Ask anyone today what they have a hard time with and more often than not they are likely to cite trouble focusing or concentrating. With laptops, smart phones, television, GPS systems and social media, it is hard to block out all the distractions when you need to focus on something specific. Attention deficit disorder may be one of the most popular excuses for our lack of concentration, but it's not an entirely accurate diagnosis since many of us simply aren't training our brains the right way to improve our focus.
Concentration is necessary just to make it through a typical workday. From driving and working to shopping and cooking, focus is essential in order to get tasks accomplished. Unfortunately many of us have a hard time zoning in on a specific project and seeing it through to completion. Being easily distracted is not necessarily a disorder but it will keep you from managing your time wisely and getting done the important things that need your attention.
There are several ways people can improve their concentration, including strategic brain games and exercises, along with guided meditation and brainwave entrainment. Research has shown that the more a person trains their brain in specific skill sets, the better one can get at cognitive thinking, problem solving and memorization.
Using computer generated pulses, or isochronic tones, during brain entrainment meditation is another way to synchronize your brain's frequencies so you can operate on a fast or slow frequency that will assist in achieving states of productivity or relaxation. As we all know, when we are relaxed our concentration and decision making are much better than if we are under stress or hurried. Being able to tap in to specific Alpha, Theta and Delta waves allows us to synchronize our brainwaves with sound pulses so we can be more focused on specific projects and tasks.
It's not likely that the world is going to slow down anytime soon. Technology is moving at a breakneck speed that can't be turned off, and if we are going to adapt to this fast-paced lifestyle it's up to each of us to learn how to improve concentration, induce states of relaxation to reduce stress and train our brains to handle the constant bombardment of information. Using isochronic tones during brainwave meditation can help you achieve better focus, deeper calm and improved decision making.
