The human body will self-correct at every opportunity:
– if we’re too hot we sweat
– if we’re too cold we shiver
– if we drink too much fluid our kidneys excrete it
– if eat too much sugar we produce more insulin
Research by Professor William Duggan shows that the human brain has the same self-correcting mechanism, and given time and space will provide clarity and solutions for problems that leave everyday rationality flummoxed. When at its most creative the human brain produces a high level of alpha waves.
Duggan found that worrying blocks the production of alpha waves in the brain which produces beta waves instead, which are associated with stress, introspection and negative thought patterns.
One way to maximize creativity and the production of alpha waves is to beditate.
When you wake up in the morning, instead of running the same old mental patterns about the day ahead, just stop for a few moments, relax and dump your should’s, would’s and could’s. Or as my friend Laurence Shorter says in his excellent book, The Lazy Guru’s Guide to Life, “Stop, tune in, and let go.”
And do the same just before you go to bed ….. stop and sync.
It’s amazing how much work you can get done when you’re not thinking.
– Let’s hope Elon Musk doesn’t have a scandal. Elongate would drag on forever.
– What’s blue and doesn’t weigh very much? Light blue.
– I got gas today for $1.49. Unfortunately it was at Burger King.
Live big & love deep.
