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 intense widescreen attention. It restores and strengthens very basic brain systems—such as the brain’s dopamine-based learning and reward centers–those that combine your fundamental biology with the information from your surroundings, to create your experiences.
Without using less effective positive psychology exercises, you can train yourself (and your clients) to be happier and focus better in particular situations, and to enhance your general level of positivity, while decreasing your stress.
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, and studying requires sustained attention. The Happi Focus Trainer can train “normal” people to improve their Attention Span and both single-pointed and wide 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.
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. There is a little-known provision of the American Rescue Plan which sets aside $34 Billion to fund school’s efforts to help students catch up. Schools and students will need your special skills.
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, 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.
