Here's 15 ideas from my personal experience which will show you how to use binaural beats in awesome and inspiring ways to truly rock your day – and get the most out of your investment, naturally.
15 Ways To Use Binaural Beats
1. Before Bed
Use binaural beats to drift off into a deep, peaceful sleep. This is great for insomniacs and lazy folks alike.
You'll sleep like a baby after a session on the beats. Try and get some which take you to the Delta state of mind, which is as close to sleep as you can consciously get.
2. First Thing In The Morning
Start the day with a dose of an energy-raising MP3, and feel awesome for the whole day. Worth getting up a few minutes early for.
3. With A Book
Reading a novel at the moment? Another way how to use brainwave entrainment is to stick on some isochronic tones, and watch the book come to life before your very eyes.
Your imagination will go into overdrive – you're likely to get a bit carried away – and the fun factor multiplies. I've used this for everything from a Dan Brown thriller to Winnie The Pooh…
4. When Commuting
If you're on a train or bus, put your headphones on, shut your eyes, kick back and spend a blissful 30 minutes experiencing another universe, while the world around you rebels against their horrific commuting existence 😉
5. When Meditating
Do you like to meditate, but find it tricky to quieten your mind? Try again with some binaural beats, and feel / experience the massive difference. There's a reason I call binaural beats “the lazy person's way to inner peace” – they do most of the hard work for you 🙂
6. When Revising
How to use brainwave entrainment for revision? Well, there's loads of studies done that suggest brainwave entrainment tools improve visual retention and memory.
Got a test coming up? Something new you want to learn? You'd be mad to revise without your magic tones too 😉
7. At Lunch
If you have an employer liberal enough to let you spend 20 minutes at lunch eyes shut, kicking back at your desk with a massive grin on your face, put some isochronic tones onto your iPod, listen at lunch, and then wait for the *huge* increase in productivity in the afternoon.
8. Whilst Keeping Fit
I've found binaural beats to be useful for spicing up jogs, trips to the gym, warming up and stretching, and yoga type stuff (not that I've done too much of that).
If you're taking part in some relatively low level exercise, experiment with brain wave entrainment, and see if it doesn't make the good feelings even better than normal too.
9. When Doing Creative Work
Let's face it – most of us get bored, unproductive and waste time occasionally. No need to fear – if you can get away with headphones at work, simply plug in 30 minutes of uplifting binaural beats and I'm betting you'll be inspired with awesome ideas, get more done and feel more energised.
10. When Bored
This is a revolutionary way how to use brainwave entrainment: if you get bored, take thirty minutes to listen to some beats. Er, that's it 😉 Whether you want to chill out, meditate, visualize, brainstorm, think, create – or anything else.
11. When Visualising
Do you visualize what you want your future to be like? (Please say yes!) If so, watch how quickly your visualization practice can transform with the use of binaural beats. I'm talking more focus, more feelings, more vivid pictures and sensations – and better results.
12. In The Bath
Baths are insanely relaxing at the best of times.
Now, take an isochronic tone recording (no headphones required), some chilled out Zen music and prepare for the bath of your life. Boom 🙂
13. In A Coffee Shop
Coffee shops are fabulous places to spend a couple of hours reading, doodling, people watching and, er, drinking coffee. Throw a binaural beats recording into the mix, and you're increasing your fun by the power of 2 (at a minimum, I reckon). That's how to use brainwave entrainment.
14. After A Big Night
No BS here – binaural beats and isochronic tones are the best natural hangover cure I've come across. No matter how boozed (or worse) you were the night before, spend half an hour the next day recharging your brain and watch your hangover slip away.
15. When You Power Nap
It's a well known and utterly proven fact of life that all humans love to snooze. Fact!
The stress reduction powers of a nap are insane. The ability to (a) feel warm and awesome, (b) come up with cool ideas, and (c) experience great visions, are all a trade mark of the snooze.
Even Edison and Einstein were reported nappers. Now, throw in a binaural beats MP3 and imagine what it's like to have a snooze using brain wave entrainment too!
