Strange title I know, but I stand by it totally.
Thinking is an active exercise. You use thoughts to solve problems, work out answers to questions, plan events and to remember things. However, most of the time we have unwanted thoughts or repetitive thoughts that we don’t need.
The reason why these extra thoughts occur is due to the habitual nature of thinking and also because our brain never gets a rest. We watch TV, read books, do crosswords and other such tasks to relax. But this isn’t relaxing your brain, it is asking it to work even harder.
At the end of a busy day you want to relax … you also should relax your mind too.
If not then your brain never rests, allows fatigue to set in at a mental level and even a physical level. We get more stressed which can even lead to poor health. With time your brain will tire and therefore the old age dilemmas of forgetfulness can set in.
It is no different to if you decided to never rest physically … to be always moving … eventually muscles would tire, spasms occur, pain will develop.
So unless you are actively thinking you shouldn’t think. Your head should be clear of thoughts and as a result you will find energy increases, problem solving is easier, creativity get more creative and so much more.
Here’s a little exercise to try … say to yourself that for the next 2 minutes you will think of nothing at all. Then watch to see what happens…
If you find that your mind goes like crazy, the many thoughts, stresses and worries enter your mind, then you know that you do not have a clear and calm mind. But you can train it to work that way simply. It just takes a few minutes and it’s fun too.
