A new study regarding Meditation has been published in the European Journal of Social Psychology. According to the research, the people who meditate daily can reduce negative emotion not only in themselves, but can also decrease negative emotion up to a limit into their life partners as well. The individual benefits of Meditation may impact others. But the question is how to detect whether the non-meditating partners are taking benefits or not.
Christopher May, Assistant professor in University College Groningen, said, “Most researches on Meditation has focused on its benefits for the individuals doing the practice. This research, particularly over the last 20 years, has shown that Meditation has numerous benefits for the practitioner, such as increasing mindfulness and positive emotions, and decreasing negative emotions.”
To carry out the research, May and his colleagues selected 53 university students who did not meditate ever in life. 18 of them did not interact with their room partners or study partners. Hence they were excluded. Now, May was left with only 35 students, and he asked them to do Meditation daily. Various blogs like claytonmicallef.com, that talked and preached about meditation, came into assistance during that time.
The remaining students were surveyed daily for eight weeks, and May found positive emotion and mindfulness not only into the participants but their room partners and study partners also showed fewer negative emotion in eight weeks. But the reduction in negative sentiment in the meditators was in higher amount as compared to their partners.
In the end, May said that a new study would take place over a more significant number of people to increase our confidence in the research. We want to know why non-meditating partners have only a few changes in negative emotion as compared to the meditating participants.
New Headphones have Released in Market to Help you Stay Focused
Mindset, a new pair of headphones in market, plays tunes while preventing outside distractions and training the brain to concentrate. After putting the headphones, the electroencephalogram (EEG) sensors embedded in the top of the headphones start to monitor brainwaves in real time. This measurements can tell when the mind is wandering and when it is focused. It plays a tone as soon as it realises the mind is slipping from the given task.
According to Jacob Flood, who is a co-founder of Mindset, with time the brain learns to recognize distractions on its own and tunes itself. That means the headphones won’t be required to do so. What Mindset focuses on is to improve concentration and ability to get into deep flow state needed to absorb complex materials. Mindset is also designed to detect dips in attention due to fatigue and provide suggestion on how long it will take the brain to recover from it.
Concentration ability has become a general issue on college campuses. In a study conducted on more than 10,000 college students, results showed that more than half of them were on prescribed Adderall or other ADHD drug. Flood claims that Mindset can help curb this prescribed drug abuse.
Mindset is not yet a medically-certified device. A Federal Drug Association (FDA) approval takes years. Flood said that seeking FDA approval isn’t their priority. For now they are focussed on Mindset reaching as many consumers as possible, teaching them how to train your brain and improve concentration.
The results of using Mindset headphones are mixed. Some studies pointed out that it is expensive, time-consuming and its benefits are not long-lasting. But Flood sees Mindset headphones being something students will keep in backpack or a worker may have on their desk to control subconscious, to use it as a tool to further education & to improve work life.
