Doing Nothing

Want to come up with something artistic.?  Well, who doesn’t.! 

Want to enhance your thinking skills?

Lying down flat on the floor helps in thinking.

Doing nothing, absolutely nothing doesn’t mean that brain stops functioning. In fact the brain waves are seen to be much more active when we are awake and we do nothing.

Putting a plant and staring at it helps in thinking. Looking at a masterpiece i.e. a painting or a sculpture also helps in the thinking process.

The book, “59 Seconds” is great so far I am learning and sharing so much from this book.

Eating Slowly

We eat much more than usual if eat in front of a TV or more generally put a distraction. It’s true that eating while watching is much more fun but it’s not good for health. In the book “59 Seconds” the author also suggested eating slowly.

The communication between the brain and stomach is little slower than the other organs. The brain doesn’t immediately register that the stomach is full, it surprisingly takes whopping 20 minutes for the brain to fully comprehend that it is full. It gets worse if we eat with a distraction meaning a movie.

 

 

 

What’s Bothering You?

Writing things down have much more effect than merely sharing it with others. We know that if a painful memory is shared the pain gets halved it is true but not always. In the book “59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot”  the author Richard Wiseman shared that writing things down have much more impact than sharing it with others.

This I have experienced personally, and I did it when I had no idea about what I was doing. At that time I was preparing for senior secondary examination and I remember one day I sat down and wrote everything which was bothering me at that time. Nobody told me to do that, I actually had no one to tell. The problems which I was having at that time weren’t that a big deal (now that I think about it) but they appeared to be huge at that time.

I remember that I never bothered to look at those piece of papers again. But I do remember that I things which I wrote down on that day never bothered me again. It was as if I had forgotten all about it. It was pretty amazing. The memories all back to me when I read about writing things down from my current book.
