Can Brain Fitness Training Improve Happiness, Success, and Health?

Can practicing Peak BrainHappiness Training improve your long-term health and success?  Odds are, it can.  The evidence is now considerably more convincing than it was just a few months ago, due to two key findings. 

The Neureka! Brain System

The Peak BrainHappiness Trainer is a brainwave biofeedback system which detects and trains a clarification of the 40 Hertz EEG rhythm that is involved in learning about new discoveries.  This brain system, which we call Neureka! (short for Neural Eureka!), also rewards you for making new discoveries by enhancing positive feelings, probably by stimulating dopamine release in the Prefrontal Pleasure Center.  This is located in the medial prefrontal cortex, right under the electrode we use to measure the rhythm.  There are many published studies consistent with this new synthesis.

The Neureka! Protocol Measures Positive Feelings

We conducted several studies which examined the relationship between the Neureka! measurement—the clarified 40 Hz. measurement—and a variety of positive feelings.  In an experiment published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Dr. Beverly Rubik found strong relationships to happiness, love, satisfaction, and gratitude.  Two subsequent studies conducted by Dr. Estate Sokhadze of the Univ. of Louisville confirmed the relationship between a variety of positive feelings and Neureka! samples as short as six seconds.

Long Lasting Happiness

After the Neureka! training sessions in our study, the subjects  reported themselves 32% happier.  [A chart is available.]  Dr. Sokhadze (Dept. of Psychiatry, Univ. of Louisville) and I used the same question that the Australian happiness study did [see below] in our study to evaluate their happiness.  We now have evidence from a follow-up questionnaire, that the enhanced happiness lasts at least 4 months.  The responses to the same follow up question showed the same value for happiness improvement as the original measurement did right after training.  No loss!  This indicates that they learned happiness quite thoroughly after just five hours (12 sessions, 25 minutes each) of training.  Eight of the 11 subjects in the study indicated they felt happier in the four weeks after the study than they did in the four weeks before it.  Their memory was also improved.

The study was awarded a Citation by the Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, when it was presented at their 2011 Meeting. 

157 of 160 Studies Link Current Happiness to Future Health

A press release from the University of Illinois on March 2, 2011 stated: “Happy or positive people tend to have better health and live longer than their counterparts who are unhappy, U.S. researchers say. Ed Diener, professor emeritus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and colleagues reviewed more than 160 studies involving humans and animals under stress."  The UPI article  quotes Dr. Diener: "I was almost shocked and certainly surprised to see the consistency of the data. All of these different kinds of studies point to the same conclusion: that health and then longevity in turn are influenced by our mood states. Happiness is no magic bullet, but the evidence is clear and compelling that it changes your odds of getting disease or dying young."  Dr. Diener, who is one of the major researchers in positive psychology, posted the full article on his website.

The Large Australian Study

One of the articles that Diener cited is the study done by the Australian Dept. of Labour and analyzed by Siahpush et al., [See Abstract]  They surveyed nearly 10,000 people in 2001 and again in 2004.  Siahpush et al’s results from analyzing the survey indicated that those who were happy most of the time in 2001 were over 50% more likely to be both healthier and free of long term health concerns in 2004.

Happiness Leads to Success

For those who are looking for a more immediate payoff, enhancing happiness may also improve success.  Several years ago, Lyubomirsky and Diener published an article showing that this is actually more likely than success leading to happiness.  [See Abstract]. They discussed several different kinds of success – marriage, friendship, income, work performance and health -- and came to the same conclusion for each.

These studies bring us closer to the reality of enhancing happiness, health and longevity of people all over the world through brain fitness training.
