Reboot and Re-run your Brain with Dhyana

Article by: Dnyanada Sahasrabudhe

The “blue circle of impatience” is a state of mind when you have an urgent work to be done, but your PC abominably sits and lets you gaze into its never-ending ring of spinning dots. It is a subtle way for your computer to demand a “reboot” to flush background processes, correct software glitches and speed up its performance.

Just like your computer, your brain has multiple processes running in the background that slow your overall cognitive performance. For example, in the current work-from-home regime, your brain processes a lot of unnecessary sensory stimuli such as the honking of the cars, the chatter of your neighbors, the smell of your mom’s cooking. Such stimuli constantly battle for your attention and trigger your brain to enter into what scientists call the default mode network (DMN).

The default mode network (DMN) is defined as a large-scale brain network known for being active when a person is daydreaming or mind-wandering. The network is thought to be functionally associated with autobiographical information i.e., recollection of past events, self-reflection i.e., referring to traits and descriptions of one’s self, reflecting one’s emotional state or anticipation of future events i.e., wondering what you are having for lunch. Although essential in performing complex cognitive tasks, DMN is negatively correlated with effortful goal-oriented tasks and a hyperactive DMN is correlated with procrastination.

DFN can be modulated by meditative interventions. Multiple studies demonstrate that long-term meditators have lower activity in their DMN than non-meditators. The practice of meditation allows one to reboot their brain, and as a consequence reduces activation of your DMN and helps you focus better on your goals.

One major challenge that remains is how can a procrastinating-prone mind indulge in the practice of meditation, which in itself requires focus and discipline?

Dhyana’s smart ring tracks your heart rate variability (HRV), which is a well-known index of your meditative performance. By virtue of Dhyana’s mindfulness focus algorithm, you can trace how focused your meditative sessions are.

Our brain is an extraordinary bio machine, however, like every other device that you own, it demands frequent resets. Listen to your body, and give yourself the benefits of rebooting, resetting and re-running yourself with Dhyana.
