I did a clinical study once where I was supposed to leave my hand in cold water while I smoked a cigarette (The study asked for daily smokers). There was an intro video made by the student who was trying to get her PH.D that insinuated 45 seconds was about the natural time frame people who completed the study were in for. I had mine in for over ten minutes until I basically got seriously bored. When I came out of the room the woman couldn’t believe it…I was the only one who had mine in anywhere that wasn’t within the suggested range. I’m convinced the study was about the power of suggestion (maybe even how it correlates with smokers) but I actually considered this might be a possibility which is why I think I was in longer. I think by questioning things we can have a better grasp on who we are and have intent in our actions. Also, just being mindful of intent throughout our day.
