#TDE – The Daily Encouragement: “Right here, right now… there’s nowhere else that I’d rather be…” (#WorldPeace #WorldViews through #Buddhism)

30 Jun

I wanted to share today’s Daily Encouragement with you.

"The place where we are right now is what matters. This is all the more true for us who embrace the Mystic Law. Buddhism teaches that we can transform wherever we are into the Land of Eternally Tranquil Light."

What does doodling do? – Andrade – 2009 – Applied Cognitive Psychology – Wiley Online Library

Abstract

Doodling is a way of passing the time when bored by a lecture or telephone call. Does it improve or hinder attention to the primary task? To answer this question, 40 participants monitored a monotonous mock telephone message for the names of people coming to a party. Half of the group was randomly assigned to a ‘doodling’ condition where they shaded printed shapes while listening to the telephone call. The doodling group performed better on the monitoring task and recalled 29% more information on a surprise memory test. Unlike many dual task situations, doodling while working can be beneficial. Future research could test whether doodling aids cognitive performance by reducing daydreaming. Copyright © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

@CBS Sunday Morning footnoted their Cover Story for June 22nd 2014 with above; also mentioned Sunni Brown’s “Doodling Revolution” – all of it as I dared doodle at work recently.

Go figure (pun intended!)
