11 August 2021 – What I Learned Today

  1. There is a large literature on mindfulness!
  2. There is evidence that mindfulness and neuroticism are negatively correlated.
  3. There are “Olympic” level meditators who can generate tremendous levels of gamma waves in their brains. Gamma waves seem to reflect immense satisfaction and synchrony in the brain – they occur after you have solved a difficult problem. Olympic meditators create gamma waves when they meditate.

Rose: Made progress on research

Bud: Read more mindfulness research tomorrow.

Thorn: Dealing with prepping my classroom – finding correct “dongle” was a pain today!
