15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners

Recent research in both psychology and neuroscience clearly shows that daydreaming is an essential part of mental processing, reasoning and, yes, even learning.

Daydreaming is the Mind’s Natural State

The most common view of the human mind assumes that our normal way of thinking consists of concentrated focus upon immediate tasks at hand. But researchers have found that this is not the case.

Daydreaming is now considered to be the normal state of our minds, with focus appearing as a break from the more common mind wandering. A recent study has found that our mind wanders forty seven percent of the time we are awake with very few activities not equally peppered with natural periods of daydreaming.

Paula King, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 10, 2014 1:53 PM

Today I read about a study regarding information processing and memory decrements  by age.  What I found interesting was that the researchers did a simulation (using big data analytics) which found that aging brains, because they know so many more words and concepts than younger brains, do take longer to find a word than younger brains but not due to aging, due to the time it takes for the brain to sift through all the words it knows to find the right one.  

 

Perhaps, living more simply could slow brain aging using the argument that less is more and small is beautiful.

7 Ways to Be More Optimistic (but Still See Things As They Are)

7 Ways to Be More Optimistic (but Still See Things As They Are) | Social | Scoop.it

"The other day a friend of mine said, “I’m just over everything. What’s the point?” She was referring to love, but also life in general. “I just don’t care anymore, nothing ever comes of anything anyways.” Of course we’re going to feel off kilter sometimes and unsure if anything good will ever happen, especially if we’ve been hurt or gipped in the past. But, believe it or not, for good things to happen, we have to believe that they will. “If you assume in favor of yourself and act as if it is possible, then you will do the things that are necessary to bring about the result,” says Jack Canfield in his book The Success Principles.  What that means is that the more we believe we are capable of achieving our dreams, the more right actions we take to make them happen. The belief that good things will happen is also known as optimism."

Glass is an always-ready smart device that answers your questions, alerts you to messages, and gives you driving directions. The see-through display is just out of your direct line of sight. When you choose to consult the display, it looks like a smartphone screen held eight inches from your face. But when you are doing something else, Glass is easy to ignore. Google’s challenge in making the device a successful consumer product will be convincing the people around you to ignore it as well.

Self-compassion is the act of extending kind thoughts towards yourself. Learn how to live with more self-compassion today.

 

1. Start With The Basics

 

It’s very difficult to extend any compassion towards yourself if you aren’t letting yourself meet your most basic needs.

 

Get full nights of rest, eat clean and nutritious food, and get some form of exercise at least two or three times per week.

 

Living a sedentary lifestyle, with little rest, and a sugary, white flour based diet is the fastest way to burn out on a cellular level. Just because you have opposable thumbs and the ability to think rationally doesn’t mean that you aren’t an animal that has certain needs to maintain a baseline level of health.
