S2EP12: How Music Plays a Part in Learning

On this episode of Dentist Brain Candy, we continue our discussion of the book, Limitless by Jim Kwik. Today I’m discussing Part IV: Limitless Methods. Chapter 11 of the book is devoted to the discussion of focus. We all have so many things competing for our attention; it can cause anxiety and, worse yet, loss of focus, leaving us scattered and in a place where we accomplish less.

I walk you through Dr. Andrew Weil’s method for breathing to recenter yourself. Then we’ll look at your to-do list, and how you might use some anti-procrastination tools to complete a task you’ve been putting off so you can move into a more productive flow.

We’ll also talk about Chapter 12, which is about studying. Jim Kwik teaches that the most successful people are lifelong learners. Listen in as I walk you through seven of Jim’s simple habits to unlimit your studies, including how you can use Baroque music for better concentration when memorizing facts or for reading retention.

I also cover two thought-provoking articles from the October 2021 Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The first one, by Roberto Pippi, MD, DDS, is about Tooth and root extractions as trigger factors for medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ).

The second aranti-procrastination tools ticle looks at changes in the emergency patient volume and reasons for presentation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
