    An eight-week programme of mindfulness meditation improves quality of life and reduces fear of activity in heart attack patients, according to research presented today at ESC Acute CardioVascular Care 2021, an online scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). “A heart attack is a serious life-threatening event and survivors can suffer from low quality of life,” said study author Dr. Canan Karadas of Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey. “One reason is a fear of movement, called kinesiophobia, which limits daily activity due to concerns of another heart attack.” “Mindfulness refers to the mental state achieved by focusing awareness on the present moment, including thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations,” continued Dr. Karadas. “It has drawn increasing attention for treating chronic conditions such as high blood pressure. Our study examined its effect on fatigue, kinesiophobia, and quality of life after an acute myocardial infarction.”
