How To Be Productive While You Meditate

Hey everyone!


 


Here's a little something I think could help


every biohacker, specially those who like me


suffer from anxiety or obsessive personality.


 


I've been obsessing with practical meditation. That is,


as I'm connected to the emwave2 (on my laptop), 


I fully completely laser focus on progressing one task only.


 


What I do is this.


-First, I get to the green zone.


-Then, I start working on the one task only.


If I happen to move down to the red zone, then


I stop, and breathe until I'm back in the green


or blue zone. Once there, I continue working


on the one task.


 


Mix this with working/rest cycles


(I use this online free tool, it's awesome! -


http://www.magicworkcycle.com) and


you'll produce great results in the quality


of your work and the experience of


completing each task. Mix it with 


binaural beats and then you are in 


a whole new level.


 


My anxiety is aggressively softened when


I work in this way and I can enjoy


the task at hand. I've also found that


it takes me less time (it feels longer


but the actual objective time is shorter)


to complete each task.


 


Try it out! Embrace mono tasking with your 


only distraction being the emwave2.


Let me know how it goes.


 


Cheers!

  • i like this approach.  haven't put it into practice yet, but have been thinking along these lines for a while.  i've been trying to think of reliable ways to quantify my performance.  while not quite quantifying focus, this is a step in that direction.

    Thanks for your comment!


     


    I guess that to quantify focus, you would have to quantify results. 


    So maybe try this with a task you have to do more than once.


    Do it first the way you normally do it, and then applying


    the practical meditation technique. Then compare your results.


     


    Hope it helps.

  • Very interesting topic. 


    I just started using a laptop in the same way, but I find it quite distracting instead. Ever tested cycling with the priority of getting the task done instead? If you did, how were your results?


    Probably it's because I'm still at a low level of coherence, but for now I'll stick with periodic sessions to replenish my energy and focus rather than "meditating" the whole time.


  • I like the idea of this.  Add some blue light therapy and some nicotine perhaps to really get in the zone.

    Thank you for your comment Mishra.


     


    Yes, it can be quite distracting at first. But once you get used to 


    getting in the zone, it becomes easier and helpful.


     


    You can use it as information as well, to know what kinds of 


    tasks or interactions make you come out of coherence.


     


    Cheers.

    Thank you for replying @longo.


     


    Nicotine? Could you explain further? I'll research blue light theraphy as well.

    First, I want to say that I wasn't entirely serious, my sense of humor doesn't work very well in real life, and is even less effective on the internet.  HOWEVER, nicotine and blue light have both shown to have desirable effects on the brain.  I wouldn't necessarily suggest using nicotine without caution, though it is definitely something to consider.  And, apparently you receive enough blue light from your computer, depending on what type of monitor you have, to receive some benefits.


     


    Here is a good podcast on nicotine:

    And blue light:

    I like the idea of using the emwave while being productive, and also experimenting with stacking additional hacks as well (for example, any combination of: cold thermogenesis, BPC, nootropics, binaural beats, deep breathing, emwave, blue light, tCDS, CES, etc)
