Electrical currents running through the brain are called brain waves.
When you are in the flow state, you produce alpha brain waves.
Alpha brain wave benefits:
- better mood
- better relationships
- more stress resilience
- increased pain tolerance
1. Combine Gratitude and Forgiveness.
- Holding onto trauma causes stress.
- When you forgive, you let go of the trauma, thus increasing alpha waves.
- Write something that hurt you.
- How did it make you feel?
- Think about how it benefitted you.
- How did the incident shape you into the person you’ve become?
- Feel gratitude for the person, and forgive them. (Remember, you’re doing it for your health.)
2. Listen to Binaural Beats.
- Listening shifts your brain into an alpha state by using the vibration of the various frequencies.
- Check out the Bulletproof Blog.
- Search “binaural beats” for a Spotify list.
3. Use blue-light blocking glasses.
- I use TrueDark glasses.
- They block 99% of blue light.
- Electronics emit blue light which puts stress on your brain and hurts your sleep.
