Mindfulness Meditation Helps Preterm-Born : Study
A study showed that adolescents born prematurely have a high risk of developing executive, behavioral and socio-emotional difficulties. The Trial was performed with young adolescents aged 10 to 14, born before 32 weeks of gestation. To help these children overcome the difficulties, researchers have set up an intervention based on mindfulness, a technique known to have beneficial effects in these areas. Mindfulness consists in training the mind to focus on the present, concentrating on physical sensations, on breathing, on the weight of one's body, and even on one's feelings and thoughts, completely judgment-free. Scientists quickly found that mindfulness improves the regulation of cognitive, social and emotional functions and improves the brain's ability to interact with the environment. Further encouraged to practice mindfulness on a daily basis.
