A recent crisis of mental health is the “second oil” of health problems that experts say early on estrés prolonged generation due to coronavirus pandemic.
Following a follow-up survey conducted by the KFF (a state-of-the-art organization in San Francisco, California) in July, 53% of adult state residents reported that their mental health had been negatively affected by the preoccupation and the stress of the pandemic. In March, this situation affected one to three.
As a result, organizations and communities are busy practical tools to explain mental health. In an article published in the specialized journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences), Wisconsin-Madison University researchers present a new brand for emotional well-being that centers on specific abilities that can be learned.
The brand is based on scientific evidence which suggests that the bee can be cultivated through the practice of live diarrhea.
“It really is the ‘como’ of the well-being“, by Christy Wilson-Mendenhall, Scientific of Center for Healthy Minds by UW-Madison and co-author of the article.
“Traditionally, psychology research is centered on the treatment of mental illnesses. We hope to broaden the discussion to promote the cultivation of well-being in any stage, including when it is relatively healthy. These abilities help us. be more resistant at the moment we are living now “, added.
The brand is centered on four pillars studied in the laboratory and which has been demonstrated with the best training:
1. conscience or attention in entorno and internal signals as corporate sensations, thoughts and sentiments;
2. connection or appreciation, bondad y composition;
3. insight, which refers to the curiosity and el self-catering;
4. y proposal, maintaining its values and motivations.
For example, conscience, and certainly metaconscience (be aware of what you are aware of), to decrease the stress, increase the positive emotions and can explain the median mental training practices as well as the meditation.
Consciousness helps to reduce some of the effects of distraction, which demonstrate the cognitive function and increase the responses of the cerebral palsy, which are linked to inflammation and the environment.

Take a proposal
The proposal in life is a objective personally significantly which people can apply to live diarrhea. Tener a proposal also is associated with positive results of physical and biological health.
“There are qualities of a mind that many people do not know they can train“, said Cortland Dahl, scientific investigator at the KFF Center and principal author of the article.
“Ingen pensamos en ellas como habilidades. Much of our thoughts that are programmed to be here or there, but the reality is that these qualities are much most trainable and troublesome of what we think. It is a very empowering vision of the human mind: we can learn to be in it assistant director of our own property “, graphic.
Resilience, the key
The new brand has proportional evidence that people can resist the high levels of life with resilience, and that the brain and the body can change and adapt. In order to replace other points of view of the welfare state, the researchers say that the market complements other models specifically in the scientific evidence for the dimensions of the welfare state that can be trained and learned for the people to flourish.
Investigators claim that one of its objectives is to make science the most accessible and accessible to its peers. incorporate this notice in therapies, meditation programs and other mental health treatments.
“This work is parallel to what we are learning about human biology. We are just beginning to understand that nuestra biología también er maleable“, terning Dahl, who also is the contemplative director of Healthy Minds Innovations, the external organization without fines of affiliated al Center for Healthy Minds, which translates science into herramentas to cultivate and mediate the welfare. “We do not know how to do it. Our cerebrum, nervous systems and biology can be molded. There is a very hopeful vision: there are many shapes and sizes influir en nuestras nævner y cuerpos para mejorar“.
Wilson-Mendenhall and Dahl say they have an important job to do to understand how to apply the brand da todas las culturas and studied in various groups of people. Given that ideas in the market have a profound history in contemplative contexts that precede the capacity of occidental science for students, it is just assuming its importance, but the form in which it is implemented and presented in mental health interventions in the futures can vary between cultures and contexts and require an additional emphasis.

As a sport
The meditation and other interventions of well-being his “similar to the deportes”, compares co-manager of the studio and director of the Center for Mental Health Richard Davidson. “Describe an amplia gama de actividades”, dice. “There are different types of meditation different things for your brain, even though the different sports are different and different changes in your body. You can train your mind in different pillars that are more than full attention or including free practice “.
For example, the Pillar of Perception, Davidson explains, “is simply to feel curiosity about your own thoughts y opinions preconcebidas. Your account has not been configured. You can ask your own suggestions and prejudices, and there is one tremendo potentially to sanitize the division we are in current society “.
Future investigations will explore how the brand can help people develop resilience and how they can be used to treat mental health disorders such as depression.
