The benefits of meditation are widely known! The trend towards using meditation as a way to not only combat the effects of stress on our brains and bodies, but also to change our behavior is quite profound! Part of the reason that meditation is so effective is that it helps people build their awareness - internal and external, and then apply mindfulness techniques.
First, let's look at a list of benefits of meditation:
Reduces Stress & Anxiety
Improves Sleep Quality
Emotional Stability & Resilience
Improved Focus & Attention
Improved & More Stable Mood
Addiction Management (note: we are all addicted to something, even if it's simply looking at our phones)
Strengthens Stress Response
Improves Cognitive Performance
Slows the aging process
Improves decision making
If you're anything like me, you're like - "Um, yes! Sign me up!" I want all of those things!
The problem is for me is this next part:
You have to meditate consistently for 10-20 minutes per day for months to start to see the benefits. Also, when you meditate, you really need to achieve the mental discipline to return to present and to your breath time and time again when your mind wanders. It requires conscious effort.
For me, I'm all about the most efficient and effective approach. Plus, honestly, I don't know if I'm disciplined enough to stick with that routine.
Neurofeedback provides all the benefits of meditation at an accelerated rate and with no conscious effort! Once you're hooked up to Neurise's NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback system, all you have to do is sit back and relax while it goes to work to rewire your brain in the same way meditation rewires your brain.
For me, I had terrible insomnia and mild anxiety. I resisted getting on medication because I didn't see the end game to that appraoch (when would I be able to get off the medication), and so I researched natural, alternative options. When I discovered neurofeedback, I didn't have high expectations, but I went into it with an open mind and was absolutely shocked with how effective it has been! Not only has it resolved my sleep and anxiety issues, I have so much more motivation, my internal dialogue is more positive and compassionate, I've craved healthier foods and even started weight training (which I NEVER would have thought I'd do!), my overall stress levels are much lower, my mood more stable, and overall I'm just much happier!
I'm so grateful for this neuro-technology that has truly changed my life! NeurOptimal's approach is natural and holistic (it balances the entire brain), which I love!
