If a job applicant mentioned using informal mindfulness meditations (in the interest section) as an effective concentration aid on a CV, is it likely that a potential employer would see this as a valuable thing?

I had to reread the original question after reading some of the answers provided.

I thought that the question was asking about ‘mindfulness medications’ which takes the question in a different direction. To that question I would have replied ‘No, definitely not!’

In my humble opinion, I don’t see the value in adding mention of using any sort of meditation on your CV. Nor do I see the value of adding an Interest section.

You would be better off expanding other sections of your CV/resume to show that you are the best candidate for the job. And what you do include on your resume should directly relate to the requirements of the job and your ability to fulfill them.

I believe that an Interest section is just fluff on a CV. Don’t get me wrong, there is value in having a repertoire of interests to share and demonstrate your passion, but save it for your interview where you can wow the Interviewer with your passions in life that help make you a good hire.
