Daily Meditation Could Increase Attention Span

Daily Meditation Could Increase Attention Span

New research on the benefits of relaxing and focusing the mind.

Naresh Kumar

Regular meditation boosts our attention spans, suggests recent research led by Katherine MacLean, an alumni of the University of California. Maclean and her team studied a group of 30 people who went on a three-month meditation retreat and gave them various tests to judge their visual attention span and their ability to make subtle visual distinctions. They found that as the meditation program went on, the participants performed better at the given tasks even after they returned from the retreat; more so, those participants who continued to meditate regularly, suggesting that meditation increases people’s attention spans.
