Children's participation in yoga activities is receiving increasingly widespread attention as an exercise system that promotes not only physical health benefits but also psychological well-being. The authors of this article introduce how yoga practices can be implemented in an early childhood classroom to enhance children's mind and body harmony, develop their kinesthetic awareness, and provide opportunities for regular exercise. A school-based yoga project such as the one described here can increase children's knowledge of health, while helping them develop skills of balance and control and promoting imagination and collaboration between peers.

In our database of 331 parental narratives of tantrums had by children 18–60 months old, 29% of the tantrums were followed by child-initiated affiliation with parents. Four variables increased the probability of children's post tantrum affiliation (PTA): age, prolonged screaming, physiological stress, and parent-initiated separation from the child during the tantrum. The age effect may be due to increasing post tantrum persistence of negative affect, to the emergence of shame, guilt, and embarrassment over this developmental period, and/or to increasing cognitive ability, empathic capacity, or socialization. Screaming, which may be analogous to the defensive vocalizations of nonhuman primates, increases PTA when prolonged for 6 min or more. Physiological stress (indicated by autonomic activation or respiratory distress) appears linked to prolonged screaming and may mediate its effects by increasing the child's dysphoria and need for consolation. Separation (parents' departure from the scene of the tantrum or their imposition of a time out) also appears linked to prolonged screaming and may reflect parents' response to an aversive auditory stimulus. There was no evidence that PTA was associated with the presence or degree of physically expressed anger in the tantrum. PTA may be associated with distress during the tantrum. The post conflict reconciliation which occurs in several domains of human social life may be first experienced by children in the aftermath of their tantrums. Aggr.

Although mindfulness, or the self-regulation of attention, has been found beneficial in reducing teacher stress and burnout and in increasing students’ cognitive and emotional regulatory skills, no study has explored students’ attitudes toward meditation practices in depth. This mixed-methods study reports results from a randomized, controlled trial of a 10-week mindfulness intervention in a public school setting with 28 4th-grade students from lower income and ethnic minority backgrounds. Over the course of the intervention, students were asked to respond to writing and drawing prompts about their feelings and attitudes toward mindfulness. At the end of the intervention, the experimental teacher rated students on how often they had practiced mindfulness breathing during class. Qualitative analysis of journal entries yielded personality traits of students who were receptive or resistant to mindfulness training. Practical strategies for identifying and remediating resistant students and for implementing mindfulness interventions in a school setting are discussed.

Though the story of Emily and Paul, a working couple with different job situations, the author shows how to better organize, prioritize, remember, and process our working lives. Explores such issues as why our brains feel so taxed, and how to maximize our mental resources; why changing behavior is so difficult - and how to make it less so; why focusing on problems doesn't seem to create the desired change; and how concentration and focus change the brain, and how to maintain energy and productivity at work.

Our in-breath is like a remote control for our brains, directly affecting electrical signals that communicate with memory and emotional processing centers.

The ability to determine the mental state of others — what they know, perceive, believe, or intend — is known as "theory of mind." This ability is important to social interactions, in which one must understand another's behavior and his or her underlying intentions.Theory of mind develops during toddlerhood in humans. However, it remains unclear whether nonhuman primates also have theory of mind or whether it is a uniquely human ability. Bania and Stromberg (2013, Journal of Comparative Psychology) (PDF, 119KB) addressed this question by testing whether western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) are able to recognize another individual's attention and use this information to predict behavior. Gorillas had to gesture to one of two experimenters standing in front of them to receive a food reward. Only gestures toward the experimenter who was looking at (and therefore attending to) the gorilla were rewarded. Gorillas were more likely to choose the experimenter whose body was oriented toward them but looking away versus the experimenter whose body was oriented away but looking toward them (Figure C), suggesting that gorillas were using body orientation to guide their decisions. However, when body orientation was neutral (experimenters stood sideways; Figure B), gorillas relied on head orientation and tended to choose the experimenter facing them.
