Taking too many photographs...

 Recent research suggests taking too many photographs might have an adverse effect on our ability to remember in detail events we just photographed. In the Connecticut Fairfield University study, subjects were taken to a museum, where they had the option of taking photographs of works of art or simply observing and committing to memory the artwork on exhibit. The following day, those who hadn't taken any photographs were better able to recognize the objects they had seen, and in greater detail.  When people rely on technology to remember for them, it can have a negative impact on how well they remember their experiences.

Manage your feelings...

 It's important managing ones feelings. You wonder if I every get angry. Of course I do. Everybody gets angry sometimes. Each person has their own way of showing angry feelings. Usually, if I'm angry, I play loud and angry sounds on the piano. I think that ways of showing our feelings, in ways that don't hurt ourselves or anybody else, is one of the most important things we can learn to do.
