Organize Your Mind And Your Life Will Follow

By organizing your mind your life will fall into step.

Margaret Moore’s book “Organize Your Mind, Organize Your Life” written with Dr. Paul Hammerness, offers tips to help you to become more organized and more fulfilled.

The connection between disorganized minds and unhealthy habits is compelling. The National Institute of Aging concluded from a recent study that symptoms of a disorganized mind, namely impulsivity, chronic negativity, high stress and multitasking, all correlate with higher weight. For example, adults in the top 10% rating for impulsivity (most impulsive) weighed an average of 24 pounds more than those in the bottom 10% rating for impulsivity.

Whether or not you have an organized mind depends upon your ability to “drive” your attention and keep it focused when you’re under pressure or faced with challenging conditions.

Managing stress, staying focused and knowing when to “put on the brakes” are just a few strategies endorsed to help you to organize your life.

The Risks of Being Left Handed

Left handedness has been a fascination of scientists for centuries.

Curiosity ranged from fear to questions about how the brain works and what is different about left handed brains.

New research explores what might cause left handedness and what, if any health risks may accompany this trait and whether or not the cause is in the genes or in the environment.

Handedness, as the dominance of one hand over the other is called, provides a window into the way our brains are wired, experts say. And it may help shed light on disorders related to brain development, like dyslexia, schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, which are more common in left-handed people.

Other recent research suggests that mixed-handedness—using different hands for daily tasks and not having a dominant one—may be even more strongly linked than left-handedness to ADHD and possibly other conditions.

About 10% of people are left-handed, according to expert estimates. Another 1% of the population is mixed-handed. What causes people not to favor their right hand is only partly due to genetics—even identical twins, who have 100% of the same genes, don’t always share handedness.
