This is the term I use when I need to re-set myself. Imagine your brain is a computer. Just like computers, they can shut down or freeze when overloaded. When this happens you may have feelings of being overwhelmed or drained. How many times do we judge ourselves too harshly? There’s an adage about how we are our own worst critic and that, my friends, is being mindless. Now, mindless does not mean less intelligent. No, mindless is when you go through the motions. Sometimes, I get caught up in the clutter of a mindlessness minefield and when I’m aware of this happening I need to “control, alt, delete” and re-set myself, basically, clear my mental cache.
