We have read countless of studies over the years that describes the use of EEG to measure and train focus. They describe for how long and how often you should train focus with EEG to obtain an improved result. The result depends on the training schedule but also on the individual; It is easier for some people than others to obtain a physically well-trained body. The same goes for the brain.
We defined our 30DayChallenge training schedule in consultation with Neuroscientist & MD Philipp Heiler.
You should train for about 15 minutes per day, at least 5 days a week, for 4 weeks in a row. This amounts to a total of 20 sessions in a month’s time. We call it the 30DayChallenge.
This continuous training is needed similar to that of physical exercise; The brain and focus does not improve instantly after one session. You need to complete repeated sessions over a period of time in order to see results.
After The Training
Upon completion of the first 30DaysChallenge, you need to continue training. We recommend about 15 minutes twice a week. Again, it’s just like physical training – you need to maintain your new and improved physique.
There’s no harm in doing a new 30DaysChallenge once in a while when you feel a need to pump up your focus skill a bit.
The only thing we don’t recommend is to train for more than 15 minutes at the time. You will get tired, and it will most likely not do you any good. Better then to train once more at a later opportunity.
