mental training with music

The examples of mental training presented here can be very helpful if you use them as described. However, they are not a substitute for the work of a coach or a therapist.

You should only train with m4b if you can concentrate on yourself and have no other responsibilities such as driving a car, operating machines or looking after others.

Process stressful experiences

Relieve occurrences

Sometimes we experience situations that keep us stressed for a long time and even rob us of sleep. The associated negative feelings (maybe anger, shame, helplessness, fear) determine your thoughts.

You may want to be able to deal with such memories unencumbered. The m4b tracks can help you to successfully process these experiences and get them out of your head.

It is in the character of growth that we should learn from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences.

Mental training: Processing a negativ experience

Use the emotions scale to estimate how uncomfortable the experience feels to you when you think back on it. Start the music, listen to it through headphones, and spend two to three minutes doing other things. That could be some light automated work, a look out of the window, or something neutral. Then think of the particular situation you have experienced while the music continues.

Then let the experience run inside your head like a film and relive the situation with all the senses involved. If the experience comes with a body feeling, include this. Stop the movie when what is bothering you has happened. Now run the film backward. You can repeat this a few times. What do you think about the situation now? What is your rating on the scale now? When you have reached -1 or 0, you have processed the matter internally and can think back on it without stress.
