9 Extraordinary Superpowers, You Didn’t Know You Already Possessed!

What we think we “know” on earth, is just a little drop of water in the ocean! Following are some more drops to enhance your knowledge. 

1. Telekinesis

Telekinesis is basically a power or ability to control the physical world with the power of your mind. It’s like moving a particular object without even touching it, but just by thinking about it. A common belief is that psychokinesis works by energy fields or by some sort of “waves” of psychic energy which are actually dense enough to push an object or control it. There are many ways to put your telekinetic abilities into practice. One basic way is to concentrate on an object and thinking of your goal i.e. moving object, which gives the energy or waves to move that object (as per the belief mentioned above). It’ll take time to get the desired result nevertheless it could be worth it.Telekinesis is sometimes also referred as psychokinesis, mind-over-matter or object manipulation.

2. Hypnotism

Hypnotism is the process through which the hypnotist bypasses your conscious mind and connects directly with your sub-conscious mind. It is used for many purposes like getting someone to stop smoking, treating phobias, increasing confidence and self-esteem or motivating someone. It is necessary to point out that hypnotism is pure science and it has nothing to do with black magic or something. You can learn more about hypnotism at sites like:http://www.miltonericksonhypnosis.com or http://stealth1.secrets-101.com. Although it is tough to learn, it can be useful in everyday living. 3. Telepathy Telepathy is a common power possessed by every human being. It is sending a message from one person to another, beyond any medium(excluding mind). We, in everyday life, many a times come across through situations when we are remembering someone or are wishing to talk to someone and at that moment itself that person calls us. Which is a practical example of telepathy. It is not a big deal to practice telepathy. There is one common game which can help you improve your telepathic skills. What you have to do is, tell your friend to think about any random number from 1 to 10 (being in same room) and you concentrate on his mind and try to catch what he is thinking. Take your time. Take the first number which comes to your mind and compare the number with the number which your friend thought about. This will increase telepathic communication between You and your friend. You can increase your game level by increasing the number from 1-10 to 1-100 and so on. Also, you can be at far distance rather being in same room and practice it. It is easy to do and you can easily improvise your telepathic skills by practicing it more often.

4. Psychomancy

Psychomancy is one of the most interesting psychic ability found very rare, used to see past of any object. Practically it is used by psychics hired by police and detectives when a object is found of a missing person, so that they could know about that person by knowing the past of that object.As this ability is rare, its hard to learn.

5. Clairsentience

Clairsentience which means clear sensing, is ability to sense past/future, positive/negative energy,emotional state of a person or object by just watching or touching them.Many people have this ability without consciously knowing it. They feel good or bad about a new person they just met, or a house they recently visited, or a thing they are going to purchase.

6. Astral Projection or Third eye

Astral projection is an experience in which soul leaves the physical body and travel through the astral plane.It allows you to visit places or people far away from you without physically going there. There is a myth that practicing astral projection is dangerous. But as I said, it is a myth. Visit : http://themindunleashed.org/2013/06/20-astral-projection-myths-busted.html for more.

7. Aura Reading

Aura is a Greek-Latin word which means “hue of air” or “shine”. Aura, basically, is a shine or color surrounding each living as well as non-living thing. Your aura shows your emotional/physical qualities, positive/negative feelings, thoughts, past/future and many more things. You can learn and practice reading your own and as well as others auras.

8. Law of Attraction

Law of attraction is the most basic and easiest yet most powerful technique. Many people must know about the movie and book The Secret which tells you every basic thing about the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction simply says that “What you think is what you get”. It is a universal truth that what you ask for is what you get whether it is positive or negative. Because your conscious mind only knows the difference between negative and positive. However, the part of your mind which helps you to get what you’ve thought is the sub-conscious mind and it oesn’t know the difference between them. So, it is essential to never think negative or you’ll be served with what you’ve thought. If you want to practice, first of all you have to relax your self for 5 to 10 minutes. Then meditate on it, concentrate on it, feel it, you must feel like the goal is already achieved,  enjoy the achievement, and show some gratitude for it. Then keep doing this until the goal is achieved.

9. Déjà Vu

Déjà vu which means “already seen” is the phenomenon of having strong sensation of having already seen or already felt the event or experience you are going through. For example, sometimes you are in a deep conversation with your friend and suddenly feel like you’ve been through this before or sometimes you visit a place for a first time and you feel like you’ve been there before.This feeling or urge you have is “Déjà vu”. There is a belief that you experience it if you’ve been there or talked like that in your previous life.

How Remote Work Affects Your Productivity And Wellbeing (Backed By Data)

The internet is flooded with articles about remote work and its benefits or drawbacks. But in reality, the remote work experience is so subjective that it’s impossible to draw general conclusions and issue one-size-fits-all advice about it. However, one thing that’s universal and rock-solid is data. Data-backed findings and research about remote work productivity give us a clear picture of how our workdays have changed and how work from home affects us—because data doesn’t lie.

In this article, we’ll look at three decisive findings from a recent data study and two survey reports concerning remote work productivity and worker well-being.

1. We Take Less Frequent Breaks

Your home can be a peaceful or a distracting place depending on your living and family conditions. While some of us might find it hard to focus amidst the sounds of our everyday life, other people will tell you that the peace and quiet while working from home (WFH) is a major productivity booster. Then there are those who find it hard to take proper breaks at home and switch off at the end of the workday.

But what does data say about remote work productivity? Do we work more or less in a remote setting?

Let’s take a step back to pre-pandemic times (2014, to be exact) when a time tracking application called DeskTime discovered that 10% of most productive people work for 52 minutes and then take a break for 17 minutes.

Recently, the same time tracking app repeated that study to reveal working and breaking patterns during the pandemic. They found that remote work has caused an increase in time worked, with the most productive people now working for 112 minutes and breaking for 26 minutes.[1]

Now, this may seem rather innocent at first—so what if we work for extended periods of time as long as we also take longer breaks? But let’s take a closer look at this proportion.

While breaks have become only nine minutes longer, work sprints have more than doubled. That’s nearly two hours of work, meaning that the most hard-working people only take three to four breaks per 8-hour workday. This discovery makes us question if working from home (WFH) really is as good a thing for our well-being as we thought it was. In addition, in the WFH format, breaks are no longer a treat but rather a time to squeeze in a chore or help children with schoolwork.

Online meetings are among the main reasons for less frequent breaks. Pre-pandemic meetings meant going to another room, stretching your legs, and giving your eyes a rest from the computer. In a remote setting, all meetings happen on screen, sometimes back-to-back, which could be one of the main factors explaining the longer work hours recorded.

2. We Face a Higher Risk of Burnout

At first, many were optimistic about remote work’s benefits in terms of work-life balance as we save time on commuting and have more time to spend with family—at least in theory. But for many people, this was quickly counterbalanced by a struggle to separate their work and personal lives. Buffer’s 2021 survey for the State of Remote Work report found that the biggest struggle of remote workers is not being able to unplug, with collaboration difficulties and loneliness sharing second place.[2]

Buffer’s respondents were also asked if they are working more or less since their shift to remote work, and 45 percent admitted to working more. Forty-two percent said they are working the same amount, while 13 percent responded that they are working less.

Longer work hours and fewer quality breaks can dramatically affect our health, as long-term sitting and computer use can cause eye strain, mental fatigue, and other issues. These, in turn, can lead to more severe consequences, such as burnout and heart disease.

Let’s have a closer look at the connection between burnout and remote work.

McKinsey’s report about the Future of work states that 49% of people say they’re feeling some symptoms of burnout.[3] And that may be an understatement since employees experiencing burnout are less likely to respond to survey requests and may have even left the workforce.

From the viewpoint of the employer, remote workers may seem like they are more productive and working longer hours. However, managers must be aware of the risks associated with increased employee anxiety. Otherwise, the productivity gains won’t be long-lasting. It’s no secret that prolonged anxiety can reduce job satisfaction, decrease work performance, and negatively affect interpersonal relationships with colleagues.[4]

3. Despite everything, We Love Remote Work

An overwhelming majority—97 percent—of Buffer report’s survey respondents say they would like to continue working remotely to some extent. The two main benefits mentioned by the respondents are the ability to have a flexible schedule and the flexibility to work from anywhere.

McKinsey’s report found that more than half of employees would like their workplace to adopt a more flexible hybrid virtual-working model, with some days of work on-premises and some days working remotely. To be more exact, more than half of employees report that they would like at least three work-from-home days a week once the pandemic is over.

Companies will increasingly be forced to find ways to satisfy these workforce demands while implementing policies to minimize the risks associated with overworking and burnout. Smart companies will embrace this new trend and realize that adopting hybrid models can also be a win for them—for example, for accessing talent in different locations and at a lower cost.

Remote Work: Blessing or Plight?

Understandably, workers worldwide are tempted to keep the good work-life aspects that have come out of the pandemic—professional flexibility, fewer commutes, and extra time with family. But with the once strict boundaries between work and life fading, we must remain cautious. We try to squeeze in house chores during breaks. We do online meetings from the kitchen or the same couch we watch TV shows from, and many of us report difficulties switching off after work.

So, how do we keep our private and professional lives from hopelessly blending together?

Advertising

The answer is that we try to replicate the physical and virtual boundaries that come naturally in an office setting. This doesn’t only mean having a dedicated workspace but also tracking your work time and stopping when your working hours are finished. In addition, it means working breaks into your schedule because watercooler chats don’t just naturally happen at home.

If necessary, we need to introduce new rituals that resemble a normal office day—for example, going for a walk around the block in the morning to simulate “arriving at work.” Remote work is here to stay. If we want to enjoy the advantages it offers, then we need to learn how to cope with the personal challenges that come with it.
