Are you a creature of habit? I am not referring to toilet paper brands. If your closest acquaintances can predict your daily routine, then it is time for some mind limbering.
- Break habits, rearrange daily tasks, and create new routines.
- Update your mind’s playbook. Revisit your schema and update your outlook, a.k.a. your book of rules.
- Now for the workout…engage your prefrontal cortex. Participate in new activities, not in your daily routine.
- Recognize and accept all of your emotions. Ride the roller coaster! According to a Duke University study, denying one’s emotions is a culprit for addictive behaviors.
- Change your focus throughout the day. Allow your mind time to relax and your emotions change.
Mind limbering is stimulating. Go ahead, create some new neural pathways and feel the difference!
