Concentration and focus have always been difficult to maintain, especially when there are so many distractions that prevent us from accomplishing our assignment.
Certain people are gifted with focus and a high level of memory, but most of us statistically speaking can’t focus their attention on something for more than 20 minutes.
Since most of us have such similar problems I decided to address this issue and help you to boost your memory and increase your focus using Alpha waves.
In order for this method to successfully improve your memory and focus, you first need to know what it is and how can it help you.
They are neural oscillations in the frequency range of 7.5 – 12.5 Hertz. Alpha waves are one type of brain waves detected by ether by electroencephalography or magnetoencephalography and predominantly originate from the occipital lobe during wakeful relaxation with closed eyes.
In other words, alpha waves stimulate your brain on a certain frequency to improve the network coordination and communication between brain cells.
So far we have learned that they are electrical frequencies that connect our brain cells, but how can we use it to in order to improve our memory and focus?
There are lots of ways to stimulate the electrons in our brain, the most practical way is thru listening to custom-made alpha wave music.
Recent studies were conducted on several participants in order to determine the effects of such music on the human brain.
The results of the gathered experiment showed that the participants who were stimulated by alpha waves had a significant increase in brain capacity and focus after 1 just hours of receiving stimulated waves.
Alpha waves can also be used for meditation purposes in order to relax the mind and to relive your spirit from negative energies.
Types of waves
Delta waves (.5 to 3 Hz) are the slowest brain waves and mostly occur during the deepest state of dreamless sleep. Achieving such waves while you’re still awake can occur in the deepest state of Zen Meditation.
Beta waves (12-30 Hz) they are mostly appearing during our normal waking state of conscious and occur when our attention is directed towards task solving problems. They are fast waves that indicate that we are alerted, focused and engaged in problem-solving situations. People who experience Beta waves on a daily basis are most likely to have an anxiety disorder.
Gamma waves (25-100 Hz) they usually hover 40 Hz and are the fastest of the brain wave bandwidth. Gamma waves occur when there is a simultaneous processing of information on multiple brain areas. Not many people have the ability to produce gamma waves and they have been associated with a higher state of conscious.
Among the brain waves, the Alpha wave is considered to be the most useful in situations where focus and concentration are needed.
If you decide to try to use Alpha waves to boost your memory capacity and improve your focus level give us feedback on your experience.
