Emotions have strong influence on our body and the functioning of our organs. Negative emotions trigger hyperactivity of organs by adding stress to their normal level of functioning. The clinical team at hospitals recommend mindfulness-based interventions that are a form of meditation for overall health and support in order to maintain emotion regulation and other physical ailments. Doctors have seen neuroimaging structures to relate the function of the brain regions where emotions are regulated. The findings discussed that meditation play a role in the management of emotions, which is collectively good for physical and mental health of a human being [Reference: https://positivepsychologyprogram.com/benefits-of-mindfulness/].
Another unique form of meditation – called “Loves Kindness Meditation” (also known as LKM), promotes positive emotions and produces pleasant effects on human body. Almost 24 studies have been done that reported positive results on emotions of the participants. There are some variations in the results for which further studies are required. In the future, growing popularity of this meditation will strengthen the bonding of this practice for compassionate feelings and behaviors. In this way, meditation has open doors for identifying and applying the interventions for optimal emotional health [Reference: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/05/090519104103.htm].
Emotional responses are natural and they are directed by thoughts in our mind. These emotion-based interventions monitor the increase in the benefits of clinical effects that meditation has on emotions. Disrupted emotional experiences leads to poor physical and mental health. The self-processing of emotions in human mind cause the emotions to fluctuate that in turn release stress hormones that have devastating effects on internal organs and their functions. Obesity, diabetes cancer and cardiac diseases are top on the list [Reference: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnhum.2013.00012/full]. These neuro-scientific perspectives must be taken into common dialogues to plan and implement psychotherapeutic strategies for emotional health enhancement.
Another chronic illness that accounts for physical dependence due to unhealthy mind is addiction. The symptoms are obsessions and compulsions about a drug of abuse or a substance. It is emerged from impairment in self-control and high emotional experiences that are rewarded by drug. The cycle continues, whenever a person feels the emotional rush or low emotions they crave for the same substance they abuse as incentive. To deal with all these reactions, meditation works on the control networks by improving emotional competence and coping as a promising approach to get rid of this chain [Reference: https://qz.com/620839/science-finally-proves-that-meditation-makes-your-body-markedly-less-stressed/].
