Empathy seems to be a crucial component of social intelligence, and many scholars argue that empathy is the basis for morality. The area of the brain associated with higher-level thinking, empathy, and guilt is underused by teenagers, reports a new study. . When considering an action, the teenage medial prefrontal cortex, located in front of the brain, doesn't get as much action as adults. . "Thinking strategies change with age," said Sarah-Jayne Blakemore of the University College London Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience. "As you get older you use more or less the same brain network to make decisions about your actions as you did when you were a teenager, but the crucial difference is that the distribution of that brain activity shifts from the back of the brain (when you are a teenager) to the front (when you are an adult)." . So people want to know when and how children become aware of the feelings of others. . They want to know how a deficit in empathy might lead to aggressive or antisocial behavior problems. . And they want to know what practical measures we can take to foster empathy in children as they develop. . Notions of empathy require pretty complex skills, like perspective-taking. Children may not develop such skills until they are four or five. . Newborn babies become distressed when they hear other infants cry, and they pay close attention to our emotional signals. . By 12 months, some babies attempt to soothe people who seem distressed or upset. . Moreover toddlers show a remarkable degree of sophistication when they try to help us (Martin and Olson 2013). .

March Meet the Maker - “Dream Collaboration” I don’t have a specific dream collaboration in mind, but I would love to work with wellness professionals (such as massage therapists and other body workers) to create custom bulk products that they can use with their clients. - I love making custom blends of carrier oils, infused oils, custom aromatherapy blends, and other custom herbal products. It would be a dream to add making those kinds of products to my weekly work. For a while, I was making custom calendula oil for another skin care maker, and that was so fun! I have two decades of experience making all kinds of herbal products, and I’d love to be able to use that knowledge in different ways. - I’d also love to make custom bulk food items like infused honeys and tea blends for restaurants and cafes! I just really like to make stuff, and want to find ways to create a better living around doing what I love. 📷: @melissakoren • • • • • #marchmeetthemaker2019#marchmeetthemaker#meetthemaker#behindthescenes#makersmovement#makersgonnamake#makerslife#makermade#madeinnh#nhmade#wunderbudder#herbalist#aromatherapist#holistic#naturalliving
I travel with essential oils. I mean, I have a little bag inside my purse that contains my 12 most used and versatile oils. I had lunch with Delaney at school today. As the children were lining up to leave the cafeteria, one of Delaney’s sweet friends threw up. Her friend was so strong and didn’t even cry. As Delaney was leaving, I told her to put her wrists out and put a drop of Thieves essential oil on her inner wrists and told her to breath in the oil. Thieves is a great protector. By applying to her inner wrists, the oil will enter her bloodstream. Breathing the oil will help kill the airborne particles that could get her sick. We are about wellness! Keeping our bodies above the wellness line so that when a virus is presented... our body is prepared to fight it off. Hugs to Delaney’s friend. . . . . . . #casualstyle#changehabits#chemicafree#entrepreneur#evoilutionary#familyadventures#focus#healthyliving#love#lovewhatyoudo#natural#naturalliving#toxinfree#youbeyou#vomit#abovewellnessline#lunchwithmykid

SPINAL SEGMENTATION You’re as only as young as your spine. . I was inspired by the #budokon Cobra Roll, and simply implemented the #stickmobility stick to add my own flavor to it. . Give it a try! Take it nice and slow, and remember to breathe. It’s great to beast mode in the gym, but remember…even literal beasts do their stretches and downward dogs upon awakening every morning. :) ______________________________________ 15% Stick Mobility Discount w/ promo code: mmayogi
Got to hear the babes heartbeat this morning at my midwife appointment 🤰 Went thrifting 🕯 Met the fam at Blaze Pizza for the first time and we all loved it ❤️ I’ve been wanting pizza but also have been avoiding gluten and dairy because I feel so good when I do. Today felt like a splurge because I got to have a pizza with gluten free crust with vegan cheese. Highly recommend the Green Stripe pizza! The whole family approved and so did our cheap lunch budget 😍
Forgot to post this yesterday after a good nights rest, my dōTERRA supplements and my oils I was bright eyed and yoga ready!

You know that I want my friends to be healthy and happy. . #worryonlyhurtsourselves#worrysolvesnothing#letsbreakthecycle . “Every system in your body is affected by worry. In addition to raising blood pressure and increasing blood clotting, worry can prompt your liver to produce more cholesterol, all of which can raise your risk of heart attack and stroke. Muscle tension can give rise to headaches, back pain, and other body aches. Worry can also trigger an increase in stomach acid and either slow or speed up muscle contractions in your intestines, which can lead to stomach aches, constipation, diarrhea, gas or heartburn. Worry can affect your skin (rash or itch). It can impact your respiratory system by aggravating asthma. Growing evidence even suggests that chronic worry can compromise your immune system, making you more vulnerable to bacteria, viruses, perhaps even cancer.” Dr D. McCoy If it costs you your peace? . . . It's not worth it.
I wholeheartedly believe we should all learn sign language in school. I’m 2 days into my rehearsals for Chisato Minamimura’s ‘Hand in Hand’, a dance piece bringing together hearing, deaf, disabled and able bodied participants together for a performance. I’ve always thought it just made sense to teach BSL in schools, but now I’m most definitely convinced. Through these days I’ve found myself frustrated that I can’t always communicate with my deaf fellow performers. In rehearsals we have interpreters, but at lunch time they need to use their hands to eat and suddenly I’m not able to have a conversation without writing things down or trying to mime. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be a deaf person in a more remote area or without access to a lot of specific groups for deaf people, how this small sense of frustration or disconnection I’ve had must be massively amplified for them. There are friendships and human connections we’re all missing out on, simply because we can’t talk to each other. Plus, sign language is a beautiful method of communication! It conveys so much nuance and personality in an embodied way (did you know there are regional dialects for sign language too? Newcastle is different to London!) which I think is really fascinating as a hearing person, and something which I can definitely learn from. Basically, I want to learn and communicate and be more inclusive. I hope more people will join me, and I hope we will move to help all children learn this language too. (Also, I understand the argument that schools don’t have the budget but I would argue that if we made huge corporations actually pay their taxes we would have a lot more money in our national budget for public services like schools 🙃 and then we could provide more jobs by employing BSL teachers too). There are regular petitions that go round for this, but I hope you‘ll consider contacting your local representative to ask about it! (I’m also aware it

🌞The sun is finally out in Toronto and it’s time to think about a good sunscreen (not that you don’t need it all year around). . . I’ve tried so many sunscreens out there and either they were living a white cast on my face or causing terrible breakouts 😰 . I’ve been using @suntegrity sunscreen for a year now and can absolutely say that it’s one of the best natural sunscreens on the market 😍 ✅does not cause breakouts ✅does not leave any white cast ✅broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) ✅super light (non-greasy) ✅contains all natural ingredients ✅has a very pleasant citrus scent ✅acts as a primer and moisturizer ✅little goes a long way . #cleanliving#cleanbeauty#naturalliving#naturalbeauty#naturalsunscreen#facesunscreen#torontolife#russiangirl🇷🇺
So fun fact: did you know that there are a few new studies showing why some babies might be late teethers? I didn’t believe it at first but after more research + my own personal experience I was actually quite intrigued to learn that the reason some babies get their teeth later than others is because of breastfeeding. • The study was discussing that the reason some babies who are breastfed might not get their teeth as early as other babies is because their bodies know that if they had teeth their latch likely wouldn’t be as strong. The teeth would get in the way and prevent them from being able to smoothly suck once latched on to the nipple. At first I didn’t think it was true but then I thought about how Braiden, my formula-fed baby, got his first tooth at age 5 months and had seven altogether by the time he was 12 months. Then there’s Novalee, my exclusively breastfed baby, who didn’t her her first tooth until she was 11.5 months and here we are at almost 15 months and she still only has four teeth, and is still strongly nursing. • I can’t say whether this is in fact 100% true or not really, but based on the articles I read through and comparing my own babies I was able to see why research may suggest this about infants’ teething. • I can attest that my children prove this article correct, what about you? Did you notice a difference in your child(ren)’s teething if they were formula or breast fed? 🧐🍼
Hey guys! This morning I wanted to do a little comparison, and my experience using both of these products! Back story: since getting pregnant, my acne has been worse then it’s ever been before! Even in high school, it wasn’t this bad. But unfortunately this is just normal hormones for being pregnant! 🤷♀️ I went to my local drug store and purchased Aveeno cleanser for about $22.00. It’s such a simple and gentle wash, one quick swipe and all my makeup comes off! But it wasn’t helping clear my skin at all! So then I purchased dōTERRA’s HD clean facial cleanser. Although this bottle is $28.00 wholesale, and is significantly smaller then the Aveeno brand, this has helped clear up my skin like no other cleanser has yet! . . Over this weekend, I had a VERY busy weekend, seeing family, going to events, the whole weekend was full, and at night I felt tempted to use my Aveeno cleanser because it takes all my makeup off so easily (and although the dōTERRA cleanser is amazing for my skin, you have to be a bit more intentional with rubbing it all over to cleanse, and take all of the makeup off). So for two nights I used my Aveeno, and ALL MY ACNE CAME BACK! Literally! I woke up Monday morning with a face full of pimples! I was so discouraged because of all the progress I had made in my skin! So yesterday morning I used my dōTERRA skin line again in the morning, and at night. This morning I woke up literally with no more pimples! A few red spots where those pimples are now healing, but the acne itself is gone! Quality matters people, and although I am a huge dōTERRA lover, I’m still amazed by its functions! . . The moral of this mornings rant is that quality matters, and is so worth the extra cost when it delivers the results you are looking for! I hope this post can encourage someone else who may also be struggling with their skin! Please message me if you want to buy this cleanser, or are interested in how to get involved with a wholesale account!

I am seen and incredibly loved by the Creator of the Universe, the Painter of the Sunsets.... and so are you!!! So refreshed after this weekend...! So inspired by the amazing women who surrounded me this weekend, inspired to be dedicated to creating quiet space for Him to speak to me on the daily. How do you create space in your life for Him to speak to you? Stay up late? Get up early? Podcasts? Worship? Walks?
spring break 🌞 sunscreen is so important! but living in the Florida sun my whole life & dealing with skin cancer in the past, it’s a must! it amazes me that just a year ago I was totally unaware of the toxic ingredients in sunscreen. last summer big name companies were being sued for greenwashing their labels & tricking us into thinking they were organic or safe for our babies. then Hawaii outlawed most sunscreens because of the damage it was causing to their reefs, yet I couldn’t help but wonder the immense amount of damage it was doing to my body as I slathered it on every few hours 🤯 but I have young living & essential rewards 💛 so this month I restocked on my sunscreen. I’m so thankful to be going into these warmer months with young living’s sunscreen. I know it’s 100% clean ingredients & effective. SPF 10 & 50. when you know better you do better. learning about sunscreen was just one step on my journey. I want to help you with yours, let’s chat ✨
