The topic of mindfulness is gaining great receptivity in the American culture, and not by coincidence. Experts from MIT and Stanford University are now expressing concern with our love affair (screen addictions) with technology (known as FOMO: Fear of Missing Out, and Digital Dementia), citing an increased compromise of cognitive skills including short term and long term memory, attention span and critical thinking.
Enter the age of Mindfulness, an ancient practice to quiet the mind from sensory overload. This presentation examines the scientific data of “screen addictions“, FOMO, as well as the newest research of neuroplasticity; regeneration of brain tissue produced from meditation and relaxation.
At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain the association between digital toxicity and compromised cognitive skills.
- Define the terms “neuroplasticity” and “mindfulness meditation”.
- Demonstrate the skill of mindfulness meditation for daily practice.
