Sleeping On A Difficult Problem Helps You Get The Answer
What Your Brain Is Actually Doing While You Are Fast Asleep?
While you are sleeping your brain does not. We tend to think of sleep as a time when the mind and body shuts down or it’s just a waste of time. No its not. It’s actually the state of blissful and serene calmness. Sleep is an active period in which a lot of important processing, restoration, and strengthening occurs. Sleep helps our brains to access information we possess but that is not initially brought to mind in the waking hours. Therefore our brain never sleeps from the time you came out of the womb till the time you will leave this world.
Stop Whining And Let Your Brain Take Some Rest
Sometimes we come across a problem or maybe a puzzle game we have playing and spend hours figuring out the possible solutions but just end up clueless and on top of that getting all drained and exhausted and cranky. But what we are doing is just wasting all our precious time and energy without being productive. The result is usually ending up irritated and eventually finishing one big tub of ice cream! But still remain on square one.
Clash Of Brain And Inner Self
Let me share my one personal experience with you, and I bet most of you will relate to it.
ME: I need to find a solution to this problem ASAP!
BRAIN: Just take a nap and relax.
ME: N0! You don’t anything how can I sleep when I am neck deep into this problem.
BRAIN: No need to get stressed. I’ll take care of it.
ME: Ugh! No matter how much more hours it takes I will find a solution.
BRAIN: Do as I say. BELIEVE ME.
What you need to do fellas is. Listen to you brain and Believe!
What Actually Does Sleeping Do? And Why You Should Listen To Your Brain
Sleeping will enhance your mind’s self-communication. Your brain when at rest will be more productive as it can focus on the solutions more effectively. Your subconscious mind while sleeping does wonders for you. Because there is no interference from the conscious mind, the subconscious mind will not have to deal with any external stimuli, it gets in the waking hours so it is free and thus, it can use all its resources and potential to solve your problems. That’s why sometimes the most productive thing you can do is to hit that snooze button and go to sleep.
Because We All Love Getting Evidences
This theory even has evidences in history when great mathematicians found an answer to a tough formula in their sleep or when a world-renowned painter saw illustrations and ideas about his next painting in his dream. Nobel Prize laureate Otto Loewi dreamed about the experiment that would prove his idea that nerve impulses are chemically transmitted. Frankenstein author Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin hit on the idea for the book after experiencing a vision in his dream.
Be A Dreamer
This is true. Your subconscious mind is solving and interpreting all the solutions to your problems. And through your dream it shows us. What are dreams? They are basically illustrations or an episode made up of instances, sound, people or even sensations. So you can actually get an idea about solving your problem in your dream. Or when you get up in the morning pop! You can get a solution in your mind.
Take A Chill Pill And Get In Bed Fellas
It may be seem difficult at first to leave an unsolved problem and get into bed with that restless mind. But believe me that’s the best thing you can do for yourself. The next time you come back home from a long tiring day with unsolved problems circling in your head just get into the covers for a nice long bedgasm! And you would be amazed to experience for yourself the power of sleep.
So when next time your mom is a throwing tantrum on you for sleeping some extra hours. Just proudly tell her, “Mom I’m just getting solutions to some problems”
