Do you ever feel like you’re walking around in a fog?
I feel that way most mornings until I’ve finished my third cup of coffee, then I’m off to the races.
I happened across another way to chase away that dull sense of dissatisfaction and confusion – they have been permeating the landscape for going on three weeks of continual rain and gloom. My son commented yesterday that he suspected the suicide rate must be increasing in the Southeast because of these weather conditions.
I’m going to show you one of many ways to clear up that feeling in about 30 seconds.
First, you should know that your primary line of defense is optimizing your brain and learning how to focus more effectively according to Simpleology 101.
Simply close your eyes and visualize in your mind that your head is about one inch bigger all around than it is. (I know several people who practice this all their lives – tee hee.) Actually see this in your mind’s eye.
If you hold this image in your head for about 30 seconds straight, it sends your nervous system a signal to pump more oxygen to your brain. It’s a bizarre “brain hack,” but it’s actually measurable via CT scan.
People who try it usually experience a sense of heightened alertness on the first try. (If it didn’t work – try a few times – really see your head as being larger in your mind’s eye.)
