There’s a time in certain peoples lifes where they start to do things without knowledge, we call this a “Mindless Behavior”. Some of these things are OK, some are scary, and these tasks or habits are something alot of people would see as either OCD or some form subliminal control. This isn’t something that any one person can see or even highlight, It’s hidden!
We class this as a mindless behavior. While it’s very dormant in the occupants mind they’re unaware that they are indeed behaving as if they are OK with what they are doing. Alot of the time they can’t tell they’re doing these task or habits, Here’s some examples.
Example Mindless behavior as habits
- Picking your nose
- Biting your nails
- Shaking your leg while sitting
- Rocking back and forth
- Twirling your hair
- Rubbing your face
- Stroking your beard
- Grinding your teeth
These are all bad habits and ones that we don’t even realise that we’re doing them at the time! Another mindless behavior is seperate from this, it’s tasks like driving your car and not realising how you got home… Yes you drove home but the task itself was one of a mindless behavior set. These short task, that occur often can become one of a mindless behaviorism and that needs to be awknowledged.
I personally believe that these things do and could contribute to other disorders in humans, OCD being one of these things and I also feel that anxitety is too and can be triggers from the likes of a mindless behavior. This leads me onto other mental disorders such as depression, and things like a mindless task will often have an impact into your person mindset.
Remember if you don’t realise you’re doing it, then there may be an issue, it’s not usually something drasticly bad but its certainly one to note.
Smoking is a Mindless Behavior, while you want to have a cigarette, you’ll forget about the last time you had one, and then this too has terms into a mindless habit.
If you think you might be unaware of your mindless actions, then take a view from some of these studies.
If you have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), you might have an irrational fear of being contaminated by germs, or obsessively double-check things. You may even feel like a prisoner, trapped with your intrusive thoughts. Despite the fact that OCD can have a devastating impact on a person’s life, getting real help can be a challenge. If you have tried medications without success, it might be time to explore further treatment options.
You should know that mindfulness-based approaches have been proven-effective in treating OCD and anxiety disorders. They involve developing an awareness and acceptance of the unwanted thoughts, feelings, and urges that are at the heart of OCD. Combining mindfulness practices with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
The Mindfulness Workbook for OCD offers practical and accessible tools for managing the unwanted thoughts and compulsive urges that are associated with OCD.

OCD and Brain Behavior
An estimated 5 million Americans suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and live diminished lives in which they are compelled to obsess about something or to repeat a similar task over and over. Traditionally, OCD has been treated with Prozac or similar drugs. The problem with medication, aside from its cost, is that 30 percent of people treated don’t respond to it, and when the pills stop, the symptoms invariably return.
In Brain Lock, Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D., presents a simple four-step method for overcoming OCD that is so effective, it’s now used in academic treatment centers throughout the world. Proven by brain-imaging tests to actually alter the brain’s chemistry, this method doesn’t rely on psychopharmaceuticals. Instead, patients use cognitive self-therapy and behavior modification to develop new patterns of response to their obsessions. In essence, they use the mind to fix the brain.
Using the real-life stories of actual patients, Brain Lock explains this revolutionary method and provides readers with the inspiration and tools to free themselves from their psychic prisons and regain control of their lives. Get your copy online from here.
