    Meditation: It Just Keeps Getting Better

    I've learned a lot from my research about meditation. It was easy to find benefits of meditation, but the struggle was finding consequences. Some of the consequences that I did find, however, were releases of hidden and traumatizing memories...

    • Hi Lily,

      I thought it was very interesting that you found some negative side effects of meditation. I hadn’t thought of things like trauma memories resurfacing, that’s pretty crazy. Meditation is definitely something I’ve been thinking of looking into! Thank for your input.

    • This is very interesting and informational. I have always been a huge supporter of meditation but I never thought about the fact that it could have negative side effects. Maybe they could be not negative at all and are good because it’s a way of dealing with repressed memories. Sometimes that can be a healing experience. I don’t know, I’m not a psychologist. Interesting article, thanks for sharing:)

    Lily commented on the post, Coffee Research

    Genevieve, as an avid coffee drinker, I am very interested in what you have to say. While I’m sure there are both benefits and consequences to coffee, it’s strange that no one really focuses on the benefits. I, like you said, have never thought about the vitamins in coffee. Perhaps something else you can research is the effect of coffee in…Read More

  • Hello Celia. I can’t say that I’ve ever put so much thought into trigger warnings, but I like what you have to say about them. In this technologically advanced age, it is important that we, as users, look out for one another. I agree that it is vital for social media to have warnings, as not everyone is keen to seeing alarming/violent content.…Read More

    Lily commented on the post, Save the Bees!

    Anna, I quite like your post. While I agree that saving the bees is important and good for the world, I can’t say that I am very excited about personally planting shrubs that will attract the little monsters. Alas, the environment wins. Nice post.

    • This is a very interesting topic Lily 🙂 I enjoy meditation and have seen it transform some of my family members, reducing their anxiety and depression. I usually practice meditation after yoga, but just having a daily practice of meditation has helped me reduce anxiety, as well as increase motivation. I am excited to see what else you learn, good luck!!

    • Lilly, this is a topic that relates to all of us.It could be neat if you looked at people like monks that mediate for a large amount time in their lives and how it impacts them. You could also look into the effects it has on youth.

    • I really like the info about meditations if you can tell 🙂 This is so interesting to learn about. Yesterday, I did a one hour yoga session and just from that I could feel a substantial difference in my mental well being.

    • I love this topic! I don’t do meditation often but when I do I feel more awake and aware of my surroundings. I usually do meditation in my yoga practices and it helps me increase my mood and motivation. I can’t wait to hear more about what you find about this topic!

    • Hi Lily,
      I really enjoyed reading this. I have always wanted to try meditation as someone who has a lot of stress and doesn’t know how to cope with it. I just don’t have the time to dedicate towards it. Hopefully I can manage to get this time in because it seems like it would be beneficial.
