Waking Up Your Mind

by 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.  


In order to change this dynamic, we would need to shock our system.  A lot like the Ice Bucket challenges a couple of years ago.  They were so popular because it was shocking to see, and participate in, actively having a bucket of ice dumped on your head.  Our minds need a similar wake up call.  For some it could be as simple as doing something you never could have imagined, even if it means doing it alone.  For others it could be having a conversation with someone you wouldn't normally talk to or pursuing a goal you could've never imagined pursuing.  We don't have to skydive or cliff jump in order to wake ourselves up. Just being open to all the amazing possibilities and people around us can be a wake up call all by itself.
