It’s not just the body that needs rest. Often we rest the body and leave the mind working (watching TV). When the mind is rested, solutions often come “out of the blue” without a slightest effort!
Practice: Set you mind free
Stick to: 2 minutes whenever you need a breakthrough
If you have been grappling with a problem and are not getting anywhere near a solution, try this:
- Walk away from the problem (physically if possible, to another room or outside even)
- Move the focus of the mind away from the problem and onto something completely different, even something as simple as making a cup of tea or looking out of the window people watching.
- Go back physically and mentally to the problem.
Has anything shifted?
Practice regularly 🙂
