Meditation’s Effects on Emotion Shown to Persist

Meditation’s Effects on Emotion Shown to Persist | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

Meditation affects a person’s brain function long after the act of meditation is over, according to new research.

 

“This is the first time meditation training has been shown to affect emotional processing in the brain outside of a meditative state,” said Gaelle Desbordes, Ph.D.

Meditation really does change our mood...and it's lasting change.

Damon Baragwanath's curator insight, August 19, 2013 10:59 PM

Personally I practice daily meditation and subjectively can vouch for the research results. Even without undergoing elaborate laboratory tests. Because you quite simply, feel the benefits yourself.

 

At a research level it has been well documented that meditation influences the nuerotransmitters in your brain, normalises blood pressure, reduces depression, anxiety and facilitates healing on the Physical, Mental and Emotional planes.

 

To conclude, if you've never experienced meditation then I highly recommend giving it a go. Although please begin slowly, be patient with yourself set small bite-size goals along the way e.g. On your intital meditation practice I'd recommend trying it for 10-15 mins and then over time increase your sessions by perhaps 5 mins each week up to a mximum of 30-60 mins.Ensure that you are warm and comfortable and focus soley on your breath - in and out, deep and slow whilst allowing thoughts to filter in and out of your mind.

 

Thank you

57 Behavioral Biases That Make Us Think Irrationally

57 Behavioral Biases That Make Us Think Irrationally | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

We all view the world through different lenses. This has to do with our upbringing, our collective experiences, and our subconscious behavioral biases. 

Until we take a deep look into why we see the world the way we do, we'll never have the capacity for real change. 

Inherent biases cause us to make snap judgments based on bad information, to be unfair and to waste time. This is clearly problematic for investors, managers and people in general.

We've collected a long list of cognitive biases from the Singularity Institute, Tim Richard's Psy-Fi Blog and more, to bring these biases to light so we can disrupt our thinking and come to terms with reality.

God Is.'s insight:

Interesting... I just finished taking a class on REBT (rational emotive behavior therapy).. In it, one of the things that Dr. Albert Ellis covers is the fact that we have irrational beliefs, which cause a lot of interference on the way we act, think and feel about life and living... To keep it simple, these irrational beliefs can be disputed, and in their place, we can then change the way we believe so we change those beliefs into rational ones...

5 Steps to Clear Mental Clutter

5 Steps to Clear Mental Clutter | Let us learn together... | Scoop.it

Clutter is anything that gets in the way of what matters most to you. It can certainly be material—unwanted trinkets and clothes that no longer fit—but clutter also can be spiritual, emotional, and psychological.

 

Regrets, anger, frustrations, anxieties, envy, and other nonproductive emotions may be depleting your limited energy. And, unfortunately, mental clutter doesn’t magically disappear; the only way to alleviate mental clutter is to deal with it.
