  • How Spontaneity is Beneficial For Our Mental Health?

    In today’s world where the human lifestyle has been revolutionized by technology, which has brought increased connectivity even over the longest distances, the routines of employed adults and students have become highly occupied. When there was less of technology and geographical connectivity, people would take a long time to reach school or work and they would return home before sunset. Today, working hours have been stretched and people are even working during the night. Everyone’s schedule is pre-decided and occupied. This leaves little ‘spontaneity’ in their lives. Spontaneity is the unpredictability in one’s behavior. Spontaneity is hardly seen nowadays, not only because of the hectic lives of people but also because of current pandemic restrictions.

    A pre-decided set or pattern of activities definitely makes life boring but did you know that a repetitive pattern being followed over and over again throughout the years makes the mind dull too. The mind becomes adapted to regular routines and even the body starts to behave mechanically.

    Have you ever wondered that what is so special in friends visiting you suddenly when you didn’t expect them? Events like this refresh your mind and change your routine activities for a while.

    Spontaneity in one’s behavior is highly beneficial for rejuvenating inactive energy circulation in their brain since the brain starts to think differently when an unprecedented event happens. It increases alertness and improves performance.

    However, spontaneity should be practiced will full awareness to avoid any unwanted occurrences, just because of lack of care.
