"Who's the Boss?" 10 Ways To Start Taking Control Part 5

10. Use Pattern Interrupts to Combat Rumination

If you find yourself ruminating, a great way to stop it is to interrupt the pattern and force yourself to do something completely different. Rumination is like hyper-focus on something negative. It's never productive because it's not rational or solution-oriented; it's just excessive worry. Try changing your physical environment - go for a walk or sit outside. You could also call a friend, pick up a book, or turn on some music.

When it comes to the corporate world, protocol is pretty much the religion. To know the things needed to do are the basics of productivity but interaction and having a steady mind can produce the best results. Of course there are also those who seem to produce their best work under extreme pressure. There is no right or wrong way of being productive as we are humans with imperfect natures. The key word however is to produce and there are no excuses for that.

7. Practice Loving, Touching & Squeezing your Family and Friends

You don't have to be an expert to know the benefits of a good hug. Positive physical contact with friends, loved ones, and even pets, is an instant pick-me-up. One research study on this subject had a waitress touch some of her customers on the arm as she handed them their checks. She received higher tips from these customers than from the ones she did not touch.

8. Increase Your Social Activity

By increasing social activity, you decrease loneliness. Surround yourself with healthy, happy people and their positive energy will affect you in a positive way.

9. Volunteer for an Organization or Help another Person

Everyone feels good after helping. You can volunteer your time, your money, or your resources. The more positive energy you put out into the world, the more you will receive in return.

4. Refrain From Using Absolutes
Have you ever told a partner "You're ALWAYS late!" or complained to a friend "You NEVER call me!"? Thinking and speaking in absolutes like 'always' and 'never' makes the situation seem worse than it is, and programs your brain into believing that certain people are incapable of delivering.

 

5. Detach From Negative Thoughts
Your thoughts can't hold any power over you if you don't judge them. If you notice yourself having a negative thought, detach from it, witness it, and don't follow it.

 

6. Squash the "ANTs"
In his book "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life," Dr. Daniel Amen talks about "ANTs" - Automatic Negative Thoughts. These are the bad thoughts that are usually reactionary, like "Those people are laughing, they must be talking about me," or "The boss wants to see me? It must be bad!" When you notice these thoughts, realize that they are nothing more than ANTs and squash them!

2. Remind Yourself of the Things You Are Grateful For

Stress and challenges do not seem quite as bad when you constantly remind yourself of the things that are right in your life. Taking just 60 seconds a day to stop and appreciate the good things will make a huge difference.

3. Look for the Proof Instead of Making Assumptions

A fear of not being liked or accepted sometimes leads us to assume that we know what others are thinking, but our fears are usually not reality. If you have a fear that a friend or family member's bad mood is due to something you did, or that your co-workers are secretly gossiping about you when you turn your back, speak up and ask them. Don't waste time worrying that you did something wrong unless you have proof that there is in fact something to worry about.

At first glance it seems that positive thinking and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) have nothing to do with one another. But many with ADD develop negative thinking patterns because they become frustrated by  challenges and frequent feelings of being overwhelmed. This negative outlook then makes it even harder  to manage those challenges and move forward.

Practicing positive thinking allows people with ADD to focus on their strengths and accomplishments; which increases happiness and motivation. This, in turn, allows those with (ADD) to spend more time making progress and less time feeling down and stuck. The following tips provide practical suggestions that you can use to shift into more positive thinking patterns:

1. Take Good Care of Yourself

It's much easier to be positive when you are eating well, exercising and getting enough rest.

3. Engage in proper exercise.

Proper exercise is good for the brain and not only for the body. The human brain needs a well-balanced life.

4. Release stress once in a while

Releasing stress is necessary to be able to clear the brain from all the difficulties and the clouds in one’s life. One must take time to get into a relaxing mood and a good night sleep.

The brain is an organ to be cherished. No individual will ever be able to live his life to the fullest if his brain is not functioning well. A brain that is cared for will result in a more active and fulfilling life.

2. Eat the right foods.

Eating the right sets of food will definitely benefit the brain. The brain is the most active part of the body. Even when one sleeps, the brain remains active and vibrant. The brain will appreciate it if one eats the right and balanced sets of food. The sad thing is that the brain is usually taken for granted when it comes to having a balanced meal or a workout because people are so focused into developing their outside looks. It’s about time that we give the brain a break.

As with any other part of the body, the human brain will wither in the future. One’s lifestyle and all other external factors will take toll against the human brain. As one grows old, the human brain will become slower in terms of functioning and rejuvenating itself. However, there are ways on how to enhance the power of the human brain as age catches up. This blog tries to give some useful tips on how to do just that.

1. Live a healthy lifestyle.

The brain is an integral part of the human anatomy. It is probably the most important organ in the body; but of course, we all know that every other organ in the body works for the others to function properly. The human brain is subject to the lifestyle of the person who owns it. If the person loves alcohol, he may not fully reap the powers of his brain. Alcohol and other dangerous substances destroy brain cells. An alcoholic will argue that, “I’ve been using only ten percent of my brain, drinking will activate the other 90% of it.” This is a total fallacy. This premonition was formulated in the 1800s and there is no truth in it. The brain is a lifetime organ, so we must preserve and protect it.

The human brain is the soul of the human nervous system. It controls involuntary activities such as respiration, digestion, and heartbeat, which are also known as automatic functions of the body. This organ also controls other conscious activities that are considered as higher order activities like reasoning, abstraction, and thought. The human brain is superior to any other brain of any other living species that are known to humankind.

The brain is also the center by which other human characteristics are defined. Creativity, for example, is much associated with the brain and so is personality. The brain lets us make decisions and define colors and smells. This organ controls every other perceived activity of the human body. However, the human brain, as strong and as invincible as it may look, is not going to stay that way forever.

Gucci Mane Denied Bond In Assault Case

Rapper Gucci Mane turned himself in to Atlanta Police last night after being wanted on aggravated assault charges. This follows an alleged incident involving a veteran who has accused Gucci of hitting him in the head with a champagne bottle. Unfortunately during Gucci's court appearance, he was denied bond. His next hearing is set to date on April 10. Read more details on what went on today during Gucci Mane's court appearance:

A magistrate judge denied bond for Mane at his 
first court appearance on Wednesday, sheriff’s 
spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said. Gucci did not 
enter a plea. His next hearing will be on 
April 10, Flanagan said. Mane’s attorney, 
Drew Findling, told Reuters he would appeal 
the denial of bond to a higher court. He said 
six witnesses interviewed by his office about 
what he described as a melee at the club did not 
pin blame on the rapper.“None of them said Gucci 
had anything to do with it,” Findling said.

We'll have to wait until next month for his next hearing to gain further details.

Optimists are healthier and live longer

Medical research has justified that simple pleasures and a positive outlook can cause a measurable increase in the body's ability to fight disease. Optimists’ health is unusually good. They age well, much freer than most people from the usual physical ills of middle age. And they get to outlive those prone to negative thoughts. So why not be an optimist today? And think positively towards a more fulfilled life.
