[1]|- October 29, 1949), also commonly referred to as Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff and G. I. Bardo Thodol. The Bardo Thodol (Tibetan: བར་དོ་ཐོས་གྲོལ, Wylie: bar do thos grol), "Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State", is a text from a larger corpus of teachings, the "Profound Dharma of Self-Liberation through the Intention of the Peaceful and Wrathful Ones",[note 1] revealed by Karma Lingpa (1326–1386).

Bardo Thodol

It is the best-known work of Nyingma literature, being known in the west as the Tibetan Book of the Dead. §Etymology[edit] Bardo thosgroll (Tibetan: བར་དོ་ཐོས་གྲོལ, Wylie: bar do thos grol: bar do, Sankrit antarabhāva - "intermediate state", "transitional state", "in-between state", "liminal state". Mnemonic major system. The Major System (also called the phonetic number system, phonetic mnemonic system, or Herigone's mnemonic system) is a mnemonic technique used to aid in memorizing numbers.

Mnemonic major system

The system works by converting numbers into consonant sounds, then into words by adding vowels. The system works on the principle that images can be remembered more easily than numbers. The system[edit] Each numeral is associated with one or more consonants. Vowels and the consonants w, h, and y are ignored. Sleep medicine. Sleep medicine is a medical specialty or subspecialty devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disturbances and disorders.

Sleep medicine

From the middle of the 20th century, research has provided increasing knowledge and answered many questions about sleep-wake functioning.[1] The rapidly evolving field[2] has become a recognized medical subspecialty in some countries. Dental sleep medicine also qualifies for board certification in some countries. Properly organized, minimum 12-month, postgraduate training programs are still being defined in the United States.[3][4] In some countries, the sleep researchers and the physicians who treat patients may be the same people. Brain fitness. The term brain fitness reflects a hypothesis that cognitive abilities can be maintained or improved by exercising the brain, in analogy to the way physical fitness is improved by exercising the body.

Brain fitness

Although there is strong evidence that aspects of brain structure remain plastic throughout life, and that high levels of mental activity are associated with reduced risks of age-related dementia, scientific support for the concept of "brain fitness" is limited. The term is virtually never used in the scientific literature, but is commonly used in the context of self-help books and commercial products.[1] It first came into play in the 1980s, and appeared in the titles of self-help books in 1989[2] and 1990.[3] §Overview[edit] Brain fitness can be measured physically at the cellular level by neurogenesis, the creation of new neurons, and increased functional connections of synapses and dendrites between neurons. §Neurogenesis[edit] Main article: Neurogenesis §Mental stimulation[edit]

Smoking cessation. Smoking cessation (colloquially quitting smoking) is the process of discontinuing tobacco smoking.

Smoking cessation

Tobacco contains nicotine, which is addictive,[1] making the process of quitting often very prolonged and difficult. Smoking cessation can be achieved with or without assistance from healthcare professionals, or the use of medications. However, a combination of personal efforts and medications proves more effective to many smokers.[2] Methods that have been found to be effective include interventions directed at or via health care providers and health care systems; medications including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) and varenicline; individual and group counselling.

Although stopping smoking can cause short-term side effects such as reversible weight gain, smoking cessation services and activities are cost-effective because of the positive health benefits. Tobacco contains nicotine. Methods[edit] Major reviews of the scientific literature on smoking cessation include: Sleep diary. Yoga. Yoga (/ˈjoʊɡə/; Sanskrit: योग, Listen) is an Indian physical, mental, and spiritual practice or discipline.

Yoga

There is a broad variety of schools, practices and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism (including Vajrayana and Tibetan Buddhism[2][3][4]) and Jainism.[5][6][7][6] The best-known are Hatha yoga and Raja yoga. Toastmasters International. "Toastmasters" redirects here.

The meditation practice involves the use of a mantra and is practiced for 15–20 minutes twice per day while sitting with one's eyes closed.[2][3] It is reported to be one of the most-widely practiced,[4][5][6] and among the most widely researched meditation techniques,[7] with over 340 peer-reviewed studies published.[8][9] Beginning in 1965, the Transcendental Meditation technique has been incorporated into selected schools, universities, corporations, and prison programs in the U.S.A., Latin America, Europe, and India.

Smoking cessation. Sleep diary. Coaching. Coaching is training or development in which a person called a "coach" supports a learner in achieving a specific personal or professional goal.

Coaching

The learner is sometimes called a "coachee". Occasionally, "coaching" may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring in focusing on competence specifics, as opposed to general overall development. Wu Xing. Coaching. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder management. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder management are the treatment options available to people with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). There are several effective and evidence-based options to treat people with ADHD. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends different treatment paradigms depending on the age of the person being treated.

For those aged 4–5, the Academy recommends evidence-based parent- and/or teacher-administered behavior therapy, with the addition of methylphenidate only if there is continuing moderate-to-severe functional disturbances. For those aged 6–11, the use of medication in combination with behavior therapy is recommended, with the evidence for stimulant medications being stronger than that for other classes. For those aged 12–18, medication should be prescribed with the consent of the treated adolescent, preferably in combination with behavioral therapy. Memory sport. Memory sport, sometimes referred to as competitive memory or the mind sport of memory, is a competition in which participants attempt to memorize the most information that they can then present back, under certain guidelines.

About one-third[1]p. 44 to two-thirds[2]p. 87 of children with symptoms from early childhood continue to demonstrate notable ADHD symptoms throughout life. Three subtypes of ADHD are identified in the DSM-IV: Predominantly Inattentive (ADHD-PI)Predominantly Hyperactive (ADHD-PH)Combined type (ADHD-C). In later life, the hyperactive/impulsive subtype manifests more frequently[1]p. 44, although with age the hyperactivity symptoms tend to turn more into "inner restlessness" in teens and adults with ADHD.[3] Diagnosis of the condition includes assessment interviews by clinicians with: examination of personal historyobservational evidence from family members or close friendsacademic reports, often going back to school yearsetc.,[7][8] Classification[edit]
