  • Qui-Gong

Beta waves (15-40 Hz): This is the brain rhythm in the normal state of wakefulness, associated with thinking, conscious problems solving, and attention towards the outer world.

Alpha waves (9-14 Hz): When you are truly relaxed, is where meditation begins and it’s a brain wave frequency that heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning, and concentration. This is the gateway to the subconscious mind and reprogramming your thinking.

Theta waves (4-8 Hz): Theta brain waves are present during deep meditation and light sleep, including the important REM dream state. This is the domain of your subconscious and only experienced momentarily as you drift off to sleep from alpha or wake from deep sleep. We are more receptive to insights and information beyond our normal conscious awareness in this state. Some experts state that theta meditation amplifies intuition and other extrasensory perception skills.

Delta waves (1-3 Hz): The delta frequency is the slowest of the frequencies and is experienced in deep, dreamless sleep. It is also seen occasionally in very experienced meditators. The delta state is critical to the body’s healing processes. Most regeneration and healing happen in this brain-wave state, making getting enough deep sleep critical to our survival.

  • Chamomile or Kava kava or Valerian Tea
  • 5-HTP, GABA, and L-Tryptophan (Not natural herbal preparation like the previous)
  • Never mix with alcohol

Be Early to Rise

  • The Gradual Method: Push back the time to go to sleep by 15min every day until you meet the desired time
  • Put the alarm across the room

Body Work that Works

  • One massage per week
  • Contract muscles for 5-10secs and then relax
  • Look for self-massage tools

Dress Better

  • Men: Boxers, loose fitting pajama bottoms, basketball shorts, basic t-shirt if you want, or go naked
  • Avoid tight underwear or bras for women

Get Grounded:

  • Receive vitamin G by being Barefoot on the ground: soil, grass and sand (10min each days)
  • Earthing is about transferring free electrons to the body through exposed skin. Pair with unpair electrons in order to avoid free radicals
  • Getting grounded after a flight corrects circadian rhythm for jet lag
