Performing Under Pressure

It is often said that moderate pressure makes people perform better. The Yerkes-Dodson Law of psychology states that a given task needs an ideal level of motivation or arousal.

Too much or too little psychological activation can hinder the implementation of the task. Any challenge would also appear stressful and a burden on us if it is imposed without our consent or intrinsic interest.

Temper Tantrums

Throwing temper tantrums are a part of normal childhood development and through this they are also able to communicate their feelings to their parents or guardians, in socially acceptable ways.

These usually start when they are a year old and continue until they are toddlers.

  • “It's hard for me to lose weight.”
  • “I'm not good with numbers.”
  • “I'm not a natural athlete.”
  • “I'm not creative.”
  • “I'm a procrastinator.”

Laughter as a method of bonding

Laughter is a form of social bonding because it is contagious and allows us to show that we are non-threatening.

We laugh when we see or hear something funny. We laugh to show that we are being silly.

Parents and others go to great lengths to overwhelm children with evidence about Santa.

  • The Elf on the Shelf is now a multi-million-dollar franchise.

Why children believe (or not) that Santa Claus exists


  1. Discarding by category comes first (clothes first, then books, papers etc.)
  2. Break a category into subcategories (e.g. Tops: shirts, sweaters etc.)
  3. Keep only those things that spark joy (pick them one by one and decide if they stay or not)
  4. After you've finished discarding, organize your space thoroughly and completely (store all items of the same type in the same place)
  5. Do it all in one go (tidy up in one shot, rather than little by little).
