In honor of National Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month, we at Neurohealth Associates want to offer some helpful tips for overcoming a very common symptom of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
The following coupled with some brain boosting diets that we talked about a few weeks ago will go a long way in helping anyone “feeling stuck” get their motivation back as well as relieving general stress.
- Think while you walk.
According to Stanford research, walking can increase creative output by an impressive 60%. So next time you’re in a mental rut, try stepping outside for 10-15 minutes or just walk around the office to spur your own inventive ideas.
Steve Jobs’ practice of meditation encouraged his most creative thinking along with a strong sense of empathy which inspired the design of his most famous Apple products. It takes time, but meditation can change your life for the better. As Jobs says, “It’s a discipline; you have to practice it.”
- Pursue a different interest
The concept behind this practice also comes from the sage wisdom of the late Steve Jobs. It is summed up in ‘you can’t think outside the box if you never leave the box.’ Step out of the routine and allow yourself to discover new things. Study businesses, people, and/or hobbies that are different to your own. Read a book that interests you even if it has nothing to do with your current problem(s). You never know how one sentence can spark an idea of your own.
