First: If you want to see the June Introductory Blog for this series on Right
Brain Thinking, see ARCHIVE, lower right column for "The Coming Age of the Right Brain" -- and "It's Not about Left Brain / RIght Brain Labels But Rapid Development of Multidimensional Intelligence"
Right brain thinking emerges from simple,
but surprisingly powerful steps. Right brain exercise techniques are most
often “stress reduction techniques” as well.
What is surprising is the number of “ah hah” moments – inner genius that
suddenly appears when you shift to right brain mode, taking a “time out from
the left brain.” This can mean
surprising new ideas – even for tough business and personal problems -- when you
start accessing right brain states.
Discovery in non-linear action. So here are 3 simple ways to shift
your mental/conscious awareness and life-skills terrain, and you also improve health and happiness. Try this for 3 days and watch what happens…!
1. Take "time outs" for movement and a right brain refresh.
Do NOT sit at a computer/pad/mobile
device for hours on end in one position. Set a specific time to stop or you won’t
stop. Take a refreshing mental-and-movement "break," if you don't want to suffer from "small screen
mind" -- or stiff joints, carpal tunnel - in effect, carpal tunnel/repetitive
stress on the brain. If you want more "movement" in your life, create
a “right brain cue” by replicating this symbol with physical and mental “movement.” Relax-walk-think
for a break. New ideas will come.
Einstein liked pacing, playing the violin, or hiking – that’s when his
best ideas came. In 21st
century stress, this could be health saving as well!
2. Do a Right Brain Start Up Exercise Several Times a Day
Do “Right Brain
Start Up”from Right Brain Aerobics, any time anywhere to reboot mentally and physically. Do several times a day and watch mental
acumen shift, creative “out of the blue” ideas start to pop up. Teach family and friends to do it. It can improve
health with oxygenation, hydration, positive thinking, stress reduction, lower
blood pressure – with increased right brain activity. Click here and start now. Just follow the instructions!
3. Get more sleep (brain processing time) every night.
more often! + Put a notebook and pen by the bed.The brain processes at night and the imaginative right brain
is ready to "check in" in the morning with new ideas and
inspiration. The “sleeping
brain” is actually at work! We regularly
interrupt powerful brain processing that is key to career achievement -- by getting less than 7-8 hours of sleep. Or
we don't pay attention to the morning read out! If you write/journal brain
output in the morning (don’t use electronics, you need a brain-break from that)
– it “pulls for” more reports the next day, habituating the process.
Getting more sleep, doing a
Right Brain Start Up, and journaling your innovative insights in the morning --
will change health and mood, “pull for” more “inner genius” every day
habitually. This is career-accelerating
and relationship-changing stuff in small tidbits. I’ve lived it and agree that…
“A notepad by the bedside accounts for
half the earnings of my livelihood.”
