Your Guide To Different Types Of Brainwaves
There are four different types of brainwaves activity with different types of mental state induce:
Beta Waves (13-40 hz)
ATTENTIVE, CONSCIOUS, NARROW FOCUS, COGNITION
What is Beta Brain Waves?
Beta Brain Waves are often associated with being involved in critical thinking – alertness, focus, energy, concentration. Beta Brain Waves will most likely be developed in people who are alert and focused. Beta Waves are most helpful when we are working or studying; where critical thinking is needed. However, too much Beta will cause stress and anxiety attack.
A low Beta Brainwave frequency (12hz – 15Hz) will secure your focus level and increase mental abilities, cognition and IQ. To achieve this mental state, use iNeuro Brain and Mind Power Series in order to gain these benefits.
A mid Beta brainwave frequency (15Hz-20Hz) is needed in order for one to achieve super focused and sharp mind mind, full attention, and hyper alert. This specific Beta state is best for dealing with intense information and making the brain to want seek better understanding on something.
An excessively high Beta brainwaves (18Hz – 40Hz), on the other hand, will lead to anxiety, significant stress, paranoia, high arousal and panic attack.
Alpha waves (7-13Hz)
VISUALIZATION, RELAXATION, INGENUITY
What is Alpha waves?
Alpha waves are usually present whenever we are in deep relaxation mode – usually when our eyes are closed; into a dreamy and light meditation state. It is an excellent time to expand your awareness and accelerate learning speed. This stage is when new ideas appear and solutions to your problems may struck your mind. Your fears will fade away; as you will experience a sense of peace.
However, too much of Alpha waves may results to daydreaming, inability to focus and may tend to be too relaxed. On the contrary, too little of Alpha waves may lead to anxiety, high stress, insomnia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Theta Waves (4 – 7Hz)
INTUITION, DEEP THOUGHT
What is Theta Wave?
Theta waves occur when the brain activities slows down and fall into the point of sleep. As you submerge into a deeper relaxation state, Theta can bring you to the meditation state. Theta is beneficial as it aids to improve our intuition, creativity, and makes us feel more natural.
Although Theta waves may beneficial, there are setbacks if there was an excessive Theta waves. Excessive Theta may lead to depression, hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattentiveness. Minimal Theta, however, may cause poor emotional awareness and stress.
Overall, unless excessive Theta is produced during our waking hours, it is a very helpful brain wave range.
Delta Waves ( 0 – 4Hz)
DETACHED AWARENESS, SLEEPING
What is Delta Brain Waves?
Delta waves are the slowest brain wave frequencies. Delta waves are usually associated with the deepest levels of relaxation and restorative, healing sleep. Delta brain waves are long, deep and wavy, and are most often associated with deep dreamless sleep. Deep Delta state of brain wave activity is one of balanced relaxation, where both sides of the brain work in synchronization. If there is unusual delta activity, on may experience learning disabilities or may face difficulties to uphold conscious awareness.
Undeniably, Delta waves is a great asset for relaxation and sleep. However, too much of Delta waves may cause learning problems, inability to think, and brain injuries. On the other side, too little Delta may result to inability to rejuvenate body and to refresh the brain, and also poor sleep.
The human brain typically operates in all of the above brainwave frequencies. However, dominant brainwave frequency is inevitable. It is this dominant and abundant brainwave frequency that determines our state of mind.
