Today I learned about the potential for the medical model to be applied to mental illnesses. In this TED talk, the director of the National Institute of Mental Health proposes detecting brain changes before behavioral symptoms manifest for early detection and prevention of disorders.
Today I meditated for 17 minutes. (Bonus! Read about how meditation may decrease mind-wandering, improve working-memory capacity, and augment academic scores here.)
Today I acted kindly by baking bran bread for my brother. Alliteration and deliciousness.
