Using the body’s natural Theta waves aids study and helps with remembering new information. Theta waves occur normally within the brain during hypnogogic sleep; this is the phase of sleep which can be influenced by exterior stimuli such as the sound of an alarm clock being incorporated into the dream state.

It is very easy to induce Theta waves in the waking state; simply by breathing deeper and slower will change the way the brain is working. Change the breathing to the lower abdomen and consciously slow the breathing rate. After just a few minutes the brain will be in the Theta state and more receptive to remembering new information or allowing the retrieval of often buried information or memory.

Memories take time to form, so it is important to give the brain a chance to process and store the information, whether that’s the name of a new acquaintance, a phone number or directions for example. Try keeping the mind clear from clutter or distraction when taking in information; this enables the brain to focus on the information. Avoid complicated tasks or other distractions for a few minutes, this gives the mind or brain the best chance of processing and storing the information.
