Issues are composed by complex elements which are inserted in space and time. Its relationship is intricate and has a dynamic that gets nocuous effects in the emotional state. The only efficient way to interact with them is dealing by using the rationality, for this reason the mental and physical aspects are so important. 

The mental aspect always gets more attention than the physical aspect does when we solve matters. There are many methods, techniques and recommendations to solve problems. We can presume that the answer to the difficulties are mainly a product of the mental processes and that is the reason for them to be understood and interpreted.

Nevertheless, when we don´t include the physical aspect in the same way as the mental one, we forget that the human being is a mixture between the physical and the mental issues.

These two dimensions are conditioned mutually and cannot be split. Mental health not only depends of physical wellness. The mental aspect depends of the physical one due to is very determinant. There less cases in which they get a strong mental level that determines the physical state better than those cases where physical aspects affect the mental aspect.

On the other hand, physical conditions cannot be understood only from the illness ambit. In the same way that the understanding of mental conditions does not move in the mental health existence. This approaching’s don´t help us in the analysis.

Physical conditions are related to extenuation in the human body.

The mind needs some conditions to unwind properly.

The environment in which the mind processes are develop is important to get results, and if these processes are linked with an issue solution and not only in a creative activity (even though the creativity involves a problem resolution).

To understand this, we just need imagine situations like these: which level of productivity in an issue evaluation can be achieved by someone who is taking care a group of children in a kinder garden? Or how focused is a pilot in a plane during a 200 passengers flight?

Physical conditions that are related to the environment don’t allow to have a good focus for deal with a problem.

On the other hand, how efficient can be these same people after of finished their jobs? There is one wear factor that influences as well. The physical aspect conditioned the mental aspect!
The mental effort to manage the issues is used in two steps:

1.    Problem analysis
2.    Identify solutions

The factors which make a problem needs a deep treatment, this mean focus.
The solution, moreover, result from the skill of synthesize and conciliate connections among different aspects. To do this is necessary to have lucidity and inspiration.

The milieu in which the person is and the level of fatigue that someone is feeling allows us to determine the focus. The degree of relaxation and tranquility, both define the ability to connect all elements and to achieve answers. 

The focus is reached by working on the problem with concentrated energy. Many times, the synthesis that leads to the solution is simply reached by “moving away” from the problem. To focus, the physical environment in which the work is done is very important indeed, in fact, but it is equally significant that the body is well rested and well prepared.

If these aspects are not considered, the energy level is not appropriate for the task.

Therefore, it is recommended to analyze the problems independently of another activity and be carried out in environments that encourage contemplation. In the same way it is important to choose “the right moment”. Firs, it must not be influenced by other demands and in another hand, it must not produce dissipation. The greater the difficulty, the more necessary the recommendation.

Everyone knows their appropriate “places and moments” to focus on the analysis of a problem.
It is beneficial to consider that these moments and places are external to daily routine and responsibility. There are some people who prefer to be in a garden under the light of the lamps and another prefer to be sitting down in the stands of a stadium that is full of people.

Fatigue is a poor counselor.

The more one thinks that the interaction with the problems refers to the intense profession, the greater the possibility of the mistake and the inefficiency. Fatigue goes hand in hand with the problem, and at the same time it taps into it.

Problems are best be addressed if the body rested.

On the other hand, the ability to synthesize the connection between all the variables that exist both in the problem and its solution are strengthened better when the person is not be thinking too much about the dilemma as such.

The probabilities of those “Eureka” moments to appear are more frequent when it is outside the analysis of the problematic one. When the mind is not focused on the subject in question and is more lucid. As the well-known anecdote of Archimedes goes, which let us tot understands the displacement of the volume of water while it is in a bathtub or as also mentioned in the principle of “hydrostatic thrust”. Or Einstein’s afternoon naps.

The pressure that brings difficulties is not the most propitious to “combine” reflections in new and diverse ways, which in fact composes creativity.

In a rested body the brain is activated in order to clarify and “reinitiate” thus forming both new connections and associations. Reaching in this way the level of creativity that is needed to find solutions.

These “answers” arrive suddenly and seldom meet the desired expectations of the search. Moreover, precisely the wrong “programming” of this search leads to the solution being distanced from the problem. 

It usually happens that a saturated mind ends up finding an additional problem instead of a solution for these. Because that is exactly what the “analysis” does: since in the analysis it is distinguished and the parts of a whole are separated until they come to know their principles, their elements.

Usually the solution is simple, however, and in a curious way it is simpler, when the problem is more complex.

This aspect makes things more difficult to understand, which is obscured by the mental pressure of endless analysis and by lack of calm.

When the body rests, the brain also rests … hence the brain does its job.

People who perform tasks in which they must interact permanently with conflicts, these people should manage the breaks well. 

For your purpose to be effective, these cannot be extended for long periods of time. The dichotomy between Active and Inactive states must be respected. 

When the body and the brain are “active”, everything that this situation requires is justifiable (the environment in which it is done helps a lot, in all possible ways). But when you go to the “inactive” state you must stop doing everything with the same seriousness but with the considerations in this state.

It is usual that the pause occurs in physical terms but does not always involve the mental aspect. For this reason, the problems accompany the people where they are affecting their quality of life. 
The difficulty of respecting the state of “inactivity” is explained by the mistaken perception of “urgency”. When a problem is interpreted as “serious”, this is understood as imperative, but they do not understand that “inactivity” can show an effective way to the solution. On the contrary, “inactivity” is associated with carelessness and irresponsibility. This is because of the lack of knowledge of the working mechanics of the brain. Because he precisely “begins” his work when people say that their work has been done.
If a problem needs to be solved, the pause in the usual tasks must be carried out with rigor. A complete pause involves body and mind. This is the signal that says to the brain: “it’s time to work” …

The explanation of most unresolved problems is in the administration of environments, recesses and pauses in the reflective approach.

This management is not simple, as by making an analogy with the situation of a soldier performing his tasks feeling afraid of the roar of projectiles. Not only skill, but also character is required.
If a problem is not solved this overwhelms, confuses, angers anxiety, so when you want to schedule breaks, recesses, abstractions and breaks this cannot easily be done. It requires courage, self-confidence and knowledge of the dynamics that support conflicts. Everybody calls this acting with a “Clear head”, for those who know the subject, this is about “solving problems as it should”.

Winston Churchill was one of the people who had the most problems to face and solve, to assign morning work from his bed and having a good breakfast. That was the physical environment that favored him and the rest he privileged. It is possible that Churchill’s genius is in debate but not his character and mastery of the methods of government. On the other hand, Napoleon recognized as a genius, used to take small breaks on the back of his horse and from this rest his decisions emerged. To Churchill his method helped him in the ultimate attainment of successful results, and to Napoleon being a genius could not prevent his final defeat.

Problem solving has nothing to do with being a genius, but everything has to do with knowledge, method and discipline.
All this is not a call to laxity. This is just a consideration that goes out of context.
Lax people are not only unable to face problems effectively but are themselves a problem in fact.
These orientations are directed to the persistent person, to the impenitent traveler on the paths that lead to victory. That man who is tired who is eager to continue in the midst of hard struggle against adversity.

This is for these people, they are the recipients of the key principle that exists to solve the biggest problems: stop, to move forward.
