"Elogiar a inteligência das crianças, atletas ou funcionários pode prejudicar sua motivação e o seu desempenho. O foco do elogio deve concentrar-se no aprendizado que o processo gerou, e não no resultado alcançado. É sobre essa premissa que a renomada professora de Stanford Carol S. Dweck escreveu a sua obra prima chamada "Por que algumas pessoas fazem sucesso e outras não"."

"A Hipnose e a prática de auto-hipnose podem reduzir significativamente a ansiedade generalizada, tensão e stress de uma maneira semelhante a outros procedimentos de relaxamento e de auto-regulação (Schoenberger, 2000).

Do mesmo modo, o tratamento hipnótico pode ajudar nos quadros de insónia em forma idêntica a outros métodos de relaxamento  (Anderson, Dalton & Basker, 1979; Stanton, 1989).

Existem evidências encorajadoras dos efeitos benéficos dos procedimentos hipnoterapêuticos no alívio dos sintomas num vasto quadro de doenças psicossomáticas. Incluindo dores de cabeça por tensão e enxaquecas (Alladin, 1988; Holroyd & Penzien, 1990; ter Kuile et al., 1994); asma (ver revisão dos estudos clínicos de Hackman, Stern & Gershwin, 2000); problemas gastro-intestinais tais como o síndrome de cólon irritável (Galovski & Blanchard,
1998; Harvey et al., 1989; Whorwell, Prior, & Colgan, 1987; Whorwell, Prior & Faragher, 1984); verrugas (DuBreuil & Spanos,
1993); e possivelmente outros problemas dermatológicos como o eczema, a psoríase e a urticária (Shertzer & Lookingbill, 1987; Stewart & Thomas, 1995; Zachariae et al., 1996).

A Hipnose é, no mínimo, tão eficaz como outros métodos de cessação tabágica (ver revisão do estudo de Green & Lynn, 2000).
Meta-análises feitas por Law & Tang (1995) e Viswesvaran & Schmidt (1992) apontam resultados mínimos de cessação entre os
23 por cento e os 36 por cento, respectivamente.

Existem evidências de vários estudos que referem que a sua inclusão em protocolos de controlo de peso aumenta significativamente os resultados (Bolocofsky, Spinler & Coulthard-Morris, 1985; Kirsch, Montgomery & Sapirstein, 1995; Levitt, 1993).

Outros estudos em menor número, focando as crianças, indicam que todos os resultados acima referidos se estendem igualmente a crianças e adolescentes  (Hackman, Stern, & Gershwin, 2000; Sokel et al., 1993; Stewart & Thomas, 1995; ver também revisão do estudo de Milling & Costantino, 2000)."

Study Reveals Gene Expression Changes with Meditation

Study Reveals Gene Expression Changes with Meditation | Seeds That Worth Spreading - Healing, Consciousness and Human Potential Development | Scoop.it
With evidence growing that meditation can have beneficial health effects, scientists have sought to understand how these practices physically affect the body.

 

A new study by researchers in Wisconsin, Spain, and France reports the first evidence of specific molecular changes in the body following a period of meditation.

 

After eight hours of practice, meditators showed a range of genetic and molecular differences, including altered levels of gene-regulating machinery and reduced levels of pro-inflammatory genes, which in turn correlated with faster physical recovery from a stressful situation.

Mindfulness meditation may ease anxiety, mental stress

Mindfulness meditation may ease anxiety, mental stress | Seeds That Worth Spreading - Healing, Consciousness and Human Potential Development | Scoop.it
Many people practice meditation in hopes of staving off stress and stress-related health problems, even though the evidence for doing so is spotty. A new study that analyzed the results of nearly 50 solid clinical trials of meditation shows that mindfulness meditation can help ease psychological stresses like anxiety, depression, and pain. One way it does this is by training you to experience anxious thoughts or stresses in completely different and less emotionally disturbing ways. Mindfulness-based stress reduction training, developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, MA, is now widely available in cities throughout the United States. You can also learn it yourself from books or online recordings. Or try this short meditation, from the Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hahn: "Breathing in, I calm my body. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment."

How Inactivity Changes the Brain

How Inactivity Changes the Brain | Seeds That Worth Spreading - Healing, Consciousness and Human Potential Development | Scoop.it
Being sedentary appears to alter the brain in ways that may affect heart health, a new study found.

 

A number of studies have shown that exercise can remodel the brain by prompting the creation of new brain cells and inducing other changes. Now it appears that inactivity, too, can remodel the brain, according to a notable new report.

 

The study, which was conducted in rats but likely has implications for people too, the researchers say, found that being sedentary changes the shape of certain neurons in ways that significantly affect not just the brain but the heart as well. The findings may help to explain, in part, why a sedentary lifestyle is so bad for us.

 

Until about 20 years ago, most scientists believed that the brain’s structure was fixed by adulthood, that you couldn’t create new brain cells, alter the shape of those that existed or in any other way change your mind physically after adolescence.

 

But in the years since, neurological studies have established that the brain retains plasticity, or the capacity to be reshaped, throughout our lifetimes. Exercise appears to be particularly adept at remodeling the brain, studies showed.

 

But little has been known about whether inactivity likewise alters the structure of the brain and, if so, what the consequences might be.

Some basic ways we misjudge situations and people. Good to remember as we go through day-day.

Karen Bowden's curator insight, February 10, 7:23 AM

1. We trust our memories, even though they are often wrong.

2. We let our expectations decide what we're experiencing.

3. We feel losses more strongly than gains - which can lead to poor decision making.

4. We are highly prone to stereotyping people, even when we consciously try not to.

5. We are not great at predicting odds and probabilities, but we don't realize it.

Research Finds Gratitude Works Like a Muscle, with Tangible Benefits for Kids Who are Thankful

Research Finds Gratitude Works Like a Muscle, with Tangible Benefits for Kids Who are Thankful | Seeds That Worth Spreading - Healing, Consciousness and Human Potential Development | Scoop.it

Giving thanks is no longer just holiday fare. A field of research on gratitude in kids is emerging, and early findings indicate parents' instincts to elevate the topic are spot-on. Concrete benefits come to kids who literally count their blessings.

 

Gratitude works like a muscle. Take time to recognize good fortune, and feelings of appreciation can increase. Even more, those who are less grateful gain the most from a concerted effort. "Gratitude treatments are most effective in those least grateful," says Eastern Washington University psychology professor Philip Watkins.

 

Among a group of 122 elementary school kids taught a weeklong curriculum on concepts around giving, gratitude grew, according to a study due to be published in 2014 in School Psychology Review. The heightened thankfulness translated into action: 44% of the kids in the curriculum opted to write thank-you notes when given the choice following a PTA presentation. In the control group, 25% wrote notes.

Estudos mostram que a hipnose pode alterar a atividade do cérebro

O psiquiatra David Spiegel, um dos especialistas mais empenhados no estudo do tema, explica que os pacientes, de fato, entram em uma espécie de transe. Mas, longe de ficarem adormecidos, eles atingem um estado de alta concentração. “É como se a pessoa estivesse muito focada em um filme ou livro e se esquecesse de tudo que está ao redor”, explica Spiegel, diretor do Centro de Medicina Integrada da Universidade de Stanford, nos Estados Unidos..
