"Mentally Fatigued Brains Can Lose Control Over The Fear Response"
"Good Sleep Energizes Brains, And Restores Control Over Stress"
Our Point of View
Crank up the intensity of fear and have the fear be based on perception as opposed to facts, and you fuel a phobia. Fear is a necessary mental function in that it provides a mechanism for judging safety issues. Mental energy is what gives the brain reasonable control over the sensation intensity of fear. Mental control is dependent upon having good mental energy reserves. Mental fatigue diminishes our brain’s ability to control irrational fear. The more mental fatigue we experience the more intense our fear response becomes. Brains dealing with the control of irrational fear can dramatically gobble up mental energy reserves, leaving the brain fatigued. Fatigued brains struggle to sleep well, and poor sleep worsens mental fatigue. A negative downward spiral of mental energy is triggered and reinforced.
Our Lesson Plan
Tutor irrationally fearful 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. Brains learn to use mental energy wisely, they now begin to sleep better and soon discover more ability to control irrational fear/phobias. Management of fear is now available to the efficient functioning brain and individual comfort and sense of well-being progresses to normal levels and beyond.
