Just like muscles in the body, the brain can also be flabby or toned. The brain needs targeted attention in order to achieve that mental focus we only here about in movies. Here are five mental exercises used by military personnel to assist in conditioning the cerebral core: The basic mental push-up: 1. Sit with an upright posture, eyes closed or loosely focused on the ground in front of you. 2. Do a quick mental scan of your body, from head to feet, becoming aware of any areas of tension or discomfort-- not necessarily to make it go away, just to see if it lessens by bringing attention to it. 3. Focus your attention on the physical sensation of where your bottom makes contact with the ground or your chair. 4. When you realize your attention has drifted, and it will -- usually within a few seconds -- bring it back to the sensation of contact. 5. Every time your mind wanders and you bring it back, that counts as one rep. The inner and outer shuttle (This exercise builds from the basic mental push-up.) 1. Begin by focusing your attention on your main point of contact with the ground. 2. Pay attention to the moment when your concentration locks onto that sensation. 3. Now deploy your focus to any specific sound around you the hum of a computer or refrigerator, for example. 4. Once you feel your concentration has landed firmly On that sound, shift back to YOUr contact point. This is the shuttle, shifting your attention back and forth from the inward to something outward. As you find your attention wandering, bring it back and cominue. 5. Add variety to this exercise by shuttling between any of your five senses. Mindfulness with breathing 1..Sit with your back straight. 2. Focus on your breathing. 3. Target your attention on whatever part of your breathing is. felt most prominently. It could be the feel of the air moving through the nostrils or the rise and fall of your chest or belly. , 4. As your mind wanders, recognize what has happened and bring it back to your breath. Mindful movement 1. Stand with your arms at your sides. 2. Slowly move your .arms out to the sides and up, clasping your hands above your head. The movement should take about 20 seconds. 3. Notice the micro movement of the arms as they go up, tracking the way the sensatioias change. Notice the heat, tingling, soreness, coolness, whatever it is you're feeling in your arms as the stretch continues. 4. Slowly bring your arms back down again and repeat, continuously refocusing on those physical sensations as your attention drifts. all these.exercises.for 3-5- s each.. ARRZVAL!
