Rachel (name changed) did not turn up for a birthday party hosted by my daughter. The occasion was to celebrate and unwind. Unfortunately, she performed below par in a preparatory examination and was mentally distraught. Come on even Sachin has a bad day at office. Personal space was lost and innocence sacrificed at the altar of competition.
While the brain is an organ that serves as the centre of the nervous system, mind is the faculty of consciousness and thoughts. It is an individual’s intellect, memory or the attention span and will, whose potential needs to enhance.
It is pre-board time, followed by the final examination and then the frenzy to seek admission in a top rung college. Unless a student has been regular with their scholastic pursuits, last minute mental wrestling will lead them to an abyss. There is no substitute for regular and hard work and only a trained and smart mind can take up the challenge.
During examination time children suddenly suffer from physical and psychosomatic maladies especially when the benchmark is to excel at any cost. A raging debate is taking place on tolerance, while the stakeholders have become intolerant to the student without understanding their mind power.
Parents begin planning the careers of their offspring’s as bureaucrats, doctors, engineers, academics without appreciating the ability and interest of the child. I am reminded of the film Vicky Donor where an infertility specialist is in search of a versatile sperm which can produce either a Dhoni or an Aaishwarya , before conception.
Human mind can be divided into two hemispheres. The left and the right. The left hemisphere is all about logic and the right one focusses on creativity. Those with a predominant left hemisphere pursue sciences and allied areas and students pursuing humanities are governed by the mechanics of the right hemisphere. The gifted ones (Einstein) have both the hemispheres equally developed.
Parents and teachers should identify the proclivity and interests of the child from a young age and accordingly guide them to join the correct stream. That is smart parenting and teaching.
A child learns through visual, auditory and the kinaesthetic medium. Do teachers and parents impart such techniques scientifically?
Mind if trained properly can improve concentration, faculty of recall, speed reading and memory which produces desired goal results.
Speed reading is paramount as it helps in absorbing facts, numbers, data, with felicity and focuses on concepts without losing basic information. The teacher should educate a child to look everything afresh, trigger such a thought process to be creative, recall fast, master new languages and skills.
A student needs to be challenged or else he will get bored and drift. Only through proper counselling can anxiety be reduced and cobwebs be eliminated.
Detox and distressing are equally important in enhancing mind power. This can be achieved through a proper diet, rest, physical exercise and proper relaxation. Few students are aware that alternate nostril breathing helps in infusing fresh energy and balancing both the hemispheres of the mind.
Mind Power is dissipated the most by distraction. This can be arrested through the process of visualisation (remember names, places, dates, colors so that information seeps in the subconscious mind) ,conditioning memory (adding landmarks, events and incidents in daily lives ) to enhance recall and the usage of electronic gadgets like computers, smartphones and calculators to provide intelligent information. The idea is to stretch without straining. The mind should be kept fresh like dew on petals.
Finally as Zig Ziglar writes” If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.”
