Waking Up Your Mindby EnRichment Place Clinicians on 04/11/16
Have you ever driven somewhere that you've gone multiple times and once you arrived you realized that you don't remember anything about the drive itself?You were basically on autopilot and your mind had shut off from all other possibilities. Many of us suffer with this malady in other situations but don't notice. We go through our normal daily routines with few variations. We get up, turn on the coffee pot, get the kids off to their destination or let the dog out. We go through these steps in the exact same manner as we've always done them and things seldom stray too far from the norm. As a result, our minds are asleep and not open to new possibilities, different options, or new challenges. We are in a rut. This rut affects our ability to set and reach new goals. It inhibits our vision for ourselves and confines our thinking. We are trapped in our zombie-ish state. Neither asleep nor fully awake.
