This Weekend, Walk Into A New Room…

Advertisements
Psychologists have proven that the physical act of walking through a doorway is the reason why you sometimes enter a room and completely forget what you were doing.
It happens a lot, does it not?
You see, going through a door signifies the beginning or end of something, so it creates an ‘event boundary’ within your mind.
Every time you pass through a doorway, your brain is furtively filing away the thoughts you had in your previous location, to get you ready and make room for a new group of memories in the next.
This is known as ‘The Doorway Effect”.
Clever stuff, right?
After all, mankind has been through every kind of crazy time since history began and staying alert and on top our game, may be a matter of life or death sometimes.
Why am I telling you this?
I am thinking, that maybe, we should follow the lead of our clever old brains and join in with our emotions too.
Just leave our troubles at the door.
Walk into a new room.
See it with fresh eyes and open thoughts.
Let the past stay in the room behind, where it belongs.
Sound like a plan?
