9 ways how to change mind & refresh quickly

 

1. Enjoy music


Music has calming effect. Listening to music makes you feel comfortable and alpha wave is believed to be released more by relaxing. As there is music therapy, our mental condition and music have strong relationship.

Especially classical music has calming effect for frustration, but listening to your favorite music is most effective and refreshing. Not only calming effect, but there are many music that can make you cheerful. Enjoy music with portable music player for a short time. Recalling music in your mind is also effective enough, if you are at office or places you can’t listen to music.

 

2. Do stretches


There are sometimes you get sleepy and cannot concentrate in middle of the work. Or you are too concentrated and suffer stiff neck…If so, do some stretches to relieve tension from your body. You can do it while you sit at the chair. It is effective to avoid drowsiness, and stiff neck is relieved so you can concentrate on your work.

If you keep same posture for a long time, muscle gets tension and likely to get tired. Start with twisting body and move muscles to many directions. Especially you can feel refreshed by stretching your back, waist or under arms. Then move your shoulders and neck around and control your breathes at the end. By just doing this, you can feel refreshed. Stretching too much can hurt your body, so be careful.

 

3. Eat snacks    


Many people don’t eat snacks to avoid gaining weight, but sweet treats have soothing effect. Especially if you use brains in work, sugar is the best thing to give you energy, so eating proper amount is good.

Hunger causes slowness of thought but full stomach can cause drowsiness and distract your concentration, so don’t eat too much.

 

4. Leave the place for a while


When you are boiled down with your work or cannot get out of negative thoughts, leave where you are for a while and go to someplace else. If you were inside, going outside is recommended.

Just getting some fresh air can change your mind. Replace air in your body and get refreshed both physically and mentally. If you can’t go outside, just looking out from a window is good enough.

 

5. Meditation


Meditations may sound something religious and special, but it is the easy way of refreshing you can do in daily life. It is very easy, close your eyes and clear your mind of needless thoughts. Imagine quiet sceneries such as ocean with no one around, sound of a stream or quiet forest.

If some unnecessary thoughts come to mind, remove them out of your imagination, and try to keep calm images. Alpha wave is induced during meditation, your mind is sharpened while relaxing, and you can spend very meaningful time after meditation.

 

6. Quickly clean the desk


Don’t you have papers and things left in front of you? Put back things to where they should be and clean up the desk. As it is cleaned, you feel clean and refresh as well.

Sometimes you may find important memo in a pile of unnecessary papers, so make sure to check each thing. Your mind will be organized as well.

 

7. Control breathing


Disturbance of automatic nerve can be stabilized by controlling breathing. The basic of breathing is to inhale from nose and exhale from mouth. When doing this, expand stomach rather than lungs.

Concentrate and breathe neatly. Nerves in nose are stimulated by inhaling through nose, and you can calm down. And by controlling your body by yourself you can be confident and mental condition is stabilized. It takes only 1 or 2 minutes, but easy and very effective.

 

8. Look at favorite photos or videos


Switching your mind once is very important. Especially when you are down or feel sad, you can’t stop having negative mind and go toward bad direction. You can’t change mind and suffer more. When you are in such feeling, tell your brain totally different information.

Pictures can be kept in your desk, and videos are easily watched with smart phones. You can find funny videos, soothing ones with cats and dogs and many other kinds of videos. Be careful not to watch them for a long time, but it is recommended as a short break and switching mind.

 

9. Smile


We naturally smile if we are happy, but by forcing yourself to smile when you are tired or feel stressed, you can feel happy. You can make you feel happy anytime you want. Smile has special power to cheer up mind.

If you are not cheerful enough to laugh, just smile. You can naturally try to recall fun things and your brain starts to move toward positive direction. All illness comes from the mind, happiness comes from smile. By always trying to smile, you will be freed from difficult things.
