Everyone tends to be right and feel certain about things and this helps us to experience a sense of cognitive ease(feel good mood ).
We tend to believe what is easier to understand. Cognitive ease feels good, but it gives us a false sense of security because it makes us think we understand far more than we actually do. Cognitive Ease
Cognitive strain occurs when our brain is making multiple mental calculations, reading instructions in a poor or faint font, decoding complicated language or when we are in a bad mood (or even just frowning).
Mindfulness is proven to help reducing chronic pain and relieve stress, treat heart disease, lower blood pressure. But when we consider the practice, mindfulness seems to be more intence.
Does mindfulness trigger cognitive strain or helps us to keep cognitive ease?
