The Science of Positive Thinking: A blog post with tips on how to improve your mental health.
Ten years ago, our mental health was overlooked. We were taught to sacrifice mental well-being for physical health, but science has proven that it’s unhealthy to do so. If you want to stay productive, happy and healthy, you should practice mindfulness, which is the practice of paying attention and awareness to your thoughts and feelings. Mindfulness can be applied to any task, but it’s helpful when you’re working on a project. It helps you to focus on the task at hand and on your mental health. Research has proven that mindfulness has a positive effect on productivity. In addition, mindfulness helps you to be more creative. You may find that mindfulness is easier to practice when you’re in nature, so you can take advantage of it when you have time.

The problem with productivity is that it can be difficult to achieve. Everyone has their own personal method of getting things done. Some people may be able to get things done by avoiding distractions, while others may only have time to focus on a project for a short period of time. For those who are struggling to achieve greater levels of productivity, it might be time to start thinking about mindfulness. Studies have shown that a mindful attitude is essential for a productive workday. By taking a moment to pause, take a deep breath and reflect, you will be able to maintain a healthy mindset in the face of distractions. For example, if you are working on a project and you find yourself distracted by your friend’s call, you can take a moment to pause and focus on what you are doing. In the future, you can also use this technique to help maintain productivity when you work with a team.
Mindfulness is all about being aware of your thoughts and feelings in the moment, rather than letting your mind wander. When you’re working on a task and letting your mind wander, you’re not being mindful. And being unmindful can be detrimental to your productivity. When you’re mindful, you’re more productive because you’re in a state of active attention. You’re focused on the work in front of you, not letting your thoughts wander to something else. You’re letting go of negative unproductive thoughts rather than dwelling on them, and you’re actively focusing on something productive.
When you’re mindful, your brain receives signals that you’re safe. As a result, the part of your brain responsible for fight or flight (also known as the ‘primitive’ or ‘reptilian’ brain) shuts off, and the part responsible for problem solving (also known as the ‘rational’ or ‘human’ brain) turns on.
The result – Problem solving becomes easier while signals from stress hormones in our body decrease. Eliminating stress decreases the negative thoughts which mindfulness wins. It just takes a little practice to achieve mindfulness. Start today in creating a productive healthy life of mindfulness.
Until our minds meet again. Be safe out there. Remember Everyday Minds Matter 🦋💜
