The method optimizes your brain function and can be used in the following ways:
Use it as background music
Play it in the middle of a stressful day
Practice the method to relax whenever necessary
Utilize it when practicing a sport
Similar to our scientifically tested method, Growing with Confidence, Relax and Concentrate offers the possibility to learn to relax, thereby increasing one’s sustained-attention capacity and concentration. This will improve performance in any task that is undertaken.
Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny
What’s this method all about?
Relax and Concentrate is a musical method based on sound and rhythm. There are 5 musical pieces that last 5-7 minutes each. The combination of sound and rhythm in each piece has been designed to work specific areas in the brain. Naturally, all of the pieces aid in relaxation and well being.
What exactly does relaxation benefit?
Relaxation reduces physical and psychological stress and strengthens the immune system. When one is relaxed, his/her attention, concentration, ability to learn, and performance are improved.
How do music and relaxation help?
Both form a perfect symbiosis. They’re stimuli that enrich sensorial, motor and cognitive processes, as well as foster creativity and one’s attitude toward healthy change.
Why do relaxation and music have such positive effects?
First of all, many diseases and disorders have an epigenetic origin, which means that they respond to our genes and our responses to environmental signals.
Secondly, given the permeability of the type of brainwaves that are produced in childhood, children unconsciously register and store huge quantities of information, behavior and beliefs. This, in turn, influences their health, nature and behavior throughout their lives.
Third, within this database, the environmental signals to which the individual is submitted are interpreted. This automatically activates specific mechanisms, without forming judgments.
Fourth, there are two kinds of survival mechanisms in humans: one that is used for protection and defense and the other that directs growth and regeneration. These mechanisms cannot operate simultaneously.
Fifth, there are strategies that people can use to train the mechanism of evolved growth. They help the individual to not automatically engage the protect and stress. Without a doubt, relaxation is an important tool to do so.
Sixth, the unconscious mind processes 20 million stimuli per second, while the conscious only processes 40. With the necessary training, it’s possible to reset and reorganize all of the information that isn’t of use or that impedes our development.
How do sounds or music affect us?
Music affects our brain, thought, spirit and mind. It enriches sensorial, motor, and cognitive processes; it fosters creativity and the willingness to change.
Sounds are vibrations with different frequencies that become electric signals that connect to our central nervous system.
Rhythm, tonality, melody and harmony refer to different areas of the brain; all of them connect to each other through complex neurological pathways.
Intense musical emotion connects to cerebral regions that participate in the process of reward and motivation, such as the ventral striatum, the amygdala, the midbrain and parts of the frontal cortex. The release of dopamine is also involved, as it is the neurotransmitter associated to the regulation of emotion, alertness and mood.
Did you know that the human brain operates using various wave frequencies that determine behavior, thought, emotions and the ability for learning? Which frequencies are involved?
Human beings pass through stages of growth and in each specific types of brainwaves are employed:
Delta: deep sleep. From 0 to 2 years old. (1 to 3 Hz)
Theta: deep sleep. Meditation. From 2 to 6 years old. (4 to 7 Hz)Alpha: state of relaxation. Light sleep. Meditation. These mostly appear during the adult years. (8 to 12 Hz)
Beta: awake. From 12 years old. (12 to 30 Hz)
Gamma: greater mental activity (25 to 100 Hz)
How does the Relaxation and Concentration Method work?
The sounds and music of the MRC method are tuned to alpha and theta frequencies, which are those that correspond to the levels of deep relaxation that are normally experienced in light sleep or during meditation. Changing the frequencies quickly alters mood, thoughts, the perception of the exterior, improving analytical ability and eliminating anxiety.
How can the method be used?
There are varied ways to use the method.
1) Listen to a track daily. Select the one that you most feel like listening to and listen at the time that you best see fit. This will create a routine that will accelerate the relaxation process. The method will then take from 5 to 7 minutes. The effect will be like having taken a nap.2) Tie its use to exercise. There’s proof of the method’s relaxing and stimulating effect when combined with the effects of exercise.
3) Use it to help get to sleep at night. Listen to all five tracks in a row and without interruption.4) Use it as a study method, like a power nap.
Suppose that you have to study something. Your study time must be divided into different sessions. Establish the duration of each session.
At the end of each session, listen to two of the MRC pieces (about 14 minutes) in a relaxed position, either seated or lying down. As the brain frequencies change during the session, the knowledge of what was studied will be more effectively integrated.
The University of Vienna conducted a study (Dittami, 2008) that demonstrated the effectiveness of power naps (a period of relaxation that’s no longer than 15 minutes) as a strategy to better integrate recently learned subjects.
