The Brain in itself is the powerhouse or the boss of the human body. It controls everything Our body, our life – Birth till the end. Education, careers, communication, relations, happiness, success etc.
We all know that we are living in a current life situation which is full of stress and anxiety which leads to
1. Poor communication & Relationship Issues
2. Health and Temper Issues
3. Peace and Happiness is ruined.
It is also a well know fact that controlling the outer world is not possible but controlling our own brain and mind is possible.
The best way to control our brain and mind is to control the brain waves since our actions and hence the state of the mind is measured by the condition of our brain which is measured in the form of waves. The main type of brain states that we are aware about is :
Beta State of Mind is the state in which there is higher frequency of brain waves and indicates stress and Anxiety. We are always in the Beta state of mind state during the time that we are awake.
Alpha State of Mind is the lower frequency of brain wave which is the Pre Sleep / Pre Awakening & Meditation state of the mind. This is the state of mind where we are relaxed and we have better brain wave control.
Theta State of Mind is the state of mind which is called REM or the Dreaming Sleep state of mind which is very vital for the Long Term Memory and is also the state of Deep Meditation.
It has been observed that if we want to lead a stressful life and also enjoy the many benefits like better health, better learning, Success and able to deal with problems better and hence a better EQ (Emotional Quotient) it is very necessary to develop more of Alpha and Theta waves in our brain.
To be able to do that in a natural way you can practise some brain exercises & Meditation for adults and for children you can and also help them by enrolling them for Sensory Enhancement Course which will give them the same benefits of Meditation.
For Adults performing meditation and Brain Exercises would be possible since we would understand the value of performing this activity and we would also be able to convince ourselves to do the same. Hence it is only a matter of Patience a good guide and perseverance which will help an adult to gain somewhat control on their brain waves.
For children nurturing the brain is a complex problem since Children would not be able to do the traditional form of Meditation what we need to do is give them the benefits of Meditation in a playful and joyful atmosphere so that they can do it repeatedly and also enjoy the process. What we can do is have the children attend a Sensory Enhancement Program which deals with exactly the same process of decreasing the levels of Beta Waves and increase of Alpha and Theta waves.
One of the Pioneers in this field is BRAINY – A division of Brain Child Learning which helps in Brain Training for Children in the age group of 7 to 16 year olds. They have a methodology of Training which Involves Meditation / Digitised Music – to open new neural pathways in the brain and Neurobic Exercises which help the mind stay agile and alert. The Blended training provides all round development of the brain with multiple benefits. One of the components is the Sensory Enhancement & Memory Training Course which focuses on improving the Concentration/ Focus of the child.
To know more you can refer to www.brainy.co.in for more information on their training methodology or Google the term “Sensory Enhancement Course” or “Sensory Enhancement Program” to get a list of training available for helping them develop their Concentration/Focus span in both the Traditional and alternate method. They have a healthy combination of both.
