There's bad news going on somewhere in the world (including in your cubicle, in your car, in your marriage, in your own life) every day, but resetting your compass won't help. It makes it worse. You still know the right way to go. Just face it: you won't get out of the swamp except by moving forward, slowly. You know, I began, pointing to a group of numbers and equations, all these squiggles are really just made-up labels. Math is actually real. She looked at me, perplexed. And so I began to explain how math was, indeed, very real; For instance, as I touched her eyes gently, people have always had this many eyes, right? She nodded. At some point, someone called this many by a sound: dos, or due, or two. Someone else, somewhere else, decided to make a mark on clay or stone or papyrus that stood for the sound, which stood for the quantity. it was II or b or 2. But whatever the written label - or equation or sentence of labels - it was just a substitute for a very real, touchable, observable, concrete thing: the amount of eyes she had. But what if the results were skewed because the researchers withheld the studies that didn't work, only presenting the studies that did show an effect? Maybe the researchers were dishonest and hid the results they didn't want people to see. This is a pretty serious accusation to make against experimenters. It implies massive fraud and unscrupulous behavior. However, the accusation is often waged against studies like this and is formally known as the file-drawer effect (ie, the experimenters tucked away the bad results in a file drawer so no one would see them, only publishing the favorable results, and inflating the strength of their data). Since file-drawer accusations have been raised so often, experimenters have been forced to show that the file-drawer effect does not explain the positive results.

Experimenters' analyses show that in order for the file-drawer effect to be the explanation for positive results, each of the 30 investigators in the first meta-analysis above would have needed to not report 67 additional studies. As Dr Radin puts it: To generate this many sessions would mean continually running ganzfeld sessions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 36 years, and for not a single one of those sessions to see the light of day. That's not plausible. We should also keep in mind that such questionable research practices (QRPs) are shown to be most common when more funding for research is available. Because every single person in the entire world deserves to feel good about and love themselves. It's that simple. Fat and thin, healthy and unhealthy. So y'know what else I glorify? glorify HAPPINESS. put: glorifying happiness = being invested in the belief that everyone deserves to love their bodies. It seems like such an elementary concept, yet somehow it's one of the world's most controversial. So what about you? Do you believe that everyone deserves a chance to love their bodies? Do you believe that everyone deserves a chance to be happy no matter their size or shape? It might seem a bit overwhelming, and it's certainly not going to happen overnight - no one is expecting you to do this all in one go - but if you take it one step at a time, you'll soon have a wonderfully tidy home. Call up a friend or blast some music to make the process more enjoyable. And remember to make lots of lists to stay on track. clear your clutter REMOVE EVERYTHING Lay out all of your items, so everything is visible.

This is a vital step in the process because you'll see how much stuff you have and where you can start decluttering. SORT IT OUT Place the items in four piles: keep; This will make it easier when it comes to reviewing the items. The secret of the Finland phenomenon, Wagner discovered, was a platform it built by elevating the education level of its teachers. Finland's public school system was experiencing the same thing that made Harvard University's curriculum and network the envy of the academic world: it hired only teachers with incredible qualifications and it had them mentor students closely. Thus, students who went to school at Harvard--or in Finland--started out a rung above their peers. Of course, there are incredible, qualified teachers sprinkled around the globe who do a wonderful job. But to truly raise an education system, every educator must be extremely educated. Students can't have one star teacher and a dozen mediocre instructors if they are to advance more quickly than average, as Finland's students did. Finland made teaching jobs more desirable and job competition increased. Its standards for teachers became higher than other countries. The whole teaching profession has been re-invented there, Wagner said. They have much much better working conditions to prepare lessons, to collaborate with colleagues, to meet with parents and students. If parents consistently model wanting more stuff, then children will naturally follow suit. What's rare is precious, so teaching them this lesson from an early age is invaluable. This isn't a new concept, of course - I read Aesop's The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse to my girls, and it strikes a similar chord. In it, the town mouse isn't impressed by the country mouse's simple offerings, so he invites him to stay in the mansion he shares with a dangerous-looking dog. with the choice of opulence and danger as an alternative to his simpler life, the country mouse eloquently responds, Too many choices

Children's ability to make choices depends not only on their developmental stage, but also on their temperament and state of mind. As with `too much stuff', kids can become overwhelmed when given too many choices about what they would like or what's happening next. This is particularly true of children who are feeling anxious; An invitation to a birthday party might make a child nervous - what if they don't like the food or don't know all the children? It's not about giving anything up but more about where you decide to invest your energy at a given point in time. Sometimes we have to make a choice to invest more time into some areas of our lives and less into others so that everything doesn't come crashing down around us all at once. Have you ever seen a street juggler spinning multiple plates on the end of sticks, masterfully ensuring the right speed and energy to prevent any plates from crashing to the ground? Let's imagine for a moment that you're that juggler with one stick in each hand and one stick somehow being held between your toes. On the end of each stick is a plate and your job is to keep each plate spinning and, in the air, doing whatever you need to do to ensure no plate crashes to the ground. Each plate represents one specific area of your life: Plate #1 represents your work and career and how well you feel you're doing. Plate #2 represents the most important people and relationships in your world -- the people who feed your soul -- and how you're doing in terms of managing the relationships. Plate #3 represents you: your stamina, happiness and general wellbeing and how you're really doing. If you had to mark yourself out of five in terms of how successfully you're spinning each plate and how satisfied you are, right now, with 5 being awesome and 0 being a risk of crashing, how would you rate? When I did come to myself, I found, to my surprise, that I was no longer fidgety. Realizing that this was a good method, of relaxing, in the following days, whenever I was extremely busy with work, I would spare some time to count the flower petals. As time passed, I no longer needed to stare at the flowers. As long as I closed my eyes, roses would pop into my mind. I felt as if I were in a sea of roses, relaxed and happy. Later, I seldom felt fidgety.

I often used this method of counting flower petals when I worked in the hospital. Once, I noticed a scene in a TV program. A mom was counting stars with her young child, who muttered one, two, three, four, and so on. Often, the child got mixed up and start to count again. Believe it or not, you've probably already experienced AVE at some point in your life if you've ever found yourself gazing at a light show set to music or watched swirling fire or glow sticks that were tethered to rope at a luau, drum circle, or electronic dance event. The fire or glow sticks were oscillating to music, and this music was probably in 4/4 time. Remember, that's the musical rhythm of theta waves. The small, wearable AVE device of today uses the same principle as the Brain Wave Synchronizer. How exactly does this modern version of AVE work in your brain? Well, let's say you put the AVE on the theta brain wave setting and pair it with The 3/12/7 Method. The AVE device then is entraining, or synchronizing, your brain waves. Let's unpack this concept. Picture one of those old, glamorous Hollywood movies featuring synchronized swimmers. Now use your subconscious to help you vividly imagine the trio of swimmers. Assuming that it's dark outside and you aren't bothered by the noise or streetlight, leave your curtains open. Although this is too late in the long term, it's counterproductive to associate bed with wakefulness, so it's better to go to bed when there's a high probability that you'll go to sleep. In the morning, get up as soon as either the dawn wakes you or the alarm goes off. Once you've begun to wake naturally before the alarm, bring your bedtime and your alarm time forward by 15 minutes - with bedtime at 11. Repeat the process until you've brought bedtime forward to 10pm and the alarm to 7am. By this point, you should have entrained your body to feel sleepy at ten, and wake naturally by seven.
