Music And Mindfulness Relieve Mind Fatigue

Mental fatigue is caused by prolonged periods of demanding mental activity which results in slower reaction times and attention deficits. It is often responsible for traffic accidents or poor workplace efficiency.
University of Southern Denmark researchers have demonstrated that just 12 minutes of binaural beats and 4 weeks of mindfulness training are effective recovery strategies to counteract the negative effects of mental fatigue.
Earlier research has shown that binaural beats may help suppress mind-wandering and sharpening of attentional focus, which in turn reduces the negative effect of mental fatigue. The individual might feel more relaxed and less affected by mental fatigue after listening to the music. Practicing mindfulness helps you focus on the task at hand and is effective in handling stressful situations and economizing of mental energy.
