Mental Block

         A very normal phenomenon which is encountered by almost all of the people. Yes , mental block is just normal, but that is for the people who don't really understand it. Well , Mental block is the inability to recall something , to think of something or to perform a mental action. Any individual may encounter this for it does not choose time , place and situation when to occur. It may be during your class hours, office meeting , special occasion , grand ball , parties and worst in your examination day .

          Why does MENTAL BLOCK happen ??

  • Sticking in one thought - avoid sticking in one idea, don't set your mind close specially when gathering data. You should always be open-minded.
  • Not Paying attention - during your class or office hours you will notice yourself listening but words just enter in the right then exit to the left .You should be mentally and physically active in discussion. Your ears and eye's specially your mind should be focus on the speaker. 
  • Not being prepared - in connection in "Not paying attention" this i also a a challenge in our mental and physical alertness. You should always be attentive and easy to reach. Don't let your minds swim or fly out of the world. 
  • Not setting your time - in our multitasking generation we should watch our schedule. Time management is highly needed. We should avoid running out of time and rush hours. That's a big NO ' NO ! You really have a lot of chances in forgetting lots of things.
  • Stress - when you are very active in lots of activity  and a hardworking person , you might be a stressed one too. When your mind and body are being forced and always in use , it might function slowly. Be sure to take some vitamins.
  • Overwhelmed/ depressed - when a person carries mix emotion or sometimes over flowing emotion we are prone on forgetting so much and being trapped in one corner of idea.
  • Mixed idea - thinking so much will cause a total block-out . That's it . 

      Everyone might experience this , specially when solving math and science problems , but we have different    unique ways to overcome and remember things again .

              Facing MENTAL BLOCK !

  • Shake your head .
  • Do the inhale-exhale process
  • Be calm ( don't be so obvious that you forgot something )
  • Stay on track - continue with the discussion
  • Don't force yourself to remember
  • Change / jump to another topic 
  • Don't try to write if your mind is empty
  • Play with your ideas

        Mental block is usual but when it became severe, or it occur regularly , it will be obviously unusual. You should be aware of whats already happening to you . Have the initiative to go to your trusted physician.

This happens to me sometimes. It's very irritating especially when I'm trying to finish up on an article.

One of the ways is to actually stop what you are doing, relax your mind before you come back to the task

I experienced this a lot of times but the worst was during university days. Our school was preparing us for the CPA board exam so starting 3rd yr we already have departmental exams and if your grade is below par they will kick you out from the course and you cant graduate with accounting degree even if you are already on your 4th yr. I was so stressed out that for like 30 minutes I can't remember anything... ;( then I calmed myself and good thing I was able to recover in time and passed the exam with flying colors! ;)

Been experiencing mental block this past few days. Nagpapakurot ako minsan para mawala.

It's normal.. and it happens to everyone. Whenever I get that, lumalabas ako ng bahay at maglakad-lakad. Minsan, tatambay lang sa labas, at iinum ng kape sa patio. Chill chill lang.. Madalas, sa stress lang din yan eh. :)

I usually encounter mental blocks when speaking in front of the camera. Never had one during exams or speaking in public. Ang camera lang talaga ang may weird effect saken, especially if na-oon-the-spot ako.. >.<

I go to some new place to get rid of my mental block or I just don't write for some time ... then I'd get all excited because I missed writing.

Blair Villanueva said...

KC Canlas | Spread Some Awesome said...

Thanks for the tips. I badly need this because I always have mental block not only when writing but also when talking with people I met for the first time. Or maybe that's just shyness. :))

I always experience mental block especially after my ruptured brain aneurysm coiling operation. My neurosurgeon said it was just normal to experience this since I had a major surgery.

"Poisoning their brainwashed minds." xtainity brainwashed you. Liberalism is the poison.
The gods used xtainity to demonize Lucifer, ensuring people refused to heed the teachings of THE SECOND COMING!!!. Lucifer is the Second Coming of Christ!!!
xtianity is the product of the Apostle's books of the New Testiment and can't be trusted to contain the true teachings of Jesus Christ. Just like each one of you corrupt whores, the gods could have tempted them with immortality if they lied when writing the New Tesatiment. Then the gods dictated verbatim specifically to parlay into the destructive phenominah known as xtianity.
We have seen the gods engage in similar behavior to keep people away from good religions, with the Jews in Palestine and Muslims recently post-9.11, demonizing both.
This is another of the god's wicked curveballs, their reverse positioning tool extensively employed, utilizing positioning to prepare for the Apocalypse and your "consolation prize" of "1000 years with Jesus on Earth".

Guns are bad because they empower men. Much like weightlifting and racing...
Any male-dominated activity is a red flag, just like anything which black subculture compells blacks. Yes, women have guns. Now. Historically this wasn't an issue. They didn't drink. They didn't gamble. Sports. They didn't do so many behaviors the gods dump men into because they are so destructive.
Now we are losing this, and with it the hope for the future of humanity on Planet Earth.
Your women are your only chance, and the more masculinized they are the less hope you have. Women have always avoided these temptations, and have always guided the men into wisdom and knowledge, allowing them to make progress and avoid another shitty placement when reincarnated. This is the historical relationship between the two genders, and it is changing as we approach The End.

"It's all going to hell. I don't have to deal with this mess I helped create. I won't be here so I don't give a fuck." This is the theory people have subscribed to for a couple of lifetimes, and will continue to until they understand reincarnation is real and will be enforced upon them.

What I say is no different than any Republican in the quest to reduce the enormous scope of government.
All those years of increasing government. None of those people were laid off as we regulratly witness in the private sector. Imagine the dead weight on the payroll.
You have to start laying people off. Unfortunately insolvency is the goal the gods have for the United States.
It's kind of like Mom:::So evil she isn't eligible for punishment until the end of her life when it is too late

Brain scramble jokes. She was a fake.
All in this position likely are fakes. The gods want things to prgress according to their agenda, and the clone host fakes guarentee the legislation they desire/require.
They aree always fresh, new know-it-all 20 year olds, eager to hurt people and "earn", so the only way things will improve is ironically if our children improve, if parents raise considerate, moral children. But while we have trashy parents like my family the gods will always have an endless supply of immoral monsers happy to sabotage the country through legislation.

In the course of decay and deterioration of the favor of the people the gods instructed their clone host tools in corporate to make changes to their products and subsequently in people's lives. The switch to plastic/disposable-based packaging is an outstanding example. Another is the extensive use/proliferation of disposable diapers. Whereas diaper services were the norm during the 20th cenutry a change occurred in the 70s/80s and parents began to incurr evil upon their children, and sadly in some cases think they were "earning" off their own infant children!!!

This is very true, especially for those students who have to study a lot for very important examinations and oral recitations. Masakit talaga sa bangs yong mga ganoon na bagay. Tsk tsk!
