i'm sure some of you are aware of brain hacks. i'll share a few of my own personal favorites with you.
if you feel nervous, one way to change your thinking is to take a small object and toss it back and forth from hand to hand, supposedly when people
feel nervous or panicked its because there brain is locked into that state and supposedly this unlocks it, i dunno about the science behind this but
it has worked for me
another is if you feel emotionally unbalanced, whatever the cause, be it stress, anger etc. you can do something that involves logic, such as solving
math problems, or playing a game of chess this will switch your brain from its emotional state to its logical state, supposedly its impossible to
sustain bad feelings when you do something that is strictly logical
the last is my personal favorite, it involves a bit of psychology (i hope ya'll don't mind). basically this one takes some time, but it's
definitely worth it. it's a trick to cure nervousness, stage fright, fear and unconfidence etc. what you do is whenever you feel good, or basically
the opposite of the feeling you want to avoid, you associate it with a unique gesture. for example if you are unconfident, whenever you feel good and
confident do something that's not a normal body gesture, like wrapping your index finger and your thumb around your wrist (just an example, but you
can use this one), and repeat this every time you feel confident. then when the time comes and you have to face your fear, if you feel it creeping
in, do your gesture and feelings of confidence as well as past memories of when you felt confident (those times when you did the gesture) will rush
in. as i said this one takes a little time, but it's not hard to put into practice and it does work.
hope that ya'll liked these and will use them!
if you have any, please share! i would love to read them!
