"If it is Anger You’re After, Start With Mental Fatigue"
"Failed Expectations Produce Frustration"
"Good Sleep Combats Mental Fatigue"
Our Point of View
Recipe for Home Grown Anger:
Take one normal brain, expose it to enough mental demand (sensory load) so that it finds itself incapable of managing the demand. Next, wait for mental fatigue to set in. The fatigue will automatically appear once the sensory load remains persistent for a sufficient amount of time. Now watch for disturbances in the sleep process. As the sleep worsens you’ll start to notice a rise in agitation coupled with irritability. Impatience begins to destroy any expectations for improvement. Stay the course until frustration sets in and anger will follow directly. Frustration will continue to fuel anger until it gets habituated (automated). You now have a home grown anger that is predictable and reliable. You can count on it!
Our Lesson Plan
Tutor these tired and frustrated brains to learn to be efficient during the day and the brains will build up the mental energy reserves necessary to support good quality sleep performance. Neurofeedback is an assistive technology process that can teach these brains to function efficiently. As they begin to learn to use mental energy wisely, they begin to sleep better and soon discover more ability to stay calm, patient and in control. Pack your anger’s bags, it’s going on an extended vacation with a one way ticket!
