When we first begin our career, work might be a new and exciting prospect, but what happens as life slowly sets in? We start having difficulties with certain areas of work. Neurofeedback improves work performance in a noticeable way! Trying to get that promotion? Trying to perform better to simply keep up with the pace of work? Here are 7 ways neurofeedback improves work performance.
1. Better attention during meetings – Do you feel as though you have a hard time staying attentive during meetings? Afterwards, do you have difficulty remembering details about what was said? Neurofeedback improves overall attention, so you will be able to be more present during meetings, even the boring ones. Also, you will be able to recall that information better, as neurofeedback improves memory as well.
2. Better focus on work projects –Do you find yourself staring off into space or daydreaming at work when you should be focusing on your task at hand? Better ability to focus is a key improvement after neurofeedback sessions that is sure to make a noticeable impact on your productivity. Additionally, the quality of the work sees improvement as you can truly focus on what you are doing.
3. Better ability to meet deadlines – Do you feel like it takes you a long time to complete work projects that should go a lot faster? Do you struggle mapping out a timeline for projects? Neurofeedback improves executive functions, all of the processes in the brain associated with doing a task, including project planning. This makes it much easier to complete projects in a timely manner.
4. Better sleep quality and quantity – Did you know that not getting enough sleep and not getting enough quality sleep is proven to negatively impact performance? So what happens if you have trouble falling or staying asleep at night? Neurofeedback improves the ability to fall asleep, stay asleep, and maintain good quality sleep. If you are able to get the sleep you truly need, you will perform better in the workplace.
5. Better emotional control – Getting emotionally invested in your job is not necessarily a bad thing. However, you may have trouble controlling your anger, anxiety, or other emotions that interfere with your ability to work well, both independently and as a successful team member. Neurofeedback gives you better control over your emotions, keeping you calm in situations when you may need a little extra help.
6. Decreased stress levels – Everyone knows the feeling of being crushed under the weight of your stress, but we often get desensitized to our own stress, and we don’t realize how bad it really is and how it is affecting our life. Neurofeedback works to calm the brain so stress does not impact us the way it normally would, and we can emotionally handle the work and pressures that we need to.
7. Better mood overall – It seems pretty obvious, but the better mood you are in, the better your performance will be. As simple as it may be, we tend to forget this detail, and inevitably, we have days where we are not in a good mood or we may be feeling depressed. Neurofeedback improves brain function to allow the brain to function calmly, which allows you to be in a better mood at any given time. Additionally, if you do suffer from depression or another mood disorder, neurofeedback can help to reduce these unwanted symptoms and help you perform much better while also feeling better.
