Brain GYM and Reading

Brain GYM and Reading
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Katya_Seberson/2207882]Katya Seberson

My day began with taking a class on Brain Gym 101, led by Mari Miyoshi.

She is such a delight!

Brain Gym is this self-improvement technique discovered by Dr. Paul Dennison. It caught my attention because Dennison worked as a public school teacher and reading specialist in the 1960s, researching more effective ways to help children and adults with learning difficulties. As a result, he came up with this technique.

It consists of 26 movements and works towards balancing your brain.

One of my absolute favorites was the sequence called PACE.

It begins with taking a sip of water, which nourishes your nervous system.

Sipping Water stands for E (Energy) in PACE.

BRAIN BUTTONS stands for C (Clear) in PACE.

Rest one hand over your navel. With the thumb and fingers of the other hand, feel for the two hollow areas under the collarbone, about one inch out from the center of the chest. Rub these areas vigorously for 30 seconds. If you want to add an extra level of complexity, you can also look from left to right.

Why do we do it? This stimulates the carotid arteries which supply freshly oxygenated blood to the brain. They help re-establish directional messages from parts of the body to the brain, improving reading, writing, speaking and the ability to follow directions.

CROSS-CRAWL stands for A (Active) in PACE.

Standing up, “march” in place, alternately touching each hand to the opposite knee.

Continue during the course of four to eight complete, relaxed breaths.

Why do we do this? This exercise is wonderful for improving reading, listening, writing and memory. It co-ordinates the whole brain.

The last exercise in the sequence called Hook-Ups. It stands for P (Positive) in PACE.

Start by sitting in a chair, resting your left ankle on top of your right knee. Grasp your left ankle with your right hand and the ball of your right foot with your right hand. As you inhale, place your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, about one-quarter of an inch behind your front teeth. Relax your tongue as you exhale. Close your eyes and rest in this posture for four to eight complete breaths.

Now uncross your legs, placing your feet flat on the floor. Lightly steeple the fingertips of both hands

together, as if you were enclosing a ball.

Keep your eyes closed as you continue to lift your tongue on the inhalation and lower it on the exhalation, relaxing in this position during the course of four to eight complete breaths.

This exercise connects the two hemispheres of the brain and strengthens the body’s electrical energy, particularly in stressful environments such as offices. Reported benefits are increased vitality and improved self-esteem.

I plan to use this sequence to set the stage for learning and reading. It certainly had an energizing and soothing effect on my brain. I highly recommend the program!

Well-Known Songs That Were Inspired By News Articles

Well-Known Songs That Were Inspired By News Articles
By [http://EzineArticles.com/expert/Doug_Poe/1952596]Doug Poe
Songs these days rarely make the headlines, even when they hit the very top of the charts. For example, you might have to dig deep into the newspaper to find the title of even the current number one single, “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber.
Conversely, many classic songs owe their very creations to headlines of newspaper articles, including one from an album by The Beatles that is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this summer. Much more recently Will Butler of Arcade Fire once spent a week writing songs based on headlines from The Guardian, citing Bob Dylan as his inspiration for the idea.
It was Dylan himself who once made the comment that some of his songs were based on headlines, compositions that probably helped him earn the honor of receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature last year. One of those songs is listed below, as well as six by other artists who were inspired by newspaper articles.
A Day In the Life by The Beatles
John Lennon read the newspaper account detailing the fatal accident that claimed the life of a well-known 25 year old, and the co-leader of the Fab Four soon had the song that would close out the legendary Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album.
The Ballad of Alferd Packer by Phil Ochs
Enclosed with the lyrics inside the case holding The Broadside Tapes CD is a copy of the actual news article that led the folk singer to write this song about a mountain guide who resorts to cannibalism after being stranded in a blizzard.
The Legend of Andrew McCrew by Don McLean
The Homeless Brother album features a snippet of the article that led McLean to tell the world about a legless hobo who, after being preserved until someone claimed his corpse, is picked up by a traveling carnival and labeled as the Mummy Man.
Rockin’ the Paradise by Styx
Since the band was born in the Windy City, it makes sense that they would see the article in The Chicago Star about the demolition of the historic Paradise Theater.
Grow Old With Me In Colorado by Tom Paxton
Governor Dick Lamb’s criticism of the expense of life-support machines in the Rocky Mountain State gave rise to this 1984 satire from the veteran folk singer.
Cologne by Ben Folds
The piano-playing alternative rocker composed this tune from Way To Normal after the newspaper story of the female astronaut who drove across the country to assault the lover of her ex-boyfriend.
The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll by Bob Dylan
This song came about after Dylan read the news story about the murder of an African-American bar maid in 1963, the same year the track would appear on The Times a They Are A-Changin’ album.
