A new study reveals that daily mindfulness meditation can help reduce individuals' tendency to avoid negative information.
The practice of regular mindfulness meditation allows people to better process uncomfortable emotions, thus enabling them to handle negative information more objectively.
The study concluded that meditation could foster better decision-making since meditators are more likely to consider information, even if it could elicit a negative response.
This counteracts the cognitive bias that typically leads individuals to disregard potentially unsettling information.
