The brain is a strange organ. It can build us and break us our brain is capable of a lot more than we give it credit for. Speaking of power, we all crave for it, right? Hell yes!
10. Keeping more personal things on your work desk makes you more productive.
The thought of having a tiny part of your life in your control improves your productivity by 32 percent.
9.Sleeping for just two hours can make you feel refreshed.
The schedule is basically called the Uberman sleep schedule. The schedule consists of taking six 20-30-minute power naps every four hours during the day. This is how one can save a lot of time.
8. Type of personality can be told by the choice of the shoes.
Anxious, clingy people prefer new and well-maintained footwear to ease their bundle of nerves.
People who wear practical shoes tend to be relatively agreeable.
Calm, collected folks seem to get a kick out of wearing shoes that look uncomfortable.
7.You can dream whatever you want to dream.
Keeping a journal of your dreams is the first step. Our brain recognizes certain patterns that only occur in a dream and if you write them you can recall them easily and think about what you want to dream right before you sleep.
6. Listening to music makes you stronger.
The study says that people are able to hold heavy weights for longer when listening to music than when they’re standing in silence.
Music activates certain neurological pathways that tend to involve the nucleus, which deals with two neurotransmitters: dopamine and serotonin. Both of these tend to affect mood rather strongly.
5. If you touch anything, it makes you want that thing more.
In humans, touch is all about mind control. If you touch anything for a while you get attached to it. The reason is that touching or holding something unconsciously creates a sense of ownership. Interestingly, this mindset can even overrule our opinion on whether or not we like or dislike something.
4. Want to remember things? Write them down, even if you won’t read them after.
Writing by hand forces another part of your brain into action to help out with memorization. So, go get a pen and write, and watch your score improve.
3. Making hand gestures helps in visualizing your problems.
With just using your hands to represent any problem can help your mind separate and organize ideas. It helps you visualize the idea. The more complex the idea, the more help you need visualizing it.
2. We are the most productive at the times of the day we hate the most.
A study conducted by the Department of Psychological Science at Albion College and the Department of Psychology at Michigan State University, researchers discovered that our “non-optimal” times are actually ideal for tasks that involve problem-solving. Apparently, these non-optimal times are better for creativity and group-related work.
1. Maximize your mind’s performance by distracting your self.
The trick is to distract yourself by studying something totally different from whatever you’re trying to learn. Your brain then makes an extra effort to permanently store the original information. Distraction forces you to engage in proccessing,” says Benjamin Storm, a UCLA researcher.
