It’s a very simple law:
“When something distracts you, it changes the situation you are in”
The best way to experience the power of law of distraction is when a kid a crying for something and mother points out towards something else and kid completely forgets his original demand.
Law of distraction can be easily experienced when you are driving at a speed of 110 km/hr on a freeway and you take off your eyes for a couple of seconds from the road ahead of you.
Both these examples show the power of importance of “Law of distraction”
This law is really helpful when you are stressed, anxious or depressed.
“Anxiety and fear comes from thoughts about future.
Sorrow and grief comes from thoughts about past.”
When you take away your mind from these thoughts, you live in present.
When you involve yourself in some art E.g. painting, music, dance etc., you divert your attention to that art evoking the law of distraction. Same law gets evoked when you play a sport, learn new things, make new friends, visit new places etc. That’s what makes us feel better.
A temporary distraction may cause your mind to get back to original situation. To reduce the impact of stress and anxiety, permanent distraction can help. Developing a hobby is an example of permanent distractions you get into that habit deeper and deeper. Regular practice of yoga, meditation and breathing can prevent unwanted thoughts entering into your mind.
