Research Findings: The Effects of Meditation on Self-esteem and Adaptability to School Environment

What is Self-esteem, Self-confidence?

Self-esteem is an individual’s subjective evaluation of their own worth. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself (for example, « I am unloved », « I am worthy ») as well as emotional states, such as triumph, despair, pride, and shame. Smith and Mackie (2007) defined it by saying « The self-concept is what we think about the self; self-esteem, is the positive or negative evaluations of the self, as in how we feel about it.

The concept of self-confidence is commonly used as self-assurance in one’s personal judgment, ability, power, etc. One’s self confidence increases from experiences of having satisfactorily completed particular activities. It is a positive belief that in the future one can generally accomplish what one wishes to do.

Self-confidence is not the same as self-esteem, which is an evaluation of one’s own worth, whereas self-confidence is more specifically trust in one’s ability to achieve some goal, which one meta-analysis suggested is similar to generalization of self-efficacy. Abraham Maslow and many others after him have emphasized the need to distinguish between self-confidence as a generalized personality characteristic, and self-confidence with respect to a specific task, ability or challenge (i.e. self-efficacy).

Concept of two words looks similar. But, there is slight difference between both of words. the former means emotional thing and the latter means more like ability things. so, how meditation can help people to have great self-esteem and self-confidence?

Being more specific: Stress is the physical feeling of the activated Fight-Flight-Freeze-mechanism of the nervous system. In this mechanism the body is ready to either fight, escape or freeze to face death. The whole energy of the body goes into the muscles, which are ready to act. The heart beats faster and stronger to deliver as much oxygen as possible and the body is fully alert for anything happening in your surrounding, so you can act as quickly as possible. In this state all energy, also by the Immune-system and by the part of the body being responsible for healing, is needed and taken. The short term result is that the immune system is inhibited due to cortisol. Thus, the immune system is not able to perform well The long term result is that the body is completely out of balance, unable to recover.

Better Sleep through Meditation

better sleep through meditation
It can be so easy.

‘It is late. The body is tired and there is only the strong desire to fall asleep. But I can not. I try to not think about today or tomorrow. I try to not think about whatever keeps me awake, sometimes I do not even know why am I still awake. I try to not try to fall a sleep. I am so tired. However, I find myself awake on one side of the bed, then on the other side, then on my back. The next day I wake up and feel terrible, as If I would have partied all night or as I would have had to many drinks. I am tired, energyless and can not wait the day to be over, to catch up with my sleep again.’

Everyone has expierenced this. Some of us sometimes, some of us regularly and some of us to a very high extent, too. However, we expierenced that people who meditate regularly are happily stating that this issue dissolves, and how it completely dissapears over time.

But how can meditation increase the quality of sleep?

When the mind wanders, it is restless. Some thoughts or elements in life are regulalry returning to our minds. This keeps one awake and stresses the body. Due to meditation one realizes which thoughts are constantly coming into our minds, keep us awake and how to let go of them. We highly recommend to try out our free Seminar. With this one can see how the sleeping pattern will change over time. In our guidance and individual mentoring we offer an easy meditation method one can apporach before going to bed. It helps to easily let go of the day and to fall a sleep like a baby.

The Images of the Mind and Meditation

Images make our mind. People create their own mind world by taking pictures of their life. So, we are always taking pictures of our surroundings by our eyes, nose, mouth, ears and even by using the body. Through the creation of our own imaginary world, we create pictures which make our mind happy, sad, mad, jealous, fearful, guilty. As an example: the same event one has experienced can be seen from very different ways: when you in a good mood you see it as a beautiful memory, when you in a bad or sad mood the same memory turns into a painful event. It is not the event which created that pain, it is looking back to an non existing event and creating pictures about something which is not really existing anymore.

Our meditation is to let go of these false images to be able to see the true nature of events and life. We have a free Introduction Seminar where you can have a look at all the images you have. Our mentoring and guided meditation can support you to let go of these images, to be free from worry, pain or sadness.

If you are interested, please contact us.

Thank you

Meditation Quotes : Abandon

Meditation Quotes

Today, I want to introduce the poem ‘Abandon’. As you can see it suggest to give up your attachment, discernment, knowledge, pride etc. At first glance, it may does not make sense, because these things define who we are. But, If we look deeply inside of us, we find that these ideas and constructs makes one suffer the most. As an example, it is not about giving up wealth and prosperty, it is about letting go of the attachement towards it. Especially, when things do not turn out the way we want them to. This is painful. But, if we don’t attach to it and just do, we will see positivity in every Situation. We can learn from it and be thankful for it. Thus, we can stay happy.

Moreover, if have a lot of pride and always think we are right, we create conflicts with other people easily and are unhappy. In worst case, we end up as a selfish person, who is not loved from anyone. But, If we have none of these elements within us, we can talk to everybody with respect and we learn from eachother. To let go of everything we do not feel comfortable with, we have a Free Introduction Seminar.

We hope you are gonna join us.

If you cannot reply on this question positively, maybe you are stressed. As well known, stress is the cause of all diseases. It can destroy your daily life. So, we have to let go of our stress regularly. But how? I can strongly say, that the key to eliminate stress is meditation. By meditating, we reduce stress and feel more relax, we even treat our body in the most possible way. It is important to handle stress immediately, before it gets worse over time.

The group MM (yellow line) is the group participating in the meditation program and the group SME (grey line) is the group taking part in a self-care education program.

Best 10 things you can do during Quarantine

meditation corona

To get the most out of your stay in quarantine we have 10 things to uplift your life and to stay as happy as possible.

  1. Meditation: If you can not go outside, go inside.

During this time, it is of great importance to keep your happiness. The happier you are, the stronger your immune system is. Looking inward allows you to understand what is happening within you and gives you the freedom to stay calm with great compassion during this time. We highly recommend you to meditate, try different methods or techniques, even if it is just for a short time a day. Of course increasing your meditation time daily will benefit your health and memory to great effects, also after the quarantine. If you have the opportunity to participate in online guided meditation, meditating will even be easier for you.

2. The Power of ‘Thank you

The word ‘Thank you’ is a great tool to increase your life quality easily. Make a great habit out of it and remind you to say ‘thank you’ at least a few hundred times a day. We promise you, you are not gonna get enough of this.

3. Stay Positive

To be fair: nobody expected it, but now: here we are. And if we are here now and doing this thing is called life, why not making the best out of it? Let us stay positive and ask yourself ‘how can I make the most out of my stay indoor?’

4. Let your dreams come true

For real: now you have the time to try something out you never really had the time for. Any language you always wanted to try or learn? Any type of dance or exercise which was calling for your attention? Or an instrument? YouTube gives you great opportunities to try things out and even to participate in challenges which last up to 30 days.

5. Rituals are the key

In case you have decided to join a challenge on YouTube (let’s say like yoga or a language) give it a specific time. It is easier to keep on track with something you decided on if you give it a specific time. Wake up, get it started. Other rituals are important too: Keep your meals at a similar time. Your body loves it. Enjoy the routine and the rituals and you will see: time flies.

6. Move as much as possible

Enjoying one or two movies as well as series can be fun, yes, but we recommend you to keep moving as much as possible. Energy creates energy. So to keep vital and healthy, with a high level of energy throughout your stay you need to keep moving. The more you move, the less you think, the happier the body is and there more energy you have for all the beautiful things you enjoy doing.

7. Keep yourself as busy as possible

When you ask the most successful people in the world, why they are not worried, they will tell you: ‘I do not have time for thing about that stuff.’ True words. Keep your rituals going, keep a routine going. If you have not established one yet: great now is the time to go for it. There are plenty articles out to set your mind right there and to get you going for a great routine. You will see how easy it is and how much you gonna love it to keep doing and moving.

8. Keep it clean

Not only to keep moving cleaning is a key, also to stay really healthy and focused on things you wanna do throughout the day. If it is clean and organized around you, your mind will feel the same.

9. Facetime with love ones

To Meet up with friends and family members on facetime or skype can be very exciting and special. For the brain similar regions are stimulated, so it will be almost like seeing them in real. Great, that we can make the best out of it: How about cooking together, having dinner or playing some online games or just seeing each other, enjoying the beauty of being in company or even figuring out how a date online would be. Get creative and have fun.

10. Let the air breeze

Last but not least: Keep the windows open or let some air in whenever you can. Your brain will love the breeze and thank you with great health and the best support. By opening the windows, you can also remind yourself to take a deep breath in and out. Just as a little tool to remind you, that all there is is this breath in this moment.

If you guys have any further recommendations on what to do during quarantine, please let us know. We will share it! Stay positive and healthy. Let us make the most out of it.

La méditation au temps du coronavirus

meditation coronavirus

Pendant que tout le monde parle de corona et covid, les préparations pour l’ouverture du centre de méditation continuent.

Bien sûr, à l’ordre du jour, beaucoup de méditation!

La méditation peut réellement aider à surmonter des périodes compliquées et retrouver la sérénité nécessaire à affronter les nouveaux défis.

N’étant pas possible de se retrouver pour méditer en groupe, les options qui se présentent à nous pour méditer sont les suivantes :

  • Méditer seuls à la maison
  • Méditer en étant guidés en ligne avec l’aide de logiciels gratuits comme Skype ou Zoom
  • Méditer au parc en respectant les distances de sécurité

Chaque situation peut être perçue négativement ou positivement, l’opportunité de cette période est probablement d’avoir plus de temps pour se recentrer sur soi et réaliser ce qui compte vraiment dans la vie.
