"Worry, Concern, Anxiety & Care Are All Mental Energy Wasters"
"Low Mental Energy Leads To Mental Fatigue"
"Poor Sleep Worsens Mental Fatigue!"
Our Point of View
The normal brain knows HOW TO WORRY. The worry is an expression of concern over the brain’s perception that there is a LACK OF CONTROL. When an individual brain is unable to manage concern over lack of control it gets EXCESSIVELY BUSY. This excessively busy brain state is what we call ANXIETY. We call the worry a “learned habit” that resulted from repeated threatening events or circumstances experienced during the early formative years of the brain’s development. When the habit of worry increases, the sleep process is negatively impacted. Poor sleep fuels continued anxiety as the brain seeks to resolve its concerns. Brains that are busy with anxiety waste mental energy and lead to mental fatigue, fatigue that worsens anxiety.
Our Lesson Plan
Tutor anxious 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 the brain learns to use mental energy wisely, it begins to sleep better and soon discovers more ability to remain calm and worry - free. Rested brains manage anxiety better than fatigued brains. Managing anxiety assists individuals in controlling the brain behavior that leads to cognitive impairment.
