When it comes to enhancing our well-being and decreasing stress levels, changing our diet and exercise habits tend to dominate one very simple thing we can do to improve our health. 

 

In this article, Carolyn Gregorie shares with us an INFOGRAPHIC on this thing we take for granted:  BREATHING.  She shares with us 7 key reasons why it's important to stop and exhale.

Clare Myatt's curator insight, October 8, 2013 4:19 PM

We all breathe, every day, and yet there's so much most of us don't know about breathing.

Disconnect: A New Movie Sounds the Alarm About Our Hyper-Connected Lives

Disconnect: A New Movie Sounds the Alarm About Our Hyper-Connected Lives | Lived Time | Scoop.it

In the 1840s, Benjamin Disraeli, still a long way from being prime minister of England, wanted to wake people up to the plight of the British working class -- and move them to act. The alarm he sounded wasn't delivered in a speech, a pamphlet, or an article -- but in a novel, Sybil, published in 1845. It had the desired effect -- raising awareness, provoking outrage, and leading to the passage of several fundamental social reforms.

Dr M Funes's insight:

Learn about the importance of going on a digital diet regularly to connect with lived time. Technology helps us get things done but splits our attention and encourages us not to be fully present with those we are connecting with.

Dr M Funes's insight:

A powerful argument for developing the skils of lived time in the way we relate to technology. If we do not teach our children to be alone, they will only know how to be lonely, she warns us. A plea for developing skilful habits of mind in how we relate to each other view technololgy. shold we ask for conversational Thursdays instead of casual fridays? Shoul we be fighting to reclaim conversation as the next fronteir for a good life? These are all questions the book raises and she sums up well in this short TED talk.

Why we should still be writing academic essays at university

Why we should still be writing academic essays at university | Lived Time | Scoop.it

"I have been wanting to write this post for a while, but I had the sense that I needed to do a bit more by way of research in order to write it well, and have thus been putting it off. I always seem to have too many other things to do."

 

"The university essay will endure. Not because of what students write about in these pieces of work, but because of what these extended exercises in reading, thinking and writing are training students to do in terms of developing their capacity to join and contribute to, and also to extend, society’s conversations about itself."

Dr M Funes's insight:

If depth of study teaches critical thinking, then we need to work at digesting data through slow reading and in lived time - this is tough in a world that limits thinking to 140 characters in most realms and not just Twitter. Twitter is the antithesis of lived time, but I guess we have to take time to think how to limit our thoughts to 140 characters..but wait there is an app for that #tweetforaslongasyouwant so you dont have to think about editing. Just keep passing it along creating the illusion of having digested what we pass on seems to be the curse of our digital lives.

Bup Woon Sunim's curator insight, June 17, 2013 8:57 PM

It is no wonder we, as a culture, are so stressed. Everything is designed to grab our attention and take our focus away from really living in the moment. We need to learn to resist all of these attention grabbers and pay attention to what is happening right in front of us.

Leslie Malin, LCSW-R's curator insight, September 8, 2013 1:41 PM

Stop and consider...As a society we are addicted to urgency.  Yes, it's an addiction.  We try to slow down our minds and we get anxious, restless, and can't sit focus.  Our bodies react likewise- we tap our feet, we can't get comfortable, our breathing gets shallow. Everything screams out for that drug, coffee, drink. Or, in this case, Urgency. Answering phones,checking that email, wrting that text; Pinterest, Facebook, Blog, Whatever.  I ask you this. What in your life is really IMPORTANT?  Is it the same things that are filling your life and days with urgency?

"Cultivating mindfulness takes daily practice. Mindfulness allows us to live in the present, bringing a deeper understanding of what is happening and how we respond to it. I urge you to give it a try. You will be glad you did, and so will those around you."

Followers, Likes, Retweets, Comments, Visits: Social currency. Can social
popularity take us off the course of growth and where we were intended to go?

Dr M Funes's insight:

 A thoughtful post that asks: Can social popularity take us off the course of growth and where we were intended to  go? Answers yes and offers ways to disconnect to connect. "I began to pull back. To withhold posting tweets, shots, posts — I'd turn down speaking opportunities because I knew that if successful, they could enable the addiction within me. I'd play this little  game every time I felt the urge to post anything. I'd ask myself "Rogie, what's your intent with this?" Most often that would result in not posting anything because I knew my heart's intent was wrong."

10 things I learned about productivity meditating for 35 hours last week | Lived Time | Scoop.it

Integrating meditation and mindfulness into your everyday life is simple. Mindfulness involves slowing down, and giving an activity your complete focus. Find an activity that does’t require a ton of thinking, and then slow way down and pay special attention to the actions your body and mind want to perform naturally. Boom! You’re now practicing mindfulness.
