Don’t let the holidays become something you dread. Instead, take steps to prevent the stress and depression that can descend during the holidays. Learn to recognize your holiday triggers, such as financial pressures or personal demands, so you can combat them before they lead to a meltdown.

Despite your best efforts, you may find yourself feeling persistently sad or anxious, plagued by physical complaints, unable to sleep, irritable and hopeless, and unable to face routine chores. If these feelings last for a while, come see MyBrainDR for some much needed therapy.

Neurofeedback therapy or training is a remarkable new application of a well-known technology found to reduce the symptoms of excessive stress, decrease anxiety, relieve emotional pressure, increase feelings of self-control, and equip individuals to cope with stress more efficiently during this holiday season. Similar to seeing your reflection in a mirror, neurofeedback uses the patient’s own brain waves as a self-regulating tool. The patient is guided using positive and negative cues in order to reinforce or inhibit certain brain wave patterns.

These neurological changes are long-lasting as they are reflected by the growth and development of new brain cells (neurons) in their connections and firing patterns. Neurofeedback can result in positive changes in your anxiety and reduce your stress long after the holiday rush is through.
