“The brain not only receives information but interprets and patterns it”
I found the above-mentioned definition of the pattern (verb) after a google search. First time when I heard this prompt the idea stuck to me to write about the human brain.
After reading a bit about the connection between brain and pattern, I realized that although machines nowadays can do pretty much everything, however, there is still something that sets the human race apart.
BRAIN a power to think and evolve. Ever noticed how magical and emotional it is to see the tiny human being learn a new activity each day. They grasp things in seconds and then they become persistent until they master it. While I was reading about it more and more I realized that almost everything, every-time and everywhere has a pattern. The topic is too vast to cover so I decided to look into one tiny part of it, human nature.
There is a set pattern of behavior and thought the process that goes with every human being and if you can control these patterns then you become the master of the circus called life.
I am a person driven by emotions. I have tried zillion times to change it and take my brain with me whenever I go on an emotional roller coaster, but it never works. So, I decided to research (google search I meant) a little more about human brain or emotions. The power of positive thinking has been studied, talked about and documented time and again. If you too are under the attack of negative thoughts then read on and I assure you that these tips will help you:
Mantra works wonders:
Decide or pick a positive mantra for yourself first thing once you wake up. It could be as easy as is “It is going to be a beautiful day” or “It’s a happy day”. Repeat it silently to yourself as you go about your day. Using a mantra will not only give you something positive to think about, but it also takes up time your brain might otherwise use for negative thoughts
This is something I have learned recently from a fellow blogger and it really worked for me. Sit down with a piece of paper and come up with five things you’re grateful for. Making a gratitude list can change your mood and keep you focused on the positive in life.
Control your monkey mind:
This is something that I have been trying for a month now. I saw a video of a monk giving us this monkey mind trick. As per him, this is how the meditation starts. Close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. That’s it! I know it is difficult to control zillion thoughts when they pop in our mind, however, it is tad bit easy if we focus our mind towards our breathing. Start with just 2 minutes and gradually increase the timing.
