When wake up in the morning and go to the toilet, try brush your teeth with your non-dominant hand including opening the tube and applying toothpaste. You can also try it with other morning activity like styling your hair, shaving, applying makeup, eating or using TV remote. For a real workout, use only one hand (your non-dominant hand) to do task like buttoning a shirt, tying a shoe, or getting dressed.

Brain Training

Activate The Other Side Of Your Brain

This training requires you to use the opposite side of your brain instead of the side you normally use. Consequently, all those circuits, connections, and brain areas involved in using your dominant hand are inactive, while their counterparts on the other side of your brain are suddenly required to direct a set of behaviors in which they usually don't participate.

This type of brain training can result in a rapid and substantial expansion of circuits in the parts of the cortex that control and process tactile information from the hand.

Another training that associates unusual sensory and motor pathways in your cortex with a routine activity is to use your feet to put your socks and underwear in the laundry basket or pick out your shoes for the day.

When you getting older, you start to notice things like unable to remember what was on the grocery list you left at home, forget where you put the car keys or not remember where you park your car. Then, you jump to the conclusion that aging is an inevitable slide to forgetfulness, confusion and even Alzheimer's disease.

Brain   training and exercises

Contrary to popular belief, the mental decline most people experience is not due to the steady death of nerve cells. Instead, it usually results from the decrease number of dendrites, the branches of nerve cells that forms the basis of memory. Dendrites receive information across connections called synapses. The dendrites can die if connections aren't regularly switched on. This reduce the brain ability to put new information into memory as well as to retrieve old information.

Just as cross training help you maintain overall physical fitness, brain training can help you with maintaining a continuing level of mental fitness strength, and flexibility as you age. The ideal brain training involve activating many different brain areas to increase the range of mental motion. Recent brain research has led to new approaches that can be incorporated into everyday activities. By adopting these training, you may actually enhance your brain's ability to deal with the declines in mental agility.

The New Science Of Brain Training

Brain training and exercises that are showed in this website is different from other types of brain exercises which usually involve logic puzzle or solitary practice session that resemble tests. Instead, the concept of our brain exercises it to presenting the brain with unusual or unexpected experiences using various combinations of your physical senses (vision, smell, touch, taste, and hearing) as well as your emotional sense.

The aim of our brain training is to provide you with a balanced, comfortable, and enjoyable way to stimulate your brain

The brain training stimulates patterns of neural activity that can create more connections between brain areas and encourage the production of natural brain nutrients, called neurotrophins. Neurotrophins dramatically increase the size and complexity of dendrites and also make surrounding cells stronger and resistant to the effect of aging.

A good brain is an active brain, while inaction leads to reduced brain fitness. Train your brain now and enhance the overall health of your brain as you grow older.

There are a lot of hypnosis myths have been created due to all sorts of weird associations from stage hypnotists, the media and superstition. This can be bad because some of the myths put some people off using hypnosis to help make positive changes in their lives. Below are the most common myths of hypnosis.


Myth 1: Hypnosis make me helpless

During the trance you are not immobilized or paralyzed. You know exactly where you are at all times. You can change your sitting position, scratch yourself, sneeze or cough. You can also hear sounds around you, for example the phone ringing. You can open your eyes and leave the trance at any moment.

Myth 2: I can become stuck in a hypnotic trance and never come out

No one ever gets stuck in hypnosis. Since you are the one who is in control, you can choose to leave hypnosis at any time. If your hypnotherapist were to leave the room and fail to return, you might eventually fall asleep for a brief nap and after 5 or 10 minutes, you will wake up naturally. If an emergency were to occur (such as a fire in the building), you would recognize the urgency of the situation and return to full alertness.

Myth 3: Hypnosis can be bad for my health

It is quite the opposite. Hypnosis is a safe and natural process. One fact that most people are unaware of is that we undergo hypnosis several times in our daily lives. For example, while driving along a highway, very often, people suddenly discover that they have lost consciousness for several minutes. This is actually an example of momentary hypnotism. It is out of the question for anybody to in any way be hurt by hypnosis.

Myth 4: Hypnosis is part of the occult

Much of what people believe about hypnosis comes from what they've seen in movies or read in fiction which are seldom based upon fact. Hypnosis is actually a perfectly natural state of mind which most people pass in and out of several times daily such as daydreaming. Hypnosis has nothing to do with magic wands and occult abilities, even if some people consider it pure magic how their symptoms simply vanished, and insights increased.

Myth 5: Hypnotist have special power

Hypnotists have no special or supernatural powers. The competent hypnotherapist has been educated in the nature, history and practical uses for hypnosis. He/she has been thoroughly trained in safe and effective techniques to guide a person into hypnosis and using methods to affect positive change in that person's life.

Myth 6: The hypnotist has complete control of my actions

Hypnosis requires voluntary participation on the part of the patient. You can never be persuade against your own will. Usually, a person in the hypnotic state already determines his/her own level of participation in the process. Therefore, if a suggestion given is unacceptable you, it will simply be rejected and will usually startle you instantly out of hypnosis.

Myth 7: People who get hypnotized are weak minded

The opposite is actually true. Hypnosis requires intelligence and the capability to concentrate. Motivation and cooperation are also necessary for success, none of which are easily achieved by the weak-willed or weak-minded. The fact is scientific research has proven that those of above average intelligence and creativity are actually the best candidates for hypnosis.

Myth 8: I won’t remember anything that happened when I were hypnotized

While amnesia may occur in very rare cases, people generally remember everything that occurred while they were hypnotized. However, hypnosis can have a significant effect on memory. Posthypnotic amnesia can lead an individual to forget certain things that occurred before or during hypnosis. However, this effect is generally limited and temporary.

Myth 9: Hypnosis can help me remember the exact details of my past

While hypnosis can be used to enhance memory, the effects have been dramatically exaggerated in popular media. Research has found that hypnosis does not lead to significant memory enhancement or accuracy, and hypnosis can actually lead to false or distorted memories.

There are plenty of frequently ask question (FAQ) about hypnosis. Below are 6 of the most popular FAQ about hypnosis.


FAQ 1: Can I be hypnotized?

Anyone with normal intelligence and ability to concentrate are able to learn the hypnotic condition. Research has shown that a large number of people are more hypnotizable than they believe. If you are interested in being hypnotized, it is important to remember to approach the experience with an open mind. Research has suggested that individuals who view hypnosis in a positive light tend to respond better.

FAQ 2: How does hypnosis feel?

The experience of hypnosis can vary from one person to another. But generally, you will feel drowsy as you begin to enter hypnosis. Your eyelids will become heavy and fatigue will gradually move over you, giving way to a delightful sense of relaxation. This is the same feeling that happens to you naturally late at night when preparing to go to sleep.

FAQ 3: Is hypnosis sleeping?

Hypnosis is not sleeping. In fact, most people find they actually have a heightened sense of awareness and focus. They are able to hear what is said and control their responses and involvement in the process. But some people may get so relaxed and lead them to fall asleep if they are already tired. This is no problem though, because some parts of consciousness keep listening to the therapist's voice.

FAQ 4: How long will it take before the hypnosis works?

There is no solid answer here. Since every person is different, each situation comes with its own set of variables. It should be said that though sometimes a permanent result can be achieved after two or three sessions, most cases require several sessions.

FAQ 5: What effects does hypnosis have?

Hypnosis can be used to dramatically alter perceptions. Relaxation come from hypnosis helps to bring about a balance within the system, of mind, body and soul, emotionally and physically. The ancient method of hypnosis is more used as a complement in medicine where it has proved to be a valuable alternative to drugs. Hypnosis has been used for thousands of years to effectively speed up healing and relieve stress symptoms.

FAQ 6: Are hypnosis and brainwashing the same thing?

Brainwashing typically involves sleep deprivation, malnutrition and denial of one's most basic needs. It requires many days and often months to accomplish. Eventually the victim is pushed to the edge of psychosis until he robotically responds to any command given. Hypnosis, on the other hand, is not based upon discomfort, but rather in assisting the client to become as comfortable and relaxed as possible. The objective is not compliance, but cooperation.

Believe it or not, you can do the hypnosis yourself rather than via a third party (hypnotherapist), though it can sound complicated or impossible to those who have never tried. As a matter of fact, all hypnosis is really self hypnosis because even if it's the therapist who talks and leads you, it is still you who accomplishes the hypnotic condition. The more you experience hypnosis, the quicker and easier it becomes.

Example Of Self Hypnosis In Everyday Life

Many people have experienced a trance like state many times in everyday life although they may not have called it hypnosis. For example, daydreaming which is so real to the child that the dream or imagined situation takes the place of ordinary reality, is essentially self hypnosis. In adult life, many people still daydream occasionally and some will have episodes of absent-mindedness or abstraction at times, in which they are, as we say, in a world of their own.

Free guide to self hypnosis

For instance, when driving down a familiar road, you may suddenly realize that you have travelled several miles without being able to remember details of that part of the journey. However, while driving, you were perfectly competent, adjusting to road conditions, avoiding dogs and children, stopping at red lights and so on, and reached your destination safely. Yet you realize that you have no memory at all of the last few miles and probably cannot remember what you were thinking about during that period.

No doubt you can think of dozens of other examples from your own experience. The main difference between these sorts of trance and self hypnosis are specific motivation and suggestions towards a goal. Self hypnosis is deliberate and with a purpose.

Benefits That You Can Gain From Self Hypnosis

Self hypnosis helps you to relax your body, lets stress hormones subside, and distracts your mind from unpleasant thoughts.

The relaxation achieved with self hypnosis can be intense. You are focused and open to suggestion, so you can gain several potential benefits in the field of personal development through this technique. Some example of them are;
• Stop unwanted habits such as smoking
• Manage stress
• Increase concentration
• Improve athletic performance
• Improve self-confidence
• Improve sleeping
• Achieve goals, such as weight loss or exam success

Learn Self Hypnosis Today

There are times when you may need to access states of hypnosis, relaxation and resource. For example, maybe you'll need to instantly hypnotically prepare before an unexpected speech or some other unforeseen situation where you need to perform at your best. Those who master self hypnosis, master many of their own physical processes. When you have the ability to self hypnotize instantly, all kinds of things in your life will start to feel possible.

Hypnosis is a trance like state in which you have heightened focus, concentration and inner absorption. In the hypnotic state, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and you can concentrate intensely on a specific thought, memory, feeling or sensation while blocking out distractions. In this state, your subconscious mind is at the forefront and the conscious mind is subdued. Hypnosis mind control works with the subconscious mind because it is the part of the brain that operates in the background during both sleeping and waking stages.

Hypnosis mind control

In hypnotic state, you are very open to whatever the suggestions. If a hypnotist tells you that you're eating strawberry ice cream, you'll "taste" it and "feel" a cool sensation in your throat as you swallow precisely because the reasoning, evaluating and judging part of your conscious mind is bypassed.  You are not really "thinking" in the traditional sense but instead, you are "experiencing" without questioning. It can be compared to the feeling of immersion in an absorbing book or film, when you're pretty oblivious to the world around.

When you are being hypnosis, you may lose inhibitions and do suggested things you would otherwise find mortifying, like a public rendition of the birdie song. But your sense of morality and safety are entrenched deep in your subconscious so you won't do something dangerous like trying to fly out of the tenth floor window, convinced that you're a bird. You also won't do something that you really don't want to. Your free will remains intact and you don't lose control over your behavior. The control is with you, your own control of yourself, your mind and body.

Hypnosis mind control has the unusual characteristic of combining concentration with relaxation, which allows you to focus on your problem, anxiety or development-need and remain relaxed.

Such an experience can break the link between an idea, memory or thought and its attendant anxiety and tension. It can help change what you need to change and develop what you need to develop.

Suggestions and other hypnotic phenomena, therapeutic interventions, visualization and language structures are made and utilized in hypnosis mind control, so you can achieve something you want, or something that will benefit you, and in this hypnotic state, that acceptance goes even deeper than it would in non-hypnotic states.

Delta brainwave are the brain’s slowest frequency range cycling at a rate of 1-4 times per second (e.g. 1 Hz – 4 Hz), but are the highest in amplitude and are responsible for the slowest form of mental processing. Like other slower brainwaves patterns, delta brainwave are generated in the right hemisphere, though they may be observed in widespread patterns throughout various parts of the brain. Delta brainwave become active in your brain when you are in the deeper stages of sleep (e.g. stage 3 and stage 4). If you’ve ever woken up and felt irritable, unconscious, confused, or disorientated, you likely woke up during your delta stage of sleep. They are associated with being completely unconscious (i.e. you usually won’t know or remember anything while Delta brainwave are dominant).

delta brainwave

People with high amounts of delta brainwave have been found to have increased empathy (or understanding of others’ emotions) and access to the unconscious mind. Individuals who are therapists, guides, teachers, and those into professions which involve helping others tend to have delta brainwave while awake. It has been said that this unconscious brainwave give them more understanding and access to other individuals’ mental and emotional state.

Benefits of increasing delta

Release of Anti-Aging Hormones
One of the associated benefits of increasing your delta brainwave is the release of anti-aging hormones. The delta brainwave pattern stimulates the release of melatonin and DHEA, the powerful anti-aging hormones. The delta brainwave are also associated with decreased levels of cortisol, a hormone linked to stress that has been scientifically proven to speed up the aging process.

State of Empathy
Delta brainwave can provide you with the ability to read other peoples emotions and determine their feelings at unconscious levels. In healthy amounts, delta brainwave cause a person to have an advanced state of empathy, understanding, and compassion for others. If you are always able to relate to others and can read other people’s minds, you probably have more delta than the average person. If you find yourself getting into trouble for not being considerate enough or for stepping on other people’s toes, you may have less overall delta brainwave activity.

Extreme Bliss
Advanced meditation practices and yogic traditions have associated the delta brainwave frequency range with a feeling of all-encompassing bliss. Since most people aren’t able to consciously experience the delta brainwave state, it may be tough to feel extreme bliss from the delta waves like the yogis, monks, or advanced meditators. With that said, there have been people that have testified to feeling the bliss associated with the delta wave while performing extremely deep meditation.

Advanced Healing of Body and Mind
The delta brainwave rhythm is known to completely rejuvenate, replenish, and heal the entire body and brain. The delta brainwave revives the body after a hard day by regenerating necessary chemicals while a person is asleep. Due to the deepest levels of relaxation that the delta wave provides, the body and mind are easily able to restore themselves after minor stress, a rigorous workout, or after boosting your brain power.

Human Growth Hormone (H.G.H.) Release
The delta brainwave is associated with the stimulation of the pituitary gland, which in-turn, is able to release human-growth-hormone (H.G.H.). It doesn’t release enough for you to skyrocket in height and weight. The delta wave will not provide adults with a second version of puberty. With that said, there is evidence that it does release slight amounts of H.G.H. in certain individuals. If you are looking to increase your H.G.H., you should definitely consider using delta brainwave entrainment and evaluate how it works out for you!

Connection with Unconscious Mind
Though the alpha and theta wave are capable of bridging the gap between conscious thoughts and the subconscious mind, the delta wave allows us to connect deeper. Iit allows us to connect with the deepest possible level of our consciousness. The goal of many meditation practices is to experience and consciously control the unconscious mind. The subconscious mind, or our brain’s right-hemisphere, becomes activated when slower brainwaves like alpha, theta, and delta waves kick in. If you spend too much time in beta, it may feel incredible to finally relax and give yourself a chance to connect with your deepest sense of awareness.

Deepest Possible Level of Mind and Body Relaxation
Delta wave while a person is conscious or awake, are extremely rare. However, advanced meditators and infants, are 2 groups of people that are able to enjoy the deeply relaxing benefits of the delta wave. The delta wave is associated with extreme relaxation, yet completely unconscious mental processes.

Perfect Intuition
Ever have a powerful gut-instinct that helped you make a good decision? Or a gut-instinct that you should’ve followed? If we get ourselves too caught up in the upper brainwave patterns of beta, our intuitiveness becomes severely damaged. As you increase your theta brainwaves and your delta brainwaves, your intuition will increase and so will your ability to recognize the feelings in your “gut.” There are some disagreements as to whether or not the theta brainwave patterns are better for intuition vs. the delta brainwave patterns, but most research suggests that if you can become consciously aware in the delta brainwave state, you will have a nearly perfect sense of intuition.

Connecting with the Spiritual Body
Many consider the delta wave to bridge the conscious mind with higher planes of reality, the subconscious mind and the unconscious mind. Advanced spiritual gurus have considered the lowest brainwave pattern, delta, one that connects their spirit and their body to a universal life energy. Becoming consciously aware of experiencing the delta brainwave frequencies has been associated with the deepest sense of spirituality, highest sense of internal awareness, and feeling directly connected to a Higher Power.

Paranormal Experiences
People are especially open to O.O.B.E.’s (Out Of Body Experiences), astral travel, connecting with spiritual beings (i.e. “spirit guides,” “angels,” etc.), E.S.P., and other phenomenon in the delta brainwave range. Though most paranormal and psychic experiences can be argued to be real or fake, there is evidence that most people tend to have them when their brain is producing higher than average amounts of delta, and /or theta brainwaves. Though spiritual experiences and phenomena are commonly experienced in the theta brainwave state, the delta brainwave state has been associated with many too!

Boosted Immune System
Increasing your delta brainwaves can lead to a boosted immune system due to the fact that delta brainwaves are associated with age-reversal or slowing, the production of healthy hormones, and significantly decreased amounts of stress. Increasing your delta brainwaves can lead to a boosted immune system due to the fact that delta brainwaves are associated with healing and rejuvenation of the body. Stress and too much anxiety can do harm to the immune system by releasing harmful chemicals such as epinephrine (adrenaline) and too much of the hormone: cortisol, associated with the adrenaline release. The delta brainwave releases pleasant chemicals and neurotransmitters to help keep your immune system at arguably its highest rate of performance.

Drawback of too much delta

Emotional Baggage
If you’ve ever been told that you worry too much about the emotions of others or literally “feel what others are feeling,” chances are good that you have too much delta. While some people may enjoy increased empathy, others may feel like they are too caught up in other people’s emotional lives. The delta brainwave can definitely make you pack on too many extra emotions if you aren’t prepared.

Extremely Unfocused Mind
Not everyone may particularly enjoy an increased amount of delta brainwaves in their waking E.E.G. The delta brainwave range has been linked to extremely unfocused, unconscious thinking, and ADD. The delta brainwave range can increase mental fogginess, dreaming, and forgetfulness. If you are already extremely unfocused, increasing your delta brainwaves isn’t recommended.

Extreme Sleepiness
Since the delta brainwave pattern has been linked to the deepest stages of dreamless sleep, increasing this brainwave may make you feel more sleepy than you normally do. The delta brainwave is found in individuals that are sound asleep. Drowsiness and extreme sleepiness will occur if the delta brainwave is displayed while a person is awake. When increasing your delta brainwaves, it is extremely common to fall asleep as your brain is being trained. You will wake up feeling refreshed though. It is very difficult to stay aware in the delta state of consciousness unless you are advanced in the practice of meditation.

Hyperactivite
Because the brain is functioning at the slowest possible brainwave pattern, the central nervous system uses up virtually zero energy. All of the energy that you’ve accumulated throughout the day from eating food needs to be put to use somehow. Having too much delta brainwave activity allows your brain and CNS to get by with very little energy. Since the brain and CNS use less overall energy, the excess energy is expressed in some people through hyperactivity.

 

Theta brainwave are the second slowest frequency of brainwave with cycle rate of 4-7 times per second (4Hz–7Hz) and usually generated in the right brain hemisphere. Theta brainwave kick in when we feel emotional, deeply relaxed, daydream, unfocused, or are asleep. Theta brainwave are considered extremely relaxing brainwave activity that is commonly associated when brain activity slows almost to the point of sleep, but not quite. We normally only experience theta brainwave as we drift off to sleep, during some dreaming, and as we return from the depths of delta sleep.

theta brainwave

Theta brainwave can bring you deep states of meditation. A sensation of floating. and you may feel your mind expand beyond the boundaries of your body. In theta state, vivid imagery flashes before the mind's eye and we are receptive to information beyond our normal conscious awareness.

Theta brainwave has also been identified as the gateway to learning and memory. Theta meditation increases creativity, enhances learning, reduces stress and awakens intuition and other extrasensory perception skills. The inspiration that take place during the theta state is often free flow and occurs without censorship or guilt. The Theta state is where intuition comes, instantaneous healings occur and accelerated learning occurs. Einstein trained himself to spend many hours in that state. It is typically a very positive mental state.

Benefits

Deep levels of relaxation
The theta wave band has been linked to lower levels of anxiety, stress, and neurosis. Increasing the total amount of theta wave can help slow rapid thoughts and will make you feel more relax.

Ability to reprogram subconscious mind
The theta wave allows us to deeply connect with our subconscious mind. The subconscious mind, or our brain’s right-hemisphere becomes activated when slower brainwaves like alpha and theta waves kick in. You can change some of your deepest unconscious beliefs or emotional blockages by using affirmations or positive self talk. In the theta brainwave range, the brain is extremely open to suggestion and new ideas. It is the openness of the brain in the theta frequency range that constitutes the ability to reprogram the brain.

Hyperfocus and super learning
Hyperfocus is a unique phenomenon that can only be experienced in the theta wave range. Many people with high amounts of theta wave activity are able to stay intensely focused and motivated with one idea. The theta wave allows people to learn large amounts of information in a much quicker time than the beta brainwave state and may even be quicker than the alpha brainwave for some activities. You will be able to retain over 300% more information than in the beta brainwave state.

Enhanced long-term memory
As theta wave increase, the ability of the brain to recall and store long-term memories increases. The hippocampus, a part of the brain involved in memory processing and storing memories, has a normalized theta wave rhythm passing through this area. Often times, therapists try to slowly open up traumatized clients to the theta range in order to recall repressed memories and help talk them through the event.

Emotional connection
The theta brainwave range is associated with strong, powerful emotions. Often times beta brainwave can block our emotions and not allow us to fully experience our natural emotions. As theta brainwaves strengthened, we are able understand our emotions better and makes you feel emotionally connected with others.

Advanced intuition
Ever have a powerful gut instinct that helped you make a good decision? Or a gut instinct that you should’ve followed? As you increase your theta wave, your intuition will increase as well as your ability to recognize those feelings in your gut.

Bridges to the spiritual connection and psychic experience
People are especially open to psychic experiences like OOBE’s (Out Of Body Experiences), visions, ESP, and other phenomenon in the theta brainwave range. The theta wave also has been associated with a deep spiritual connection. The theta wave range provides enhanced spiritual awareness and profound insight. Many spiritual and psychic phenomena are experienced in the theta state.

Boosted immune system Healing of body and mind
The theta brainwave rhythm is well-known to rejuvenate, replenish, and heal the body and mind. The theta wave will reset your brains sodium and potassium ion ratio that thrown out of sync when you get yourself heavily involved in the beta range. Other than that, stress and too much anxiety will lead to the releasing of harmful chemicals such as epinephrine and cortisol, which can harm the immune systems. Increasing your theta brainwave can lead to a boosted immune system by releasing pleasant chemicals and neurotransmitters to help keep your immune system at it’s peak.

Drawbacks

Inability to focus
The theta brainwave range has been specifically linked to lack of focus and ADD. In most cases, theta brainwave are associated with mental fogginess, daydreaming activity, and random thinking.

Too many daydreams
Like the alpha brainwave, as you increase theta brainwave, you may have too many daydreams without any control over it. Too many daydreams is a prime example of why you may not want to entrain theta.

Depression
Usually, individuals that have too many lower brainwaves tend to feel more depressed. If you are depressed from being overstimulated, theta wave can help your condition improve, but if you are too understimulated, you better staying away from theta wave and sticking to beta.

Sleepiness
Sleepiness and drowsiness occur when theta wave are found in people that are fully awake. It is very tough to stay aware in the theta state of consciousness unless you are training through meditation.

Lack of excitement
Excitement is associated with beta brainwaves and the adrenaline that they produce. When you are in theta state, you may feel unexcited, or extreme feelings of boredom.

Extreme impulsiveness
Since a lack of conscious thought is associated with theta brainwaves, it is not uncommon for extremely impulsive people to be high in theta brainwaves. One symptom of ADD is being overly impulsive.

Hyperactive
Because the brain is functioning at such a slow brainwave pattern, the central nervous system is using up less overall energy. Having too much theta brainwave activity allows your brain to get by with less energy. Since the brain uses less overall energy, the excess energy is expressed in the individual through hyperactive behaviors.

Overly receptive mind
In the theta brainwave state, your brain may be overly receptive to suggestions and new information. Being overly receptive isn’t always a good thing and can make your subconscious more open to accepting negative suggested beliefs.

Alpha brainwave cycle within the frequency range of 8Hz to 12Hz and were the first brainwave frequency range to be discovered. It was found by an Austrian research psychiatrist in 1908 and named it Alpha Brainwave because it was the first brainwave to be discovered ("Alpha means "first" in Greek)

alpha brainwave

Alpha brainwave are the dominant brainwave activity when the body is relax and can turn on our creativity. When you take the time to breath deeply, meditate, or close your eyes, there will be a big increase in the amount of alpha brainwave activity inside your brain. You may experience this brainwave if you practice yoga or even drinking alcohol. They are commonly produced in synchronized fashion connecting both hemispheres of your brain but can be found solely in the right hemisphere.

Teen or child tend to have more alpha brainwave in their brain than the adult. Most people are lacking alpha brainwave due to the environment that promote stress, tension, nervous and anxiety. This make your brain shifted to a fast-paced state of mind consisting of beta brainwave.

Benefits

Emotion Stability and More Relax
Alpha wave will put you in a calm emotional state. Your body has zero stress or other feelings of being nervous. Increasing your alpha wave automatically leads to decreasing your fears, tension, stress, nerves, and anxiety. Alpha wave increased release of an important neurotransmitter called “Serotonin” which act as natural antidepressant.  Serotonin production usually drops to lower than normal levels in your brain when you feel depressed.

Enhanced Problem Solving and Creativity
The problem with lacking alpha wave is that your left-hemisphere is pulling all the weight in solving a problem, while your right-hemisphere has a solution waiting to communicate to the left.  Alpha wave integrate both hemispheres of your brain for better communication and clearer thinking.  Producing alpha wave will shut down the left brain and allows the right brain to expose new and creative idea. You certainly won’t feel mentally “stuck” in the alpha state.  Artists, singers and writers are generally found to have higher alpha activity than the average person.

Optimal Athletic Performance
The 10 Hz alpha brainwave frequency is commonly referred to as a peak performance state of mind. There has been conclusive evidence from studies with professional basketball players and golfers that show alpha wave increasing in their left brain hemisphere just before making a free-throw or shooting a great golf shot. In players that did not make the shot, beta brainwave flooded their left hemisphere. Professional athletes are much more likely to show the alpha rhythm, while novices and intermediate players show virtually none.

Ability to Tap Super Learning
You are able to remember and retain information easily. The ability to absorb large amount of information increase drastically and you do not require so much effort to learn new thing.  This is due to the fact that both hemispheres of your brain are integrated and communicating with each other very well.

Improved Immune System Functioning
Your alpha wave are responsible for pump up your immune system.  They have been linked to self-healing and prevention of illness.  Stress can harm the immune system because it release harmful chemicals such as epinephrine (adrenaline) which can lead to the production of cortisol hormone.

Calm Mind and Can Think Positive
Alpha wave can put you in a calm emotional state. You are able to deal with life’s problems easily and aren’t overanxious or too relaxed. You are somewhere in between overstimulation and understimulation. In essence, you’re mind is balanced and in an optimal state of functioning. Research has found that the alpha wave rhythm of 10hz frequency can access positive state of mind, positive mood and overall feeling of wellness.
