Impact of Loving-Kindness Induction on Self-Other Related Mind-Wandering and Wellbeing: an RCT Study.

Short abstract:

Mind-wandering, described as task-irrelevant thoughts, is often self-focused and associated with negative affect. This presentation will report preliminary findings from a study which investigated whether the self-focused aspect of mind-wandering can be reduced by Loving-Kindness Meditation (LKM) that invites other-related positive thoughts in contrast to mindfulness meditation that is more self-focused. Both types of meditation were expected to reduce negative affect in comparison to a control attention induction condition and changes in state wellbeing were also investigated. The study builds on a recently developed wellbeing theory, that expands the scope of wellbeing from self-focus to caring and compassionate other-focus, and on a recently proposed notion of humanity- oriented trait, a positive personality trait of loving-kindness, compassion, and intention to give and receive love.
