Optimize Your Thinking

Controlling our thinking can be our key to regulating our emotions. Figuring out how our brains are related to those of others is an art. We push ourselves long past what our brains can handle, even through physical exhaustion.

The capacity we have for active clear thought is limited. Yet, we use it like it is an unlimited resource.

“…one study indicated that the constant distraction of emails and phone calls reduce performance in an IQ test by 10 points, on average.”

We have to do better in conserving our brain’s work for the most important tasks at hand we have for the day. Even the very task of prioritizing your day can drain energy.

While stated earlier this week technology advancements have greatly improved our lives while at the same time come at a great cost as a distraction. Every time we try to resist our technology distractions, our ability to do so as we go on decreases too. Self-control is a limited resource. So move it away from sight and mind.

Observing our own thinking or mindfulness has a way of increasing our skill at focusing. By getting into mindfulness daily and regularly you can actually alter the very structure of your brain. Focusing our breath as it goes in and out, the feeling of the very activity of breathing, is a example of mindfulness.

Helping others arrive at their own insights has a added reward of making you feel great. One way to get them there is to help them develop a sense of self-feedback. This allows another to improve over and over again.

We can get caught in the common idea that if you aren’t delivering your best work, you should simply try harder. This actually is the worst thing that we can do as we work harder we exhaust our resources to think smarter. For our brain’s to work at their best, we need to reduce all the distractions that we can.

For our brain to work optimally, look into ways to have more choices and autonomy in your life. We need to train our abilities to reflect on our own thinking in a positive way. Recognizing and then dismissing everyday distractions is important if you want to stay focused.
