Relationship between levels of depressive mood, awareness of automatic pilot, and positive mood in participants of raisin exercise

中井, あづみ

Mindfulness training for maintaining and promoting health are nearly always administered without assessing the participants’ psychological state, and therefore participants in such experiments might have different mood states. Cognitive behavioral group therapy including mindfulness trainings is easy to practiceand more effective with homogeneous participants. The relationship between group raisin exercise, a type of mindfulness training, and the participants’ depressive mood was investigated. Participants’ mood was assessed before and after raisin exercise and they were divided into three groups based on their depressive mood scores. Results indicated that the positive mood of high depressive group was lower than in the other two groups before the raisin exercise, whereas there were no differences between groups after the exercise. Moreover, the positive mood of low depressive group decreased after the exercise. It is suggested that raisin exercise functions to converge mood, because positive mood in the three groups was similar after the exercise. There were no differences between groups on awarness of automatic pilot. The need for further studies is discussed.
