Now and then, I simply borrow someone else’s tip of the week.
Since it is 11:45 and I am still up answering emails, I am going to do just that.
This tip comes from Bill Myers. I am doing exactly what he recommends at the moment. I am listening to soothing music on You Tube. I’ve got to get back to work, so here’s Bill:
Bill Myers Tip of the Week – August 12, 2017
Heal Your Brain?
They say that ‘Music hath charms to soothe a savage beast’.
I don’t know if that holds true in every case, but I do know that in our house when my wife tunes our XM radio to the Spa channel (music you can relax to), our normally rambunctious two-year-old male cat, will settle down in front of the speakers and nod off to sleep.
Me, I prefer the soothing strains of Pink Floyd. Especially when I drive.
But a lot of people, millions it seems, like to listen to what’s being called ‘mind wave’. Music that is supposed to heal the brain, relieve stress and soothe nerves.
You can see evidence of this on YouTube, where videos with titles like ‘Heal your brain fast’, get tens of millions of views.
Whether these videos with their mind wave audio tracks can actually heal your brain is debatable. What isn’t debatable though, is the number of views they get. Some have close to a hundred million.
The thing is, these mind wave videos are easy to create – no video camera or special equipment needed. In fact, it took me less than ten minutes to create one of my own.
If you want to see what mind wave videos are and how to create them, check out the short video I posted on my site. I’m not promising what you see and hear will ‘heal your brain’, but it might.

Have a Happy Sunday, everyone.
