Doing NeurOptimal® sessions is a bit like learning to read (although without the hard work!).
Once you know how to read, you can’t not know. But if you don’t read for a very long time, you might get a little rusty. Then once you jump back in, you quickly catch up and you’re off!
NeurOptimal® is very like that. Once you have done say 20 sessions, we like to say “you have it in your back pocket”. But if you get thrown off by something happening in your life, a session or two or three can get you right back. You can also stop training any time you want, and pick back up again later. It’s really up to you.
Alternatively, those of us who own NeurOptimal frequently consider it part of our own self-care, much like exercise. We are living tissue after all, and daily life stressors, lack of sleep and pollution all take their toll. You might want to run yourself weekly or monthly to stay tuned — it’s really up to you. It’s your brain doing the training after all. It will let you know when it wants a session!
At Zengar, we have found ways to easily keep it in our lives. We will often run a session while we are working. As long as we are not moving wildly (such as running on a treadmill) it’s fine because NeurOptimal® automatically ignores the noisy signal that prevents other systems from working. And our children will often do a session while doing their homework or playing a quiet game.
So yes, the benefits of NeurOptimal® do remains with you, and when life throws you an unexpected curve a few sessions can quickly help you find your way home.
