"Mental Energy Is Needed For Good Sleep"
"Good Sleep is Necessary To Wake Rested"
"Waking Refreshed Means Sleep Was Good!"
Our Point of View
Brains never sleep! It’s counter-intuitive, but when a person is asleep the brain is BUSY - engaged in a process called CONSOLIDATION. The consolidation activity is thought to be an integration of the day’s events into the brain’s existing base of knowledge and experience. When the sleep process is performed well, mental energy levels are re-established and the individual wakes rested and restored. In order to enter the sleep process and to have a successful sleep, the brain must have adequate mental energy to accomplish the work of CONSOLIDATION/INTEGRATION. If a brain is fatigued or nearing exhaustion, entering sleep is a significant challenge. This challenge is called insomnia. Sensory overload facilitates insomnia.
Our Lesson Plan
Tutor these 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 focused and perform more effectively and successfully. Sleep comes easily and produces restful and restorative results.
