It is interesting to learn about people’s experiences while being “cooped up” at home. Recently, one young man told me that he had started eating at home, avoiding fast food, and had lost 50 pounds in 10 months. He looked great. Then there is CJ who gained 50 pound in 10 months. He did not look so great. Different mindset. Different choices. Different self-talk. Enjoy “The Addictive Palate.”

New Book Series Coming!

Legends of the Wild - 12-part series

Nuisance to Nobility, the first book in the Legends of the Wild series by Taylor and Hudson (coauthors of The Brain on Music), has gone to publishing. Designed for people of all ages—3 to 103—these animal allegories provide easy-to-understand information about brain function, including three sensory systems (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic) and three general types of brains (extroverted, ambiverted, and introverted). 

Examples of high versus low Emotional Intelligence (EQ) skills can be identified through animal interactions that influence relational accord—and, yes, discord. Creatures sometimes reappear in the stories, making it fun to track how their experiences impact not only them but also each other. Some outcomes based on each creature’s behaviors are stellar. Others, not so much. 

The brain likes learning new things. It can also be fun to learn tidbits about these creatures that might be new to you. Specific words relating to each sensory system are used to enhance internal mental picturing and creativity.

Point to Ponder

Whether you think you can or you can’t, you are right. 
—Henry Ford (July 30, 1863-April 7, 1947)

No doubt most people know that Henry Ford was an American industrialist and business magnate, founder of the Ford Motor Company, and chief developer of the assembly line technique of mass production. I found Henry Ford’s comment especially intriguing because in his generation I know of no studies related to mindset and its importance on achieving one’s goals. No brain-imaging equipment had been invented. My guess is that Ford learned this from his own experience. Since the brain can only do what it thinks it can do, when you think you can’t, the brain believes that. When you think you can, the brain believes that and tends to get on board helping you can-do. What do you want to do in life that requires a shift in your mindset and can-do thoughts?
