Some alpha brainwave goodness combined with uplifting music to give you a cheerful start to the day, or whenever you need a little pick-me-up! This mood booster starts off at a relatively slow Alpha tempo (8 cycles per second), but the pace slowly speeds up and settles at 12hz by the end of the track.
Up until now we have focused on beta brainwave stimulation to combat the ‘slow wave’ activity of those suffering from a mood disorder. This audio still aims to speed up brainwave activity, but is a little more easy going.
While Beta aims to transcend emotions and encourage a more rational mindset, Alpha can be said to provide balance between the two, transmuting negative emotions into a more stable form and encouraging the release of ‘feel-good’ hormones such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphins. In this state, we can cope better with feelings of stress and anxiety, and make important decisions when under pressure.
Other healthy and effective ways of promoting alpha waves are through meditation, yoga, saunas, exercise, massage, alcohol and drugs (just kidding!), spa-therapy…
How do I listen to this track?
This audio uses isochronic tones in addition to binaural beats so technically you don’t require headphones. However they are recommended to provide an optimal entrainment experience.
How long do I listen?
Brainwave entrainment typically takes around 6-8 minutes to kick in, but to really notice its effects, it’s recommended that you listen through to the end at a low, comfortable volume in order to experience the full range of alpha frequencies.
