There is a basic neuroscience concept that nerve cells that fire together, wire together. Due to recent findings of neural plasticity—that the ability for the connections in our brains to change and adapt throughout our lives—we now understand that our brains can generate stronger and healthier neural connections based on our mental habits.

One Thing at a Time
We would like to believe that attention is infinite, but it isn’t. That is why multitasking is a misnomer. The brain can focus only on one thing at a time. We take in information sequentially. When we attempt to focus on multiple tasks simultaneously, what actually happens is that we switch back and forth between tasks, paying less attention to both. More

“You seem so... fine,” a woman tells me after my bookstore reading, a stunned look on her face. The girl she’d read about in my memoir got into a car with a stranger at age 8, dropped acid at 12, and got evicted with her family twice before she was 13—and she had all the anger, despair, and attitude to prove it.

Omega Institute The Volkswagen Principle: How to Get What You Want by Pam Grout
How to Get What You Want
The Premise What shows up in our lives is a direct reflection of our inner thoughts and emotions. My friend Linda told me an amazing story about a young woman she once observed at the airport. This poor young thing was struggling with three heavy bags. But worse than the unwieldiness of her baggage was her less-than-positive attitude. With great gusto, she was vocalizing her immense disgust at a lack of help. “Why is the bus taking so long?" she kept shouting. "Where in the hell is that bus? This is completely unacceptable!” More

Setting Up Students and Teachers for Success
Sitting on his bunk bed, locked behind juvenile detention bars, 17-year-old Damon feels his breath softly rising and falling. As another angry thought surfaces, he remembers his mindfulness lesson and notices the tension in his body. He smiles at the passing thought and feels his whole body relax. He notices an inner spaciousness and a sense of freedom that he’s not sure he’s felt before. More
