Does Meditation Increase Synchronicity?

Does Meditation Increase Synchronicity? | Unplug | Scoop.it
Because synchronous events usually take place between two people, and they are rare and unplanned, scientific study of them is few and far between. But that doesn't mean that they are outside our experiences.

Susan Taylor's insight:

Do meditation and synchronicity go hand in hand?


You've been told by your coach that if you do not slow down, serious consequences could occur due to your frenetic behavior.  You are then driving home from the office late at night.  A truck spins out of control; and as your life passes before your eyes, you notice two words written on the side of the truck:  "Slow Down".


This is the story Dr. Robert Puff shares with us about one of his clients.  Synchronicity?  Or something that could be explained as mere coincidence?


According to Dr. Puff, the story he shares is one of synchronicity.  His suggestion as to how to increase synchronous events in your life is through meditation.


"The goal of meditation is to slow you down, quiet your mind, and maintain stillness. As you do this, you may find that synchronous events increase."


Of course the only one who can validate this is you.  Puff's suggestion?  Be open to meditation.  Give it a try, and "see if life flows better."

10 Ways to Create a Happy Moment | Unplug | Scoop.it
As part of self-care, creating a happy moment for ourselves can not only break a negative mood, it paves the way for more positive moods to follow.
Susan Taylor's insight:

You deserve a happy moment!  Here are ten suggestions to put yourself in a good mood:


  1. Listen to or watch something funny
  2. Compliment people you do not know
  3. Laugh at yourself
  4. Allow yourself to be an 8-year old again
  5. Hold a baby
  6. Create a playlist of happy songs
  7. Spend time in Nature
  8. Treat yourself to something you normally wouldn't
  9. Take a bath
  10. Create your own joke


Great advice from Nathan Feiles.


And as another idea, why not try some (or all) of these things as a way to unplug?

Millennial Women Burn Out Early

Millennial Women Burn Out Early | Unplug | Scoop.it
Share business ideas, small business news and social media tips with Project Eve's community of women in business and entrepreneurs. (RT @TedCurtin: Why Life Balance is Critical!
Susan Taylor's insight:

Are you a Millennial Woman?  If so, there are some things you need to know about early burn-out.


If you want to avoid burn-out, it's going to require some self-care, along with continually redefining your goals and evaluating your meaning of success.  So what does this mean?


It means that you need to learn to incorporate relaxation into your day in order to avoid reaching the breaking point.  Millenial women need "to learn that life is a marathon, not a sprint." 


And it seems that men are more capable of doing this than women. Research shows that males spend more time taking care of their personal well-being.  "They are 25% more likely to take breaks for personal activities, 35% more likely to take breaks for relaxing, 7% more likely to take time out to go for a walk and 5% more likely to make time to go out for lunch".


So take a lesson from this research and your male counterpart.  Take a break...relax...and go out for a walk.
