1・Are people who talk harshly more likely to have dementia?
A research team of the University of Eastern Finland announced a shocking research result; brains of people who talk harshly and like to be sarcastic are more likely to have dementia.
How did they prove that?! Maybe they were just angry at some guy who talked harshly to them, and said these results just to get back at him! …Thinking this way may actually raise the risk of dementia.
The actual way they conducted researched was, the team gathered 1449 elder men with an average age of 71 who live in eastern Finland, and asked them to answer a questionnaire which tested if there is a relationship between dementia and being sarcastic.
Here are the questions asked.
- Everyone lies to take advantage of others
- The best way to protect yourself is to not trust anyone
- It is normal to be a little dirty to gain profit, rather than lose something.
Pretty harsh questions aren’t they? How many questions did you think you could relate to?
- None of them at all
- Some of them
- All of them
Continuing research for 4 more years, it came out that people who chose 3. “All of them”, had dementia three times more than the people who chose 1. “None of them at all”
Other causes of dementia such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, e.t.c. were also measured and calculated, not to interfere with the results.
This proves that a persons personality is related to the risk of having dementia.
2・How negative feelings make you vulnerable to illnesses
Things that occur when you have negative feelings
- You feel mental stress
- Sympathetic nerves start working excessively
- Adrenaline (a poison) is produced
- Noradrenaline (also a poison) is produced
- Cortisol, a hormone that fights agains stress, is produced
When negative feelings become chronic, and becomes a personality
- Adrenaline and cortisol are continuously produced
- Active enzymes are mass produced
- NK-cells and killer T cells are suppressed
- Your immune system becomes weak
These effects make you vulnerable to illnesses.
The main cause of illness is said to be stress. Looking at the facts above, it can be said that personality is a very big cause of stress.
３・Breath control techniques to prevent negative feelings
Preventing negative feelings is extremely difficult, since it requires controlling the cerebrum.
You may have experience trying to control your negative emotions that gradually come upon you in your daily life, such as when your walking or before going to sleep. But taming those emotions is an extremely difficult task. Even a master of the Japanese drum who plays world wide says that it is impossible for him to control his negative emotions.
Since these thoughts suddenly come upon us when we are not thinking of anything, all you have to do is make yourself think of something else before you have time to become negative.
A good way to do that is to focus on your breathing.
For example, when your walking, try breathing long and slowly from your nose, focusing on exhaling and the movements of your stomach.
Next, breath with the same tempo that you walk. Focus on your hand and feet movements, and your intestinal, muscle, and limb movements. Make an image of all the things that occur in your body while you walk.
You can even do the same when you are sitting or lying down. Focus on your insides.
By doing this, you won’t have any time to think of any negative thoughts.
You may think what good will this procedure do for you, but focusing on your body movements actually allows you to learn new information quicker, such as when training or learning an instrument.
Adding to that, since continuous negative thoughts disrupts your automatic nerves resulting in shallow breathing, breathing deeply stabilizes your automatic nerves, making you mentally healthy.
By doing that, your body becomes less stressful, making it difficult to become ill. True story.
We hope you try it out.
As there is scientific data that proves that stress causes illnesses, there is also scientific proof that smiling makes you healthy. By laughing, your body increases “Natural killer cells”, which helps reduce cancer cells. Hurting someones feelings by talking harshly will eventually poison yourself. Although it may be fun to talk harshly to an extent that doesn’t hurt anyone, it’s better to not talk mean at all. Live your every day life with a smile, for your own good.
