ADAPTING is making something suitable for a new purpose. KREA believe that in order to change our thinking, mindset and heart, we must be ADAPTABLE. We may ask how one ADAPTS. After listening to Doctor Shimi Kang and her research we agree that using her study of the analogy P.O.D, will provide a strategy to assist with being adaptable. In this case we use a dolphin POD as an example, which is a group of dolphins. Dolphins are social creatures and they group in PODS (also called schools) of up to a dozen individuals for mating, hunting and protecting each other. Sometimes PODS join temporarily in places with an abundance of food forming a super pod, but it is not for a long time. However, we break down the acronym of P.O.D method as follows;
P – Stands for PLAY
Play is to engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose. Playing without rules brings excitement and fun. Play activates the frontal part of your brain, which is how we adapt. The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that controls important cognitive skills in humans, such as emotional expression, problem solving, memory, language, judgment, and sexual behaviours. It is the “control panel” of our personality and our ability to communicate allowing as to express freely.
O – Stands for OTHERS
Others is why we adapt. Social connection is the basic of life. Others is used to refer to a person or thing that is different or distinct from one already mentioned or known about. Your connection beyond yourself is why we change. Social connection improves physical health and mental and emotional well-being. Human beings are inherently social creatures. Social groups provide us with an important part of our identity, and more than that, they teach us a set of skills that help us to live our lives.
D – Stands for DOWNTIME
Downtime are moments of breakthrough. Downtime is important for your thinking to change a starting to believing in your financial success. Downtime can dramatically improve mental and physical health and our personal relationships.
POD is how we ADAPT, ADAPTING is how we survive
Playing finds new passion
When connecting with others finds new purpose
When resting in downtime, you find balance
