                                                  Meditation bring your emotions under your control , says a new study.

In the study from Michigan State University, the psychology researchers recorded the brain activity of people looking at disturbing pictures immediately after meditating for the first time.

These participants were able to tame their negative emotions just as well as participants who were naturally mindful. “Our findings not only demonstrate that meditation improves emotional health, but that people can acquire these benefits regardless of their ‘natural’ ability to be mindful,” said Yanli Lin, the lead investigator of the study. “It just takes some practice

Mindfulness, a moment-by-moment awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings and sensations, has gained worldwide popularity as a way to promote health and well-being. But what if someone isn’t naturally mindful? Can they become so simply by trying to make mindfulness a “state of mind”? Or perhaps through a more focused, deliberate effort like meditation?

The study, conducted in Jason Moser’s Clinical Psychophysiology Lab, attempted to find out. Researchers assessed 68 participants for mindfulness using a scientifically validated survey. The participants were then randomly assigned to engage in an 18-minute audio guided meditation or listen to a control presentation of how to learn a new language, before viewing negative pictures (such as a bloody corpse) while their brain activity was recorded.

The participants who meditated, they had varying levels of natural mindfulness, showed similar levels of “emotion regulatory” brain activity as people with high levels of natural mindfulness.

In other words their emotional brains recovered quickly after viewing the troubling photos, essentially keeping their negative emotions in check. In addition, some of the participants were instructed to look at the gruesome photos “mindfully” while others received no such instruction. Interestingly, the people who viewed the photos “mindfully” showed no better ability to keep their negative emotions in check.

  1. Saved as a favorite, I really like your blog!

  2. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve
    got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to
    be what precisely I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers
    to write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write related to here.
    Again, awesome weblog!

  4. Thanks for finally talking about >Meditation bring your emotions under your control – Healthy Life <Loved it!
