In the first module week 1, we learned about Mediation and being mindful. I always had though that meditation was a long process and never assumed I would have time for it. I thought you would have to train your mind to be able to full release yourself into mediation. After watching the two videos I realized, one how easy it was to acutely do the meditation. I found because it was 10 minutes I was ready and willing to do it. After the mediation was over I felt relaxed and able to focus much better. I plan to use this in the future after work to decompress I feel this would be a great idea. I also would like to do this before I start doing my homework as I can then focus just on the assignments. I was so wrong about meditation and what being …show more content…
The first one being “Is Google making us stupid.” By Nicholas Carr. In this article Carr states that the new way of reading online is skimming multiple articles. He states that we don’t fully read like we did in the past, although we are “reading more than we did in the 70’s and 80’s. I do agree with this I find that when I am reading online I am not reading like I would in a book and I do not remember as much as I do when I read a book. I do not believe Google is making us stupid, but I do believe technology in general is making us lazy. When I go online I read the whole article or even know which one is the truth to the question I want answered. So many people can make a website and put whatever they want online. The next article “Is the internet making us Stupid?” By Nathanael Enwald. I agree with something the author put in his article “We’ve all heard the saying; our brain is a muscle that needs to be exercised.” I believe this is so true I like to say if you don’t use it you lose it. I also believe without the internet we appreciated the work we did to find the information for different things. Not that I do not love the internet and the ease of finding my own information but I strive to make sure I am still using my head in other ways so I do not lose what I have strived so hard to get. The last article is “Is Google making us stupid?” by Debate.org I do agree with a lot of what both sides were saying, for instance “it …show more content…
There are also 3 things to begin being dreams, what we dream about like a great job or something that needs to be done. Then there is feelings, what kind of emotions drive your thinking. For intense are you happy with your job they state for some if you are not happy with your work, you are less likely to work. The next is thinking and how you think every day we think about different things at different times like what to do next in situations. I totally agree with the author, as much as I would love to say I am a great thinker after reading these chapters I know I need a little more skill building in this area. I have three hats I wear a mother, an LNA, and a Para. I feel in my first hat I have to anticipate everything that is going to happen to keep my kids safe, but I also have to be free and fun loving so they have a great time. As a LNA it is all business and I have to be ready for anything to happen and know how to fix the situation very quickly as someone’s life could be at stake. When I am dealing with end of life care or post mortem care I have to be caring and unemotional so that I can do my job without any mistakes. My last hat is a paraprofessional at a high school working with non-verbal Autistic children.
