People of the 21st century suffer from a great disease, and it’s not cancer. It’s the constant tiredness and stress they feel, from the moment they get up until the moment they get back to bed. Some can’t even have a restful sleep and stay awake all night long thinking about their problems.
Researchers have shown in psychology that by monitoring very sensitive brain waves we can actually pick up these waves before they become a thought. They originate somewhere in our mind and they travel to our awareness until they become thoughts...It’s something that science hasn’t even worked out yet and it’s really quite amazing. Many researchers have focused in on the absurdity of this.
Fiona Lewis and Dale Elliot have united in a new podcast featured on Mumpreneurs Online where they try to explain this lack of sleep and to find the root of this constant stream of stress people are receiving.
Dale Elliot has been studying this situation for a while and he called it the ‘mind noise’. The entire concept revolves around the idea that people have to be present and that they do not have to let themselves be taken away by thoughts that are not related to the present. The ‘mind noise’ is a constant flux of thinking which still goes on even if people generally have well defined goals in their minds.
This happens particularly because of the hectic lives people are compelled to live. Ms Lewis offers as an example the impact of today’s media on people’s lives: “The amount of marketing messages that are reaching our brains on a daily basis compared to 5,10,20,30 years ago and the many thousands of marketing messages that are now being shoved into our brains and even complicating that mind noise even further”, she says, “it’s no wonder that so many of us are walking around feeling stressed and distracted and finding it difficult to be present in whatever we’re meant to be doing”.
Fiona Lewis suggests some techniques which can be used in order to avoid being disturbed by the ‘mind noise’ released by our brains and Dale further develops on these ideas. Ms Lewis and Mr Dale work together in order to provide listeners with solutions that work and that have been proven to work – because Ms Lewis tried Dale’s techniques for herself and she is now passing the information to her three children.
"The small things that you’ve shared with me have not only helped me in my relationships with my children (I’m finding that I’m not losing it as much, I’m keeping calm or I’m able to communicate better with them and they’re responding to that too), but the other side of that is because I’m now more present in what I’m doing in my work I’m a lot more productive and I’m not being as easily distracted. Now I’m very aware that I need to stay present with the task at hand and because of that I’m getting through so much more. I’m sure that the implications go even broader than that as well.”
“What he’s going to share with you today is a little bit about what he shared with me that day we met.”, days Ms Lewis. “It revolves around the concept of being present. I’ve applied it not only to my business life but it has also had an incredible impact on how I am as a mother.”
