Stress And Your Monkee
Children experience stress very differently to adults. Childhood stress can take the form of long days at school, too many extra-curricular activities, poor sleep habits, poor nutrition, family dynamics and learning challenges to name but a few. The inability of a child to self-regulate their emotional state can lead to behavioural issues, separation, social and general anxieties, decreased cognitive function, attention deficits, tummy problems and a whole host of other signs and symptoms.
The human stress response is a full body major physiological event designed to save our self from a clearly defined present moment threat. It’s the type of response that it designed to save our lives, not to make us unwell and unhappy. This full body response engages different parts of our brain responsible for lightening quick reflexes and strength to fight, or flight. These survival parts of the brain are not designed for cognitive function, long attention spans or even memory and learning. When under stress it’s these areas of the brain that shut down leading to deficits in attention, learning, memory recall, impulse control and behavioural difficulties.
Here at Mindful Monkeez we use state of the art neurofeedback technology that analyzes your child's brain function and teaches them through the use of specialized computer games and videos how to self-regulate their attention, focus and enhance their ability to control their brain activity. The best part is that it is done in the comfort of your own home while our trained professionals monitor your child's progress online and in real time. ________
