Because everyone’s central nervous system (brain) is different, it is not possible to predict exactly how your brain will respond to the information that NeurOptimal® provides. The key to success will come from using your own self-assessments using the self-reporting checklist as a guidepost. This checklist is key because it gives a numerical value to your goals and allows you to track your changes over time. Seeing the numbers change is a sign of progress! One of our goals as a certified NeurOptimal® trainer is to help clients notice how they are feeling. Noticing subtle changes helps you get ahead of your feelings, and maintain a sense of focus and calm. Self-awareness is the first step in success, because it is the key to identifying which tools will help re-regulate the mind, whether it is a NeurOptimal® session, going to bed early, eating healthy or exercising.
