The brain is the organ in our body responsible for processing sensory information, regulating blood pressure, and breathing. It also controls our thoughts, memory and speech, movement of the arms and legs, and the function of many organs within our body. It is very powerful that we need to use it every time and we tend to abuse it. That is why we need to clear our minds to use our brains.
Ways to clear our minds.
The key to “optimal inattention” lies in occupying your mind with something else through distraction. This is based on the study conducted by The Journal of Neuroscience. When you are overwhelmed by your own thoughts, it’s time to think of something else. Distracting yourself gives you space and time to figure things out.
Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly experiencing via your senses, or to your state of mind via your thought and emotions, you are being mindful. There is also growing research showing that when you train your brain to be mindful, you are actually remodeling the physical structure of your brain. This is according to Mindful.org. More studies also have found out that mindfulness may help in reducing rumination.
Practice mindfulness and train your brain to look at things objectively.
