Article. Mindfulness meditation is a research-proven way to reduce stress - conclusions of the articles are based on more than 200 different research papers. - mindfulness meditation is a way to train your attention to achieve a mental state of calm concentration and positive emotions. - two main parts of the meditation is attention (here and now, focus on breathing, physical sensations) and acceptance (watching without judging, like - I notice that I am feeling stressed and tired). - mindfulness meditation helps when dealing with depression, pain, smoking, other addictions, fatigue, helps to strengthen immunity and recover faster after flu or cold. - meditation activates areas of the brain responsible for attention and emotion regulation; this helps to react to different situations with less negative thoughts or unhelpful emotional reactions in stressful situations. - you can find many helpful tools, recording and apps to help you launch onto the path of learning mindfulness meditation. I suggest looking at "Calm", "Headspace" or Lithuanian "Ramu". - you can also book a councelling session with me :) Article: https://www.apa.org/topics/mindfulness-meditation Photo: S. Hermann & F.

Mindfulness and meditation is a great way to enrich our inner world and to get value to our resting time. I find meditation a great way to give more importance to my inner world and to give richness to my resting moments, moreover I find it useful to increase my understanding and concentration while listening. It is nice in order to accept the pain and the low moments in lives as deaths or deprivations of common habits. I will absolutely search for this apps, I am currently using JoyScore and Petit BamBou and during my five days challenge I learned how to mix up meditation with my daily routine. I then listen to the first meditation of AngstAndHue while falling asleep in the evening.

Today I would like to recommend a book - Jon Kabat-Zinn "Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness meditation for everyday life". Meditation is one of the most valuable skills that you can learn to improve and maintain your health in a good condition. This means your mental health as well as your physical health, which is definitely very much related to and dependant on your psychological balance. The author is Western so the book does not contain multiple words that are not relatable to our daily life and language. I also would like to dissipate another often used and incorrect idea - meditation is not a practice of silencing your thoughts. Meditation is practice of concentrating your focus on your passing thoughts, on may object or action. You may meditate while cleaning your home, walking, or sitting down. You don't need to have a mat, sit in lotus pose or burn incense - you may choose to use it all ar one of it, if it helps you to focus. Take a breath. Lightly exhale. My name is Monika, I am health and nutrition psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, teach and provide psychological counselling.

What does brain do when we watch a movie? Results of the magnetic resonance reveal that we get more involved (that is more coordinated brain activity is dedicated) in more emotional scenes. This higher involvement state is rather similar among different people - we kind of get synchronized. When involvement is lower, then mind "wanders" in an individual manner, and the state is quite distinct for each person. When following the movie review people were asked to recall the movie, it was possible to predict what the story will feature - they were the same higher involvement and more intense emotion scenes. I only wonder what my brain does when I watch Fawlty Towers for several hundredth time... My name is Monika, I am health and nutrition psychologist.

Today I would like to suggest a great find on the children bookshelves - Aurelie Chen Chow Chine books with little unicorn Gaston. The original French versions contain multiple books, activity journals and the plush unicorn itself, hopefully other languages will catch up soons with all the great materials. Just think about it, to learn, recognize, understand and correctly name all the emotions is a difficult task, not necessarily easy to deal with for an adult - and when you are just a tiny corn, in the constantly overwhelming world, and sometimes you realize that you are doing something wrong and making the adults unhappy - then it becomes a really difficult task. I am sure that the books will be very useful to both children and their parents. My name is Monika, I am health and nutrition psychologist.
