Dacă Facebookul ar primi o interpretare vizuală zilele astea, ar fi un video cu scântei. Ele țâșnesc cam sub orice postare unde sunt mai mult de două comentarii aparținând unor autori diferiți. (Deși messengerul are și opțiunea de a te certa singur cu tine însuți, dacă epuizezi celelalte opțiuni). Dar nu are rost să descriem tensiunile acumulate în comunitățile umane și nu pentru că nu ne-ar plăcea. Din contră, e o plăcere și în asta, după cum o demonstrează feedurile noastre virtuale. Dar cercetătorii au demonstrat că este dăunător minții să te tânguiești continuu. Sau, cum ar spune un înțelept al cărui nume l-am uitat, e ca și cum ai umbla cu cartofi împuțiți în buzunare.
În loc să îi mirosim, venim cu soluții de a-i da la o parte, pentru a nu ajunge să folosim opțiunea aceea a chat-ului de Facebook de care vorbeam mai sus. Meditație sau sumo. Depinde de nuanțele naturii umane pe care o dețineți. Tot în funcție de ele, mai avem și livestreaming cu oameni care mănâncă. În vreo curbură a universului, există cu siguranță un filosof care ar fi spus: dacă nu poți ține piept lumii, mănânc-o.
Mindfulness research probes depression benefits
Harvard University. Gaelle Desbordes, a researcher at Massachusetts General Hospital and instructor in radiology at Harvard Medical School, is probing mindfulness meditation’s effect on depression, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to take before and after images of the brains of depressed patients who’ve learned to meditate. The work seeks to understand the internal brain processes affected by mindfulness meditation training in this population.
Dr. Ron Siegel: "The Science of Mindfulness" | Talks at Google
The Science of Mindfulness: Working with Anxiety, Depression, and Other Everyday Problems Mindfulness-based psychotherapy is the most popular new treatment approach in the last decade—and for good reason. Studies demonstrate that mindfulness practices can be effective tools to help resolve anxiety, depression, addictive habits, stress-related medical disorders, and even interpersonal conflict. Mindfulness is not, however, a one-size-fits-all remedy. We need to tailor practices to particular problems. This talk will outline how mindfulness practices work to alleviate psychological distress and how anyone can creatively adapt them to work with the difficulty of the moment.
The Science of Mindfulness
Professor Mark Williams examines the neuroscience of mindfulness in the second of four short videos. We live in a world filled with material wealth, live longer and healthier lives, and yet anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and depression have never been more common. What are the driving forces behind these interlinked global epidemics? In this series, Professor Mark Williams (Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow at Oxford University) and Dr Danny Penman discuss the recent scientific advances that have radically altered our understanding of depression and related disorders. Also discussed is the latest treatments and therapies that are offering hope to those suffering from depression. Professor Williams co-developed Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), a treatment for anxiety, stress and depression that is at least as effective as drugs at preventing new episodes of depression. It's now one of the preferred treatments for depression recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. The same technique, based upon an ancient form of meditation, can also help us cope more effectively with the relentless demands of our increasingly frantic world. Professor Williams and Dr Penman co-authored the bestselling book Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World.
