On the courses we talk about the need to Control Your Attention and the need to learn to ‘train the brain’ to do that. If you have ever sat exams you will know that when you first begin studying it is very hard to maintain your concentration but that over time this ability increases. It is the same principle with teaching your self to Control Your Attention and remain in the present.
Some activities for learning how to Control Your Attention include:
A body scan, in which attention is given to muscle groups in the body is one way to train the brain to hold attention. Here are two body scans produced by the Challenge of Change. The first takes about 10 minutes and the second one, about 18 minutes.
Every month or so we post a video on a topic connected to what is taught on the course.
Hear about the science behind how stress ages us and can lead to significant ill-health and importantly, how not worrying and our attitude to life events leads to a healthier body. The presenter, Elizabeth Blackburn won a Nobel prize for her work in this area.
