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."

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

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.
