Have you ever heard of Binaural Beats? Chances are you have heard of this soundwave phenomenon that has been flying around the internet. People may dub these mind-altering frequencies as a mere FAD, however, as you’ll find out in this article, there’s a lot of scientific studies that suggest otherwise.
But what exactly are Binaural Beats? How do they work? Will they work for you?
In this article, we’re going to show you how you can use binaural beats as part of your entrepreneurial lifestyle. They can help reduce stress, relieve anxiety, and dramatically increase your productivity.
What Are Binaural Beats Exactly?
They are known as auditory illusions. They are created when two different sine wave frequencies are below 1500Hz, and a maximum on 40Hz apart, are played to each ear simultaneously.
The idea is that this disparity between the two sound waves forces the brain to find the difference between the two frequencies, which induces the brain into specific brainwave states – alpha, beta, theta, or delta.
All of the brainwave states that are induced by binaural beats have a variety of different benefits, including increased focus, improved mood, and better overall mental clarity.
How They Can Help You
There are many scientific studies showing that binaural beats offer a huge array of benefits for everyone.
One recent study, conducted by Dr. Giampapa, had participants listen to binaural beats audios for 4 hours a day, over 3 days. The results were astonishing. Giampapa found that participants were able to increase their DHEA levels by over 43% on average. Participants also saw their levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, drop by a staggering 46%, whilst also seeing their levels of melatonin skyrocket nearly 100% – amazing!
The results from the aforementioned study should give you a real insight into how powerful binaural beats can be. As entrepreneurs, we’re very often under stress and pressure. This, unfortunately, correlates with having high cortisol levels and most likely low levels of melatonin. Especially those of us who have trouble sleeping at night.
Using binaural beats can improve your life as an entrepreneur. You would have the ability to maintain and drive down your stress levels, keeping you feeling calmer, and thinking with more clarity, all of which can help you dramatically improve your productivity.
