Meditation’s Effects on Emotion Shown to Persist

Meditation’s Effects on Emotion Shown to Persist | Herbs & Spices - the corner-stone of healhy Living | 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.

Damon Baragwanath's insight:

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

Salt/NaCl - Good or Bad for you!

Salt/NaCl - Good or Bad for you! | Herbs & Spices - the corner-stone of healhy Living | Scoop.it
Damon Baragwanath's insight:

Salt {sodium chloride} comes in various forms. And so when discussing its Pros and Cons we must be subjective when distinguishing its properties and merits.

 

Most salt that we are familiar with, namely the cheap and highly refined product {found in most packaged and processed 'foods'} is not 'Salt' in the true sense of the word. But simply Sodium Chloride without the essential Trace-Minerals. And so is actually quite Toxic. Were as 'Real Salt' such as; Volcanic Black Salt contains over 84 mineral and trace elements including beta-carotene {vitamin A} and iodine.

 

In addition to the myriad of health benefits asociated with real salt over refined salt are the difference in taste. And it is this taste which can impart a whole different flavour to your meal times making your taste-buds jump for joy. This feel-good feeling also activates your hormones and thus promotes a greater sense of well-being.

 

To conclude. Is Salt/NaCl good or bad for you? Well, it depends entirely and what 'Salt' you use and in what quantities. Personally, if it isn't real salt {such as found in Oxo cubes and Maggi products} I wouldn't recommend that you use it at all. How ever if it is Natural Healthy Salt then yes, absolutely it's good for you and in fact vital for your health and well-being.

 

So enjoy your food and just try to be Mind-full of what you put into your mouth.

 

Wishing you all infinte health and happiness
