Abstract

The aim of the research was to identify the properties of attention of people engaged in physical or other activities and to consider the positive influence of meditative techniques on physical and intellectual activities. It is shown, that psychological training based on meditative techniques renders positive influence on concentration of attention while physical and intellectual activities performed by even not skilled individuals. Meditative techniques contribute to improvement of concentration/ attention while physical and intellectual activities. The authors emphasise the positive influence of meditative techniques on mental stability on a background of distracting factors. The meditative techniques do not influence the degree of inclusion in work after physical activities, whereas, the group of skilled meditating practitioners demonstrated high degree of inclusion in work after intellectual activities. The influence of meditative techniques on resisting negative distracting factors is revealed. The above mentioned results allow to recommend using psychological training based on meditative techniques for restoring the properties of attention while physical and intellectual activities, as a popular method.
