Meditators can Alter Others Negative Emotions

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.

There are many herbs across the world that have gained much popularity in the last 10 years. One such herb is none other than kratom, which has managed to gather a massive fan base of over 100 million people across the globe. Discovered in the early 19th century, kratom was famous for its recreational purposes. With much evolution in scientific research and technology, a lot of people have started to use it as a medicine.

However, the only problem with this herb is, it has no support for any medical evidence that suggests its use as a medicine. Still, this herb has managed to penetrate the global herb market with a staggering net worth of over $400 million. However, experts claim that this figure is underrated because this plant is hugely famous in the black market.

So What is kratom?

In simple words, kratom is a popular tree that is native to South-east Asia. Some people believe it is over 10,000 years old and was one of the first few crops cultivated by mankind. Kratom has strong roots in China, Indonesia, Thailand, and many other Asian countries. Its leaves have a special compound known as mitragyna Speciosa, which is said to have similar properties of opioid painkillers. This is the main reason why natives consume this plant in raw form and infuse it in different food items.

Are There Any Benefits of This Plant?

In simple words, there are no proven health benefits of this plant at all. Whatever you go through online articles are nothing but claims made by people who use this plant frequently. People who are fanatic consumers of kratom claim, it helps in treating insomnia, can cure depression, is helpful for  putting down panic attacks, improves skin tone, increases motivation at work, provides relief from chronic body pains and can even treat chemotherapy side effects. None of these claims are backed by any scientific evidence, so everyone is waiting for what the future unfolds for them.

One proven health benefit of kratom is, it helps in losing weight. So if you are willing to lose some extra pounds, get good quality kratom seeds at this online store.

What Are The Side Effects of this Plant?

Unfortunately, kratom has several proven side effects, which are experienced by fanatic consumers after a few days of consuming this plant. Some of them are:

  • Hallucinations
  • Insomnia
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Constipation
  • Itching on The body
  • Sore Throat
  • Dehydration
  • Dry Cough
  • Chest Pains
  • Chronic Bowel Movements

These reasons are enough to compel anyone to stay away from this herb. Because kratom is cheap, many people use it as an alternative to traditional medicine. This herb is so popular in South Florida that if you visit any regular bar, they will offer you a cup of kratom tea for as low as $7. This is a strong proof of the fact that this plant has become mainstream now. Although most countries stand together by observing a complete ban on this compound, it is very popular in the black markets.
