  • Long, hard, stressful day at work today, which is unusual for me, so looking forward to some inner balance and a good nights sleep. Wonder how the scores will be tonight and tomorrow morning.

  • Matt, try letting your breath become quieter, less throat constriction, quiet enough so that only you can hear it, and not someone across the room.  :)




    Thanks ill try that. Been working on level 4 for the last few days and trying to find my rhythm for maintaining the higher coherence. I think my lungs are wondering what's going on with all this deep breathing!
  • Gawd, I tried level 4 and got my ass handed to me.


  • Sometimes that just happens. This morning, I could hardly stay in the blue zone, better session this afternoon.


    What I'm liking about the inner balance is that immediate feedback you get. I've been noticing that when I spike higher into the green zone, there's a feeling that comes right before it spikes. The program has helped me recognize those feelings, that I might have missed otherwise, and learn to cultivate them more.
  • So not ready for Level 4:

  • you're definitely ready reggie... 80+% at coherence at level 4 is great!


     


    It seems to be, typically, a quick learning curve to convert moderate coherence to high (at level 4)

    That's good to hear. I'm generally able to do 80%+ medium / high coherence but usually 50-60% is medium. Persevering though.

  • my top ten scores are all from the past week, and all 6.5 or above, but still can't crack a 7

    You're getting closer to 7, who knows, you might just make a leap and hit 8.  However scores may progress, the practice itself has cumulative effects.  


  • slowly getting there, but still pretty short sessions

  • @MrSmith, nice coherence levels!  I think the longer sessions really help. I haven't explored that last screen with the pulse/spectrum graphs.  So, longer breaths score higher?  When I started the program, I moved the breath pacer up to 15, the 10 felt too short for me. 


     


    Kato, I've noticed that I'm a bit more positive, I'm more aware of the potential downward spiral of negative thought and find myself backing off from conversations that go there.  More significantly, my communication skills seem to have really increased. I have noticed too, the busier I am with work, the lower my coherence.  That would be nice to be able to reverse. 


     


    Ancient Phi, I'd like to try some of the neurofeedback that's out there one day, is there any particular training you'd recommend?

    Hey there Baba, I have only used the NeurOptimal system. I love it. Dave had the inventor/creator of NeurOptimal, Dr. Val Brown, on the podcast, #54. You may like the episode to find out more. It is really an amazing technology. Dave seems to prefer the NeurOptimal system more as well, and he goes into reasons for that in the podcast.


     


    NeurOptimal is a negative reinforcement system that is less "pushy" than the positive reinforcement models. Also other models attempt to bring your brain to an "average" brainwave state. These systems measure a ton of peoples' brainwaves to determine the average and then attempts to bring your brain more towards that average, but like Dave mentioned in the podcast who the sh*t wants to be average? Very un-Bulletproof. If you're an F student then becoming an average C student is great but if you are an A student then becoming an average C student is a bad choice.


     


    I'm no expert on the other systems, nor the Neuroptimal system for that matter, but that is what I got from the podcast and from doing my own research.

  • Wow you guys are doing great, it really drives me on. I'm now doing on average one 20 minute session a day on level 4, and averaging just under 6. Can sustain green for 3-4 minutes at a time now, but finding that when I drop down, it takes me a long time to get back to green. Definitely improving though and hoping to average a 6 over 20 minutes this week.


  • this is a pretty cool paper


     


    -gives a good overview of resonant hrv


    -outlines the main benefits found to date (improvements in: asthma, hyperventilation syndrome, hypertension, hypotension, anxiety, depression, fatigue, gastric pain)


    -figure 3: really good for visualising the realtionship between breathing, blood pressure, HRV at the 10 second cycle resonance


    -the idea of using the 10 second cycle for a single rep in weight training, sounds crazy enough to give it a go..

  • Still using my inner balance while recovering from surgery. Haven't notice too much changing in my sessions, although I've been stuck around the same level for a while now. Level 3 and averaging around 4.0-4.5 on 10mins minimum sessions. Lately been starting well and losing it around 5 mins in and then bordering just in the green for the next 5 mins. Not sure if a pattern is forming yet, but feels like it the last few days.
