≪Organizer Abstract≫
Interest in mindfulness has increased exponentially due to its potential for improving well-being. However, conventional mindfulness training requires an extensive amount of time, costs, and consistency that may not be possible for all individuals. This symposium introduces four novel forms of mindfulness training and delivery: 1) "IntenSati", a high-intensity aerobic workout with positive affirmations grounded in mindfulness; 2) "Principles of Clarity", an intensive workshop that combines mindfulness, positive psychology, and cognitive therapy to get clarity on all intra- and inter-personal issues, 3) "iMIND", an Internet-based 8-week structured mindfulness training, and (4) "newlife.330", a mobile application for mindfulness using short practices throughout the day. Data from self-report questionnaires, as well as heart rate monitoring, show that all methods prove effective in promoting mental well-being, with different emphases across methods. These results open the possibility for relatively quick, inexpensive, and consistent delivery of mindfulness-based interventions in the population.
