So many folks have recently told me about their sleep problems! If you sleep great and stay asleep for at least five hours, then just bypass this article.
Advanced Brain Technologies has completed testing on their TLP Sleep program and has made it available for the public. It is sound therapy. See the link below for reviews and the science behind it if you or someone in your home needs to improve sleep patterns:
• Fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, naturally. Drug free!
• Block out distracting background noise
• Beat insomnia
• Support brain plasticity (the ability of your brain to adapt and to grow new neural connections)
A friend and her husband (in their 50's) have been testing it themselves for months. He no longer awakens several times a night to go to the bathroom and they are having deeper, longer, more refreshing sleep. The "headphones" are really like a headband, so you can sleep comfortably on your side, and two sharing a bed can use it at the same time with a 'splitter'. Cannot be used for children under 6-years-old.
I ordered it for myself today. If you decide you want to try it, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee. The TLP Sleep Program can be ordered online ($295 plus shipping), or order through my business and I'll pay $10.00 of your shipping through April 15th (my break for you) - just contact me prior to ordering!
For successful SLEEPers...zzzzz
Recently, my practice has had an increase in high school level learners. Some of these students have struggled for so long and seen little improvement that they have become resigned or defeated. They're done! It can be a real challenge to motivate them to "do hard things", to work through a therapeutic process to get real change for their learning and attention processes.
I've been pondering this for the past week and came across an article which may be helpful to you readers: http://www.onlinecollege.org/2012/12/05/10-surprising-findings-science-motivation/
May 2013 be a productive year for us all, and may we stay motivated to do and be our BEST in serving others.

This interesting piece came to our attention through the Learning Rx newsletter. Ken Gibson, the developer of the very successful PACE program, is also the founder of Learning Rx.
A university in Israel conducted studies of hand-clapping songs which revealed a link between those activities and cognitive skills development in children, young adults, and university students. Practicing motor skills while singing and staying on beat helps develop auditory processing, visual processing, and attention. Children—particularly those in first through third grade—who participated had neater handwriting, better writing skills, and made fewer spelling errors, too! One researcher stated, "There's no doubt such activities train the brain and influence development in other areas." Even adults benefit by becoming more focused and less stressed. Who knew the songs weren't just for fun? Read Research Confirms Hand-Clapping Songs Improve Cognitive Skills
