How Changing Your Reading Habits Can Transform Your Health My favorite book is War and Peace. And I know what you're thinking: "Oh, another writer wanting people to think he’s all intellectual and highbrow." But it really is my favorite book, only not because it has 1,500 pages of unforgettable characters or a generational plot that is more compelling than that of any other book I’ve read. It’s because right before I started reading it, my life was in a rut. I had recently been passed over for a promotion at Apple and I had just been rejected by a graduate school I applied to. This double whammy left me doubting myself, my abilities, and my future. Two months later, I finished the book and immediately knew I had a new "favorite." But according to Dr Josie Billington, deputy director of the Centre for Research into Reading at the University of Liverpool, my experience wasn’t so odd. And those possible avenues of action don’t have to mimic those in the book. Advertisement The Physical and Societal Benefits of Reading Billington agrees. 1. 2. 3. 4.

From Scattered To Centered – The Book Like so man y of us, Dr. Alicia Maher had spent her young life struggling with her own short attention span and was often was at the mercy of her impulses. She would fidget through classes, dinner, and church and had trouble organizing her tasks, but never thought there was ever a reason, other than her excitement about all the things that she could be experiencing in that very moment. Her condition did not go unnoticed by others, either. Compelled to address her own condition in a holistic manner, and knowing the limitations of allopathic medicine and standard psychological therapeutic treatments, Maher embarked on 15 years of study; practicing and teaching in academic medicine, maintaining her yoga and spiritual practices, living in an ashram yoga retreat and observing medical care during travel to more than 30 countries.

The Mindfulness Bell : a journal of the art of mindful living What is Differentiated Instruction? Examples of Strategies Just as everyone has a unique fingerprint, each student has an individual style of learning.

There is Something Better than Finding a Soulmate. They say that when we’re choosing a tennis partner it is best to find someone that plays better than us so that it will help to improve our game. Unfortunately, this kind of sucks for the better player if what they’re looking for is a challenge and the hope of improving their own game. Romantic love works pretty much the same way…sort of. Romantic love thrives best when both partners share a perception of equality between them and it struggles when we don’t. Perception of equality means something very different to equality in the traditional sense of the word. This type of equality is based on how both partners feel with and about each other. Different than “Soulmates”—a term which can have more of an esoteric, intangible, serendipitous quality to it—“Soul Equals” are on similar spiritual paths to each other. The two concepts often do merge, but not always. When the sh*t hits the fan, Soul Equals do not run, hide or blame—instead, they pause, reflect and talk. Relephant! Author: Debra Warshaw
