Advanced Mental Training to Maximise your Success

Mental Training in Florida

Florida brain trainingWill 2014 be your best year ever?

Would you like to boost your mental performance?

You can improve your memory or develop strong focus in your sport.

Is it time for a mental tune up?

At this time of year many people just focus on the remaining weeks of the year and then Christmas.  Typically there is not much forward planning or goal setting happening for 2014 at the moment.  But if you want next year to be your most successful year, you need to start planning now!

Wouldn’t it be great to work on improving your mental performance whilst enjoying the sunshine?  In England at the moment the days seem short and the temperature has really dropped.  So at this time of year I like to head to Florida.

Mental fitness courses will be available during December and again in January.  There will be a limited few places in coaching programmes and regular training courses will be available. (training vs coaching)

This is a perfect time for new students to begin their mental training or past students to brush up on their mental skills and move onto an advanced level of training.

Executive Training

brainAre you a busy executive and feel you could achieve so much more with improved mental skills?  Would you like a better memory, with key facts easily recalled?  Or what if you could read three times faster while retaining more information?  And sometimes we just need to learn how to control our stress levels.

You will learn how to control your brainwave activity for peak mental performance.  You will be provided with your own brainwave technology to continue your brain training at home after the training.  Maybe we’ll see you at the World Memory Championships next year..,!

The popular “Mind Maximiser” training for executives will be available as a “Training only” course.

Private training is available from $2,000

If you want to maximise your intellectual and physical efficiency then Henry Hopking is your man. Henry knows more about liberating mental excellence in individuals
then anyone else I know.

 Sports Training

GlennTo compete at the highest level in your sport you need a solid mental game. You would like to develop better levels of focus and concentration?  Can you reduce stress and control your mental states on demand?  Would you like a mental programme which is designed just for you?

You can attend either a one or two day private training course based on the successful Get The Mental Edge programme.

Private training is available from $1,000

“Henry Hopking gave me all the skills I needed to control my concentration helping me to win this Gold Medal.”

Poor quality teaching limits reading skills

A recent study published in the April 23rd edition of Science shows how poor quality teaching will limit the reading potential of children.  This reinforces the importance of children having high quality teachers.

Teachers have an effect on student reading achievement,” said psychology Associate Professor Jeanette Taylor, the study’s lead author. “Better teachers provide an environment that allows children to reach their potential.

The classroom environment will also

“Brain Training” games don’t work

At last there is the evidence that brain training games don’t boost brain power. (BBC report)

When doing radio interviews, the most common question I am asked is how good are these electronic games recently promoted to improve brain function.  My reply is always the same…doing lots of sudoku puzzles simply makes you good at doing sudoku.  There is no wider neurological benefit which can be applied to other tasks.

If you want to train your brain, you need to

Theta brainwaves essential for memory

From Reuters:

Scientists find how relaxed minds remember better.

Stronger and more lasting memories are likely to be formed when a person is relaxed and the memory-related neurons in the brain fire in sync with certain brain waves, scientists said on Wednesday….

…Synchronization in the brain is influenced by “theta waves” which are associated with relaxation, daydreaming and drowsiness, but also with learning and memory formation, the scientists explained in the study in the journal Nature.”

Accessing the theta brainwave is an integral part of the memory training I provide.  Memory techniques on their own are not enough. During both the memorisation and recall process, you need to increase theta brainwave activity and get both hemispheres balanced.

This research reinforces that The Brain Training Company is teaching cutting edge techniques.

You can only develop a really powerful memory with integrated brainwave training.  See the popular Mind Maximiser training course for more information on this subject.  Here you learn the techniques of memory and how to control your brainwave activity.

Have you tried a memory  training system or attended a course?  Did you learn how to access the theta state on demand and have this shown to you on an EEG system?

On a separate yet related matter, did you know that you need to be able to access a high-alpha state for speed reading?  So for effective learning skills, it is critical to be able to shift between the high-alpha and theta brainwave states (as well as other elements taught in the training course).

Brain Training – saves money and you live longer…

The value of brain training is becoming increasingly black and white – you save money and live longer.  This month I have written two separate comments on recent research backing up the value of quality brain training.  However here I want to promote that the two are intrinsicly linked. Brain training in a corporate environment can save companies billions of dollars / pounds each year.  High quality brain training courses for an individual can mean you have more chance of living longer…

Facts:

  • Stress related illness cost the UK £28 billion each year
  • This is a 1/4 of the UK’s sick bill
  • More than 13 million working days a year are lost in the UK because of work related stress
  • Stress is thought to contribute to coronary heart disease (CHD)
  • More than $475 billion is spent annually in the USA treating CHD
  • Meditation, or relaxing the brain, can reduce number of heart attacks and stroke by 47%

Brainwave training is a simple and cost effective way assist with these issues.

Speed Reading for Radovan Karadzic

Someone needs to learn some serious speed reading techniques.  Let’s have a tongue in cheek look at what could be achieved…

From BBC News:

“Ex-Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic has insisted he needs more time to prepare his defence, during his first appearance at his war crimes trial.

He told a procedural hearing in The Hague he could not join the proceedings until he had gone through more than 1.3m pages of court documents.”

Let’s work though a few calculations here of what he is requesting…

1,300,000 pages to read
@ 500 words per page (wpp)
= 650,000,000 words to be read

If, like most untrained readers, these documents are read at 250 words per minute (wpm) it will take:
