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.

Podcast I would like to recommend - "Infinite Monkey Cage". While it covers a very wide range of topics, today I enjoyed "Science of Dreaming", and there is more on human mind and psychology related subjects. It is difficult to discuss such a subjective field with so much reliance on memory and personal interpretation, but these guys do it brilliantly. Podcast hosts - Brian Cox and Robin Ince with a panel of cool guests for each episode. Episode on dreaming: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0008wtj My name is Monika, I am psychologist.

More/again about the robots and psychology. As we know, robots need to be made to have some human like features to make their job easier. It actually is a real problem - if humans are awkward about the robots, then robots cannot help people as well as they could, or people do not trust robots with the tasks at all. So, this is an area of research now. If robot is assessed to be high on agreeableness, emotional stability and conscientiousness (!), then people are more likely to have a positive outlook towards it. The longer people interact with the robot, the more they are likely to like it - even if they were regarded as weird looking in the beginning. My name is Monika, I am psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, counsel and teach.

I decided to write a bit more about the personality traits - I keep writing about the NEO PI-R inventory and the research using it. So my plan is to write about all thirty facets and five big traits that this inventory reports. Second trait - Openness. This is a trait composed of six facets: fantasy (active imagination), aesthetics (sensitivity to art forms), feelings (attentiveness to inner feelings), actions (adventurousness, preference for variety), ideas (intellectual curiosity) and values (psychological liberalism). Most people fall in the middle between high and low scores. Low score predicts a person who is more traditional in thinking, behavior and appearance. People who score high tend to be more involved in creativity and learning, they will always prefer a new taste and untried road. Society as usual requires balance - accumulated knowledge and experience from traditionalists and continuous learning and inventions from the radical liberals. And most of the others who usually adapt their behaviors to the situation and may use both sides of the continuum. My name is Monika, I am psychologist. I help to deal with daily and difficult questions about behavior, thinking, emotions. I write, counsel and teach. Photo: Peter H from Pixabay #spoonfulofreason #psychology #neopir #openness
