One Half Of Adult Depression Cases Originate In Adolescence Researchers at Bangor and Oxford Universities have discovered that almost 50 percent of adults suffering from clinical depression have had their first encounter with this particular problem in adolescence, noting that lately depression is more commonly found between the ages of 13 and 15. Professor Mark Williams from the Oxford University says that depression cases are increasingly found in teenage patients, unlike several decades ago when depression was mostly observed in middle-aged patients. The appearance of depression in younger patients has turned depression into an important health problem in the past few years. Depression The current study was conducted on 275 patients who were experiencing recurring episodes of depression. Researchers say that depression is known for its recurrence. However, depression can be avoided. Like this: Like Loading...
Så skadas din hjärna av stress | Kommunalarbetaren |Personer med utmattningssyndrom har visat sig få försämrat minne och svårt att koncentrera sig. Skadorna på hjärnan kan läka, tror forskarna. Men det tar tid. – Det kan ta upp till några år, säger stressforskaren Aleksander Perski. När begreppet hjärnstress började dyka upp för drygt tio år sedan fanns ännu inga vetenskapliga belägg för att utbrända personer faktiskt också fått skador på hjärnan. I dag är stressforskarna vid Karolinska Institutet säkra på att allvarlig stress kan skada våra hjärnor. Deras forskning har visat att personer med diagnosen utmattningssyndrom har försämrad funktion i mellanhjärnan. – Personerna med utmattningssyndrom visade sig ha sämre kontakt mellan mellanhjärnan och storhjärnan. När forskarna provocerade patienternas rädsla-system så reagerade de inte som de ska; mellanhjärnan kontaktade inte storhjärnan.– Det innebär att du inte med rationella medel kan förstå att nu måste du stressa ner, förklarar Alexander Perski.
Mindfulness Seed - Home Eckhart Tolle Eckhart Tolle (/ˈɛkɑrt ˈtɒlə/ EK-art TO-lə; German pronunciation: [ˈɛkaʁt ˈtɔlə], born Ulrich Leonard Tolle on February 16, 1948) is a German-born resident of Canada, best known as the author of The Power of Now and A New Earth. In 2011, he was listed by the Watkins Review as the most spiritually influential person in the world. In 2008, a New York Times writer called Tolle "the most popular spiritual author in the United States". Tolle has said that he was depressed for much of his life until he underwent, at age 29, an "inner transformation". He then spent several years wandering and unemployed "in a state of deep bliss" before becoming a spiritual teacher. Later, he moved to North America where he began writing his first book, The Power of Now, which was published in 1997 and reached the New York Times Best Seller lists in 2000. Tolle settled in Vancouver, Canada, where he has lived for more than a decade. Early life and education Inner transformation
Meditation: There May Be No Better Time Than Now. « Spacesuit Yoga For those who have been following the Mumbai Siege and the news on the New York Wal-Mart mob murder, I suspect you are as stunned and horrified by the tragedy and madness of late. These are (sigh)… challenging times. Yet in today’s edition of The New York Times‘ Week in Review, we read the following: ‘No matter how stressful the conditions, some of us are just genetically inclined towards calm…. or else we learn to manage the neuroticism.’ I’m not sure claims of suffering from high level cortical stress count in a case of neuroticism. Sure, in Jewish and Italian jokes this side of the Pacific, the motif of the suffering mother lends itself to Freudian and Hollywood overtones. But we’re in the age of a paradigm shift, where cultural stereotypes give way to real time strategies that manage the sweaty, messy corporeality of stress: Crying, Screaming, acting out — the drama of human emotion makes it damn near impossible for some of us to calm ourselves down.

Mindfulness The following is a script from "Mindfulness" which aired on Dec. 14, 2014. Anderson Cooper is the correspondent. Denise Schrier Cetta, producer. Our lives are filled with distractions -- email, Twitter, texting we're constantly connected to technology, rarely alone with just our thoughts. It's a practice called "mindfulness" and it basically means being aware of your thoughts, physical sensations, and surroundings. Tonight, we'll introduce you to the man who's largely responsible for mindfulness gaining traction. Jon Kabat-Zinn: There are a lot of different ways to talk about mindfulness, but what it really means is awareness. Anderson Cooper: Is it being present? Jon Kabat-Zinn: It is being present. Anderson Cooper: I don't feel I'm very present in each moment. Jon Kabat-Zinn: So ultimately all this preparing is for what? "There are a lot of different ways to talk about mindfulness, but what it really means is awareness." Anderson Cooper: Oh God, this is depressing. [Ryan in Congress Dr.
Mindfulness Centre: Ramana Maharshi Ramana Maharshi /ˈrʌmənə məˈhɑrʃi/ (1879–1950) is widely acknowledged as one of the outstanding Indian gurus of modern times. He was born as Venkataraman Iyer, in Tiruchuli, Tamil Nadu [note 1] Tamil Nadu (South India). His first years were spent in solitude, but his stillness and his appearance as a sanyassin soon attracted devotees. In later years, he responded to questions, but always insisted that silence was the purest teaching. His verbal teachings flowed "from his direct knowledge that consciousness was the only existing reality." In later years, a community grew up around him, where he was available twenty-four hours a day to visitors. Venkataraman was renamed Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi by one of his earliest followers, Ganapati Muni. Biography Early years (1879–1896) Temple of Tiruchuli, Tamil Nadu Family background Childhood (1879–1895) Awakening (1895–1896) After leaving Scott's Middle School, Venkataraman went to the American Mission High School.
How Exercise Fuels the Brain Shannon Stapleton/ReutersDoes exercise keep your brain running? Moving the body demands a lot from the brain. Exercise activates countless neurons, which generate, receive and interpret repeated, rapid-fire messages from the nervous system, coordinating muscle contractions, vision, balance, organ function and all of the complex interactions of bodily systems that allow you to take one step, then another. This increase in brain activity naturally increases the brain’s need for nutrients, but until recently, scientists hadn’t fully understood how neurons fuel themselves during exercise. For many years, scientists had believed that the brain, which is a very hungry organ, subsisted only on glucose, or blood sugar, which it absorbed from the passing bloodstream. That’s where the Japanese researchers came in. The findings of their subsequent follow-up experiment, however, were even more intriguing and consequential. The levels, however, had dropped back to normal within about 24 hours.
