10 Signs Your Life Is On Track, Even When It Doesn't Feel Like It

We can be in only one of two states: Either our minds are running us or we are running our minds. We struggle because we think we aren't supposed to struggle.

Helen Teague's insight:

Sound advice by Shannon Kaiser. We struggle because we think we aren't supposed to struggle. Kaiser writes that we need to "Be compassionate with yourself and embrace your humanity. Incorporating happiness into our lives is a dedicated practice. Like any new skill, we must allow ourselves to be beginners at first. We stumble, we get angry with ourselves because we aren't seeing results; This only adds intense pressure that prevents us from moving forward. I bet you're doing a lot better than you give yourself credit for."

The greatest people in history have been failures. Certainly, we remember these individuals as successes--success stories--and we treat those stories as legends and those individuals as gods. But each of them failed epically and repeatedly, more so than the combined successes of all of humanity. Failure should not be overlooked in anyone, especially not those we admire. It is through failure that these individuals were able to learn, grow and ultimately succeed.

How to Avoid the Empathy Trap - Mindful

How to Avoid the Empathy Trap - Mindful | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
Do you prioritize other people's feelings over your own? You might be falling into the "empathy trap."
Helen Teague's insight:

By Robin Stern and Diana Divecha:

Overly empathic people may even lose the ability to know what they want or need. They may have a diminished ability to make decisions in their own best interest, experience physical and psychological exhaustion from deflecting their own feelings, and may lack internal resources to give their best to key people in their life. What’s more, unending empathy creates vulnerability to gaslighting, in which another person negates your own reality to assert his or hers. For example, when you express your dismay to your friend about being excluded from her last few get-togethers, and she replies, “Oh, you’re just being too sensitive.” Sadly, in relationships marked by unequal power, those in the low-power position are more likely to defer to the needs of those in the high-power position. Doing so helps them hold on to the attachment—at the cost of becoming the architects of their own disenfranchisement.

Why green spaces are good for your kid’s brain | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
Schools with more greenery improve kids' brain development, study finds.
Helen Teague's insight:

Children generally show improvement over time on cognitive tests, as their brains develop. But kids with more exposure to greenery improved more, on average, in working memory, higher order “superior working memory,” and attentiveness. Interestingly, however, the greenness of the home (or lack thereof) didn’t seem to matter much — rather, it was the greenness of the commute and especially the school that made the difference.

‘Brain-to-Text’ system converts speech brainwave patterns to text

‘Brain-to-Text’ system converts speech brainwave patterns to text | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
German and U.S. researchers have decoded natural continuously spoken speech from brain waves and transformed it into text — a step toward communication with computers or humans by thought alone.

Their “Brain-to-Text” system recorded signals from an electrocorticographic (ECoG)* electrode array located on relevant surfaces of the frontal and temporal lobes of the cerebral cortex of seven epileptic patients, who participated voluntarily in the study during their clinical treatment.

The patients read sample text (from a limited set of words) aloud during the study. Machine learning algorithms were then used to extract the most likely word sequence from the signals, and automatic speech-to-text methods created the text output. The system achieved word error rates as low as 25% and phone (instances of phonemes in utterances) error rates below 50%.

The researchers suggest that the Brain-to-Text system might lead to a speech-communication method for locked-in (unable to communicate) patients in the future.

Each makes choices, more or less freely, at a more or less happy whim, and lines her own library or museum, if only invisibly, in her head." by Adam Gopnik
