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.
Amphetamines Stimulants Double the Psychosis Risk for Young People Suffering from ADHD
It has been found in a study that young adults who suffer from attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, ADHD may develop a high risk of psychosis if they rely on amphetamines stimulants such as Adderall to treat the disorder. Those who receive other types of stimulants such as Ritalin are less prone to psychosis risk.
After analyzing the insurance claim databases (between 2004 to 2015) of over 2 Lakhs young adults ranging from 13 to 25 with ADHD, it was observed that one out of every 660 young people suffered from psychosis even after the first few months of starting a stimulant. And the risk factor for the side effect of Amphetamines stimulants was double than that of taking methylphenidate.
Dr. Lauren Moran, the assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, carried out the observations on young people with ADHD taking amphetamines such as Adderall. People who face the problem of ADHD experience problems such as inattention, hyperactivity, and severe impulsivity. Many people who are aware of the side-effects of stimulants go for other alternatives to reduce ADHD problem. In order to help them find ways on how to focus on daily routine, people also go for natural alternatives to Adderall to treat symptoms of ADHD.
The U.S Food and Drug Administration issued the guidelines to manufacturers to mention the warning of using stimulants on drug labels. But still, there is an increase in the number of young people taking stimulants such as amphetamine as the treatment for ADHD. Dr. Moran said that the effect is less severe for first timers if they go for stimulants after taking a prescription from their doctors.
