In the second article summery I am following a similar theme to the article discussed last week I.E. improving diet to improve health. However this time the article focuses on how your diet impacts on your brain function.
53 weeks ago I made the decision to create my own website. 7 days later it went live. I did this because I wanted to have a platform that allowed me to easily share my ideas that I had control over. This past year has been both busy and productive (not necessarily the same thing) and also hugely rewarding. A lot has changed since I started blogging and a lot of those changes have occurred because of that decision.
I thought I would spend some time this year seeing if I can actively improve the way I learn and the way my brain works. Because I have seen quite a few adverts for the superlearner book and online course I thought I would give that a try.
This a very short audiobook (4.5 hours) but that is because most of the information actually isn't in the book but rather on the syllabus which can be downloaded online. That has links to further reading, homework to do, tests and games. I like this concept because it allows the authors to continually make sure the information is up to date, however it doesn't work in the way it has been presented here in my opinion. There is just so little in the book itself that a 45 minute car journey results in listening to 10 chapters, each of which has associated reading and homework to be done.
