It really will make a difference. Some other important tips: I am a big advocate of the Desk-a-Doo for aiding elementary students (available online at www. Compartmentalize. Make large, open storage into smaller, more manageable segments. Be overly obvious and embrace your label-maker. With our OCD tendencies, Aspies are notorious pack-rats. Be aware that the student may be afraid of being penalized for throwing things away. This will give the Asperkid a visual reminder as to which way is up, and help avoid embarrassing spills in crowded halls. More advanced practical life tasks, called Grace and Courtesy in Montessori lingo, echo the manners every involved adult (parents and teachers) must teach Asperkids so that they can function in a neurotypical world; He notes that people are often afraid to tell others about their experiences because they fear they will be ridiculed or considered crazy. For example, a financial planner who had an SDE said, If my business associates heard about this, my name would be mud. Do you think any of them would let me handle their money? However, the number of reported SDEs might understate how often they occur. Dr Moody recalls describing SDEs in lectures, and 5 to 10 percent of the people would raise their hands saying it had happened to them. Dr Moody claims that it was only slightly less than the number who raised their hands when asked if they'd had near-death experiences. If SDEs are occurring with such regularity, why hasn't science explored them more deeply? Further investigation seems like a worthy endeavor. The implications for understanding consciousness are too profound to ignore. Fear-death experiences

Not Your Body. The sentiment behind it had pure intentions: to illustrate how we can change our perspective and not feel the need to change our body in order to be okay. What I didn't realize back then was that this exhortation was most certainly exclusionary to those who felt like they DID need to change their bodies in order to fully be who they really were. This was brought up when I was in a meeting with several transgender faculty and community members, and I quickly saw the exclusion. That title is now Change the World. Love Your Body. I may be slow, but I'm working on it. I was grateful for that particular group of gracious individuals for pointing out how important those words are. There is too much exclusion within the body positive community that happens out of ignorance (hi, me here), and it can usually be quickly changed if brought to the perpetrator's attention. I would imagine that the ignorant people who say fat people shouldn't jump in elevators are concerned that this would break the hydraulic or rope system. You can expect four results from a course or product: Saving time, Making or saving money, Saving mental energy, or Providing emotional benefits. 1) Saving time Time is more valuable than money. Therefore, the amount of time a course can save you is one of the most important factors to take into consideration. Many courses allow you to learn from someone who has already achieved the results you desire. By following a successful person's method, you can dramatically reduce your learning curve and achieve results much faster.

Rather than paying NASA prices for engine nozzles and manifolds and heat shields, SpaceX manufactured its own at a fraction of the cost. The happy side-benefit of this was greater control over inventory, as aerospace delivery times for parts from manufacturers were notoriously bad. Next, Musk sought simplification. He reduced complexity by making the various stages of his rocket the same diameter, with the same engines. Whereas most rockets used fuel tanks of diminishing fatness (the Shuttle, for example, had two small boosters and one big booster, which required different tools, parts, and procedures to build and maintain), Falcon's two stages could be built with the same jigs and tooling, the same electronics, and the same engineers. The strategy lowered costs, says Musk, by at least a factor of two, and perhaps as much as three or four compared to similar vehicles elsewhere. This came despite the conventional wisdom in the space industry, academia, etc, that rocket costs couldn't be reduced by more than a few percent. That's great, except the Falcon had already failed twice. So much for cost savings. Before he could go to Mars, Musk had to prove he could put something into space at all. It's crucial in my work that we address these worries and help parents to alleviate them, as their ability to be regulated and calm is central to their child's ability to be regulated and calm. Anxiety needs to be met with validation, empathy and calmness. Malie: I totally agree. It's nearly impossible for a child to regulate themselves if a parent is full up with their own worries. So how did you go about helping Alex's parents? Siobhan: My focus was on identifying, validating and normalising their worries, and trying to promote their own self-care in between sessions. This was really successful in enabling Alex's parents to better support him. In just a few short weeks we began to see a significant reduction in his parents' own anxiety levels, which had a knock-on effect on Alex's too. Simple tips I gave the parents in the early stages of therapy included: Acknowledge and validate your own feelings as parents.

She doesn't understand my life'. Why have you read this far into the article then? Let's just admit it once and for all that judgement, unconscious bias -- whatever you want to call it -- exists in all of us. We choose to see what we want to see and with that we judge. We judge the working parent, the non-working parent, those with children, those who choose not to have children, the single parent, the divorced parent, the straight couple, the gay couple . We judge those gracing the front covers of our magazines while standing in line to pay for groceries: `Of course they look amazing; What chance of engaging in the right way have we honestly got if we're constantly judging each other's lives and career choices rather than embracing what individuals are doing and standing for? Start noticing what's going on for you. When you're judging, simply try to give yourself a virtual telling off and get with the moment. Get curious and instead ask: Why must Arjun surrender to Krishna on the brink of war? Why submit to god or the understanding of a higher being/reality/consciousness as a means to prepare for the upcoming conflict? What wisdom is Krishna trying to instill in Arjun before Arjun goes to war? It is said that the true sign of a man's power is the measure of his surrender. Krishna wants Arjun to drop his attachment to the world and to all his actions and surrender to him because, through this submission, there is no ego. If there is no ego, there is a state of no mind. In this state of illumination, Arjun can see the world for what it actually is. A hallucination and nothing more. Once Arjun comes to the realisation that what awaits him (the war) is not real, he will uphold his duty as a warrior and fight this war. All of Arjun's fears would have left him in an instant.

On the other hand, Twin B stays a glass-half-full person; brain looks for evidence that affirms either one of these mantras; Test your confirmation bias right now. Look around the room as you say the word red to yourself. Do you see how your eye notices the red in the room even though the colors in the room did not change? That's a simple example, but confirmation bias is what often leads us to jump to conclusions. SVT helps you to change the lens so you can use Twin B's type of confirmation bias: looking for the what's right. It's like Lasik for your brain. What's your negative mantra? What evidence does your brain find to support it? In some people OSA interruptions are so frequent that sufferers experience no deep sleep at all. The result is further fatigue, leading to reduced daytime performance, a general inability to concentrate, and excessive daytime sleepiness (given the term OSA Syndrome). In these cases activities such as driving are extremely dangerous. There are also physiological effects of OSA. Regular, intermittent breaks in oxygen to the brain can have lasting effects on the brain's make-up, leading to a stroke. Breathing impairment is associated with major changes in blood pressure, and the entire scenario may ultimately lead to long-term damage in your heart, brain, and blood vessels. The good news is that, once diagnosed, OSA is perfectly treatable. SLEEP SCIENCE OSA: SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS Other types of sleep apnoea
