Beditate ….

June 27, 2016 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog

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 asleep or simply not thinking.

  1. What do you get from a forgetful cow?
    Milk of Amnesia.
  2. My friend David had his ID stolen yesterday.
    We now call him Dav.
  3. A chap on a tractor just drove past me shouting
    “The end of the world is nigh!!!”
    I think it was Farmer Geddon.

 

Live big & love deep.
