Rub and Yawn

Posts Tagged ‘anaten

We’re talking about mentally shutting down, “doping off” or “going anaten” as it is sometimes called. This happens in life too, not just in session. It’s when your attention suddenly goes out of your control and you get all foggy and if you don’t do something about it immediately you’re likely to fall asleep on the spot. It’s not harmful unless you’re driving a car or something, but it wastes your time. This is different from simply feeling tired because it’s been a long day and it’s time for bed.

The shutting-down phenomenon is what can make “solo processing”  (mental drills by yourself) very hard to do. Touching stuff forcefully right now is the solution to this difficulty.

You know that being slapped around the face or having a bucket of cold water thrown over you would wake you up, but that is not too real. A very workable solution is to stand up if you can, and urgently contact things around you like the chair or table or floor. Stamp your feet. Hit your hands together. Squeeze the chair. Bang your hand on the table. Make loud noises. This sort of thing.

Do this for a short while, maybe a minute, and you will stop shutting down, and get back to normal.

Now, whatever it was that caused the shutting down to occur is still there and might trigger a shutting down later. If you know the area, you can have a go at it with proper three-part Rub & Yawn procedure. And if appropriate you definitely should discharge it as you know it is very hot!

But recognize that it is very hot, and sometimes it will start to flatten you and you will have to take this action very fast to stay on top of it while doing regular Rub & Yawn on a topic.

Remember: Suddenly falling asleep? Touch stuff! Hard! Right now!
