Description : New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin shifts his keen insights from your brain on music to your brain in a sea of details. The information age is drowning us with an unprecedented deluge of data. At the same time, we’re expected to make more—and faster—decisions about our lives than ever before. No wonder, then, that the average American reports frequently losing car keys or reading glasses, missing appointments, and feeling worn out by the effort required just to keep up. But somehow some people become quite accomplished at managing information flow. In The Organized Mind, Daniel J. Levitin, PhD, uses the latest brain science to demonstrate how those people excel—and how readers can use their methods to regain a sense of mastery over the way they organize their homes, workplaces, and time. With lively, entertaining chapters on everything from the kitchen junk drawer to health care to executive office workflow, Levitin reveals how new research into the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory can be applied to the challenges of our daily lives. This Is Your Brain on Music showed how to better play and appreciate music through an understanding of how the brain works. The Organized Mind shows how to navigate the churning flood of information in the twenty-first century with the same neuroscientific perspective.
Description : Organized Mind & Organized Home: Minimalism Organization Hacks Turn Clutter Into Declutter Organization In The Home The goal of this book is to show you the 9 top ways that you could apply today in order to lead a healthier lifestyle and become more effective and successful with everything that you are doing. This book is going to guide you through the 9 best ways to declutter your home, workplace, and life. This decluttering system is going to help achieve this goal. Once you have been able to apply this system, you are automatically going to feel happier and more productive. Once you have achieved these goals, you are going to be able to lead a healthier lifestyle, too. But let's first talk about some things that you need to be aware first in order to appreciate this system even more. I assume that your home is cluttered. Maybe you just want to help out a loved one or friend and this is why you bought this book. If you are wondering how to clear your cluttered home and life then you should be aware of the following scary things that are associated with clutter because clutter might even have some terrible health risks that you might not even be aware of. Clutter leads to negative energy, and at the same time clutter hinders the positive energy from flowing. This is the reason why you will feel depressed, not energized and tired while you are present in a cluttered environment or room. A disorganized or a confused house might not only make you unproductive, frustrated, not effective and without the ability to taking any action, but scientists have actually proven that declutter is a very unhealthy state to move in. You probably have experienced the feeling yourself. A cluttered home or work space leads to frustration that keeps building up. It is not a pleasant feeling to look for an item that you absolutely can not find anymore. Our lives are made infinitely more complicated and stressful by our ability to pile things up that we really do not need.
Description : This beginning Yoga poses compilation package includes 2 Volumes in one. It is for everyone who is a beginning Yoga student and who wants to get started with Yoga the proper way. Hi, this is Juliana Baldec and my sister Alecandra Baldec empowered me to get into the fascinating world of Yoga. She inspired me and encouraged me not only to tap into the unlimited benefits of Yoga which helped me get rid of my breathing and Asthma problems, but she also inspired me to write this Yoga poses book that includes all the Yoga poses that I have been doing on a daily basis for around 3 months now. Not only did I beat Asthma by applying these Yoga poses on a daily basis, but I also turned into a much fitter, happier, healthier and more relaxed person. Alecandra (the productivity and time management whizz) also had the genius idea to create this compilation of beginning Yoga poses for beginning Yoga students who are looking for the most basic Yoga poses that they can get started with immediately without having to spend a forune on Yoga teachers. We put our two beginning Yoga position guides together into one comprehensive compilation for beginning Yoga students to learn from and to enjoy. Both, her and my book talk about beginning Yoga poses in a completely different way and perspective because I am a beginning Yoga student myself and I am talking about my own experiences that I have made with Yoga over the past 3 months and she is a certified Yoga instructor and has lots of experience and knows about every aspect of Yoga. She also has lots of experience with her own students and knows exactly what kind of questions and problems a beginning Yoga student is faced with. Here is what you will get in my beginning Yoga poses guide: "11 Yoga Poses For Beginners You Wish You Knew" This compilation is for anybody who is looking to get into Yoga in an effortless way and it is perfect for anyone who is looking to become more relaxed, stress free, more energized...

Description : Previously Published as A Field Guide to Lies We’re surrounded by fringe theories, fake news, and pseudo-facts. These lies are getting repeated. New York Times bestselling author Daniel Levitin shows how to disarm these socially devastating inventions and get the American mind back on track. Here are the fundamental lessons in critical thinking that we need to know and share now. Investigating numerical misinformation, Daniel Levitin shows how mishandled statistics and graphs can give a grossly distorted perspective and lead us to terrible decisions. Wordy arguments on the other hand can easily be persuasive as they drift away from the facts in an appealing yet misguided way. The steps we can take to better evaluate news, advertisements, and reports are clearly detailed. Ultimately, Levitin turns to what underlies our ability to determine if something is true or false: the scientific method. He grapples with the limits of what we can and cannot know. Case studies are offered to demonstrate the applications of logical thinking to quite varied settings, spanning courtroom testimony, medical decision making, magic, modern physics, and conspiracy theories. This urgently needed book enables us to avoid the extremes of passive gullibility and cynical rejection. As Levitin attests: Truth matters. A post-truth era is an era of willful irrationality, reversing all the great advances humankind has made. Euphemisms like “fringe theories,” “extreme views,” “alt truth,” and even “fake news” can literally be dangerous. Let's call lies what they are and catch those making them in the act.
