“One surprising outcome of the study is that higher mindfulness scores were not associated with lower hot flash and night sweat symptom scores, Dr. Sood says. One theory as to why is that the amount of distress experienced from night sweats and hot flashes may have more to do with individual personality traits rather than the symptoms themselves.”

In Menopausal Symptoms In-Depth: What the Science Says About Complementary Health Approaches for Menopause Symptoms – Mind and Body Practices: Mindfulness the (United States) National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) elaborate on:

“In an NCCIH-funded study, mindfulness meditation training reduced the bothersomeness of hot flashes in menopausal women and led to improvements in anxiety, perceived stress, self-reported sleep quality, and quality of life. However, the intensity of hot flashes did not change.”
