9 Creative Ways to Boost Your Learning Skills

“Everyone is a genius at least once a year. A real genius has his original ideas closer together.”- Georg C. Lichtenberg
Have you ever wondered why most genial ideas, breathtaking poems and break-through discoveries are written on dinner napkins, ticket stubs, paper scraps and the palms of the hand?
It seems that genius often appears in the least expected places and the most inappropriate times. Think of the last time you had a brilliant idea or found a spontaneous solution to a problem that you had been struggling with for a long time. Where were you at that moment? In the shower? Cooking? Going down the steps? Or talking to a friend about a completely different topic?
The latest neurological research has made a few very intriguing discoveries. First of all, scientists believe that breakthroughs, insights or “aha” moments happen when the right hemisphere of our brain (called also intuitive/creative brain) is activated.
Secondly, research also indicates that in most people   the left hemisphere is dominant which is responsible for analytical step-by-step thought. For example, if your right hand is dominant it would most likely mean that you rely on your rational brain more than on your creativity and lateral thinking. And while it may serve you well in some situations, you can benefit hugely from increasing your right brain activity.
Here are 9 easy-to-do activities that you can practice in order to boost your creativity and improve your learning skills:
1. Meditate. Recent studies have made a fascinating discovery – our intelligence depends directly on the efficiency of communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. What does it have to do with meditation? As it turns out meditation is one of the most effective ways to balance our rational and creative thinking and increase bilateral activity in the mind. Meditation also improves our learning ability and retention of information.
2. Go for a long walk. You have probably noticed that walking helps to get emotions under control and calm down the mind. It is not a coincidence that the majority of artists, writers, scientists and people of other creative professions love to stroll through a park or along the beach and just observe everything that happens around them. As we walk our brain alternately fires off neurons in bilateral ways and we achieve a balanced brain state.
3. Listen to the classical music. If you do not care for Mozart or Beethoven maybe you should reconsider, because the effect of baroque music, with 60 beats per minute beat pattern, is almost too good to be true. It not only activates the left and right hemispheres simultaneously, but could make you become the next Albert Eistein. I am not kidding.
The Center for New Discoveries in Learning, reports that our learning potential can be increased a minimum of five times! by using this 60 beats per minute music. Another renowned Bulgarian psychologist, Dr. George Lozanov, has proven that foreign languages can be learned with 85-100% efficiency in only thirty days by using these baroque pieces. Using his system, students could learn close to 1,000 words or phrases in one day!
4. Write your goal down with the left hand. Do you know a goal that you would like to achieve this year? Great. You have probably heard that it is important to write your goals down. Well, it is even more important to write them down with your left hand! Before breaking your goal into mini-goals, take a pen and write it down with your left hand. It is ok, if no one on Planet Earth, not even you, will be able to read it. This is not the point. The point is to activate your holistic thinking and possibly get brilliant ideas about how you can achieve your goal.
5. Have a bilateral conversation. Do you know that wise men say that all the answers to our questions are already inside of us; only we cannot get them out? This is true. There is a little exercise that can help you find the right course of action, when you are in doubt. Take a pen and with your right hand right “Hi! How are you?” Then switch to your left hand and write down the answer without thinking. Carry on a dialogue with yourself for a few minutes and as you get a little more comfortable with this practice ask the question that has been on your mind for a long time and prepare yourself for the answer… Because there really is a little Zen master inside of you.
6. Break mechanical patterns of behavior. Psychologists point out that humans are creatures of habit. In fact, 95% of what we do, we do automatically. When we perform a certain activity out of habit, our left brain is usually activated. The right hemisphere, on the other hand, gets activated when we move in an unfamiliar way. Whenever you are learning a new dance move, playing a musical instrument or doing something in a strange way, like brushing your teeth with your non-dominant hand – your mind switches to creative thinking.
7. Wash dishes. Agatha Christie, one of the world’s greatest mystery writers, said she got her best ideas while washing the dishes. Any routine activity (like preparing lunch, taking a shower, exercising, sweeping courtyard, or doing laundry) seems to encourage the play of imagination and activate right-brain hemisphere.
8. Read books that inspire you. It does not matter if you like reading success stories, romantic novels or science fiction. The key is that it should awaken your imagination, help you to relax and distract you from the problem at hand. And to be even more creative and spontaneous, you can pick 5 different unrelated books and read a few paragraphs from each one of them.
9. Become creative. Pablo Picasso said, “To draw, you must close your eyes and sing.” It is true. If you want to activate your creative brain, you should engage in creative activity. Make up your own song as you sing it, draw a picture of your cat, write a story, dance with your children, or make a game out of trying to see animals in the shapes of the clouds. Let your imagination run wild!
P.S. And if you want to check your progress click here http://lateralaction.com/articles/left-brain-or-right/ and look at an image of a girl. Which way does she spin? Clock-wise or counter-clockwise?

20 Ridiculously Easy Ways To Improve Your Focus In 3 Days (Part 1)

When we watch our favorite Football team play, read a thrilling book, listen to an interesting person talk or do something that we enjoy, we do not have to force ourselves to pay attention to the task. We can effortlessly maintain 100% focus over a long period of time. But there are other times when no matter how hard we try, we just cannot seem to keep it together.
I, for instance, regularly forget my cell phone at home (which really upsets my friends and family members). But I am sure I am not the only one guilty of day-dreaming and mind-wandering.
I am going to take a guess that you too have been in a situation when a person was talking to you while your thoughts were wandering somewhere else. Or when you really needed to learn new material, and yet you were reading the words without really understanding the main idea. Or when you planned on starting a new workout routine, but could not make yourself stay committed to your goal.
All these experiences have one thing in common – lack of focus.
Many people believe that poor concentration is an almost irresolvable problem. I can tell you from my own experience that it isn’t. In fact, there are many great little tips and exercises that you can do to noticeably improve focus and expand your attention span in just 3 days.
Here are the first 10 (10 more are coming in the next post. I did not write them all together for one simple reason – it would be really hard to read and memorize all 20 suggestions at once):
1. Identify your objective. The concept of focus put simply is about not losing the thread of what you are trying to do. Usually if you do not have a clear objective before you start working on a certain task, half of  your time and effort will be simply wasted. Therefore, before beginning anything, ask yourself “What is my objective for doing it?” It does not matter if you are working on a project, making pancakes, talking to a friend or trimming the lawn. Some of your actions should be directed to achieve a concrete goal. When you define clearly what it is that you want to accomplish, you cut your chances of getting distracted by half.
2. Concentrate on one task at a time. When we have ten + tasks on our to-do list, multitasking seems like the only logical solution to get them all done. We multitask, because we believe that it boosts our efficiency and productivity. However, true productivity is not about how many things you can do at once. It is about how many tasks you complete. If you want to get more done a lot faster and with fewer errors, focus your attention on just one task at a time.
3. Choose important over urgent. Not all of the important tasks are urgent. Quite the opposite, all long-term goals that have the biggest positive impact on our life are way ahead in the future. Similar, most tasks that seem highly urgent will not matter in a month. Make sure that you do not let yourself be distracted by apparent priorities and keep your focus on tasks that are truly important for your career, personal life, health and spiritual growth. Everything else can wait!
4. Set up a success environment. It has been proven that visual clutter impedes our focus and productivity. If you want to improve your focus, clear your desk and close all the unnecessary tabs on your desktop. Leave only those materials or things that you need to successfully complete the task.
5. Block out distractions. Because we are programmed biologically to stay alert to changes in our environment, it is natural for us to react to every interruption in our environment. In order to stay focused, we must keep our distractions at bay. Close the door and ask your coworkers or family members not to disturb you for 45-50 minutes. Turn off your e-mail notifications, Twitter, Facebook, messenger, and Skype. Switch off your cell phone.  Turn off the TV, internet or your mp3 player. If you absolutely must have background “noise” to stay concentrated (like I do), choose classical music, mantra chanting or nature sounds CDs. This type of relaxation music has been proven to boost focus and creativity.
6. Take care of your body. It is close to impossible to keep your concentration levels high, if you are tired, hungry, thirsty or anxious. Make sure that you are getting enough sleep, eating well and getting regular exercise. This will increase your physical energy, improve oxygen levels in the bloodstream and as a result will keep your mind more alert.
7. Study your energy patterns. All of us have different times of the day when we feel energized and motivated and times of day when we feel lazy and less productive. Plan your daily routine by taking your energy patterns into consideration and scheduling your most important tasks when your attention is highest.
8. Work in blocks. Our concentration is highest during the first 50 minutes of work. Use this knowledge to your advantage. Break down your tasks into 45-50 minute sessions, which are followed by a 10-15 minute focus shift. This means that after your focus session is over, you immediately stop whatever you have been doing, get up from your desk and do something completely different (for example, make yourself a cup of coffee, chat with colleague, do a 10-minute workout, call your spouse to see how  they have been doing).
9. Do it wholeheartedly. If you do not feel like doing something, you will actively look for excuses to get distracted, which only prolongs the torture. Whatever you are doing, try to find some aspects that interest and motivate you. Why is it important to get this task done well? What benefits will it bring you?
10. Give yourself a break! With our busy work schedule, most of us use our break time to make phone calls, browse the internet or do some more work (which keeps us “glued” to our desk for hours). Doing this basically means killing your productivity. When your body gets tired, your brain cells get exhausted, your concentration level decreases and your performance suffers. Therefore, if you want to surprise yourself and others with your laser-like focus and improved productivity, make sure to take 10-25 minute breaks every hour or so. And do not forget weekends are when all work ends, otherwise they would be called working days. :)

Dealing with Daily Distractions

You are sitting at your desk trying to concentrate on your project.
“I really need to get it done by the end of the day… Let’s see… What are the numbers for the last month?… Hold on. Is that a new email? It might be from Terry.”
You open the email box…
“No that’s just spam. Why would I want to buy a Rolex watch?! … Where was I? Numbers for the last month… God, who is writing to me on Facebook? I’ll just say I’m busy… Finally!… Numbers for the last month should be right here… Great!”
Janice from her desk: “Oh my God! Look at that! Hold on! I’ll send it to you!”
You accepting an image file… waiting for it to download… opening it. It is a picture of a KITTEN!
You to Janice, “It’s cute!” while thinking, “Why in the world would she send me a picture of a cat?! I really don’t have time for this! Where was I? Right… Numbers for the past month…”
Distractions can be very annoying, especially when you are trying to get some work done. They are like thousands of midges swarming around you and following you everywhere you go, making it impossible for you to focus on important tasks.
Just by eliminating those daily distractions alone you will instantly improve focus , double your productivity and avoid unnecessary stress.
Here is how to do it:
1. Block out the noise. Our brain actually starts to deal with distractions the day we are born. A large portion of the incoming information is blocked to prevent us from feeling overwhelmed. The two main senses that we rely on the most are vision and hearing.
The results of much psychological research show us that we mainly get distracted by visual stimuli as well as unwanted acoustic information. The solution to the distraction problem is genial, because it is so simple – get ear plugs or put on a pair of headphones without listening to any music. When you block one of the senses, the other senses become heightened. But it also helps to improve your focus.
2. Avoid visual stimulation. It has been shown that we only block out about 20% of what comes in through our eyes. This is why we need to keep all visual distractions to a minimum. Most of us do not even notice that our eyes are repeatedly turning to email pop-ups, flashing banners, clutter around our desk, tens of icons on our desktop or the person sitting in front of us.
Therefore, turn off your IM, Twitter, Facebook, email notifications. Remove all the clutter from your desk and your desktop. If you work in an open-plan office, find a spot where you will not be directly facing someone. At home just close the door (lock it if you can) and inform your family members that you will be busy working for about an hour.
3. Look busy and be strong. Frequently we feel that it is not polite to ignore another person or ask them not to disturb you. This is counter-productive, because when you try to “be nice” and respond to people, who are disturbing you, your irritation and anxiety will show in your tone of voice and your body language. You actually give people the impression that you do not enjoy talking to them or that they annoy you.
Do not be shy, let people know from the start that you are busy and you need time to concentrate. In general, other people are very respectful of another person’s time and do not want to disturb someone who they know is busy working. Therefore, look busy and ignore all distractions. If your colleague starts to talk to you, pretend you do not hear them and just bob your head in response.
4. Eliminate “snooze” effect. Often when we know that we have a lot to do, we feel tempted to work for hours and ignore the signals that our body sends us, like “I’m hungry”, “I’m tired” or “I need to go to the bathroom”. If you are hungry, your thoughts will continue to come back to the half chicken salad sandwich that has been lying in your fridge since this morning. Trying to suppress our body’s signals or your curiosity is similar to hitting “snooze” on your alarm clock. It will continue to ring again  every few minutes, distracting you over and over again.
If you are hungry, your back hurts, or you are wondering how your spouse’s job interview went – just get up and eat that sandwich, make yourself a cup of coffee, call your spouse and then satisfied get back to your project.
5. Calm your mind. We often blame others for distracting us, but in reality we can be our own biggest distraction. Do you know those tiresome thoughts that buzz in your head when you are trying to concentrate? “I forgot to call my mom”, “I must remember to buy salt, otherwise I won’t be able to make pasta tonight”, “I wonder what John is doing this weekend”. Our mind is like a wild monkey randomly jumping from one thought to another, making it impossible to stay focused on the task at hand.
Meditation is a great way to calm your thoughts and improve your concentration. Whenever you feel overwhelmed close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, relax your body and concentrate for a few minutes on your breathing. Feel the sensation of air enter you nostrils, feel your lungs widen, your diaphragm lowering. Imagine how with every breath you take you breathe in relaxation and breathe out tension and anxiety.
Let your thoughts flow naturally. If you feel that your mind is starting to wander, gently bring your attention back to the breathing pattern. It takes a little practice, but it is a great way to restore your energy, improve concentration and boost your productivity.

8 Momentous Reasons to Wake Up Early

“One key to success is to have lunch at the time of day most people have breakfast.” ~Robert Brault
It has become common knowledge that successful people are early risers. Although, no one can guarantee that getting up early will necessarily make you successful, there are some sound reasons why successful people choose to wake up early before the sunrise.
Benefits of becoming an early riser:
1. Mindful start of the day. The first 15 minutes after you wake up set the mood and the pace for the whole day. If you jump out of bed thinking, “OMG! I’m late!” or immediately start mulling over all the problems that you have to solve today, it probably means that you are not starting your day on the right foot. Waking up early actually gives you time to become conscious of your surroundings, stretch your body, smile to yourself, listen to some great music, and truly feel how blessed you are, because you have been given the opportunity to live another day and make it wonderful.
2. More free time. It is as simple as that – if you wake up 2-3 hours earlier, you get majority of the tasks on your to-do list done by noon. It means that you do not have to stay late after work to finish your projects. You can get home earlier and spend quality time with your family. Or if you do not feel like starting your day with work, you can still use those 2 precious extra hours to meditate, work out, pursue a hobby, cook yourself a delicious breakfast or plan out your day. In any case you expand your free time!
3. Important health benefits. Besides obvious benefits of rising early like having plenty of time to do a quick work out, or eating a healthy balanced breakfast (instead of skipping it), there are other interesting discoveries made in this area. A study conducted of college students conducted by Wilse B. Webb, Ph.D., and Michael H. Bonnet, Ph.D., of the University of Florida demonstrated that “larks (or early risers) reported waking up feeling more rested”, having “fewer worries” and getting more “adequate sleep”. They also awakened feeling physically better than “owls” (late risers).
4. High happiness level. I have a personal theory that the majority of people who love to sleep till noon simply cannot think of any exciting activities that they want to do. Their priority is to stay in bed just a few hours longer, before reality hits them hard with its traffic jams, urgent deadlines, bills. When you are happy to greet the coming day, enthusiastic about something or motivated to succeed, you do not need to snooze your alarm clock twice. Therefore, if you are not a morning person, ask yourself why? Maybe you simply cannot think of anything that you would like to do with an extra 2 or 3 hours?
5. Opportunity for spiritual growth. The author of the best-selling book “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” Robin Sharma calls the time right before the sunrise “Holy Hour”. In Ayurveda the time between 4 and 6 a.m. is known as Brahma Muhurta or “Time of God”. It is believed that during this period the mind can easily concentrate on meditation, prayers, life goals and studies. Fascinatingly enough, the latest studies seem to endorse this ancient Vedic knowledge. It has been discovered that the Earth sets up extremely low frequency (ELF) waves in the atmosphere shortly before sunrise, of the same frequency (10 Hz) as the brain in a meditation state. If you still have doubts, try it for yourself!
6. Better opportunities. There is a common stereotype that people who go to bed late are leading exhilarating, intense and sometimes crazy social life. They can relax at late night parties, go to dancing clubs, stay up late with friends all night watching movies and eating pizza while “larks” are already in bed sound asleep. This may be true. Early risers might be missing out on late-night entertainment, but they compensate for it by having a distinct advantage in most of the important daytime activities like business meetings, job interviews, classes, seminars, and work appointments.
7. Best time to get great ideas. You rarely get brilliant ideas in the middle of a busy working day. Quite the opposite, psychological studies report that our creativity is the highest when our mind is relaxed and we are not forcing ourselves to come up with the right solutions. In my case, I get my best creative ideas when I am taking a shower, strolling with no purpose in mind, doing yoga or meditating. And I am not the only one. Many famous writers, designers, inventors and entrepreneurs find the early hours of the day the best time for hatching new ideas and unexpected solutions.
8. Increased productivity. If you have ever woken up at 5 a.m. (or gone to bed at this time) you know what I mean when I say “peace and quiet”. This distraction free atmosphere is the main reason why more and more people prefer to work early in the mornings or late at night ( i.e. when the rest of civilization is sleeping).
For me 6 to 9 a.m. is my most productive time. This is the time I set aside for writing, brainstorming or working on my most important projects. Up until 2 years ago I would have told you that I am at my productive best when I work late. Inspiration would usually hit after everyone else in my family was sleeping and I would be working furiously through the night, demonstrating miracles of productivity. Now looking back I can tell you that while I could easily enter into the state of “flow” at 11 p.m. I had to pay for my productivity with insomnia, strained tired eyes, neck ache and low energy levels the following day. Think about it… If you wake up feeling drowsy and tired, because you stayed up till 4 a.m. maybe you should consider adjusting your work schedule?
“Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting for it.” ~Richard Whately
