My first propellor plane in ages - back in touch with the Wright Bros, Alcock and Brown, the Sopwith Camel and the Spitfire - or am I being too romantic about a horrendously early flight to Brum?

practical psychlogist says:

I take the flybe flight from Toulouse to Brum regularly and it is always a propellor jobbie. It shares one similarity with the Sopwith. The flight takes over two hours when in a 737 it takes around 90 minutes.

Sometimes you just gotta slow down and go with the airflow

Check this out from Oli B today on slowing down & creativity:

"At work, your brain will be predominantly producing beta waves, somewhere between 13 and 25 cycles per second. This is the predominant daytime state of talking, thinking, problem solving, and all the tasks of a typical day.

However, it is the alpha state, some 8-12 waves per second, that we are increasingly realizing is very important. It is when many people have their best ideas, when your imagination is really working. Some people manage to reach this state easily, for example, in a really good creative session. Others need consciously to seek to lower the speed of their busy daytime brain, through techniques such as brain gym, autogenic training, yoga or other methods of relaxation.

So relaxing can help us to have ideas."

practical psychologist says:

where did he say this? I would like to use it. Just writing a chapter on 'slowing down the mind' (with inspiration from Guy Claxton) now.
