While it may seem counterintuitive, your brain will actually perform more efficiently if you take breaks from work. Because your brain is built to respond to change, it eventually stops responding to the same sight or sounds after a period of time. This process of habituation is why you aren’t constantly aware of your clothing touching your skin. And your brain also habituates when forced to focus on the same task for a long period of time, according to research from the University of Illinois. Researchers found that even tiny, multi-second distractions could break the cycle of habituation and help you stay focused longer and perform better. So instead of feeling guilty for your Facebook breaks, think about how you’re boosting your productivity. Share this post with friends and let us know what you think in the comments.

How you talk to a toddler now can have a big impact on how they interact with others years later. Between the ages of 3 and 6, children develop a “theory of mind,” or the ability to understand other people’s thoughts and see things from their perspective. Researchers from the University of Cambridge followed toddlers for 8 years to understand why some developed this understanding earlier than others. The amount of thought-related words like know, idea, and interest parents used around two-year-olds predicted the children’s performance on theory of mind tests years down the road. Researchers believe that encouraging very young children to think about other’s thoughts and experiences can set them up to become better social reasoners their entire lives. What do you think?

using trellis frames is a simple way to increase your growing space. What's growing on your trellis this year?

We've already expanded to 4 pallet compost bins. They're not even, but hey neither is the fence. :-) By the time I mix in several hundred pounds of brewing grain over the next few months as well as add the rest of our fallen leaves and pine straw, I think we're gonna have quite a haul of good compost for next year. I'm not sure about adding swinging doors. I'm trying to think of a different method.

These vertical garden wraps look like a great idea for making use of the space used up by a water tank:

Keep wasps and bees away this summer. Put about 10 cloves in 1/2 a lemon and set out. They do not like the scent. Cut off the ends so they sit flat. : http://is.gd/5PmIfl

One way to teach young children about growing their own food is through creating them a miniature garden. They can even start learning the basics of crop rotation too!
