Simple Daily Tips for Mindfulness at Work

Simple Daily Tips for Mindfulness at Work | psycologics | Scoop.it
Mindfulness training is about your life. It isn't about the time you meditate on a cushion or chair. It is about learning to be awake for each moment of your life. So bringing your training into the moments in the day is a necessary requirement.

"Purposeful Pauses," or what Karen Sothers describes as "mini-moments," remembering to stop, breath & take in the good over time will retrain the brain to focus on the positive insted of jumping to the negative. 

 

The goal is to have more conscious choices. Unless you have intentionally trained your mind to give at least equal attention to what is working, wonderful and satisfying, you probably tend to focus first on what is negative.

Antonio Damasio: The quest to understand consciousness | Video on TED.com

Ogni mattina, tutti noi ci svegliamo e riprendiamo coscienza: si tratta di un fenomeno meraviglioso ma, cosa riprendiamo esattamente? Il neouroscienziato Antonio Damasio utilizza questa semplice domanda per offrirci una visione di come il nostro cervello crea la coscienza di sé.

Scegliere, costruire relazioni, organizzare mappe, connetterle. Una possibilità che abbiamo in ogni momento della nostra giornata: noi siamo protagonisti della nostra vita, mai spettatori passivi... una interessante finestra sulle connesioni tra l'esperienza cosciente e il substrato neurobiologico.

Negative Emotions are Key to Well-Being

Negative Emotions are Key to Well-Being | psycologics | Scoop.it

Feeling sad, mad, critical or otherwise awful? Surprise: negative emotions are essential for mental health.

 

Anger and sadness are an important part of life, and new research shows that experiencing and accepting such emotions are vital to our mental health. Attempting to suppress thoughts can backfire and even diminish our sense of contentment.

 

Instead of backing away from negative emotions, accept them. Acknowledge how you are feeling without rushing to change your emotional state. Many people find it helpful to breathe slowly and deeply while learning to tolerate strong feelings or to imagine the feelings as floating clouds, as a reminder that they will pass. I often tell my clients that a thought is just a thought and a feeling just a feeling, nothing more.

A lot of insight in those so called negative emotions. When they are truly heard, they tend to integrate better, and become harmonious.
Maria Teresa Frezet terapeuta olistica's curator insight, June 7, 2013 12:52 PM

The point is always the same... If we refuse something, this comes back even bigger! Whike if we accept we are made of different parts (emotions), without putting an excessive judgment on it, we will soon experience a real balance and a steady well-being!

Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, August 7, 2013 8:34 PM

We learn so much about ourselves when we are aware and allow our negative emotions with a sense of curiousity. Learning to walk alongside instead of up against our negative emotion is important to our emotional health.
