If you like, think back to a running route. One that you haven’t been on in a long time. Now usually the clever ones close their eyes. Close their eyes to recollect that route. That trail that waypoint. There is a beautiful trail that I enjoy to run, about 15KM, and it is in the black forest. Now usually I run it once per year. That’s it. From the car park you head up a trail that leads you on a zig zag up to a ridge… and then if I recall it now… I am lost for details. Because you head down the north side of the ridge and then I cannot remember the details… all I recall is again being high up and admiring the view. But that part in the middle. It’s a blank. Sitting here, trying to remember it whilst scanning what all is Infront of me… my podcast notes, the microphone, the sticky notes, the photos I cannot find that memory. But let me try this… closing my eyes…. Yes I remember now actually its not a blank at all…
Have you ever wondered why we tend to close our eyes when recalling details or to focus our thoughts? As it turns out, this habit has surprising benefits. And according to the latest research, briefly closing your eyes on purpose is probably the simplest productivity hack there is.Thanks for listening do share it with someone who you feels could use today’s message, my name is Heiko.
