Alpha waves are present when your brain is in an idling default-state typically created when you're daydreaming or consciously practicing mindfulness or meditation. Alpha waves can also be created by doing aerobic exercise.
Mindfulness training and meditation tend to produce noticeably more alpha waves without the use of technological machinery.
Quick and effective exercises to activate Alpha waves;
Slowing down your breathing
Visualizing something relaxing
Solitary walk in the woods or by a lake
Focusing on more inner experience than whats going on around you.
Everything starts to feel better and warmer?, or maybe you got chills? feel the awe and magic all around? feels like everything will turn out okay in the end?
Well welcome to the alpha state:)
