40 WAYS YOU CAN DEVELOP YOUR MIND
This is the second part of the previous post yesterday which I stated would be in three parts (the ‘trilogy of the 40’s). Now, having gotten the ‘TO DO LIST’ before death, you’ll need a really active and reproductive mind/mindset to push them through. Hence,developing the mind becomes pertinent.
I have also made some reasonable deductions on how the mind could be developed to achieve these things that need be done before death.
Here are the 40 ways you can develop your mind:
Exercise your mind, not just your body— Do crosswords, play chess,solve hard questions and puzzles.
Listen to music —-listen to inspirational pieces of music. Choose good and creative pieces of music. Classical music by the likes of Beethoven, Mozart,Chopin, Bach etc can do you a lot of good.
TALK TO THAT STRANGE PERSON SITTING BESIDE YOU.
Make new friends — Keeping yourself busy socially is stimulating to the mind.
Read a book by an author you most avoid — it helps you to try a new line of thinking.
Read the dictionary —learning a new word every 2 – 4 days will increase your vocabulary.
Share your skill — when you do this,you help your own skills too.
Ask questions in a large crowd — this helps in a marvelous way.
STAND ON A CHAIR FOR 3 MINUTES FOR A TIME — building self-discipline is a great way to take control of your mind. How this works is that your mind will keep on telling you to get down,while you decide to stay there. Discipline yourself!
CLOSE YOUR EYES —- learn to close your eyes and sit still, not to sleep. It activates your mind and stimulates your brain while helping the muscles of your eyes.
MEDITATE EVERY DAY!
Don’t talk now, Just listen —- It’s more important to listen, it tasks your mind.
Do something spontaneous — take time off work, take somebody out, buy a surprising gift for somebody etc.
Browse the internet —- educate yourself.
Take a cup of milk —- it will cool your brain.
Get lazy on your bed —- you are chasing nothing.
FIGHT YOUR STRESSOR — tackle what stresses you out the most.
Change your hands — if you are right-handed, try doing things with your left hand. It helps the hemispheres of your brain.
Change your thinking style — if something is not working out for you, try changing your thinking style and come to it from another angle.
Do something to improve your mind everyday.
Eat plenty of fish if you can.
When on the street, TRY GUESSING THE FIRST NAMES OF THE PEOPLE YOU SEE OR WHAT THE NEXT PERSON WILL SAY IN A DIALOGUE.
Carry yourself with Confidence
Change your pattern —- if you always go to a particular store,change it and try another one.
LEARN TO ASK FOR DISCOUNT —- It’s not for those that are broke or the poor. It gives you the power to make personal choices.
Take good breakfast if you can.
READ MY BLOG OVER AND OVER. It will help you!
Stop contact with your down people — yea,negative friends should be dropped.
Learn to SHUT your mouth at least for few minutes. ALLOW YOUR MIND DO THE TALKING. Don’t wait for your tongue to get tired before you shut your gob.
Stop trying to multi-task —- it weakens the mind.
STRENGTHEN your Strengths — sometimes we focus much on strengthening our weaknesses when we should be helping our strengths.
Strengthen your thoughts about yourself. Help your self- image.
Do something you didn’t want to do before. This totally smashes the boundaries of your comfort zone.
Take a little nap for about 10 minutes a few times a day. It does wonders for your brain energy.
Feed your goals every day. What do you want to be? You can feed that every day. Act in-doors
TIDY HOUSE, TIDY MIND — keep your house and room well ventilated.
TRAVEL OFTEN if you can — travelling really does broaden your mind, especially if you get into new places.
Try new food if you can.
Practice deep breathing — getting plenty of oxygen in your brain is one of the keys to a healthy mind.
When you are bored, meet people, shake hands and smile. A MERRY HEART INDEED DOES GOOD MORE THAN DRUGS.
