The importance of interrupting patterns and stimulating the brain with natural activities for mental health
Do you sometimes feel stuck?
Admittedly I do, but I can get myself unstuck effortlessly and swiftly.
I have been using pattern interruption and brain stimulation to design my happiness. But unfortunately, my active, well-educated, and disciplined brain still constantly produce nonsense thoughts if I don’t interrupt them deliberately. I learned to stop rumination.
The brain defaults to creating thoughts as a natural survival mechanism. So, I accept the situation. But I don’t surrender to my recurring thoughts as they are not real even though they are useful signals to detect risks for my survival.
I introduce ten proven and practical techniques in this article. These techniques are so simple and easy that anyone can do. We don’t need a therapist, coach, or mentor to lead us.
These are self-instantiated and natural techniques that we can do by ourselves without being told by authority figures. We don’t have to spend money, and no need for a prescription. They don’t take too much of our time either. And none of them would hurt us.
