Panel’s Warning on Climate Risk: Worst Is Yet to Come

Panel’s Warning on Climate Risk: Worst Is Yet to Come | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
A United Nations report warned that climate change is already having sweeping effects and the poorest nations are likely to feel the most severe impacts.
Larry Glover's insight:

What does it mean for a human soul to land on planet earth at this time in history? What are our obligations to the future anyway? Might there be a clear path forward, or must we just muddle our way into the future? This is a report not to be ignored.

(From the article): When we look at what’s wrong, instead of looking at what’s right, we get mired down in feelings of despair and dread. But when we shift our focus to what is working, our brains actually respond! We can literally change our world simply by taking a different perspective. It doesn’t change the facts, but it does change how we feel about them.

Chronic stress in early life causes anxiety, aggression in adulthood, neurobiologists find

Chronic stress in early life causes anxiety, aggression in adulthood, neurobiologists find | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
In experiments to assess the impacts of social stress upon adolescent mice, both at the time they are experienced and during adulthood, a laboratory team conducted many different kinds of stress tests and means of measuring their impacts. The research indicates that a 'hostile environment in adolescence disturbs psychoemotional state and social behaviors of animals in adult life,' the team says.
Larry Glover's insight:

This research reports both an innate resilience to early life stress and latent biological and behavioral effects. Good reasons to invest in quality self care practices such as receiving coaching on quality self-care practices such as mindfulness, deep nature immersion and purpose and meaning literacy.

Self-Compassion: How To Stop Being So Damn Hard On Yourself

You are your own worst critic. Self-compassion is the act of extending kind thoughts towards yourself. Learn how to live with more self-compassion today.

 

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.

Brain scans link concern for justice with reason, not emotion

Brain scans link concern for justice with reason, not emotion | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it
People who care about justice are swayed more by reason than emotion, according to new brain scan research. Psychologists have found that some individuals react more strongly than others to situations that invoke a sense of justice — for example, seeing a person being treated unfairly, or with mercy. The new study used brain scans to analyze the thought processes of people with high “justice sensitivity.”
Larry Glover's insight:

This research presents an interesting flip on the 'mushy liberal' image as emotional. Rather, the concern for justice seems to arise 'out of higher cognitive functioning.'

Kathleen Harren has progressed from director of nursing, to chief nurse executive, to regional director of the Nursing Institute at the Mary Medical Center in Torrance, Calif.


She believes in order to progress everyone needs “to [be able to] speak on any particular issue without being fully prepared. To be flexible and articulate and confident enough,” even when you don’t know everything, because “we can’t know everything.”
