When was the last time you felt truly alive? In harmony with yourself, in the flow with your professional tasks, completely in the present moment. At a recent workshop the facilitator asked exactly this question; and it shook me to the core. A simple question that leads directly to existential contemplations. Am I living my life, or is it just "happening" to me? Am I fully engaged in it, or is it flowing by? Is it perhaps as John Lennon sang in "Beautiful Boy": "Life is what happens to you While you're busy making other plans"
Why should we care about these two words: “cognitive load”? Perhaps I should begin this explanation by introducing myself. I’m Dr. Helen Willis, and I am a cognitive neuroscientist. I have my own online neuroscience consultancy, The Connectome Connection. I am also the partner of a '23J student. We have just completed P1 and P2 in Singapore, and are in the process of moving over to Fontainebleau for P3-5.
