दिमाग हर दम नया सीख सकता है

Exercising brain may boost your wellbeing 

Mindfulness meditation एक ऐसी दिमागी कसरत है जो न सिर्फ 

दिमागी प्रकार्य (दिमाग के कामकाजी ढंग )में ही बदलाव ला सकती है 

दिमागी संरचना  (anatomy ) में भी  तबदीली  ला सकती है .

 नकारात्मक विचारों को खारिज करने से यह सब हासिल होता है .

माहिरों के  अनुसार ताउम्र ,मृत्यु के ठीक पहले भी दिमाग अपने को 

पुनर -समायोजित करने की ,संरचना और आकृति में बदलाव लाने की 

क्षमता लिए रहता है .अनुभवों के अनुरूप   अनुक्रिया प्रतिक्रिया करता 

रहता है हमारा दिमाग उस विधायक पल तक जिसे मृत्यु कहतें हैं .

         दिमाग की इस शिफत को ,खसूसियत को ही कहते हैं न्यूरो -

प्लास्टीसिटी .

माहिरों के अनुसार शुद्ध मानसिक प्रशिक्षण करते रहने से न सिर्फ 

प्रकार्यात्मक स्तर पर दिमाग में बदलाव दर्ज़ किये जातें हैं संरचनात्मक 

बदलाव भी दर्ज़ होतें हैं .

दिमाग हर दम नया सीख सकता है .नए न्यूरल सर्किट बना सकता है 

.यही कहना है विस्कोंसिन विश्वविद्यालय ,मेडिसन के न्यूरोसाइंसदान 

रिचर्ड डेविडसन का .


Neuroplasticity: You Can Teach An Old Brain New Tricks

What's the Big Idea?
Your brain is more flexible than we've ever thought before. It changes because it is constantly optimizing itself, reorganizing itself by transferring cognitive abilities from one lobe to the other, particularly as you age. After a stroke, for instance, your brain can reorganize itself to move functions to undamaged areas. 
And yet, due to the lifestyles we lead we tend to not make full use of our brains. 

Dr. Dennis Charney, dean of the Mt. Sinai School of

Medicine, has studied how the brain responds to

dramatic changes in peoples' environments. In the video

below, Charney describes how prisoners of war who

were placed in solitary confinement developed unusual

cognitive capacities because the only activity they were

allowed to do was think. The POWs were essentially

 exercising their brains. What can we learn from this?
Charney is using this research to conduct psychological

therapies that can improve learning and memory, and

solve problems with anxiety and depression.

Mindfulness Meditation:

What is Mindfulness Meditation?

Mindfulness is a type of meditation that essentially 

involves focusing on your mind on the present. To 

be mindful is to be aware of your thoughts and 

actions in the present, without judging yourself.
Research suggests that mindfulness meditation may 

improve mood, decrease stress, and boost immune 


How to Try It

1. Find a quiet and comfortable place. Sit in a chair or on the floor 

with your head, neck and back straight but not stiff.
2. Try to put aside all thoughts of the past and the future and stay

 in the present.
3. Become aware of your breathing, focusing on the sensation of 

air moving in and out of your body as you breathe. Feel your belly 

rise and fall, the air enter your nostrils and leave your mouth. Pay 

attention to the way each breath changes and is different.
4. Watch every thought come and go, whether it be a worry, fear, 

anxiety or hope. When thoughts come up in your mind, don't ignore 

or suppress them but simply note them, remain calm and use your 

breathing as an anchor.
5. If you find yourself getting carried away in your thoughts, 

observe where your mind went off to, without judging, and simply 

return to your breathing. Remember not to be hard on yourself if 

this happens.
6. As the time comes to a close, sit for a minute or two, becoming 

aware of where you are. Get up gradually.
