You can accomplish this by learning to control the emotional centers in your brain and become happier, day after day, by using the Happi Focus Trainer. Our published study showed that just 12 sessions of this training produced a significant increase in happiness that lasted at least four months. It will also teach you to improve your attention and memory, including three different types of attention: single-pointed Focus, Attention Span, and widescreen attention. These could not be directly trained before our innovations. Our uniquely powerful brainwave biofeedback (neurofeedback) restores and strengthens very basic brain systems—such as the brain’s dopamine-based learning and reward centers.
Without using (less effective) positive psychology exercises, you can train yourself, your family (and your clients) to be happier and focus better and to enhance your general level of positivity, while decreasing your stress.
We are experiencing a happiness deficit right now due to COVID. It is causing people to take unnecessary risks in crowded places to find the external causes of happiness they miss. We need to learn to find our happiness inside ourselves by controlling our brains’ systems better.
We know that being happy now can make you healthier in the future. Over 157 studies have shown this conclusively. Stressful thoughts can harm your health. Increasing your happiness safely now can produce better overall health and resistance to illnesses, particularly viral ones. Even if you get sick, its better to be happy. Happiness also enhances your chances for success. You can convert your excess arousal and anxiety–from the stressful present–to the excited happiness you experienced as an athlete, musician, dancer or fan.
COVID has done a lot of harm to our study habits by being out of school, since studying requires sustained attention. The Happi Focus Trainer can train “normal” people to improve their Attention Span and both single-pointed and widescreen focus. Published articles show that this extends to those with ADHD. Those with “brain fog” from COVID and other causes may also benefit, but research needs to be done.
The dozen Lessons are arranged in a logical learning sequence and explained step-by-step in the Manual and coordinated Training Videos. You can train yourself or others to feel and function so much better.
Professionals of many types–teachers, tutors, coaches, school psychologists, naturopaths, wellness practitioners, and neuropsychologists, to name a few–have an opportunity to help others by extending their skill set and creating courses based on our neurofeedback training systems. There is a little-known provision of the American Rescue Plan which sets aside $34 Billion to fund schools’ efforts to help students catch up. Schools and students will need your special skills.
How Can You Train Your Fundamental Brain Functions?
You typically begin to understand and control these feedback displays within a few minutes. The Happi Focus Trainer can also control the size, brightness, and volume of a DVD or video of your choice, dimming and then stopping them when you aren’t doing well. People enjoy the positive feelings from the training experience, and the improvements from this brainwave biofeedback training (neurofeedback) continue and add up with further sessions. Published research showed that twelve sessions of training results in increased overall happiness levels for at least four months. Neurofeedback can be used at any age and helps a wide variety of conditions in addition to your happiness level.
After mastering the technique, you can combine it with slightly deeper breathing and reach a state of blissful happiness without neurofeedback in a few breaths, by recalling the change in your state that increases our very unique Neureka! neurofeedback. We call this practice “Happitation”. You can choose calm or more excited Happitation. Both decrease stress. They are very useful, particularly in these times when our normal sources of both calm and excited happiness have been curtailed. You can learn to sustain them during training and after it. It will help you to overcome your happiness deficit, which has lowered the average level of happiness. Teaching yourself or clients that a source of happiness can be reached within themselves is extremely important as an alternative to addiction to outside sources of happiness and the underlying “reward deficiency syndrome”. By simultaneously focusing, you can create Focused Happitation, an ideal state for work and study.
Peak Achievement Training has been selling systems since 1998. Our more complete professional product, the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer, which includes training for increasing Alertness or staying calm, is still available, along with the Socialize Ace (for autistic issues) and the Mood Elevator. These are educational instruments that do not require any particular license or certification. They include extensive training videos and manuals.
Both Dr. Cowan, the CEO, and Dr. Sokhadze, our independent research collaborator, have written invited biographical chapters, along with the other top pioneers in neurofeedback, in the recent Elsevier book, Neurofeedback: The First Fifty Years. Check out the Trainer’s many endorsements (Success Stories) on a very long webpage.
