Thinking is good?
We’ve all heard the phrase “I think, therefore I am.” But what does that even mean? Is thinking really that important? Well, of course it is! Thinking not only makes us who we are but also shapes our outlook on life. Without it, we would be nothing more than mere shells of ourselves. So let’s dive into why thinking might just be one of the greatest things to have come along for humankind.
Are you an overthinker?
Have you ever found yourself lying awake at night trying to figure out if pineapple belongs on pizza or not? Fear not my friends! You’re not alone in your pondering! In fact, some people are known for being chronic overthinkers.
Now don’t get me wrong – overthinking isn’t always a bad thing. It can help increase creativity and improve decision making by allowing us to see different perspectives and weigh up all options thoroughly. However, when the same thought process keeps circling around constantly like a hamster stuck in its wheel then perhaps we need to reconsider our choice of snack before going to bed.
- Improves decision-making abilities
- Increases creativity
- Helps understand different perspectives
- Can lead to indecisiveness
- Increases anxiety and stress levels
- Negatively impacts mental health
The moral of this section – learning how to keep thoughts under control supports staying sane in everyday life as these persistent nagging thoughts often simply loop back without conducting any valuable analysis/effects.
Boost Your Brain Power Through Reflections
We’ve all had those moments where something doesn’t make sense until we take a step back and give ourselves time to think about it fully. This period allows us to analyze events objectively which further facilitates meaningful insights gained from reflection resulting in learnedness improvements with every reflection cycle. Similarly , engaging in mindfulness, journaling or meditation are some ways to practice reflective thinking where a person learns, adapts and improves from their experiences.
And what is the best part about reflective thinking, you ask? Well…it requires no money! All it takes is your attention for five minutes in a day, which can be done while commuting to work or even doing the dishes!

Laugh Out Loud- It’s Good For You
We’re all guilty of having those moments where laughter spreads uncontrollably during an inappropriate time. But here’s some good news: laughing is actually great for our brains! Laughter releases endorphins that reduce stress hormones and elevates mood instantly. Essentially This cocktail leads to long term effects on reducing chronic pains,hypertension along with improving blood flow by “exercising” heart muscles.
Did you know that children laugh up to three hundred times a day whilst adults manage around twenty – thirty chuckles only? The solution may be watching cat videos online as they have been scientifically proved as one source of ‘meme therapy’ delivering belly laughs guaranteed creating improved health benefits.

Fake That Smile -Win Some Hearts!
Have you ever found yourself sitting through a staff meeting while secretly planning your escape from it? Well, what if I told you that simply smiling can change the way others perceive you during meetings?
