Abstract [en]

The purpose of this project was to explore mindfulness based on the literature Mindfulness från början by Charlotte Mandrup and Mindfulness i hjärnan by Åsa Nilsonne. The research was based on the following three questions: What view of mindfulness is mentioned in Mandrup´s and Nilsonne´s books? What similarities and differences are there between the books? How can the interpretations of mindfulness that Mandrup and Nilsonne have presented be understood?

 

Both Mandrup and Nilsonne agree that mindfulness does not have a formal and clear definition. Mindfulness is about being conscious of the present and being mentally aware. The main differences between the two books were that Mandrup claims that mindfulness lets people handle the big and small issues that they might face in life whilst Nilsonne means that mindfulness has its place in the human brain.

 

The conclusion is, therefore that when a definition of the concept is not clear or formal, it can cause some issues. A big thing that separates the books is that Nilsonne focuses on the connection between mindfulness and the human brain, how with the help of mindfulness an individual can train and shape their own brain. Mandrup focuses instead on mindfulness as a method and a technique to effectively limit the stress and break negative patterns of life.
