Binaural beats are a sound wave therapy that uses this capability of our brain to relieve us from our stressed lifestyle quickly and naturally so that you don’t need to approach a psychologist.
You might think how?
Two sounds of a slightly different frequency are sent to each ear, for which our brain produces a third sound to compensate the difference between the original two. In this way, binaural beats stimulate rapid and effective communication between both sides of the brain. Usually, binaural beats are between 1Hz and 30Hz frequency which creates a brainwave pattern that you experience during meditation. The use of binaural beats in this way is sometimes called Brainwave Entrainment Technology.
Medical Studies are being undertaken to understand the benefits of Binaural beats. One such medical study has revealed that binaural beats can produce different effects at different frequency ranges. It showed that listening to delta range frequencies (1Hz to 4Hz) can help with deep sleep and relaxation while theta range (4Hz to 8Hz) can reduce anxiety, help you attain a meditative state and improve your creativity. If you’re feeling down and need some positivity, then you must listen to alpha range frequencies (8Hz to 13Hz) and to boost your concentration, alertness or problem-solving capabilities, try listening to beta range frequencies (14Hz to 3Hz).
So, how do you reap the benefits of binaural beats?
You don’t have to be a monk or spend hours in deep meditation to enjoy its benefits. You just need a comfortable place where you are free from distractions and can spare 30 minutes of your busy lifestyle (since it takes about 15 minutes for your brain to sync with the audio stimulus). More importantly, a headphone is recommended too!
