Outsmarting Human Minds

Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Banaji and research fellow Olivia Kang, developed Outsmarting Human Minds as a way to deliver up-to-date thinking about hidden biases in an engaging way.

Banaji said, “The behavioral sciences give us insights into what gets in the way of reaching out professional goals, of being true to our own deepest values”.  “The science is not new, but its message is still one most people have difficulty grasping and  understanding.”

Kang said, “Everyone wants to know what’s happening in their minds, and they want to know what they can do to make better decisions”. “The science is out there; the challenge is getting it to the public in a way that captures their interest.”

“We want to deliver this information to people in a way that doesn’t make them feel that they’re a bad person if they have these biases. The fact is, we all do. This is about acknowledging that hidden biases are a product of how we’re wired and the culture we live in. And then agreeing that we want to do something about it — that we can use this knowledge to improve the decisions we make in life and at work.”

Choral singing and mind

Choral singing and mind

 


New research points to one reason joining a choir boost mental health.

Bay area is getting more cars and stress. Last few years, bay areas populations increase so, more cars more stress and anxiety develop recently.

The morning commute is getting tough too. Especially when people “Honk”.

I don’t like when people honk, we are not used to. Used to be very rude. We don’t have the habit to honk anybody.

As soon as I listen to my favorite song. It lowers my stress level.

I think joining Choral is a good idea for anybody, it will make their stressful life to simple good life.

points to one reason joining a choir boost mental health. The new research points to one reason joining a choir boost mental health.

The study “supports the existence of a specific ‘choir effect,'” write psychologists Julie Lynch and Charlotte Wilson of Trinity College Dublin. Their research is published in the journal Psychology of Music.

A wealth of academic research demonstrates an empirical link between choral singing and well-being. This study investigated the construct of state mindfulness as a potential generative mechanism by which this link exists. A within-subject design measured levels of state mindfulness in choristers before and after a choir rehearsal. Assessing state mindfulness before and after listening to a piece of music at home acted as the control condition. State mindfulness was assessed by the Mindful State Questionnaire (MSQ) among a sample of 83 adult amateur choristers (65 females, mean age 51.9 years). The development and psychometric properties of the MSQ are described. Paired t-tests revealed significant increases in levels of state mindfulness for both conditions (choir singing; t = 10.82, p < .001, η2 = 0.58; listening to music; t = 4.48, p < .001, η2 = 0.21), however the effect sizes and confidence intervals indicated a far greater effect for the choral singing condition.

According to their research. The research result  include, “I am aware of my feelings without getting lost in them”; “I am finding it easy to concentrate on what I am doing”; and “I am daydreaming, worrying, or otherwise distracted.”

Haleakala national parks

Haleakala national parks

——————————————————–

We visited Haleakala national parks in the month of July. This time when we went to Haleakala national park, the roads were so cloudy we couldn’t see properly.

We drove to the visitor center, it was raining. The visitor center was closed (i always like to go to the visitor center and talk with them, buy stuff ). We decided we are not going to see the upper side of the park, or observatory.

Kids were so skeptical, I told my husband we have already been there before, now I don’t want to go to see its so cloudy. I was so scared.

Some other tourists were going there too, they encourage us, you drove this much, it’s a just little bit more and you can see the sunshine.

I thought how come, my husband told me the upper side of a mountain is too high and clouds are lower than that. He told me, do you know from last time we visited here, very small plants are the upper side of the park.

I told my husband, in very little voice,”ok”.

After few minutes of driving, the sun shows up.
Thanks to the fellow tourists:)

He start driving after few minutes, sun started to show up.:)

 

 

It’s the last phase of a three-year incremental plan to meet national standards for parks with similar visitor amenities.

Spring

Spring



The beginning of spring is not always determined by fixed calendar dates. The  biological indicators the blossoming of a range of plants are different in areas.

“During spring, the axis of the Earth is increasing its tilt relative to the Sun, and the length of daylight rapidly increases for the relevant hemisphere. The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to “spring forth,” giving the season its name. Snow, if a normal part of winter, begins to melt, and streams swell with runoff. Frosts, if a normal part of winter, become less severe. In climates that have no snow and rare frosts, the air and ground temperatures increase more rapidly”.

So in spring season  relax and meditate with relaxing nature and birds sounds. 🙂
