Echt Gesund- Meditation and Stress Management

Echt Gesund- Meditation and Stress Management

Almost everyone talks about stress, and one thing is becoming clearer: It is the trigger for the most common diseases of the "civilized Western man". But what is stress actually, how does it arise and what can you do against it? We will talk about this in this part of the seminar and meditate afterwards. Here's more about the effects of meditation:

1. Meditation speeds up the brain's capacity to process information

According to a February 2012 article in the "Frontiers in Human Neuroscience", meditation can alter the geometry of the brain's surface. At the University of California, Los Angeles, a study of 50 meditators and 50 controls was conducted to find out whether there is a link between meditation and brain folds, their pattern, and the extent of cortical convolution that the brain can process faster. This study showed a positive interaction between the amount of brain folds and the number of meditation years, especially in the comparison of long-term meditators to non-meditators. These elevated brain folds illustrate an integration of cognitive processes during meditation. Using certain parts of the brain, the meditating becomes reflective and thoughtful. Despite the study, more research is needed to find out more detail about the connections during a meditation.

2. Meditation untangles our neural pathways

Rebecca Gladding, M., explains in an article published in Psychology Today in May 2013 how the brain works better with meditation and the positive effects it has on the brain the longer you meditate. Basically Gladding explains how the brain can be shaped by meditation. Specifically, the connection to our anxiety center and our "I" center (place where the brain constantly reflects on you) dwindles through regular meditation. This relaxation reduces our feelings of anxiety because of the connection of our nerve pathways between the anxiety and the ego center. The non-helpful feelings of anxiety are diminished by ignoring, which improves the formation of new nerve pathways and thus also the comprehensive assessment and the ability to empathize responsibly. Gladding points out that one should regularly meditate to maintain the benefits of meditation in order to prevent the brain from falling back into its old patterns of thought.

3. Meditation reduces the risk of heart disease

In November 2012, a study was published in the journal "Heart-Circulation: Quality and Results", in which 201 people with coronary heart disease were given two possibilities: 1.) Participate in a seminar on healthy eating and exercise or 2.) Participate in a seminar on transcendental meditation. The researchers examined the participants for five years and discovered something interesting. Those who chose the second option (meditation seminar) had reduced their overall risk of heart attacks, strokes and death by 48%. This was the first study of its kind, and further research is needed, but it is promising.

4. Meditation can improve your memory

New research on meditation also shows that meditation can improve memory recapturing skills. Catherine Kerr is a researcher at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging and the Osher Research Center. She has found that those who practice meditation can better adjust their brainwaves. They could hide distractions and increase productivity faster than those who do not meditate. Less distractions allow the brain to integrate new information and thus support the memory recall. In her article, "Impacts of Meditation on Emotions" published in psychedelic.com in June 2013, Kerr explains that meditation improves numerous mental abilities, including rapid memory retrieval. Her discovery that meditation brainwaves help hide distractions, and improves ability to remember quickly and take new facts."
