I just got a message from one of my computer programs. The program cleans my hard drive, dumping useless files and freeing up space for future computations. The message read, “It’s time to clean your hard drive.” I told Renee my hard drive needed cleaning and she laughed at me.
Seriously, wouldn’t it be nice if humans had programs they could run that cleaned their brains of useless data, stressors, emotional garbage and a vast trove of long-ago issues that we carry around with us for questionable reasons? Would you be surprised if I told you we actually have the programs we need to cleanse our brains, most of us just have not activated them?
Yep, not only should we identify these programs, but we should activate them and use them often:
- Exercise – So, you never thought of using exercise to cleanse our brains of junk. If you exercise, you know that regular workouts decrease your stressors, both physical and mental. A routine exercise program can release endorphins, giving you energy and an emotional boost. So, if you don’t exercise, start. If you exercise regularly, never quit.
- Guided Imagery/Meditation – Meditation before medication should be our national motto. Everybody has the ability to meditate built into their brains. They just don’t understand how meditation could possibly help, nor how to activate it. “Doc, that’s a bunch of hippie/yuppy/millennial crap,” was something I heard daily. Unfortunately, you really can’t appreciate the benefits of Guided Imagery until you’ve actually done it. Belle Ruth Naperstak holds the key to activating your own abilities. Click Here!
- Counseling – Think of your counselor as belonging to The Geek Squad at Best. If you can’t figure out how to install or use your newest computer programs, call The Geek Squad. For a few bucks, they’ll get you all set up and ready to work. While your counselor will cost more than a few bucks, helping you cleanse the crap in your brain should be well worth it.
- Medication – There are medicinal activators that can help optimize your brain function. I’m on a medication called Sinemet. Sinemet activates areas of my brain that otherwise would become dormant due to my Parkinson’s.
When you buy a program that cleanses your hard drive, many times you will end up with a suite of programs that not only cleanse your drive but also optimizes its functions and helps prevent viral attacks. When you are dealing with your brain, I recommend the suite of programs (1-4) above.
My literature suggests that depression is on a sharp rise. Stress related illness is on a sharp rise. Spousal and child abuse is on a sharp rise. Cleansing your brain of stressors and old junk is not going to be easy but the benefits should be phenomenal and, perhaps, blunt the rise in emotional distress that’s haunting most of us.
Here’s your music and a joke of one liners..
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Snore and you sleep alone.
“Today I’m wearing a lovely shade of I slept like crap so don’t piss me off!”
