The brain needs to be conditioned, active and exercised. It also needs relaxation and cool down periods. The article describes a 30-minute exercise Neurocore performs where the person sits in a comfortable chair and watches a favorites movie of theirs with electrodes attached to the head to monitor brain waves. The person must pay attention to the movie. When the mind takes its attention off the movie and starts thinking about something else, the movie will pause. When the brain refocuses back onto the movie, the movie will play again. Because the brain is focusing solely on a movie it is enjoying and is sitting in the comfortable chair, the brain is free from thinking about anything else, so it relaxes. If the brain relaxes, the muscles relax, and the rest of the body follows suit. The article explains the exercise as rewarding the brain by letting it indulge in an enjoyable movie. However, the reward is taken away when the brain’s attention leaves the movie. The article makes the point of showing how the relationship between brain and muscle conditioning, pointing out that the muscles can be conditioned to improve performance, like the brain. These are exercises. See more information at Linkedin about Neurocore.
