What is Monkey Brain syndrome?

“Monkey brain” syndrome is a phrase coined in the last few years by therapists for one of the latest ailments of our fast, competitive, internet drenched society! We are constantly multi-tasking and undertaking mindless activities fuelled by addictive technology, media stimulation, social networking mania and everyday life demands. Engaging with this frantic craziness has diminished our ability to complete simple tasks accurately, think clearly, accomplish a fulfilling day’s work, maintain a healthy body, develop meaningful relationships, grow and have fun. We may be losing control of our most important asset…Focused Brain Power.

Taming Strategies

Do you want to ‘tame that brain’?  Set aside some time to be alone with yourself in a quiet and peaceful place. Perhaps a park, art museum, library or comfortable room comes to mind. Think about the following questions:

  1. What can I eliminate that yields no or low value?
  2. What do I want more of that brings me fulfilment?

Write your answers and read them aloud. This step is your navigation system for change. Think about how you spend a typical day. Estimate how much time you spend on each activity, the reason why you do this specific thing and the benefits you get back. Getting a clear picture of the outcomes from your daily activities is the key to “taming your monkey brain.” You must eliminate unneeded and wasteful activities. Strive to spend more time on what gives you greatest value. When you get rid of something, invest this time wisely and don’t fall into the trap of adding more “monkey brain” activities.

How do I know if things have changed?

The litmus test for taming your monkey brain is being able to say that today’s activities are giving you outcomes you will be happy with one year from now. Living a fruitful and happy life is truly an “inside game.” Remember to do the taming strategy exercise every 30 days or more.

Knowing yourself extends to understanding how your brain is wired and how to use it for a meaningful life. Self-awareness of your brain potential and understanding of how you’re wired for super performance is your secret weapon.
