HOW THE BRAIN LEARNS....

How the brain learns throughout life
Neuroscientists have well established that the brain has a highly robust and well-developed capacity to change in response to environmental demands, a process called plasticity.

This involves creating and strengthening some neuronal connections and weakening or eliminating others.
The degree of modification depends on the type of learning that takes place, with long-term learning leading to more profound modification.

It also depends on the period of learning, with infants experiencing extraordinary growth of new synapses. But a profound message is that plasticity is a core feature of the brain throughout life.

GIVE RESPECT TO OUR CHILDREN

Respecting your child

In my previous post, i requested the parents and elders to tecah respect to their children,in connection with that here, i request the parents and teachers and others to give respect to our children.By giving respect to the children we can inculcate this habit easily among them.

Learning to treat children with respect will require a change of heart, that can come only from a major shift in consciousness of how we see our children and how we define respect.

Like adults, children have human dignity too. To treat a person with respect is to acknowledge and preserve their human dignity. To treat a person with disrespect is to attack their human dignity.

If we want to bring out respectful children, we must first be respectful parents, teachers and care givers.

Children are our mirrors. they reflect back to us everything we say and do.
95% of everything our children learn, they learn from what is modeled for them.
Only 5% of all they learn is from direct instruction.
We are role models for our children.
What we speak is what we teach.
Children record every word we ever say to them or in front of them.
The language children grow up hearing is the language they will speak.

How can you show respect to your child?
  • Be positive. Don't embarrass, insult or make fun of your child. Compliment him or her.
  • Be honest. If you do something wrong, admit it and apologize.
  • Be trusting. Let your child makes choices and take responsibility.
  • Be reliable. Keep promises that you make. Show your child that you mean what you say.
  • Be fair. Listen to your child's side of the story before reaching a conclusion.
  • Be polite. Use 'please' and 'thank you.' Knock before entering your child's room.
  • Be a good listener.
  • Give your child your full attention.

More Respect Tactics

When you set rules at home, explain to your child why the rule is important. For example, if you have a rule that says 'No taking of dinner in front of the TV,' do explain that this is because dinner time is the time for everyone to get together, catch up on what has happened during the talk, to talk and to show care and love for one another in the family.

• Teach your children to respect themselves. Self-respect is one of the most important forms of respect. Once we respect ourselves, it is easier to respect others.

• Help them set and achieve goals. Their self-respect will skyrocket when they see themselves achieving those goals.

• Encourage honesty and integrity. Let your children know that they may be able to fool some people, but they can't fool themselves. There is no pride in stealing, cheating or lying.

• Your opinion means a lot to your children. If you believe your children can succeed, they will believe they can as well. Build their independence. Give them responsibilities as soon as they can handle them.

• Most importantly, show love! Say "I Love You" often, and give plenty of hugs and kisses. If your child makes a mistake, remind them that they are still loved.

WINNER NEED NOT NOT EXPLAIN

THE WINNER NEED NOT TO EXPLAIN THE THINGS HOW HE WON,
BUT HE MAY SHARE THE WISDOM HOW NOT TO LOOSE.
BECAUSE USUALLY,THE LOOSER NEVER ALLOWED/
HAVE A CHANCE TO SHARE HIS FAILURE.
THE FAILURE IS ALWAYS A FEEDBACK TO BECOME A WINNER.

RELEASE STRESS THROUGH YOGA


Yoga
Improve your stress
Management and relaxation skills

Chronic stress can lead to a variety of health and emotional problems. Yoga is an effective method to reduce stress and anxiety. See how to get started.

Your kids are demanding the latest video game, your boss wants that report done yesterday, and your partner wants to know what's for dinner. Stress and anxiety are everywhere. If they're getting the best of you, you might want to make like a downward-facing dog or a cobra and try yoga.

Yoga's series of postures
— sometimes named for mammals, fish or reptiles
— and controlled breathing exercises have become a popular means of stress management and relaxation.

Today, yoga classes teaching the art of breathing, meditation and posing are offered nearly everywhere — from trendy health clubs in big cities to community education classes in small towns. If you're looking for more do-it-yourself techniques for a calmer, more peaceful attitude, see how to get started with yoga.

Understanding yoga /
LEARN MORE GO HERE:- http://yogaacharya.blogspot.com/
Yoga Pose
The ultimate goal of yoga is to reach complete peacefulness of body and mind, helping you relax and manage stress and anxiety. Traditional yoga philosophy requires that students adhere to this mission through behavior, diet and meditation. But if you're simply looking for better stress management and not an entire lifestyle change, yoga can still help.

Yoga has many styles, forms and intensities. But hatha yoga, in particular, may be a good choice for stress management. This style of yoga is designed to encourage a calmer mind, along with improved flexibility.

Beginning with hatha yoga
There are several versions of hatha yoga, too. Which version you choose depends on your personal preferences. But all varieties of hatha yoga include two basic components — poses and breathing. Coordination of mind, body and breathing through hatha yoga can improve physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.

Poses
Yoga is suitable for people of all abilities. In a typical hatha yoga class, you may learn anywhere from 10 to 30 poses. Poses range from the easier corpse pose, which involves lying on the floor while completely relaxed, to the most difficult poses that take years of practice to master.

Regardless of which type of yoga you practice, you don't have to do every pose your instructor demonstrates. If a pose is uncomfortable or you can't hold it as long as the instructor requests, don't do it. Good instructors will understand and encourage you not to exceed your personal limits. Spend time sitting quietly, breathing deeply until your instructor moves the class on to another pose that's more comfortable for you.

Breathing
Controlling your breathing is an important part of yoga. In yoga, breath signifies your vital energy. Yoga teaches that controlling your breathing can help you control your body and gain control of your mind — reining in thoughts that may otherwise hamper stress management and relaxation.

Through yoga, you learn to control your breathing by paying attention to it. Your instructor might ask you to take deep, loud breaths as you concentrate on your breathing. Other breathing techniques involve paying attention to your breath as it moves into your body and fills your lungs, or alternately breathing through one nostril.

Gaining stress relief and other health benefits from yoga
Yoga offers a good tool for stress management and relaxation.
Left unchecked, stress can lead to a variety of health problems, including headache, insomnia, back pain, burnout, weight gain, anger and substance abuse. Yoga, with its quiet, precise movements can draw your focus away from your busy, chaotic day and more on the calming moment as you move your body through poses that require balance and concentration.
But the benefits of yoga surpass stress relief.

Other health benefits of yoga may include:
Increased flexibility.
As you learn and refine new poses
— such as touching your toes
— you'll find that each time you practice, you can reach a little farther.
Increased range of motion means you're less likely to injure yourself in other physical endeavors or in your daily activities.

Management of chronic health conditions.
The breathing and relaxation methods used in yoga might help you if you have asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, depression, low back pain, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis of the knees or memory problems.

Yoga can also be helpful when combined with other treatments for heart disease and high blood pressure. Yoga, when combined with a vegetarian diet, aerobic exercise and medication, has reduced cardiovascular disease rates and blood pressure levels. However, yoga is not a substitute for traditional medical care and treatment.

Weight loss.
If you're overweight, yoga may help you make the healthy lifestyle changes necessary to drop those extra pounds.

Balance.
Yoga classes tailored for older adults can help them stay steady on their feet and avoid falls and hip fractures.

Coping with cancer.
People with cancer and their caregivers who practice yoga may improve their quality of life and sleep better at night.
Alzheimer's caregiver stress and fatigue.
Yoga practice may help family caregivers by boosting their mood and improving their ability to cope and manage stress.
While you shouldn't expect yoga to cure you, it can help some health conditions when combined with treatment recommended by your doctor. And if you already enjoy good health, yoga can be an enjoyable supplement to your regular exercise routine.

TEACHING RESPECT TO YOUR CHILD

Teaching Your Child About Respect


One of the most important things parents
can teach their children is respect.
And respect is not the same as obedience. Children might obey because they are afraid. However if they respect you, they will obey because they know that you have their best interest at heart.

The best way to teach respect is to show respect. When our children
experience respect, they know what it feels like and begin to
understand how important it is.

Respect is an attitude. Being respectful helps a child not only
succeed in school but also later in life. If children don't have respect
for peers, authority, or themselves, it's almost impossible for them
to succeed. A respectful child takes care of belongings and
responsibilities,and a respectful child gets along with others.

Although schools teach children about respect, parents play a significant
role and have the most influence on molding their children to become
respectful individuals. Until children show respect at home,
it's unlikely they will show it outside the home.

THE CHILD MEDICAL GENIUS - AKRIT JASWAL

'AKRIT JASWAL WITH OPRAH WINFREY SHOW'
PICTURES 1) AKRIT JASWAL WITH OPRAH WINFREY 2) AKRIT JASWAL
AKRIT JASWAL

Years ago, footage emerged from a remote village in India.
The video shows a young girl receiving surgery to separate her fingers, which were badly burned and fused together.

Why did this operation make headlines around theworld ?
The surgery was performed by a 7-year-old boy named 'Akrit Jaswal.'

Now he is around 14 years old, Akrit has an IQ of 146 and is considered the smartest person of his age in India- a country of more than a billion people.

Before Akrit could even speak, his parents say they knew he was special.
"He learned very fast," says Raksha, Akrit's mother. "After learning the alphabet, we started to teach him joining of words, and he started writingas well.

He was two."At an age when most children are learning their ABC's, Akrit was reading Shakespeare and assembling a library of medical text books.

When he was 5 years old, he enrolled in school. One year later, Akrit was teaching English and Math classes.

Akrit developed a passion for Science and Anatomy at an early age. Doctors at local hospitals took notice and started allowing him to observe surgeries when he was 6 years old. Inspired by what he saw, Akrit read everything he could on the topic.

When an impoverished family heard about this amazing abilities, they asked if he would operate on their daughter for free. Her surgery was a success.After the surgery, Akrit was hailed as a medical genius in India. Neighbors and strangers flocked to him for advice and treatment.

At age 11, Akrit was admitted to Punjab University. He's the youngest student ever to attend an Indian university.

That same year, he was also invited to London's famed Imperial College to exchange ideas with scientists on the cutting edge of medical research.
Akrit says he has millions of medical ideas, but he's currently focused on developing a cure for cancer. "I've developed a concept called 'oral genetherapy' on the basis of my research and my theories," he says. "I'm quite dedicated towards working on this mechanism.

"Growing up, Akrit says he used to see cancer patients lying on the side ofthe road because they couldn't afford treatment or hospitals had no space for them. Now, he wants to use his intellect to ease their suffering." [I've been] going to hospitals since the age of 6, so I have seen first hand people suffering from pain," he says. "I get very sad, and so that's the main motive of my passion about medicine, my passion about cancer.

"Currently, Akrit is working toward a bachelor's degrees in zoology, botany and chemistry. Some day, he hopes to continue his studies at Harvard University.
TO MY VIEW HE IS NOT JUST A GENIUS,HE IS A MAN OF COMPASSION LIKE BUDDHA.He is very much keen of the people around him who suffers from the deadly disease called cancer.His empathy gone to the extreme,that only made him to dedicate his life to find a medicine to End/Eradicate this disease.
I heartfully wish him on behalf of the 'IRM" and also invite all of you to bless him for his overall prosperty.

TENSION - RELAXATION EXERSISES





What happens when we are under tension?
When we are under physical threat the body naturally tenses up certain muscles in order to protect itself. It basically hunches and curls up into a ball to protect vulnerable areas and expose the better-protected ones.

These are the muscles that tense up under stress:
- We tend to frown- We tend to clench our jaws
- Our shoulders tend to hunch up
- Our chest tends to close
- Our arms tend to come into our sides
- Our hands tend to bunch into fists
- Our legs tend to close
- Our knees tend to be drawn up
- Our feet tend to be drawn up, so our feet are pointing upwards

So how do we relax these muscles?
In order to relax the muscles that tense up under stress we need to move
the affected joints in the opposite direction to the natural danger response.

Here are some relaxation exercises to release tension:-
1. Try to move your forehead or hairline backwards over the top of your head
- the opposite of a frown. It may help to imagine your hand stroking backwards from your forehead over the top of your head and down to the back of your neck
- but don't actually do the stoking.
2. Open your mouth as wide as you can, hold and release.
3. Push your shoulders down and back, hold and release.
4. Stretch your arms up and link your hands above you head.
5. Open your hands as wide as you possibly can, hold and release.
6. Lie on your back and roll your knees outwards.
No need for a big movement on this one
- a few millimeters is all that's needed to relax your inner thigh muscles.
7. Straighten your knees so that your hip is opened out and stretched.
8. Point your toes downwards as far as you can. Hold and release.

The ideal way to start learning these exercises is to lie flat on your back.
Once you have got the hang of it you can do them at any time: sitting at your desk,
waiting in a queue, waiting at a stoplight. Wherever you have a few moments to wait.

TO KNOW MORE ABOUT STRESS MANAGEMENT MAIL ME,
I CAN SEND YOU MY E-BOOK ON STRESS.

ALTERNATIVE THINKING



A jobless man applied for the position of “office boy” at Microsoft.
The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.

“You are employed.” He said.” Give me your e-mail address and I’ll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.”

The man replied “But I don’t have a computer, neither an email.”
I’m sorry”, said the HR manager, “If you don’t have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn’t exist, cannot have the job.”

The man left with no hope at all. He didn’t know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tommato crate. He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital.

He repeated the Operation three times, and returned home with $60.
The man realized that he can survive by this Way, and started to go everyday earlier, and return late.

Thus, his money doubled or tripled every day. Shortly, he bought a cart, then a truck, then he had his own fleet of delivery vehicles.
5 years later , the man is one of the biggest food retailers in the US .

He started to plan his family’s future, and decided to have a life insurance.
He called an insurance broker, and chose a protection plan. When the conversation was concluded, the broker asked him his email. The man replied,
“I don’t have an email”.

The broker answered curiously, “You don’t have an email, and yet have succeeded to build an empire. Can you imagine what you could have been if you had
an email ?”
The man thought for a while and replied,
“Yes, I would have be an office boy at Microsoft!”


Moral of the story:
M1 - Internet is not the solution to your life.
M2 - If you don’t have internet, and work hard, you can be a millionaire.
Have a great day!


Pls Note: - Do not forward this email to me back, I’m closing all my email addresses & going to sell tomatoes!!!Smiling after reading is not mandatory !

THE BRAIN AND MEDITATION


The Brain and Meditation
by Adithya K.


The brain is essential to human life, and when the brain dies, the entire physical body dies with it. Even in deep sleep the brain is active and aware, and able to direct functions as and when necessary. For example, the brain may create a fearful dream to wake you up if your body is threatened by danger, such as a lack of oxygen due to a difficulty in breathing. The central function of the human brain is awareness. Awareness is required to know things like boundaries, size, limits, identifications, and the sense of self and the sense of the other. Awareness itself has no intrinsic size, boundary limits, or any other attributes of its own. Awareness is required to know all attributes, but awareness itself can be nothing but just plain awareness. That is the pure awareness of meditation.

The sense of time, the beginning and the end, the birth and the death, requires memory. Awareness always precedes memory. Awareness serves as the background and base for memory, but memory cannot have any trace of the beginning or end of awareness. This makes awareness feel eternal no matter what the reality.

We experience everything in our brain: sound, vision, smell, taste, touch, temperature, pleasure, pain, reason, emotion. Everything we feel and see are signals presented inside the brain, from neuron to neuron, in a web of billions of brain cells. When you look at images of distant stars and galaxies, those pictures are formed inside us, not outside of us. When you realign your focus on the background of consciousness during meditation, you clearly see that all outside images are really inside images.

The sensation *I am body* is itself an effort of the brain. Brain is our intimate personal reality, not the body. The brain is able to conjure up the idea of the body by repeated practice and focus. The brain can easily convince itself of being anything it wants. After all, there is no one else inside you to question it. The brain is the one that says “I am this!,” as well as being the final arbitrator of its own validity.

Some may focus on a flower and convince themselves that they have experienced "flower consciousness." Others go further and convince themselves that they are a great savior, saint, or a heroic world leader. Given enough focus and practice, the brain can convince itself of anything, because the brain is the final judge and jury of our perception of reality. Thus, we all live in different brain worlds of our own creation. When those brain worlds collide, conflict and wars arise.

The feeling of solidity of the body is generated by the brain constantly sending and receiving signals to and from different organs. The more frequent and stronger the signals, the more solid the body feels. Mediation is a way to relax the brain and quiet down its constant communication with the body and reduce the frequency of thoughts. As the brain relaxes and creates less activity and noise, the feeling *I am the body* starts to dissolve.

Scientists now understand through functional magnetic resonance imaging scans (fMRI scans) that the part of the brain which gives us a sense of location in time and space is less active during intense meditation. With no sense of location, consciousness loses its boundaries and subjectively feels infinite and timeless. The body may seem to completely disappear, leaving only pure consciousness in its place. That is death of the 'I.' During deep dreamless sleep, the same dissolution of the 'I' happens, but there is no consciousness to experience it.

The feeling of clutter we often feel inside ourselves is the brain working too hard, thinking too many thoughts. The pragmatic working brain requires concentration on the utilitarian tasks of life. In meditation, peace and relaxation rule, and the brain doing nothing expands its sense of being into the whole universe. Only the core, essential life saving functions of the brain continue during the deepest meditation.

Stress is the brain’s attempt to drive the body from one situation to another desired situation through the pathway of time. Thus, if you end desire, the acceptance of *what is* brings an end to stress and creates the sensation of eternal timelessness. When the brain uproots its self-created need to do work, there is total relaxation and peace. Finally, the brain is at ease and resting in its essential being.

Contentment is happiness. Joy is the content of the brain full of energy. Oneness and love come when the brain stops continuously promoting the sensation of *I am this.* Bliss flows automatically when the brain loses any narrow sense of self-identification. What is left is billions of neurons flowering energy in the brain's primordial form. When the brain perceives no feelings of subject and object, the brain experiences an indescribable fullness and emptiness. Devoid of object, yet full of energy, the brain goes deeper than the sensation of *I am.* There is no what, no which, no how, and no where. As Hindus have said, "not this, not that."

Some may renounce the ordinary life and sacrifice job, society, and everything that requires effort to experience the depths of meditation. Reclusive monks and sadhus may prefer to sit in caves rather than make the brain work more than what they feel is necessary. Those who go deep in meditation often proclaim to the world that they are "enlightened," but that enlightenment is simply a brain gifted with the ability to consciously remain at rest. Mediation then becomes their default state rather than a practice and effort. The identity dissolution of deep sleep now pervades all their waking hours. Relaxation, peace, and joy are the natural rewards of continuous meditation.

The brain stresses and pushes the body and society to achieve its goals. The brain must constantly remember its goals in order to know what action is needed to accomplish its agenda through the pathway of time. The brain may resent the present moment, the *what is now,* because it has not yet achieved its victory which is different from reality in its present form. When desire drops, so does the goal, the struggle, the conflict, and the dissatisfaction. With no more fighting against the *what is now,* there is no expectation from life and no agenda. This ends what Siddhartha Gautama called "dukkha." Even after all of this, however, the brain is still just a brain.

Adithya K.

* Dukkha (Pa li; Sanskrit: du? kha) roughly corresponds to sorrow, suffering, affliction, pain, anxiety, dissatisfaction, discomfort, anguish, stress, misery, and aversion.

SHAKUMATALA DEVI IS A GENIUS IN MATHEMATICS


THE GENIUS IS HERE


Shakunatala Devi is a well-known mathematical genius and calculating progidy from India. She has been nicknamed 'Human Computer' because of her extraordinary talent and skill in solving complex mathematical problems without any mechanical aid. Shakuntala Devi was born on 4th November, 1939 in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. Shakuntala's father was a circus artiste and it was he who introduced Shakuntala to the world of mathematics, through card tricks. Shakuntala's amazing memory power was tapped, which then led her to develop an extraordinary love for numbers at the tender age of three.Gradually, over the years, Shakuntala's memorizing and calculating skills were strengthened, whilst she simultaneously became an expert in complex mental arithmetic.
Beginning at the University of Mysore and the Annamalai University, Shakuntala's public displays of her extraordinary abilities and talents even spread to institutions worldwide, bewildering the crowded gathering of students and professors alike. In her time, older calculating prodigies like Truman Henry Safford were also present, yet Shakuntala started displaying her talents from a very young age.With her brilliant mind, Shakuntala Devi was adept at solving arithmetical problems, including functions of addition, multiplication, division, calculating square and cube roots, along with complex algorithms and Vedic Maths. She could even state the day of the week of any given date in the last century in a jiffy. Shakuntala could even outdo some of the fastest available computers of that period.
Amongst her numerous feats, the most outstanding ones that fetched her name in the 1995 Guinness Book of World Records are:
In January 1977, at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, Shakuntala Devi extracted the 23rd root of a 201-digit number, at the fifty-second mark, with the correct answer being '546372891'. She had beaten the then fastest computer, UNIVAC's time of 62 seconds, and 13,000 instructions.

On 18th June, 1980, Shakuntala Devi demonstrated the multiplication of two 13-digit numbers: '7,686,369,774,870 x 2,465,099,745,779', picked randomly by the Computer Department of Imperial College, London. She produced the correct answer of '18,947,668,177,995,426,462,773,730', in just 28 seconds.

Shakuntala could find the cube root of 332 812 557 in under a minute.

Today Shakunatala Devi is an accomplished mathematician whose interests also include the mystic field of Astrology. While setting up of several mathematics research centers are her future plans, Shakuntala Devi has also written numerous books, some of which are - Puzzles to Puzzle You, Fun with Numbers, Astrology for you and Math ablity.

ADDRESSING STUDENTS PROBLEMS


ON BEHALF OF 'THE IRM' AND FEW OTHER CORPORATES, (CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY) I HAVE BEEN ADDRESSING TO MANY UNIVERSITY'S,COLLEGE'S AND SCHOOL'S STUDENTS FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS.THE PRIME MOTIVE/IDEA BEHIND IS, TO INCULCATE THE RIGHT SPIRIT AND CULTURE AMONG THESE STUDENTS. WHICH ALSO INCLUDES MORAL VALUES, ENHANCING LEARNING SKILLS,DICIPILINE,GOAL SETTINGS, MIND AND ATTITUDE, MEMORY SKILL, MEDITATION,YOGA, OVERCOMING EXAM FEAR AND SO ON. HERE, I AM VERY MUCH FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO INTEREACT WITH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS AROUND THE NATION. THIS HELPED ME TO KNOW MANY FACTS ABOUT OUR TODAY'S STUDENT COMMUNITY AND THEIR NEED.

IN CONNECTION WITH THE ABOVE POINT, I HAVE FOUND MANY STUDENTS ARE LACKING FEW THINGS,WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO ADDRESS AND HOPING THIS WILL HELP/MOTIVATE THEM TO OVER COME THEIR LACKINGS.

AMONG MANY LACKINGS, I HERE ,LIKE TO POINT OUT A FEW PERSPECTIVES IN A VERY BRIEF WAY WITH FACTS BEHIND, TO THEIR LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING.
OUR CHILDREN ARE GOING TO DECIDE OUR FUTURE WORLD. AS A GROWN UP ELDERS, IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO THROW A RIGHT SEED OF THOUGHTS UNTO THIS YOUNG MINDS AND EXTEND OUR HEART TO PROVIDE THEM ALL SUPPORTS THEY NEEDED TIME TO TIME. MANY TIMES 'A WORD' WITH GREAT CAMPASSION AND LOVE CAN CHANGE THEIR WHOLE BEINGS AND LEAD THEM 'FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT.'

TEN- Biggest Brain Damaging Habits

1. No Breakfast
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain "causing brain degeneration".

2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.Also may causes obesity.

3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.so let us intereact and react.

EGO - THE PSEUDO AFFFAIR


BIRD DOG AND A DUCK HUNTER
An avid duck hunter was in the market for Buying a new bird dog.

His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his findings, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him.

He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, a pessimist by nature, and invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. They fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet. The friend saw everything but did not say a single word.

On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog ?

The friend said back : - "I sure did," responded his friend. "The dog can't swim".

Moral:
1. Showing off brings nothing but Pride & Ego and at times nose cut like above.
2.many people speak out - of their ego;not from the heart.
3.Identify Your Pseudo Conditinings which stops all your growth and give it up right now.

THE NEED OF TODAY


THE NEED OF TODAY’S WORLD

One of the most excellent mechanisms in our world is our mind Even our modern science is unable to describe or define the whole of our mind, they all are defined many perspectives of our mind but not yet, as a total of it, or as a whole of our mind. They all reached to some extent, beyond a point they are unable to go and define the total. Because the mind is such, to understand or to define, It is because no one is properly taped the potentiality of our mind, not only that, if one need to understand the mind, he/she has to use their mind, and hence this understanding itself is limited, and if, really one want to know means, one has to go beyond one step forward or higher than one’s own mind, so that you can see your mind from outside as a outsider, that may lead you to focus and understand your mind completely. If, one realized all the truth about one’s own mind, and then only at least he or she is able to explain a bit or whole about it. We, so called Homo sapiens reached or trying to reach everywhere, the moon, the mars and trying to reach many other far away planets in the cosmos and to some extent we are capable of reaching the far and beyond, But as far as our own mind is concerned, it is still seems to be untouched or unreachable to the whole. So that motivates us to study more about our own mind. With this inspiration We need to study more and more about our mind, it is very much indeed of our today’s world, once we properly understood our own potentiality of our own mind, than what ever we study or learn will have more quality and meaning in it, and whatever we do with that understanding will pulsate with our life energy. We have to touch and reach or taping the overall capacity of our own mind. Then the individual realization will come latter on, but the study or the more study about our mind in all perspectives is urgently needed. Let it be - psychological, philosophical, and spiritual, sceintifical, social, historical, cultural, religious, let it be anything, each and every aspects is, as important as the mind is concerned.

CREATIVITY


"A man's dreams are an index to his greatness. "
- Zadok Rabinwitz


Creativity

In his book about Creativity, "A Whack on the Side of the Head", Roger von Oech tells us about a major oil company's concern with the lack of creativity among some of its research and development people. To deal with the problem, top management brought in a team of psychologists to determine the difference between the creative R & D people and the less-creative ones. The hope was that their findings would stimulate the less-creative people.


The psychologists asked the scientists all kinds of questions. They asked about educational backgrounds, about the environment in which their favorite colors were. After three months, the psychologists found that the biggest difference between the two groups was that the creative people thought they were creative and the less-creative people did not. As a consequence, those who thought they were creative acted like it. They ignored old methods and hatched new ideas. The less-creative people did things as they had always been done.


Some "I'm not creative" people stifle themselves because they think creativity belongs only to people like Beethoven, Einstein, and Shakespeare. These are some of the superluminaries of the creative world, but by and large, these people didn't get their big ideas out of the blue.


On the contrary, most of their big ideas came from paying attention to their small ideas, playing with them, and making them big ideas.One of the major factors that differentiates creative people from less-creative people is that creative people pay attention to their small ideas. They know that a small idea can lead to a big breakthrough, and they believe that they are capable of making it happen.

ART OF MANAGING


Excellent Manager

An excellent manager taps into talents and resources in order to support and bring out the best in others. An outstanding manager evokes possibility in others.
1. Creativity
Creativity is what separates competence from excellence. Creativity is the spark that propels projects forward and that captures peoples' attention. Creativity is the ingredient that pulls the different pieces together into a cohesive whole, adding zest and appeal in the process.
2. Structure
The context and structure we work within always have a set of parameters, limitations and guidelines. A stellar manager knows how to work within the structure and not let the structure impinge upon the process or the project. Know the structure intimately, so as to guide others to effectively work within the given parameters. Do this to expand beyond the boundaries.
3. Intuition
Intuition is the capacity of knowing without the use of rational processes; it's the cornerstone of emotional intelligence. People with keen insight are often able to sense what others are feeling and thinking; consequently, they're able to respond perfectly to another through their *deeper understanding. * The stronger one's intuition, the stronger manager one will be.
4. Knowledge
A thorough knowledge base is essential. The knowledge base must be so ingrained and integrated into their being that they become *transparent, * focusing on the employee and what s/he needs to learn, versus focusing on the knowledge base. The excellent manager lives from a knowledge base, without having to draw attention to it.
5. Commitment
A manager is committed to the success of the project and of all team members. S/he holds the vision for the collective team and moves the team closer to the end result. It's the manager's commitment that pulls the team forward during trying times.
6. Being Human
Employees value leaders who are human and who don't hide behind their authority. The best leaders are those who aren't afraid to be themselves. Managers who respect and connect with others on a human level inspire great loyalty.
7. Versatility
Flexibility and versatility are valuable qualities in a manager. Beneath the flexibility and versatility is an ability to be both non-reactive and not attached to how things have to be. Versatility implies an openness this openness allows the leader to quickly *change on a dime* when necessary. Flexibility and versatility are the pathways to speedy responsiveness.
8. Lightness
A stellar manager doesn't just produce outstanding results; s/he has fun in the process! Lightness doesn't impede results but rather, helps to move the team forward. Lightness complements the seriousness of the task at hand as well as the resolve of the team, therefore contributing to strong team results and retention.
9. Discipline/ Focus
Discipline is the ability to choose and live from what one pays attention to. Discipline as 'self-mastery' can be exhilarating! Role model the ability to live from your intention consistently and you'll role model an important leadership quality.
10. Big Picture, Small Actions
Excellent managers see the big picture concurrent with managing the details. Small actions lead to the big picture; the excellent manager is skillful at doing both: think big while also paying attention to the details.
(THINK GLOBALLY AND ACT LOCALLY)

ART OF COMMUNICATION


Know the Power of Punctuation

An English professor wrote the following words on the chalkboard:
"A woman without her man is nothing"
He then asked his students to punctuate it correctly.

All of the males in the class wrote:
"A woman, without her man, is nothing."

All the females in the class wrote:
"A woman: without her, man is nothing."

COMMUNICATION IS JUST AN ART.

A SMALL COMMA IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT. ONE CAN NOT IGNORE IT.THE EXPRESSIONS ARE VARY AS PER THE INDIVIDUALS.EACH INDIVIDUAL AMONG US IS UNIQUE IN THEIR OWN WAY,THEIR VIEW,ATTITUDE,VISION ARE DIFFERENT FROM ONE ANOTHER.WHEN ONE FAILS IN COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER, WHAT HE/SHE REALLY NEED TO CONVEY TO THE OTHER PERSON NEED TO FIT HIMSELF/HERSELF INTO THE ART OF COMMUNICATION.

THE ART OF COMMUNICATION IS HOW TO 'KISS'.

(NOTE:- KISS- Keep It Simple and Short )

GOLDEN RULES FOR CAREER SUCCESS

Golden Rules for Career Success
Richard Moran working as a business consultant all over the world, have discovered some basic career-related rules that everyone should know-but many don't.

· Business is made up of ambiguous victories and nebulous defeats.Claim them all as victories.
· Keep track of what you do; someone is sure to ask.
· Be comfortable around managers, or learn to fake it.
· Never bring your boss a problem without some solution.
· You are getting paid to think, not to whine.
· Long hours don't mean anything; results count, not effort.
· Write down ideas; they get lost, like good pens.
· Always arrive at work 30 minutes before your boss.
· Help other people network for jobs. You never know when your turn will come.
· Don't take days off sick-unless you are.
· Assume no one can/will keep a secret.
· Know when you do your best-morning, night, under pressure, relaxed; schedule and prioritize your work accordingly.
· Treat everyone who works in the organization with respect and dignity, whether it be the cleaner or the managing director. Don't ever be patronizing.
· Never appear stressed in front of a client, a customer or your boss. Take a deep breath and ask yourself: In the course of human events, how important is this?
· If you get the entrepreneurial urge, visit someone who has his own business. It may cure you.
· Acknowledging someone else's contribution will repay you doubly.
· Career planning is an oxymoron. The most exciting opportunities tend to be unplanned.
· Always choose to do what you'll remember ten years from now.
· The size of your office is not as important as the size of your pay cheque.
· Understand what finished work looks like and deliver your work only when it is finished.
· The person who spends all of his or her time is not hard-working; he or she is boring.
· Know how to write business letters-including thank-you notes as well as proposals.
· Never confuse a memo with reality. Most memos from the top are political fantasy..
· Eliminate guilt. Don't fiddle expenses, taxes or benefits, and don't cheat colleagues.
· Reorganizations mean that someone will lose his or her job.Get on the committee that will make the recommendations.
· Job security does not exist. Always have an answer to the question, "What would I do if I lost my job tomorrow?"
· Go to the company Christmas party. But Don't get drunk at the company party.
· Avoid working at weekends. Work longer during the week if you have to.
· The most successful people in business are interesting.
· Sometimes you'll be on a winning streak and everything will click; take maximum advantage. When the opposite is true, hold steady and wait it out.
· Never in your life say, "It's not my job."
· Be loyal to your career, your interests and yourself.
· Understand the skills and abilities that set you apart. Use them whenever you have an opportunity.
· People remember the end of the project. As they say in boxing,
"Always finish stronger than you start."

BRAIN EXERCISES- NEUROBICS


Brain Exercises

Get Smarter: Do These Brain Exercises.
It's called neurobics.
Engage your senses in a novel way and you'll get smarter.
Just like you need to exercise your muscles to keep your body in shape, you need to exercise your brain to keep your mind sharp.
One way to do this is a technique called neurobics-a play on the word aerobics-that uses one or more of your five senses in novel and unconventional ways that are meant to engage your attention and add an unexpected element to a routine activity, reports HealthDayNews.
The result?
Brain cells become more active and stimulated, and it actually creates new connections in areas of the brain that process sensory input. Put simply, your brain gets recharged.
  • Duke University researchers say if you do these simple-but somewhat weird-exercises regularly, you'll keep your brain nimble and ready for new challenges.
HealthDayNews describes five neurobics exercises:

· Use your non-dominant hand as you go through your morning rituals, such as combing or styling your hair, getting dressed, brushing your teeth, and making your breakfast.
· Close your eyes as you shower and use your sense of touch to locate your soap and wash yourself. Your brain must then rely on your other four senses to complete the task.
· Turn the pictures on your desk or shelves upside down.
· Experience new sights and sounds by going to a new ethnic or farmer's market or bakery.
· When you travel abroad, immerse yourself completely in unfamiliar surroundings. For example, go to a small town where no one speaks your language, try new foods, and stay in a local bed-and-breakfast.
· Other neurobics activities you can do that break up your mental routine include rearranging your living, office, or desk space or take a different route to work or the mall.

CORPUS CALLOSUM

Corpus Callosum

The corpus callosum is the part of the brain the connects the left and right hemispheres of the cerebral cortex.
Most of the communication between the two halves of the brain is carried over the corpus callosum. Some studies have shown that women have more fibers in the posterior portion of the corpus callosum. This added ability for cross-talk within the brain may account for the tendency for women to be more intuitive and better multitaskers. This interconnect is also very important for reading. This may be why dyslexia is five times more common in men versus women.
