Problem Solving by Multisensory Immersion

Sensory immersion is deliberate overstimulation as a meditative exercise.

Immersion can take many forms, depending on what type of activity a person is performing and what is required to become an expert performer. Regardless of the type of immersion, achieving it can be very rewarding.

Make use of all your five senses. Apply your senses to a problem and see what comes up. You may be amazed! Sensory inputs can bring up memories, provide new insights into an old problem, and spark new ideas. You may surprise yourself with new perspectives, understand the things better, generate solutions more quickly, and have more fun. Daydreaming often works wonders. Close your eyes and let your mind wonder. Spend some time to work through each of your senses.
