Advanced Mental Training to Maximise your Success

Study skills and brainwaves

Today I found an interesting video on the BBC news website. It is a news item looking at a new teaching style – a brain friendly style.

This incorporates short bursts of learning followed by some physical activity. It also discusses the importance of understanding of brainwave activity.

All of this is exciting as it is exactly what I have been teaching to my clients looking to improve their study skills. Periods of learning should be split into smaller blocks. School classes typically last for 40 – 50 minutes. However younger students cannot concentrate for this length of time.

By adding a period of physical activity, this increases blood flow and oxygen to the brain; essential for laying down the information into neural pathways.

Whilst the study of brainwave activity is mentioned, there is no specific mention of the different levels essential to learning.

Have a look at the news report here. It is great to see this subject, which was previously seen as being very “alternative”, becoming much more accepted and mainstream.

Tips to improve your brain

Ok I know, as some of you have emailed to point out, it has been way too long since the last post. So here’s another fresh start and some fresh news.

The subject of brain training seems to be so hot at the moment. It is everywhere in the news. The momentum is really building with people being increasingly aware that it is possible to train their brains.

One of the most common questions I am asked in radio interviews is, “how beneficial are these new electronic brain-training games?”

In my opinion, whilst a quick game of Sudoku or some mental arithmetic is no bad thing, it is more important for people to learn techniques of how to use their brain.

For instance, rather than practicing memory games without any training, it is far better to learn how to memorise information. There are specific memory techniques which can be learnt and 10 minutes of studying these is far better than 10 minutes of struggling with your old ways. Why re-invent the wheel?

The next most popular question I am asked is, “what tips can you give us to improve our memory / concentration / study skills?”

You may know that I provide private training courses to improve an individual’s mental performance. These are for the person seriously dedicated to maximising their personal performance; typically the Olympic athlete or top executive.

However, many people are looking for some simple, quick to learn techniques to improve their brain power.

So with this in mind, I am really excited and pleased to tell you about some new information I have released:

This information has been developed by condensing down all of the most powerful tips I give in my private training sessions. You can soon have access to the techniques needed to improve your brain power.

So, yes, hopefully more blogs will follow. There is so much news each and every day about the brain. It is an exciting time. Until the next time, bye for now.
