A Smarter You - In Minutes

According to the May 2011 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, activities that put you in a happy mood can get the creative juices flowing.  In a research at the University of Western Ontario, people who listen to peppy music (Mozart) and watched a happy video (a laughing baby) were better able to solve certain kinds of problems than volunteers who listened to sad soundtrack clips (from Schindler's List) or watched neutral videos (Antiques Road-show) or negative ones (earthquake news).  The happy folks did better then the others on problems that specifically called for classifying patterns, but you can try it for any project where you need to think innovative, suggested lead author Ruby T. Nadler: "It doesn't require much effort or time.  Just a few minutes with something that makes you feel good will work."
I'm sure this will work with children.  Children need to listen to positive music, watch positive videos, and positive television shows anyway.  What goes in will come out! So safeguard your children's minds.
