Using Brain Games For Relaxation

So I have taken up playing brain games at lumosity.com lately. I’m enjoying it and getting back into using my ipod touch for learning things. I am training my memory, speed, flexibility, and problem-solving skills. Or at least I think I am. Either way, it’s games and I like games and I like competing with others and I want to be in the toppest of tiers when it comes to comparing my scores on the games.

I like learning how to be better at the games.

I learn by finding ways to improve and things to cease doing that are a detriment to my success.

A lot of the games include a limit of time.

That limit of time can be perceived as pressure. The pressure can be felt as shortness of breath or tightness.

It can also be exciting and fun.

It depends on the state of mind.

My goal is not only to play for great scores, but to do what feels best and works best. Being relaxed and focused and excited works better than being anxious and worried that I may fail.

We have a choice in how we experience things.

Repetitive and simple games with infinite levels of potential difficulty provide opportunity for mastery.

The game I play in the video is called Raindrops. In it, math problems fall down like raindrops and you must solve before they hit the water at the bottom of the screen.

Eventually way more raindrops will fall than you can possibly solve so you can try to solve as many as possible, but you will lose.

This in itself should relax you to some extent since if you were expecting to “win” or “live forever” you will not get this, so why be frustrated about not getting what you couldn’t get?

Frustration happens from not getting something you think you deserve or expect.

Otherwise, why not be frustrated about not being able to fly?

Clearly flying would be awesome, you should want awesome things, and so you should want to fly. If you don’t get what you want, then you should be frustrated, right?

Wrong!

So, given that you won’t be able to fly, or solve all the puzzles in the world, while you’re playing you might as well either do your best or do what’s the most fun, because either way you won’t “beat the game”.

Use the game to help you grow.

Use the game to help you learn how you think and how you can innovate.

It’s surprising what kind of innovations can come from what are seemingly completely simple repetitive games.

Here’s a trick someone else found:

Once there are too many problems, he just types random numbers knowing that they will solve some of the equations and then tries to put in the answer for the “sun” which is a special problem that will burst all the problems on the screen.

He managed to get over 23,000,000 points using this method. Thoroughly beating my 14,000.

If the goal was to get the most points, he would clearly be the winner. I can imagine someone trying really hard to get to 30,000 points by actually trying to solve each equation as opposed to just throwing up answers, when random answers actually is the superior strategy.

You might argue that random numbers doesn’t teach you quick mental math (and you’re right), but if the point is to beat the game without cheating, then the random answer plus solving for the “sun” method is superior and perhaps the best.

It reminds me of the idea of whether you’d like to be right (stubborn) or win (flexible). Having a clear goal of beating the game ought to teach you flexibility in your actions since you will realize that doing the same things again and again will not yield different results.

  1. Learn how to be more relaxed and you will improve.
  2. Learn how to be more focused and you will improve
  3. Commit more useful facts to memory and you will improve
  4. Analyze your mechanics (are you sitting right, are you looking at the screen, are you using a mouse etc…) and you may find ways to improve
  5. Discover if the sound effects help or hurt you
  6. Discover if music is helpful
  7. See if your inner thoughts are focused or if you’re prone to distraction easily

These are all things you can apply during the games.

So why share this on my vision and relaxation website… ?

Because It’s valuable to get tangible external results that are reflective of your current mood/mindset/mental facilities.

Do you find yourself being able to be fully relaxed during a game? Maybe you are not at first but after a few tries and just focusing on the game and being relaxed, you find that you succeed to do so.

Learning to transition from being tense playing a game to being relaxed or excited playing a game is a very useful transformation.

Think about it.

When teaching people about how to be more relaxed, most of the time I’m trying to teach people about how to relax… when they think and feel that they ought to be relaxed!

I’m not trying to teach people how to relax while their house is on fire.

The problem of being stressed or tense, is that you feel stressed and tense when you don’t think that you should be.

You’re just with family. You’re just with friends. You’re just home alone.

AND YOU’RE TENSE

You’re just sitting in your chair..

AND YOU’RE STRESSED

Yet, you are watching tv or youtube. You’re chatting on facebook. You’re surfing the net.

So why should you be tense or stressed?

Well, it’s likely a subconscious breathing and movement (or restricted movement) pattern, and games that can excite you or potentially stress you out and alter your breathing are a perfect way for you to consciously enter the state of stress, BUT with the ability of being able to fully process your feelings since it is just you and the game.

We’ll talk more about the difference between game stress and real life stress and how learning how to process and overcome game stress will help you not only prevent real life stress, but help you process it, and deal with it as it arises in more beneficial winning ways.

Until then, don’t stress about a little rain. A little rain might do you a lot of good.

 

The greatest obstacles for healing are distraction and lack of information (or misinformation).

The greatest obstacles for healing are distraction and lack of information (or misinformation).

The reason why lack of information or misinformation are obstacles to healing is obvious since if you believe that something that doesn’t work will work, then you will waste time and resources going on the wrong path, and if you don’t know what will work because you don’t have the information, then you might not just find yourself doing the right thing through intuition or trial and error.

Would you intuitively start drinking a special herbal tea for a specific ailment that the herb has been shown to work for, if you had never heard of the herb and it doesn’t grow locally either?

Probably not.

Would you remove your glasses and cover your eyes with your palms and relax for 10-20 minutes in that position in order to improve your vision?

Possibly!

The reason is because palming might feel good and natural, when you pay attention to your body and what it wants to do.

I know that when I survey people about what they “feel” like doing when they suffer from vision symptoms they frequently reveal they are tired and wish to close their eyes.

Keeping your eyes open, while your body indicates the need to close them, seems like a pretty likely conflict that could lead to dysfunctional visual results. Lo and behold, when people start letting their eyes close when they feel like closing them instead of fighting themselves, it’s an altogether massive benefit for the individual since not only is their visual experience freed from the constant nag of having tired eyes that want to close, but they are likely no longer tired while awake!

So here I’m telling you that improving your vision may be really simple. Let your body guide you to find what feels best for you and when you’re feeling best your vision will be too.

It is tried and true.

But that’s not what everyone tells you.

Skeptics on wikipedia will tell you that the Bates Method is a crock from a quack. Many optometrists, opticians, and opthalmologists will tell you it’s impossible to improve vision (though they’ll also tell you that there are ways to make your vision worse, which makes you wonder, if you can make it worse, why can’t you make it better?). Now despite the fact that not everyone agrees that you can’t improve, myself of course someone who does not since I personally improved my eyesight dramatically and no longer use glasses or contacts whatsoever and have aided others on their path to do the same, despite the fact that you may have some sense that it is possible…

It doesn’t mean you’re applying yourself to the realization of this goal.

Maybe you think that yes relaxation could very well lead to improved vision.

OR

That yes if you let yourself close your eyes whenever they’re tired or you got more outdoor time without glasses or contacts that you’d have better site…

OR

That when you have the time you should spend it really deepening your baseline sense of relaxation and relieve yourself of chronic tension (whether psychological or physiologically rooted).

BECAUSE

You are either distracted, don’t have the info, or are misinformed.

Now “misinformed” is an interesting word because it could just be that you’re lacking motivation/belief or the habit of applying the information positively.

Do you think that you would gain from sleeping or resting when tired?

Do you think you could become more emotionally free and centered if you would process your feelings?

Do you think you can learn to be more in touch with how you feel and less stuck in your mind?

Do you think that putting in time towards improving your mind and body is something you should do daily?

You probably say yes yes yes yes.

And if you said no, you probably would like to be saying yes.

So what can you do?

PUT IN THE TIME DOING SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE AND PULLING YOU TOWARDS YOUR GOALS

Now I know from personal experience it’s easy to be distracted.

Taking care of your physical needs can seem painful because you may be avoiding your pain in the first place…

BUT

If you realize now that there is a way out of the pain.

That you can GAIN from the PAIN.

Then all you need is to get your mindset right and to learn how to put in more time and attention on your personal betterment.

And distraction really is the obstacle because what is distraction?

Dis-traction means losing traction. Distraction means moving away from traction.

Traction is being on path. When you have traction you are going forward or you are solid where you are against forces pulling you away from where you need to be.

Distraction is also the obvious obstacle because if you CAN be distracted then you obviously have free time and extra unused resources.

You can breathe poorly, but you can’t really be distracted from breathing itself. If something is stopping you from actually breathing at a certain point all your attention will be on breathing and getting free of the obstruction to it.

You can only be distracted when you CAN be distracted.

Granted, distraction can cost you millions. It can cost you everything. You can be distracted while driving. You can be distracted while working. Well, are you really working when you’re distracted? Maybe.

But the point is this, if you identify as someone who is distracted on a daily basis or has plenty of “distractions” then take this as a sort of confirmation.

“If I have been distracted, I had time to waste.

Since I do not wish to be the type of person who wastes time, I will use my time to gain traction in the areas of life in which I wish to move forward or remain solid.”

The thought in quotation marks above is a nice piece of in-formation to fix your mindset a bit.

Stay focused on your goals and put that focus into action.

Now I’m going to tell you to buy my audio programs.

Buy my audio programs.

They are easy to use while remaining in the state that you are.

Watch my videos (they’re all free currently).

If you like my videos, consider how shifting from video to audio will help you focus on yourself.

Videos are nice but if you watch them you tend to be stuck on a screen.

Audios let you close your eyes and focus on your own in-vironment (environment spelled all new-agey).

When you listen to the 20-50 tracks where I either guide you through a specific process or share with you my experiences of the process of attending and healing, you will find yourself following along with ease.

You won’t have to be focused in order to use these tracks.

You don’t need to have some monthly commitment or some kind of new-years-resolution type mindset.

No.

You just listen to them like they’re anything else, but realize that you’re gonna get a bit more out of them than the average Sitcom episode or scrolling through facebook aimlessly or whatever it is.

It’s easy. You just listen to as many a day as you feel like, and still using the same passive mindset where you are just taking in information, you gain the benefits of:

BEING more focused

Being more at ease

Being more capable to navigate through physical pains

Being more comfortable navigating through psychological issues

Having an easier time to just pay attention to your body

Having an easier time just paying attention to feelings

Finding yourself naturally stretching without needing to put in any effort

Finding yourself naturally adjusting and improving your breathing and posture

Finding yourself understanding your energetic desires more deeply and learning how to breathe life into them.

It really is that simple.

Put in the time, get the information, and conquer misinformation.
