Tune in to your intuition
Posted on Mon, Jul. 24, 2006
Wouldn�t it be great to know what you should do, no matter what the circumstance? In the July issue of Prevention magazine, Sarah Mahoney�s article �Going With Your Gut� offers tips for developing intuition, the ability to know things without immediate logical processing:
�Guess: Predict which grocery store checkout line is the fastest or try to figure out what a movie�s about with the sound turned off.
�Laugh at your mistakes: Humor stimulates the part of the brain linked to intuition.
�Chill out: Calm down with meditation, prayer or yoga.
�Ask others: Compare your gut feelings with the judgment of a friend or co-worker.
�Limit your logic: Study a problem for a while but not forever. Then let it go and forget about it. An answer may come to you later in the form of a feeling or a dream.
