  9. 9. posititude Dec 14 9 How to Develop Brain Power? The Brain is the most important part of Human Body. Main function of the brain is to receive information from all parts of the body, interpret that information and guide the respective part. All the sense orders send the information in the form of odor, light, sound and pain. The Brain also help to perform vital operations of the body like breading, releasing the hormones and enzymes. The Brain is divided into four sections. Which are further divided into smaller parts. Each part handle their respective functions. Main parts are - a) The Cerebrum is the largest part of the Brain. It handles memory, speech, the senses, emotional response, and more. b) The cerebellum is below and behind the cerebrum and is attached to the brain stem. It control motor function, the body’s balance, and its ability to interpret information sent to the brain by the eyes, ears and other sensory organs. c) The Brain stem functions include respiration, blood pressure, some reflexes and the changes that happen in the body during what is called the “Fight or Flight “ response. d) The diencephalon inside the cerebrum above the brain system, is responsible for sensory function, food intake control and the body’s ability to sleep. Brain is made up of neurons and through nerves communication happens between the different parts of the body. As per psychological, brain is divided into Right and left brain. Each part perform different activities. In general, the left hemisphere is dominant in language: processing what you hear and handling most of the duties of speaking. It's also in charge of carrying out logic and exact mathematical computations. When you need to retrieve a fact, your left brain pulls it from your memory.
  10. 10. posititude Dec 14 10 The right hemisphere is mainly in charge of spatial abilities, face recognition and processing music. It performs some math, but only rough estimations and comparisons. The brain's right side also helps us to comprehend visual imagery and make sense of what we see. It plays a role in language, particularly in interpreting context and a person's tone. The brain carefully balances and assigns control of certain functions to each side. It is all nature's way of ensuring that the brain ultimately splits up tasks to maximize efficiency. Most people are right-hand dominant which is actually controlled by the left side of the brain. Your Brain is a muscle, therefore you need to do regular exercise. Everyone should maintain the health of one’s brain so that they can use it’s power to the fullest. By following tips you can improve the fitness of the brain and make it more powerful. 1) Play Puzzles – You should use the brain to think on word or number puzzles. This will compel the brain to use its respective part to participate in that activity. By using the brain in these kind of calculations we keep it active and awake. If We don’t do this kind of activities, then the left part of the brain will become weak. 2) Maintain the Social Circle. By keeping in touch with your old friends, you keep all the memories alive. You remember their home address, telephone numbers, birthdays, anniversary days, family members name and their other particulars. This keep the brain active and powerful.
  11. 11. posititude Dec 14 11 3) Don’t Use Calculators - While calculating mileage of your car, your tax liability, budgets and expenses, sales figures, calculating marks in examinations, never use calculator. Use your brain and practice to calculate in brain. This empowers your brain. By repeated practice your brain’s power and capacity increases. 4) Develop new Skills – Doing routine jobs and task makes your brain monotonous. It become accustomed of doing the same job. As soon as any new task is given, brain irritates and don’t opens up easily. Therefore out of routine you should develop new skills like writing articles, reading books, gardening, learn music and many others. Come our of monotonous routine. This makes the brain active and receptive to new challenges of the life. 5) Practice remembering birthdays, house numbers, list of grocery items to be bought from the shop, etc., 6) Eat brain healthy food and do regular Exercise – By doing regular exercise you ensure adequate blood and oxygen flow in the Brain. Include food which are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, high in antioxidants and low in bad fats is good for the brain as well as for the rest of the body. 7) Use memory aids – Write down all the activities you have to do on a piece of paper. Use Cards to remember things. While parking your vehicle, park near to a landmark like tree, light post. Before going to sleep arrange your office bag, keep it on a place along with your watch, valet, car keys, office keys etc., so that in morning you don’t forget them. Before going to sleep set the alarm. In office also keep writing appointments on the calendar. 8) Think Positive - As we have mentioned earlier also, the Brain is made-up of neutrons. Stress & anxiety kills existing brain neurons and also stop new neurons from being created. Research has proved that positive thinking, especially in the future tense, speeds up the creation of cells and dramatically reduces stress & anxiety. Try and get a handle on negative thoughts particularly of past happenings and make an effort to replace them with positive ones.
  12. 12. posititude Dec 14 12 How to Develop Will Power? I can remember my mother scolding me in the morning, when I delay in leaving my bed. She always use to say “You can’t do any thing in your life if you don’t make your will power strong”. First of all, decide whether you want to get up or not. Whatever you choose is going to build up your day. If you decide not to get up early then you will be starting your day late and will be loosing those precious hours of the day, which a valuable and refreshing. And if you choose to get up early, then you will be lucky enough to be gifted with those precious hours ……these words always roam in mind every day in the morning. And I choose what fits me. I have seen that the day I get up late in the morning, I am always short of time and have to regret at the end of the day. But the day when I get up early, I always enjoy extra time to do some extra activities I love to do, like writing for POSITITUDE. So, when I decide to get up early in the morning, I induce the strength inside me to realize that getting up early is the best way to manage the day in a more productive manner. Just think and act is the basic funda. This makes my will power strong and rest all is assured. My doctor told me that I have to control my weight to have control on my BP and cholesterol ratio. If I don’t do this, says the doctor, then ready for the consequences. This threat was shaking…. To control the weight I started with reduction of Carbohydrates, sugar and salt. Started cardio exercises. In the beginning it was very difficult for me to have control over my taste buds. But when I decided that I have to do, what I have decided to do, things changed entirely. This is Will power. When your brain and soul accept anything, your will also accept it and become strong to follow the instructions of brain and soul. Practice makes the will power more stronger and strengthening. Mahatama Gandhi has rightly said – ‘Strength does not come from physical capacity, it comes from indomitable will’. Actual practice of the Will is the only way to increase it. The more you practice it, the more it grows!
  13. 13. posititude Dec 14 13 Posted by Chaitanya Charan das • December 9, 2012 When we fall short while doing something challenging, we often wonder: how can I increase my willpower? The factors that determine our present level of willpower may be many: past-life karmic conditioning, upbringing and culture, for example. But the practice that can actually increase our willpower is only one: making and keeping promises. Only when we exercise our existing willpower muscles to stick to promises can we enhance those muscles. Significantly, not all promises are equally potent in boosting our willpower muscles. When we make promises about material things only, then we subject ourselves to a solitary struggle in willpower exertion. But if we make promises that connect us with the supreme power of Krishna, then his omnipotence offers quantum boosts to our willpower. The Bhagavad-gita (18.33)) indicates that the determination sustained by unbreakable yoga practice is determination in the mode of goodness. Such enlightened determination focuses first on strengthening the foundation of our willpower by solidifying our Krishna-connection. We use whatever willpower we have to keep our promise of practicing devotional service at the scripturally recommended and individually customized standard. Honoring this devotional promise increases our willpower in two ways – one normal and one transcendental. The normal way is that it exercises and thereby increases our willpower, as does keeping any other promise. The transcendental way, which is far more consequential, is that it pleases Krishna. He then connects us with his omnipotence thereby blessing us with boosts in our willpower that far exceed what our psychophysical nature would normally have allowed us. That’s why the best way to increase our willpower is to invest in rigidly practicing devotional service. This investment will give us the richest returns of manifold increased willpower that can benefit us in all areas of our life – material and spiritual.
  14. 14. 14posititude Dec 14 “A Man is but the Product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.” Mahatama Gandhi
  15. 15. posititude Dec 14 15 “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Maria Robinson Once the time is gone, It is gone for ever. You can’t get it back again. One of my colleague was fighting depression in office. What ever he does, is rejected by the Boss. Every day scolding and threat of being fired out of the company. He came to me and ask me what to do. I told him humbly, “first of all you should correct your self esteem. Create of a Positive self esteem”. He immediately reverted “It is easy to say to live in a positive self esteem, but very difficult to maintain the positive self esteem. I am facing lot of problems daily in my life. I lost my confidence in me and certainly I will be thrown out of the job. I know how to prepare good reports but my boss doesn’t understand them. He never appreciate my work, always demand more and more. There should a limit to every thing”. He was right. Life is full of negativity. People will challenge you by creating problems for you. Surrounding environment will be more demanding. Therefore face these challenges, exploit the opportunities, face problems in your life with positive attitude and confidence in yourself. You should always be ready to solve the problem and should inculcate the confidence in yourself . This all can be done if you have a strong self esteem. But you need to know what is self esteem and why to build self esteem and maintain self esteemed higher. Self esteem is normally considered as Personality Trait of oneself. It is basically describe as a person's overall sense of self-worth or personal value. Self-esteem is the belief one have about one self. If one think that “he is neglected”, “people are ignoring him”, and “other negative things about himself”, then that person will be in a very low Self Esteem. If the person thinks about himself as a blessed person, he is an able person, he do all the tasks with confidence, problems doesn’t seems problem, they are light and happy. We consider that person in high self esteem. Self Esteem
  16. 16. posititude Dec 14 16 Now the questions rises here is, that why one should have high self esteem? There are many reasons to have high Self Esteem. 1) When we have high Self Esteem, we have confidence in our capabilities and skills. We see all the problems as opportunity and solve them with ease. Even if we are unable to perform, we are not discouraged, but we come up again with more positivity and capability and perform. Every thing is on the lighter side. 2) When we are positive in our thoughts, our deeds are also always full of positivity. We are light and strong from our inside also. We don’t get disturbed by difficulties we come across our daily routine. 3) When we have high self esteem, we are always decadent and happy. We spread the happiness and happiness spread a positive environment at around us. 4) Positive environment always attract others. Peace and happiness is most wanted thing in this world. People get attracted by positive people. Therefore self- esteem always build relationships. These were few of the benefits of positive self esteem. But how to keep our self in high self esteem is an interesting question. We brought out some of the techniques, to keep Self Esteem High. 1) Think positive of your self – Always Think positive about yourself. Never think negative of your self. Think yourself a bless person. You are blessed with a good and healthy body, good family and work place. You can face any situation and give solution. Never criticize yourself irrespective of what others say about you. Negative critic about yourself weakens you. Therefore never allow yourself to criticize yourself. 2) Live with yourself every day at least 5 minutes. Take deep breath, calm your thoughts and focus inside. This is a wonderful practice that give you time to think about yourself. When you are with yourself, always think about the positive side of yourself. Think of successes and achievements. Think how you have helped others in their personal and professional lives. This will inculcate positive self esteem in you. 3) Before going to sleep Think at least 3 good things you deed during the day. Appreciate your self. Write these 3 good things on a piece of paper, rethink, how you deed those, what was your motive behind and how it has effected you and your surroundings. Keep all the write-ups and read these in the end of the week and month.

Whenever you read it, it will double your self esteem and motivate you to do more good things in your life. 4) Doing good – When you talk to yourself and evaluate your activities daily , it makes you more stronger and give you judicial power to distinguish between good and bad. Therefore always do what you think, good and benefactor for all. Repeatedly doing good in your daily routine, strengthen Self-Esteem and makes you a stronger and positive person. Do Good, be Good, end will always be Good. 5) Manage Failures and Mistakes – It is not necessary that you never makes mistakes or you never fails. There are many occasions when we make mistakes despite of all efforts and may face failures. It doesn’t mean we deserve that. Always think that it was by chance and due to some negligence on your part. You can correct it, you can convert your failure into success if do slight more efforts and hard work. There is no end, it is always a beginning. Start afresh and achieve what you want and what you deserve.

Your company effect you thoughts and your image in the society. If you keep company of good and positive people, then you self esteem will buildup automatically.

Follow that and complete all the tasks you have mentioned in the list. End of the day, when you see, that you have completed more than 80% of the task, you feel proud of yourself for spending your day productively. This feeling of accomplishment enhance your self esteem.

  20. 20. posititude Dec 14 20 Patience, you and Child Patience come with age and experience. It requires lot of understanding and Control. Children doesn’t have patience. They are new to the world and everything new to them and they become curious to know about new things. It is good also, to know more and learn more about the new things. Knowing will induce knowledge and induce experience to face the worldly problems in future. As an adult you know everything and have experience, therefore you are very cautious and avoid to take risk. Taking care of your child is your duty, but understanding and handling the child is also your responsibility. Understand the feeling of the child and his anxiousness and eagerness to know more and learn more. In this issue we will discuss about having patience in dealing your child. Put yourself in your Child Shoes. To understand the feeling of your child, you need to put yourself in your child’s shoes. You have to understand him/her what he/she wants to say and do. Get down on his/her level and try to experience life as he/she sees it. In other words, empathize. Help the child to understand. Instead of opposing, try to make him / her understand the effect of his /her action on others. How others will be get effected and how they will feel about them. Understand their needs and understand what they want to do. They may be right also. Always guide them the right and correct way to do or approach to handle the situation. Don’t impose your decisions. Give them time to understand you. They will understand, try once and over and over again. Understand your action. Sometimes, instead of understanding their feeling and mindset we behave illogical and try to impose our decision. Which is wrong. Before acting, understand what you are trying to do and how you are going to deal with the children. Always bear the patience as your ornament and understand and study your behaving and then act according. You will g-et embarrassed and think you child’s actions are a reflection of your parenting skills.
  21. 21. posititude Dec 14 21 Perhaps you're concerned about your child's future or worried about how her behavior is affecting you. Child’s behaviour is reflection of your behaviour – Remember that children are very fast learners and always follows their parents doing since their childhood. Therefore always be cautious in dealing others and your behaviour also. If the child not behaving in a proper manner Then instead of pointing him / her look at your Behaviour and evaluate whether he is behaving Your way. This will give You time to react in the Desirable manner. None of your action should deteriorate the situation. Be calm and react. “Always set a good example before your children.” Set Boundaries – Sit with your child. Discuss his/her needs and set boundaries in discussions with them proactively. Enforce them consistently and remind them time to time. Suppose you have set bed time at 10:30Pm, then you have to ensure that it is followed religiously by them. If not, talk will them and remind them your discussions and the commitment they have given you. In case he/she is finding any difficult in following the rules, again sit and re-define the boundaries. This will discipline them and understand the importance of planning and work accordingly. Never Impose, discuss and set rules in accordance with them. Self Control – Give time to your children to practice self control. New Apple 6 is launched and your child is having Apple 4. Tell his/her to compare the features of the two mobiles and evaluate their needs. If the new equipment is demand of their job/work, then he can buy otherwise why to waste for the thing which doesn’t induce value addition to their life. Most of the kid are anxious to buy the new version, whether that is useful of not. Therefore give them chance to understand their needs. This will induce Self Control in them automatically.
  22. 22. posititude Dec 14 22 There are many more examples of self control. Another one of the most important area is eating Junk food. Teach his/her the need of the body in relation to the daily routine job. Educate him/her that food should taken to make the body healthy and fit so that he doesn’t face health problem. Then teach him/her of the various food required by the body with quantity required. They will understand it. Again you should be an example of the same in front of them. When they start thinking about their needs, benefits and healthy life they start focusing and taking care of themselves and the surrounding. Understanding always induce Self Control. Patience and Tolerance – In this modern life Patience and Tolerance are most important ornament of the positive personality. Wear these two jewels in your Character. In daily routine your child will challenge you with his / her notorious activities. In that time you should have tolerance and patience. Start counting reverse, drink glass of water, start talking to yourself. Understand that bearing child is love and not business. Don’t expect too much from them. Expect too much from yourself. Talk to yourself and understand it that you are the cause of his/her birth and it is your inborne duty to make his/her a good human being. Be cool and calm. Cool and calm mind can only help you understand the situation. A disturb mind can only induce negativity like anger, frustration, attraction, contamination, etc., In nut shell your child is the mirror of your behaviour, character, values and attitude. Therefore before amending his/her behaviour change yourself first. Be an example, what you want your child to be. Don’t expect changes over time. It take time to adopt the change. Recognize your impatience is as much an issue as your child's misbehaving. Have patience with yourself. Many years of conditioning take time to respond to change.
