The Magic of Gainful Occupation In Introvert Story
You mind is not designed to do two things at the same time. Often you might find yourself essentially worry free when you are focused. The fact is, even when you appear to be doing two things at the same time, you really aren’t. Your mind switches between two thoughts so fast that you feel like you are thinking about them at the same time.
This same thing applies to every aspect of your life. Know that the brain is the central control system of your body and your emotions; being that, know that you cannot focus on negative emotions when you focus on something else. The inverse is also the same. Positive emotions like hope, love, and satisfaction can never be present with sadness, hatred and depression.
When a person gets preoccupied with the negative, the positive has to wait in line. And as long as you focus on the negative, the positive can never have its turn.Psychiatrists have often treated depression with work. Work, even if it is boring or uninteresting, is better than mulling over the negative. But the more effective form of work would be meaningful work. Doing a paper for a class or finishing a deadline, even doing charity, gives meaning to your life and make you content other than distracting you from all the negatives in your life.
A little competition with work can also help. Competition makes a person more engrossed in what he is doing and pushes out the negative thoughts even further. In short find something you are really interested in, a hobby, a sport a job, and work on it. It’ll leave you lighter, more fulfilled and most of all, it’ll drive all the negative thoughts away.
