Dating and relationships are hard work - especially in 2019. Though some argue technology is the leading culprit in romantic demise, new tech has also given us incredible insight into love and relationships. Dr. Patrick Porter says there is a fascinating link between brainwaves and romance.
Brainwave training has been found to help people de-stress and achieve emotional balance. It is proven to help people who struggle with stress, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, - all of which are extremely important factors when it comes to romance and relationships.
Dr. Porter recently presented research along with Arianna Huffington at the National Biohacking Conference in Los Angeles. According to research, sleep plays a major role in relationships. When we sleep poorly, the parts of our brain devoted to emotional empathy don’t function as well. Sleep loss causes social withdrawal and loneliness and more instances of anger and aggression. Not surprisingly, anxiety and stress can seriously impact your relationship. Dr. Porter says,
The light and sound stimulation boost brain levels of serotonin, beta-endorphins, and norepinephrine. These are the same chemicals that are released during attraction and make us giddy, energetic, and euphoric.
