Study indicates cell phones interrupt critical one-on-one interaction that develops vocabulary. Though parents are often concerned about the effects of too much screen time on young children, it may be the adults who need to set aside their devices.
 
Psychologists found that when we learn the names of unfamiliar objects, brain regions involved in learning actively predict the objects the names correspond to. The brain tests these predictions just as scientists would test a scientific theory.

The Power of Writing Your Goals
 
Setting goals has become so popular but why is it that so many people fall short of what they want? Why is it that 92% of New Years Resolutions aren't achieved? There are countless factors but one of them is that their goals aren't written and reviewed regularly. Here are some of the benefits of writing your goals: 
 
It Demands Clarity
By writing your goals down, it forces you to have clarity on what you actually want. It makes you give time to thinking about what your goals are and and defines the path on how to get there. 
 
It Shows Progress
Progress is one of the keys to living a happy life. If we aren't progressing, it is hard to feel fulfilled. By writing your goals, you can now measure your progress and adjust the actions you take along the way. 
 
It Keeps You On Track
On the path to achieving a goal, we change our direction multiple times on the way. By having our goals written down, we have a clear picture of what we need to do to achieve the things we want.
 
It Helps You Create a Plan
The biggest mistake people make when achieving a goal is that they lose sight of their plan on how to get there. By writing down your goals, you get a better idea of what you need to do to achieve them. Setting a goal is not enough, you need to create a plan on how to achieve it.
 
Whatever your aspirations are for your life, realize that writing down the things you want take your ability to achieve them to a new level. Write your goals, create a plan, adjust along the way, and don't stop until you achieve everything you want.
