I recently went to an event put on by my friend Patrycja Slawta, a psychology researcher, called
"Mindhacking: Finish Strong & Well" which focused on the science of endings.
It was an interesting talk with an emphasis on how strong beginnings need to have a good ending before it.
In my experience working with people, I frequently see how old habits and unfinished business wreaks havoc on a person's desire for new beginnings.
It is important to take care of business, finish things, put closure to relationships, get rid of unnecessary obligations and objects, because these things all impact the next thing to follow.
Pati also spoke about open and closed loops. She spoke of how the human brain loves closure, and when an activity is finished, the brain can truly let it go.
There is research that shows when something is unfinished, it is in essence, an "open loop". The brain views open loops as something that it needs to keep track of, and is doing so even when you are not consciously aware of it. These open loops sap energy from your overall mental capacity.
As you approach the end of the year, how many open loops do you have looming in your subconscious awareness?
Are there unfinished projects, old relationships, amends, apologies, and conversations that need to be had cluttering your ending, and by extension, your new beginning?
If you answered yes to any of these questions and want to clear the slate of these things, come for a private Brain Detox session to clear the slate for an amazing 2016.
Special session packages are also available.
