Regram @projecthappiness_org ☜ 20 minutes of meditation has been proven to lower stress hormones of upwards of 800%. Stress is arguably the number one cause of disease in our world as it encumbers our immunological system across the board, making other illnesses achieve a foothold and spread from there. Lowering said stress hormone levels is therefore our primary focus as a novice meditator. There is really no point doing mantras, mudras or chanting before this has been self-mastered, this feeling of abundant stillness, this centering. Yes, a mantra can still alleviate the conscious foci to remain centered. And yes, a mudra is an expression of meditative intent that when used properly can greatly alter the experiences during the meditative state. But before we are solemly calm, these things are mere "unknowables", the mind cannot know these assistants, for they are not "knowledge" to be applied, they are vehicles of consciousness more so, and you wouldn't strap a toddler into a spaceship before he learnt some spatial awareness, would you? So just sit. Breathe. 🙏 Focus on the sensation of drawing breath. ⚜ The sensation your body has to go through in order to do so. ☥ This will bring you to the center, from which point you will be able to understandably apply whichever vehicle or auditory imbiber. ✡ 1ove 💓 awakespiritual meditation still water upon the infinite ocean create the wave awake spiritual ascension enlightenment: IF YOU LISTEN TO YOUR BODY WHEN IT WHISPERS, YOU WIONT HAVE TO HEAR IT SCREAM PROJECT APPINES Regram @projecthappiness_org ☜ 20 minutes of meditation has been proven to lower stress hormones of upwards of 800%.

neurosciencestuff: Bilingualism may save brain resources as you ageNew research findings show that bilingual people are great at saving brain power, that is. To do a task, the brain recruits different networks, or the highways on which different types of information flow, depending on the task to be done. The team of Ana Inés Ansaldo, PhD, a researcher at the Centre de recherche de l’Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal and a professor at Université de Montréal, compared what are known as functional brain connections between seniors who are monolingual and seniors who are bilingual. Her team established that years of bilingualism change how the brain carries out tasks that require concentrating on one piece of information without becoming distracted by other information. This makes the brain more efficient and economical with its resources.   To arrive at this finding, Dr. Ansaldo’s team asked two groups of seniors (one of monolinguals and one of bilinguals) to perform a task that involved focusing on visual information while ignoring spatial information. The researchers compared the networks between different brain areas as people did the task. They found that monolinguals recruited a larger circuit with multiple connections, whereas bilinguals recruited a smaller circuit that was more appropriate for the required information. These findings were published in the Journal of Neurolinguistics.Two different ways of doing the same taskThe participants did a task that required them to focus on visual information (the colour of an object) while ignoring spatial information (the position of the object). The research team observed that the monolingual brain allocates a number of regions linked to visual and motor function and interference control, which are located in the frontal lobes. This means that the monolingual brain needs to recruit multiple brain regions to do the task. “After years of daily practice managing interference between two languages, bilinguals become experts at selecting relevant information and ignoring information that can distract from a task. In this case, bilinguals showed higher connectivity between visual processing areas located at the back of the brain. This area is specialized in detecting the visual characteristics of objects and therefore is specialized in the task used in this study. These data indicate that the bilingual brain is more efficient and economical, as it recruits fewer regions and only specialized regions,” explained Dr. Ansaldo.Bilinguals have a double advantage as they ageBilinguals therefore have two cognitive benefits. First, having more centralized and specialized functional connections saves resources compared to the multiple and more diverse brain areas allocated by monolinguals to accomplish the same task. Second, bilinguals achieve the same result by not using the brain’s frontal regions, which are vulnerable to aging. This may explain why the brains of bilinguals are better equipped at staving off the signs of cognitive aging or dementia. “We have observed that bilingualism has a concrete impact on brain function and that this may have a positive impact on cognitive aging. We now need to study how this function translates to daily life, for example, when concentrating on one source of information instead of another, which is something we have to do every day. And we have yet to discover all the benefits of bilingualism,” concluded Dr. Ansaldo. So basically Im better than you uni-lingual Americans hahahaha: neurosciencestuff: Bilingualism may save brain resources as you ageNew research findings show that bilingual people are great at saving brain power, that is.

psych2go: We’re very pleased to announce the titles of the articles for issue 7 of our quarterly magazine! As previously announced, the topic will be Bisexuality as part of our gender and sexuality series. Bisexuality is the most common identity in the LGBT community - with 5% of men, and 3 % of women identifying as bisexual (Kinsey Institute, 2007). Despite this however, bisexual’s still experience a lot of stigma and misunderstanding, and this comes from both within the LGBT community and outside of it (Roberts, Home Hoyt, 2015). People who are bisexual experience the highest rates of violence, suicide, poverty and discrimination. 60% of bisexuals have experienced biphobia in the work place, and they are 6 times more likely to be closeted than homosexuals (Understanding Issues Facing American Bisexuals). There are many myths about bisexuality and people who are bisexual that feed into these high rates of violence and discrimination. Some of the most prevalent being that bisexuals are just greedy, confused or attention-seeking, the idea that polyamory and bisexuality are the same thing, the idea that they are immune to discrimination due to being “straight-passing”, the idea that bi-erasure is no big deal, and the idea that bisexuality is a phase.We believe that by raising awareness about bisexuality, issues that bisexuals face, and also how these myths are incorrect we can help tackle the core of what some bisexuals face. This is why we’ve decided on bisexuality for our awareness topic for this issue. We address some of these myths in our magazine - for example in the “Myths” section we explore the myth that bisexuality and polyamory are the same thing. In the LGBT section we explore the very real effects of bi-erasure. And in our Community Submission section we explore the effects stigma (such as biphobia) has on a person. As well as this we also have many other great topics from psychology, including How To Stay Mentally Well Over Summer, and Piaget’s Theory of Child Development.If you would like to pre-order this magazine, and help support us in our mission to raise awareness for the topics that really matter to yourselves and us, check out our Patreon hereTogether we can make the world a better place.: Issue 7- Bisexualit Music: Music in Commercials Personality: Jung & Bisexuality Psych in news Exploring Mental Health: Staying Mentally Well Over Summer Animal: Spatial Cognition in Animals Significant Person: Camille Claudel Opinion Piece: A Cross-Cultural View of Bisexuality LGBT: Bi-Erasure and Its Effects Child: Piaget Psych Myths: Bisexual Doesn't Equal Polyamorous Media Review: Beauty and the Beast Forensic: Competency to Stand Trial vs Criminal Responsibility Psych2Go: Dreams Neuropsychology: Vision Science Career Tips: Tips For Your First Internship Social: Why Those Born Bisexual Have The Most Open Mind When It Comes To Falling In Love Special Needs: 5 Portrayals of Developmental Disorders in Media Creative Writing #1 & #2 Community Submission: The Effect of Stigma on a psych2go: We’re very pleased to announce the titles of the articles for issue 7 of our quarterly magazine!
