Brainpower Contest Winner # 9

Here is the winning entry for the weekly brainpower contest:

(For rules and to see other winnimng entries, visit the page Brainpower Tips Contest.)

Hi, I am not sure if you already have these techniques, but it always helps me to drink water and sit and breathe in a pattern for several minutes. For example. small breath in (slowly), big breath in (quickly), big breath out (quickly), small breath out (slowly) and repeat several times.

Also aside from helping concentration, a method to relax, other than being blindfolded and the other mediation techniques you mentioned, is to lay down, close your eyes, and pretend you are getting an imaginary massage, it works for me.

Truly Yours,
Jonathan From Miami, FL, USA

Thank you Jonathan, and I hope that you like the prize. Many of the breathing techniques that subscribers suggest seem to help clear the mind.

I haven't tried an imaginary massage, but it sounds relaxing. Thanks again for the entry.
