Post written by: Angel Chernoff Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. You know how you always turn down the volume on the radio when you need to think clearly about something complicated or confusing? The same is true for your life in general. The noise you need to cut out to concentrate? That’s the noise in your head – the busy, worried thoughts screaming over your better judgment. Turning down the radio refocuses your mind and offers you clarity when you need it most.

Now it’s time to apply this same strategy to all the other noise in your life, starting with the noise in your head. Here are 40 quotes gathered from our blog archive that can be used as reminders to help tweak your thoughts and quiet your anxious mind: Reminder: Have you checked out our book? Everything is created twice, first in the mind and then in reality. Your turn… Assumer la maternité de notre être. Learn to Forgive Others No Matter What. A little while ago I wrote a post around the importance of learning how to practice self-forgiveness. In that same vein it is essential to learn how to practice forgiveness no matter what. This may sound extreme, but let me explain. Forgiveness, as you may have heard or experienced, is simply the act of letting go of the burden that you carry from another person who has hurt you out of their own pain, ignorance or confusion.

It’s a practice of freeing up your energy to focus on things that incline toward your own health and well-being or the health and well-being of others. There’s a saying: “Not forgiving is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to get hurt or die.” The reality is holding onto resentment, literally keeps our cortisol running and makes us sick. The wonderful thing about forgiveness is it really only takes one to tango. Of course it’s not often this easy and it’s a practice to forgive, but what else is there to do? Le risque, l’engagement et la percée : la méditation comme apprentissage du courage d’être. Eric Rommeluère.

Le risque, l’engagement et la percée : la méditation comme apprentissage du courage d’être. Site officiel de Thich Nhat Hanh. La minute de méditation - Michel Pascal. 60 Seconds to a Stress-Less Life (and a More Compassionate World) The Now Effect is based on a very simple quote from a psychiatrist and holocaust survivor named Viktor Frankl. He said, “Between stimulus and response there’s a space, in that space lies our power to choose our response, in our response lies our growth and our freedom.” But for most of us that space is non-existent as the speed of the day skips right over it. From the moment we wake up, the brain already has a routine preplanned that skips over the spaces where life is unfolding. It knows that maybe after we wake up, we make breakfast, drink our coffee, read news on our phones, take a shower, get dressed and the rest of the day unfolds like this. Sadly, for many of us our lives go on like this until some crisis wakes us up.

But we don’t need a crisis, right now we can train our brains to break this pattern. Philosopher Abraham Joshua Heschel said: “Life is routine and routine is resistance to wonder.” The fact is, we all need to learn how to: Here it is for you to try out right now: S’asseoir pour méditer. The Great Zen Buddhist Teacher Thich Nhat Hanh on How to Do “Hugging Meditation” By Maria Popova “When we hug, our hearts connect and we know that we are not separate beings.” “I embrace you with all my heart,” Albert Camus wrote in his beautiful letter of gratitude to his childhood teacher shortly after winning the Nobel Prize.

To embrace one another with our whole hearts is perhaps the greatest act of recognition and appreciation there is. To do so in more than words is the ultimate gift of our shared humanity. How to perform this highest act of generosity is what legendary Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh (b. “Spirituality doesn’t mean a blind belief in a spiritual teaching,” Nhat Hanh writes. In the late 1960s, Nhat Hanh invented — in the most organic and inadvertent way — a simple practice that brings embodied form to the communion and mutual understanding at the heart of this spiritual intimacy. In 1966, a friend took me to the Atlanta Airport. According to the practice, you have to really hug the person you are holding.

A Gift from Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay) to All of Us. Last week I wrote about Thich Nhat Hanh’s brain hemorrhage landing him in the hospital. The most recent update from Plum Village shows that while his condition is still in a critical stage he has opened his eyes and even reached out to touch the attendant next to him. In continuing this time of honoring his life I wanted to share with you one of the gifts he has given me that I often share with others.

These are the short phrases he weaves into breathing or walking that helps us be more present, loving, grounded, and aware in daily life. If you don’t already, consider trying these out as an experiment in your daily life and seeing what you notice. For example, You may take three steps while breathing in and say “Breathing in, I calm my body” and then with the following three steps “Breathing out, I relax.” You can then shorten this to saying “calm” as you breathe in, and “relax” as you breathe out. These are just some examples; you can make up your own that fit for you. . , The Now Effect. Thich Nhat Hanh. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

With studies pouring in on the benefits of mindfulness, psychologists’ attention is turning to why mindfulness works, and the results are fascinating. For example, mindfulness meditation has been shown to have therapeutic benefits in depression, anxiety, substance abuse, chronic pain and eating disorders.

Its benefits extend out to physical features like lower blood pressure and lower cortisol levels. How is it that this type of practice can have these beneficial effects on such a broad range of conditions? A recent study by Hölzel et al. (2011) finds four central components to how mindfulness works: 1. Body awareness Awareness of your own body has long been taught as one of the foundations of mindfulness meditation. The Buddha says the mindful monk finds through… Being mindful may also help with empathising with others because knowledge of the self provides insight into others. 2. 3. 4.

Overcome the Five Obstacles to Your Mindfulness Meditation Practice. Many media outlets have been talking for a number of years now about how ubiquitous mindfulness is, the impact it’s having in a variety of sectors and all the wonderful science that continues to be published. But I noticed that many people in the media don’t talk much about the actual formal practice of mindfulness meditation and that’s probably because it can be a hard habit to establish. One thing I’ve learned is if you want to establish a practice you have to look directly at what’s getting in the way and allow those obstacles to be your greatest teachers.

Here are five obstacles that have been in people’s way for thousands of years and the antidotes to get over them. Doubt – The uncertainty about whether something will “work” or not often plagues many people in the beginning of their practice. The thoughts is, “this can work for others, but it won’t work for me.” Sometimes doubt is healthy, teaching us to look closely at things before we buy them. Warmly, Elisha Goldstein, PhD. Mindfulness Meditation: 8 Quick Exercises That Easily Fit into Your Day. You can fit these mindfulness exercises into your life while walking, brushing your teeth and just listening. Although mindfulness meditation is all the rage nowadays, most people have little time for formal practice. That’s a pity since studies have found mindfulness meditation has many benefits, including reducing depression and pain, accelerating cognition, increasing creativity, debiasing the mind and much more.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to add a little mindfulness meditation to your day without formal practice, then these mindfulness exercises are for you. They mindfulness exercises can mostly be slotted in while you go about your everyday business, without the need for a formal sit-down meditation session. 1. The walking meditation If you do any period of undisturbed walking during the day — at least ten or fifteen minutes — then you can do a little walking mindfulness meditation. As when cultivating all forms of mindfulness, it’s about focusing the attention. 2. 3. 4. Can Meditation be Dangerous? This is a story of Zen master, professor, poet, and essayist, Louis Nordstrom. Over 35 years ago Louis renounced his tenure as a professor in philosophy and robed up to begin his life as a monk.

In an NY Times interview with Chip Brown, Nordstrom conveyed some insights into the connection between his trauma and abandonment as a child that revealed a hidden motive in his work with meditation. He said: “The Zen experience of forgetting the self was very natural to me,” he told me last fall. For Nordstrom, meditation felt like a natural fit as there was a familiarity and calmness that came from detaching from thoughts, feelings, and emotions. In therapy he came to understand a subtle, yet subversive motive he had to engage in meditation. This is a very subtle nuance of meditation. In returning to therapy he recognized something vital to his healing: So many of us, deep down, just want to be seen and acknowledged.

Do you know the myths about mindfulness and what is true or false about this swelling revolution?

Take a look at what I think are the top five myths about mindfulness. Note: There are plenty more, but I thought these top the charts. Myth #1: Mindfulness if for taking a time-out from life, quieting the mind and reducing stress. Truth: I think this is the #1 myth out there because it’s my experience that this is how people initially experience the practice. However, the initial practices can often give people sense of relief from a busy mind and can then be equated with a mental break. The paradox here is when we’re able to do just be present to our minds, emotions and bodies, the stressful relationship tends to quiet down, but when we try and quiet the mind down, we often add fuel to the fire.

Myth #2: You need to carve out plenty of time in a serene “mindful” space. Truth: Mindfulness can be practiced in many ways. In other words, make it your way and just get started. , The Now Effect. Anxiété. The 8 Most Unexpected Advantages of Anxiety. Anxiety can be crippling, but psychology studies find it does have some unexpected upsides. Anxiety can be crippling, but sometimes it is a crucial part of getting the best out of yourself. Artists, comedians, athletes and other performers often talk about the right amount of anxiety and how it can improve creativity and performance. But anxiety also has a number of lesser known upsides… 1. People will trust you more People who are feeling anxious can easily get embarrassed, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing because research shows people are more trusting.

Dr. “Moderate levels of embarrassment are signs of virtue.Our data suggests embarrassment is a good thing, not something you should fight.Embarrassment is one emotional signature of a person to whom you can entrust valuable resources.It’s part of the social glue that fosters trust and cooperation in everyday life.” 2. Anxious people often say they are less likely to be injured because they are thinking ahead, but is that really true? Anxiété de performance: une stratégie plus efficace que de tenter de se calmer. L'anxiété de performance, devant une tâche telle que de parler en public par exemple, est incroyablement envahissante et essayer de se calmer est très difficile et inefficace, souligne Alison Wood Brooks de l'Université Harvard, coauteure d'une étude publiée dans le Journal of Experimental Psychology qui montre que de viser à transformer l'anxiété en excitation est plus efficace.

"Quand les gens se sentent anxieux et essaient de se calmer, ils pensent à toutes les choses qui pourraient aller mal", dit-elle. "Quand ils sont excités, ils pensent à comment les choses pourraient bien se passer". Avec ses collègues, elle a mené plusieurs expériences qui ont montré que de simples déclarations favorisant l'excitation pouvaient améliorer les performances lors d'activités qui déclenchent de l'anxiété.

Dans une de ces expérience, 140 participants devaient préparer un discours public expliquant ​pourquoi ils seraient de bons partenaires de travail. Voyez également: Anxiety: Getting Excited Beats Trying to Calm Down. People giving public speeches and taking a stressful maths test did better when they re-thought their performance anxiety. A study on anxiety-inducing activities like public speaking finds that the intuitive response–consciously trying to calm down–isn’t the best strategy. Instead, people instructed to say to themselves, “I am excited” before a stressful ordeal, performed better. The counter-intuitive finding comes from a series of experiments conducted by Alison Wood Brooks, to be published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology (Brooks, 2013). Forget calming down Everyone knows that anxiety can hurt performance.

Sure enough studies have found that people who are anxious are distracted, can’t think straight and find their working memories impaired. Surely it makes sense, then, to try and calm down? In one experiment 140 participants were told to prepare a public speech. ‘Excited’ people were more persuasive, competent, confident and persistent. Excitement leads to success.
