Guided Imagery Significantly Increased Oxygen
Researchers from Tai Po Hospital in Hong Kong explored the effects of guided imagery and relaxation in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), using a randomized controlled design.

At the seventh session, physiological measures were taken and compared to previously, to see if there were any changes in partial percentage of oxygen saturation, heart rate, upper thoracic surface electromyography, skin conductance and peripheral skin temperature.
Results showed that there was a statistically significant (p < 0.05) increase in partial percentage of oxygen saturation in the treatment group, but no significant effects on the other physiological parameters. Further study exploring the psychological effects of guided imagery is suggested.

These range from poor self-esteem to equally unhealthy problems with narcissism. Psychologists, coaches, teachers, and others may evaluate the relative level of someone's self-esteem when establishing whether change may be required.
There are two other areas that I believe directly impact on a person's self-esteem. These are the related concepts of self perception of competence and stress. The...
