AOL’s Healthy Living Features Mindfulness

AOL/Huffington Post’s new Healthy Living pages launched today, with a category devoted to Mindfulness under its “Spirit” section.

The other three categories in the section are Spiritual Development, Forgiveness, and Wisdom. Posts in the mindfulness section feature such writers as Susan Kaiser Greenland, Dan Goleman and Rick Hanson.

One post, by Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child, deals with the concept of “Sympathetic Joy.” She talks about a YouTube video of Paul Simon modeling how: “Genuine happiness comes from a responsive (not reactive) mindset, one where life is not viewed as a zero sum game.”

Another post—Want a Happier Brain? Try Mindfulness— by Goleman, author of The Brain and Emotional Intelligence: New Insights, discusses the connection between mindfulness and happiness, focusing on a joint study between Jon Kabat-Zinn and Richard Davidson.
