subcomponents of attention, including the ability to manage goals and prioritize, the ability to remain alert to the surrounding environment, and the ability to focus voluntarily on specified information. The results demonstrate meditation’s effectiveness as a non-medical approach for enhancing cognitive abilities and focus across diverse groups of individuals. Furthermore, the researchers note that their findings have important implications for employee performance and training in the workplace.
