Taking advantage of when your brain is prepared to give you the best ideas is something successful people have been doing for hundreds of years.  Great thinkers have understood that the early “nodding off” stage of sleep, when theta waves predominate in the brain, is the best time to let the creative juices flow as well as while awakening before  getting out of bed  and doing stuff. Running through the day’s challenges early in the morning while you are still in this state (or even at night as you start to fall asleep) can yield amazing results! Theta waves are present during these times -and it takes takes some practice do do this easily and be in the positive habit that may take your productivity to new levels!!

Just as you start to become conscious in the morning, but while your eyes are closed and your brain’s still dreamy, think of the most immediate problem or task you have to face this day. Maybe it’s having a tricky conversation, writing a report, or creating a new marketing campaign. Choose only one and let the brain ruminate.If it morning, quickly record key words or write in smart phone. At night,use  pen and paper to quickly record your ideas, so that the electronic light doesn’t disturb your sleep.

Happy problem solving!

When you practice deep meditation theta waves are involved as well. I help clients learn meditation and they are accountable to me as their coach.

The following is an excerpt from the “Create Optimal Happiness & Productivity” on-line course by Eileen Lichtenstein.

How to Effectively Manage Time & Prioritize

“Are you challenged by time?

Is your time cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full?

With this lesson you can Claim your power in the midst of chaos and movement…carry your stillness with you and you will have enough time to make the important things happen. It may be because you’re doing all the C’s (low priorities on your list), not because you haven’t time, that you don’t get to do the A’s.

Time can be elusive…don’t let it slip through your fingers. Remember, as The Rolling Stones said, Time is on your side.

“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.” – Alan Lakein

“If moment by moment you can keep your mind clear, then nothing will confuse you.” – ShengYen

Managing time effectively overlaps with a few other topics, including prioritizing, goal setting and “life balance”, meditation and the assertiveness trait of saying “no” effectively.

Viewing a dance performance can transport you because it is

  • multisensual; often music is involved and sometimes props-
  • erotic
  • therapeutic in that it is out of your head- into feelings and creative spaces-

I was in audience Tilles Center (CW Post) Long Island  for Jose Limon Dance Company performance this past weekend- and I was transported!

Once in a while I found myself blogging (this) in my head and forced stop- to be able to be fully present and “out of my head” with the dance viewing experience.

I’ve always found dance to be therapeutic in the doing and the viewing…

Free Danc...

I owned a dance and exercise studio and created an audio program Moving Meditation® Fitness: A Fitness and Relaxation Program  knowing that anyone can become more focused, relaxed and happier with the inclusion of dance-movement combined with visualization and guided breath work in their fitness and stress release routines.

All you need to do is simply allow  dance and movement  to transport you!

Vacations are wonderful. No matter when or where- I am a big fan of time away with faith that it is the right time-place-people that you have arranged it with.  It is extra wonderful when you make a pact of no phones- and no or occassional computer.  Really!  Some adjustments  and maybe some extra down time- but hey isn’t that what you sign up for when its a vacation?  I’m just back from Europe, jetlagged and refreshed at the same time.  Ready to connect and reconnect.  Be here in the right time-place: now. I even handled my emergency “root canal” OK and made clear choices.Throughout your day, it’s important to take “mini-vacations”.  Take breaks throughout the work day to become centered and release stress/frustration.  Did you know that when you have no stress you are 100% more productive.  Of course, some stress is OK- and their is “good stress” too- like getting married, going on a vacation..Your body doesn’t know the difference, and the adrenalin and cortisol kick in. A long flight is a great place to practice relaxation techniques.  Afraid of flying? I have facilitated amazing turn-arounds with EFT and de-sensitiving techniques that include visualization.
Stress is cumulative; dispersing it can shift productivity and up creativity and confidence.  If you need help with this, you may contact me for a complimentary peak performance coaching consult. www.balanceandpower.com/stressmanagement.php.  My one:one and group coaching sessions are conducted via phone, skype, and in Wantagh or RVC Long Island.   I am also available to facilitate trainings in stress, anger management (I’m a certified AM specialist) and related issues via webinar and at your site.

“Highly creative people tend to display ample social adjustment, empathy, sensitivity, rationality, and open-mindedness. Further, and more directly pertinent to consumer behavior, highly creative people have been found to be excellent problem solvers. In fact, expertise at problem solving, both of a specific and generalized nature, is one of the central operational measures of creativity.” Journal of Consumer Research, Vol. 7, No. 3, p. 286

I love this. I agree with every point- do you??
