Did you know that your brain is a sexual organ?
I never really thought of my brain like that before – probably because there are couple more prevalent sex organs that immediately come to mind. (You know what I’m talking about.)
But studies have verified that the brain is a sexual organ – the brain actually secretes hormones that control sexual processes.
Of course our brain does much more than determine much of our sexual behavior. It controls everything our body does – sexual and non-sexual.
It’s a fascinating thing, the brain.
Yet so many of us insist on …
Training Our Brains To Think Like A Bag Of Hammers
Phone texts. Email pings. Invites to play Candy Crush Saga on Facebook. Tweets about what’s new on mind numbing reality TV. Staring into a computer screen for hours on end.
Like we don’t already have enough distractions in our lives from giving 100% to our role as husbands. To our wives and children.
It’s annoying as hell to me, how we abuse our brains with … mind candy.
I guess because the more I see how these “urgent” but unimportant influences dominate my life, the more I begin to realize how much we’re overusing our brains – on senseless issues that don’t enhance our own lives. It’s constantly in hyperactive mode.
And this type of hyperactivity leaves no room for our own original thoughts. It’s a time vampire preying on every hour that life gives you.
We have too much “busy work” to do. And by the time we’re finished doing it, we don’t want to do anything else that’s actually meaningful or worthwhile.
We’re over stimulated.
So why bother to use your brain effectively when you can do senseless crap all day, right?
Healthy Brain Activity, Healthy Sexual Activity
Why am I making such a big deal about this? Because it is a big deal!
If you want a better sex life, a stronger relationship with your wife, genuine understanding between the two of you and meaningful communication, you need to effectively use that powerful sex organ between your ears.
And you can’t do that if other things constantly distract you – things that take up all of your mental “shelf space.”
Yes. It’s tougher today than it was thirty years ago – with all of the “ornaments” of today’s society, but that’s what makes it so much more important.
Luckily there’s something you can do, every day, that will help combat the effects of “brain bombardment.”
15 Minute Daily Reboot
Now the brain is the most powerful computer that we know of. Of course it can help us increase the quality of our sex life. But it can do so much more than that.
And as a husband who values his wife and his relationship with her, I started to search for a way to use my brain more constructively, to enhance my role as a husband – and our overall relationship.
But the rule was it had to be that quick and effective. Something that could be done in a couple of minutes a day.
So that’s what I’ve started to do:
Every day, for 15 minutes each morning, I shut off every electronic device in my house. My phone, laptop, TV and anything that beeps or blinks.
I’ll sit on my recliner with a notebook besides me.
This is the only question I ask myself:
What can I do to make a greater contribution to my marriage?
Then … I stop thinking! I give my brain the rest it truly deserves.
You know what ends up happening?
An idea or insight will pop into my mind that I’m going to write down in my notebook. Something I’ll be able use in my day that is unique to my own original thoughts. Something that will put a smile on my wife’s face.
During this time, I’m not distracted. I’m not trying to multi-task. No. All of my focus and energy is dedicated to one thing – improving my role in marriage.
Sure within a twenty four hour day, fifteen minutes doesn’t seem like much – but I can assure you, your brain will get more out of that fifteen minutes of peace than it will the other twenty three hours and forty five minutes of utter chaos.
Try it and let me know what you think!
