It has been proven that the brain can only think of one thing at any time. Some would argue that they can think of a few things at once, but they would be deceiving themselves. Scientists have shown that the brain has excellent ability to switch between thoughts at very high speed, but it can only once have one thought instantly. People who meditate have known this for centuries. They have understood that if you train your mind to focus on one thing to exclude another thought, it will be impossible to think of anything else and the brain really gets a rare rest. The brain does not rest when we sleep because it is trying to sense the function of the previous day and put it in some sort of order.
This has a significant impact and one of the leaders of the research around this issue is Herbert Benson MD, director of the Benson Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at the General Hospital in Massachusetts, USA. Benson wrote the famous book The Relaxation Response in 1975, which has now sold over four million copies. Benson studied the effects of meditation and relaxation throughout the world for almost four decades and even provided assistance to Tibetan monks. What Benson seems to have shown in many ways is that the relaxation achieved through meditation has more to do because the brain can only think of one thing at a time than all the varieties of meditation present throughout the world.
Benson has written plenty of books since the 1970s, including promoting his holiness. The Dalai Lama book MindScience and Benson's recent 2003 book The Breakout Principle is probably the most important yet. In it he exposes scientific findings that add to the principle that the brain is only able to think of one thing at a time. He has discovered, and constantly measured in a laboratory, that when the brain focuses on peaceful thinking or a field or task for just ten minutes or so, the human body produces what it calls which prevents the effects of any adrenaline build-up caused by anxiety or stress. It is a scientific fact and has been constantly measured under strict research conditions.
We could all hear saying once or another, Go and take a break and cool! but what Benson has done is to physically prove what happens inside our body when we take a break. Benson emphasizes that stressed businesses, or anyone suffering from stress or anxiety, can achieve a high level of relaxation by simply pause in just ten minutes and think about something peaceful that takes up 100% of their thinking processes that do not leave space for any other thoughts.
If employers worldwide truly and truly want to reduce stress, reduce absenteeism and increase productivity, they might need to consider being a little innovations and preventive to prevent workers from interrupting ten minutes and to. After all, many senior international leaders take time to reflect on the modern day. What's good for the goose …. as they say.
It could almost be as employers encourage workers to take a break and get a shot of nitric oxide so they can work better the day – not like putting gasoline into a motor vehicle. In the offense, Benson points out that people could participate in reading poetry, knitting, meditation, yoga and starting out the window of the clouds that roll or look at the natural environment of a video in the workplace. Something that is peaceful and unrelated to what causes them stress. Richard Branson Virgin Airlines, as well as Qantas Airlines in Australia and others, have recognized the importance of relaxation machines, for example, and have used them for some time now for passengers to look for relaxation or stress reduction or just to calm the nerves of nervous flights and with All accounts seem to be working and very popular with passengers.
It seems that these employers will start knitting needles or books about poems in the near future, but it is clearly possible, considering the success of airlines, that the day might be closer than we already know when a workplace PC, laptop and manager The MP4 player will contain a collection of digital relaxation videos that provide almost instant relaxation of demand.
Of course, it may be a matter of course that such activity might be a cure for curing stress reduction and stressful neglect at the workplace, or could it change our work in a lot of relaxed hippies? Certainly with strong evidence that digital relaxation seems to work in large cases, it seems likely that public entities will at least wish to access access to this type of measure to reduce stress in the near future.
Personally, I'm sure that in the foreseeable future, while everyone needs to be in their job more than ever in this terrible credit, these usually people will appreciate their work more than ever as thoughts and hearts begin to be responsive to the possibility of using meditation methods to get a good job without falling down because of stress.
