Training Your Brain the Easy Way – How to Increase your Active Memory without Effort
Training your brain is a hot concept currently with Todd Sampson on the ABC demonstrating the power of brain training exercises and all the buzz about brain plasticity. It’s certainly heartening to know that the brain can change and be re-built at any age and we can improve instead of just degenerating. Just 25 years ago this was a controversial concept, says Norman Doidge, author of The Brain That Changes Itself.
But let’s face it, how many of us are really going to do what it takes to change?
Are we going to spend more than a couple of days or weeks practicing those exercises?
Are we going to take up a musical instrument or learn chess?
Changing your brain is great, but you have to really work at it.
Or do you? I believe in making things easy – just because it works for me. That’s why I’ve been using and recommending Sound Therapy for the past 25 years – and I’m listening to it right now! The reason it works so well for me is it’s a passive process, so I can carry on with my day while I’m listening to it unconsciously.
Yes, I am aware of it if I tune into it – played at very low volume – but it doesn’t stop me from writing an article, having a conversation, talking on the phone, watching videos, walking or gardening. It does say in the book that you can listen during any activity except tennis or sex!
Is it really effortless? Yes it is. You just put in your earphones, press play, and away you go with your portable Sound Therapy player. That’s why I have kept using this method for 25 plus years while so many other self-improvement techniques went by the wayside.
But am I claiming this will really do what the brain-training games do? No, not completely. But the results our listeners report are surprisingly similar in a lot of ways. These include better memory, better word recall, better focus and concentration, less anxiety, better sleep, a reduction in stress, anxiety, seizures and panic attacks.
And the big difference is that people use the method for years and years because it’s so pleasant and easy, whereas the active brain training, most people will only dabble in. And of course Sound Therapy is a brilliant back up to any active brain improvement techniques, so why not do both?
