Problems are usually just a temporary hitch looking for a solution. That’s also a pretty healthy way to think of problems or hassles that you come across day to day.
There’s usually a simple solution too. It just might take a little time to come up with it. Our brain can easily get overwhelmed if stressed by something, which can make seeing even the simplest solution strangely difficult.
So instead of feeling stressed about it, just write the problem down in a notebook, and leave the thought there.
This may sound a little strange, but what this does is take away the stress of needing to come up with an immediate solution. It helps you to stop actively thinking about it. This system of attacking your problems leaves your subconscious brain (the part that works while you sleep) to mull things over and gradually come up with more creative solutions. This is particularly effective overnight. Treat it as a bit of a game – write your problem down just before you sleep and not only will it help you to sleep without worrying about it, but your brain will quietly work away on the problem and you will quite likely wake up in the morning with some ideas on how to fix the problem. That’s the amazing power you can unleash by playing little games with your brain.
You can apply simple systems like this to many tasks in life. There’s a system for everything from winning at games such as netball to winning other games like the lottery – e.g. just look at this Winslips lottery system review (OK, that last one might be stretching things just a little bit – luck is really the biggest problem you’ll face when it comes to winning lotto games – but you can find lots of lottery systems out that do claim to help you. They can’t all be wrong!).
So next time you hit a problem, don’t feel stressed, just let this simple system empower your brain to find it’s own solution. You’ll be amazed how effective this can be.
In fact, you might have heard your wise old grandparents say “just sleep on it, things will look different in the morning” – now you know why there’s a very good reason for saying that.
So give those problems more time, just accept them and live with them for a while. It’s just a part of normal life.
