Does experience happen only when the brain gets sensory stimuli (sight, sound, taste, smell, touch) or for experience to happen does it have to undergo some other complex process? A newborn infant is alarmed by certain sounds but with passage of time understands that there is no danger associated with it. Hundreds of such stimuli bombard our senses daily but as we grow up we now have a repertoire of past experiences… Read More

A stress less life is yet to be constituted. All of us have experienced it thus far and regardless of how effectively we manage stress, we continue to experience it in some form. Amongst predominant reasons for causal aspects relating to stress these days, occupational stress i.e. burnout, work & finance related stress and relationship stress tops the charts. The structure of life is such that one has to get up and… Read More

Human beings are endowed with the capacity to construct language and also be the beneficiary of its immensity in terms of construing meaning out of it as well as establishing an acceptable code of communication in which the society can cohere. In addition to the capacity to laugh, the ability to use language discerns us from animals and other species. Through language we can express our needs, emotions, deeper feelings, imaginations, ideas,… Read More

Zig Ziglar had stated that ‘Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust.’ Sure all these could be true from a customer’s perspective and if indeed these five conditions persist then it is prudent to leave the prospect alone. In fact in standard prospecting parlance, such a position wouldn’t make the firm qualify as a ‘prospect’ anymore to the selling organization. Sales people move… Read More

Immense gratitude we lavish upon those who can make us laugh, be it from a face-to-face or group interaction, a movie, sitcom, stories, book, YouTube clippings, own thoughts, or any other source. Amongst emotions/ feelings such as happiness, delight, contentment, ecstatic, jubilant and so on, that communicate an inner state of a person, laughter is the external indefensible manifestation of a body that is tickled pink due to the impinging humour. Individual… Read More

Crying is an innate characteristic in human beings. It is an involuntary mechanism but we are conditioned to suppress it as we grow up. Actors do seem to voluntarily generate tears but in life, under conditions of intense distress, one cannot regulate its flow but with societal dissuasion against crying, we have learnt to suppress this innate attitude. Children cry a lot and at that age it is an acceptable social behaviour…. Read More

The setting sun is beautiful when viewed from any part of the world and particularly at the beach, it is resplendent. It has the key ingredients to promote romance, alleviate stress, shelve anxiety, layover distress  and associated thoughts. Not eliminate them totally, but a temporary reprieve. Ever wonder why the sky is blue and sunset is a brilliant mix of red, orange and streaks of yellow? We are fortunate enough to experience the… Read More

What is it that distresses human beings and at what level of anxiety and distress is it considered unsafe for one’s wellbeing. Most of us at some point or the other have experienced varying stages of anguish, pain, torment, distress, depression and related emotions and when this gets to acute or chronic stages it becomes neurosis which is a functional disorder in which feelings of anxiety, obsessional thoughts and compulsive acts dominate… Read More
