7 Benefits of Sensory Deprivation

Scientists continue to find a growing list of benefits to using sensory deprivation float tanks as a means of enhancing one’s physical and mental health.

By freeing yourself of as many outside sensations as possible, sensory deprivation float tanks enable your mind and body to focus on achieving healthy states that are difficult to obtain in a normal environment.

This is similar to a sensory deprivation tank that I’ve floated in at Souler Float in Melbourne, Florida

So what are the benefits of sensory deprivation?

Here are just seven of the many benefits of sensory deprivation tanks:

 
Relaxation 

Freed of the stimuli that produce stress, an enhanced state of relaxation is the most commonly experienced benefit of sensory deprivation.

The world around us, even the most mundane sounds and sights, can produce chronic levels of stress that we are barely aware of. It is only in the ultra-peaceful environment of sensory deprivation that many experience for the first time what truly rejuvenating relaxation feels like. 

Deep Meditation

It is well known that meditating is a wonderful way to refresh and rejuvenate your mind. However, it can be difficult to reach the most advanced states of meditation, due to the constant stimuli we receive from the world around us.

Even in the most quiet and isolated room, there still exists natural distractions that hold us back from exploring the deepest meditative states. Through the use of a sensory deprivation tank, those distracting barriers can be removed. 

Soothing Chronic Muscle Pain

A lot of the muscle pain many of us experience and attribute to simple aging is actually a result of stress.

Everyday stress has a tendency to build up in our muscles and result in chronic muscle pain that appears to have no precise cause. Once you melt away all that stress in a sensory deprivation tank, you may find that pain that you once thought was just an unavoidable part of aging has wonderfully vanished. 

Increased Athletic Performance

Athletic ability has many origins, but primary among them is a mind at peace in a well rested body. The use of a sensory deprivation tank can put you in just the right mental and physical state to maximize your athletic ability.

With a clear mind and more relaxed body, your reflexes and ability to make judgements in a competitive environment will be enhanced. This will enable you to make the most of the practice and effort you put into performing well, whatever your sport of choice. 

Sense of Well Being

It almost goes without saying that if your body and mind are relaxed and stress-free, then your general sense of life will be improved. Rested and relaxed people are in the best position to get the most out of life. They have the focus to take advantage of opportunities when they arise. These benefits are bound to make you feel better about yourself and the world around you. 

Memory

A lot of what we call “forgetfulness” is actually just being too tense and distracted to focus clearly on the past. Once those stresses and distractions have been removed by sensory deprivation, only then you will finally be free to delve deeply into those topics from the past and recall them with full vividness. 

Fighting Alzheimer’s

While the causes of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are not fully understood, one thing that is known is that the onset of Alzheimer’s can be delayed, slowed or even prevented by enhanced mental activity.

That extra activity is exactly what occurs when our minds are freed by a sensory deprivation tank to go in directions not possible in everyday environments. For those who wish to minimize their risk of developing dementia, sensory deprivation experiences are a valuable tool of defense. 

These are just the seven major benefits of sensory deprivation which most everyone experiences. There are also more subtle and personal benefits which people have reported experiencing.

7 Must Eat Foods For The Brain

The foods that will supercharge your brain are called foods for your brain. Simply put, your brain likes to eat.

And it likes powerful fuel: quality fats, antioxidants, and small, steady amounts of the best carbs.

The following foods are called main foods for your brain:-

 1. Avocado

Start each day with a mix of high-quality protein and beneficial fats to build the foundation for an energized day. Avocado with scrambled eggs provides both, and the monounsaturated fat helps blood circulate better, which is essential for optimal brain function – and it’s possible the avocado’s plentiful antioxidants help combat diseases like diabetes .

2.     Blueberries

These delicious berries are one of the best foods for you, period, but they’re very good for your brain as well. Since they’re high in fiber and low on the glycemic index, they are safe for diabetics and they do not spike blood sugar. Blueberries are possibly the best brain food on earth: they have been linked to reduced risk for Alzheimer’s, shown to improve both memory and learning ability (and motor skills in rats), and they are one of the most powerful anti-stress foods you can eat. Avoid: dried, sweetened blueberries.

 3.     Wild Salmon

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for your brain. These beneficial fats are linked to improved cognition and alertness, reduced risk of degenerative mental disease (such as dementia), improved memory, improved mood, and reduced depression, anxiety, hyperactivity and cardiovascular disfunction.

4.     Nuts

Nuts contain protein, high amounts of fiber, and they are rich in beneficial fats. For getting an immediate energy boost that won’t turn into a spike later, you can’t do better than nuts. The complex carbs will perk you up while the fat and protein will sustain you. Nuts also contain plenty of vitamin E, which is essential to cognitive function.

5.     Seeds

Seeds contain a lot of protein, beneficial fat, and vitamin E, as well as stress-fighting antioxidants and important brain-boosting minerals like magnesium. Sesame seeds in particular are a real Swiss Army Knife of health benefits.

6. Coffee

Coffee is good for your brain. Did you know coffee actually contains fiber? That’s going to help your cardiovascular system. Coffee also exerts some noted benefit to your brain in addition to providing you with a detectable energy boost (note: it’s not as simple as boosting your brain-power, but it can make you work more effectively, depending on the work you’re doing). There is also evidence that it may provide an electrical jolt to backwater parts of your brain as well as potentially strengthening synapses associated with learning and special memory.

7.     Oatmeal

Nature’s scrub brush is one of the best foods for cardiovascular health, which translates to brain health.

8.     Beans

One more for carb-lovers. (The brain uses about 20% of your carbohydrate intake and it likes a consistent supply). Beans are truly an amazing food that is sadly overlooked. They’re humble, but very smart. Not only are they loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals and protein, they’re ridiculously cheap. An entire bag of beans usually costs only a few dollars and will provide many meals. Beans provide a steady, slow release of glucose to your brain – which means energy all day without the sugar crash.

7.     Brown Rice

Brown rice is a low-glycemic complex carbohydrate that is excellent for people sensitive to gluten who still want to maintain cardiovascular health. The better your circulation, the sharper your brain – and as part of a campaign to get the Philippines to switch from white to brown rice, it’s been claimed that brown rice can boost your memory.

In spite of above mentioned  tea,chocolate,oysters,olive oil and tuna are called important foods for your brain also.

If you want to learn more about the benefits of foods for your brain, check out the book Train Your Brain: Your Food Matters on Amazon.

How to Unlock More of Your Brain Power

Brain Power is something that we are constantly trying to improve.

It seems like a lot of the products that are being released are out there to help you think faster, improve your memory, comprehend information better and to truly unleash your brain’s full potential.

Do stupid things faster with more energy

Even signs like this are being sold on Amazon. (I laugh every time I see this)

More and more information is becoming available on how to unlock more of your brain power so I thought it would be a good idea to create a resource to help you improve your brain power.

Below is a list of things you can do to unlock more brain power:

  • Cultivate ambidexterity. You always brush your teeth and eat your food with the same hand. Take notice of this and switch it up.  You can also start juggling today which helps ambidexterity.
  • 5 Why’s. When stuck on projects, ask yourself 5 “Why’s”. This will help you to get more detailed on your answers and brings more of your childhood curiosity back into your life.
  • Think positive thoughts. You’re already thinking all day anyway, why not think positive thoughts?
  • Eat Brain Foods. You can learn about brain foods here and why you should start to incorporate them into your diet.
  • Listen to music. Music has a profound impact on your life and if you listen to the Baroque style of music and do work, your productivity will soar through the roof. Baroque music pulses between 50 to 80 beats per minute. Baroque music “stabilizes mental, physical and emotional rhythms,” according to Chris Boyd Brewer, “to attain a state of deep concentration and focus in which large amounts of content information can be processed and learned.”
  • Train Your Brain. When you take the time to train your brain, everything becomes possible.
  • Learn a foreign language. Learning a foreign language is one of the best things you can do to unlock more of your brain power. It will also make you more intelligent and a better communicator.
  • Start a blog. Learning to write has had a profound impact on the way I view the world. I never used to enjoy writing and now use it as a tool for personal growth and to share what I learn. You can learn to start a blog in 24 hours here.
  • Learn to speed read
  • Commit to lifelong learning. Never stop learning. If you can, try to learn something new every day.
  • Admit your problems out loud. I wrote a blog post all about my weaknesses to not only admit them to myself, but to free myself from these limiting beliefs I had about my weaknesses.
This is just a starting point to unlock more of your brain power. The more activities like these that you do, the more of your brain power you will be unlocking. 

Do you have any experiences that helped you unlock more of your brain power?
