Training Hints: NeuroGlider

Last Updated: Jul 29, 2015 07:39PM UTC

The goal of NeuroGlider is to fly the glider as far and as high as possible. Just like all of our training games, the underlying goal is to train your brain to produce and maintain a new state, according to the protocol recommended for you. Work toward targeting an overall mindset, which is either a ‘calm, relaxed observational state’, or a ‘calm, focused attentive state’.

NeuroGlider monitors your brainwaves to control the elevation of the glider. The longer you maintain the targeted brain state, the higher and farther the glider will fly. As you become more in tune with your mind state, see how far and how high you can get in a single training session. The highest altitude being 10,000ft.

As your glider soars, you will see ‘rings’ throughout the sky, tilt your iPad to steer your glider through these rings. The rings will match your height and change color the higher you fly.

Halfway through the training a purple ring will appear, flying through this will transport you to a new environment with increased speed and smaller rings that are spaced further apart.

While training: Avoid any excessive movement, muscle tension, or conversations, as they can affect results.

Stress Index Training

As you play NeuroGlider, work to disengage and just watch the glider float. Let go of trying to control the glider, your ability to attain a quiet and present mind will ensure a successful flight of the glider. Let your thoughts come and go, without getting distracted or hung up on anything in particular. Observe the glider in the air, taking in the whole experience. While you can steer the glider gently left or right by tilting the iPad, don’t concentrate on ‘steering’ the glider, just watch it fly. Like the 3-D picture, look ‘through the screen’ with a neutral, calm mind.

Helpful Hints: Relax your body and stay present and aware of your glider. Allow it to rise into the sky, and avoid ‘trying’ or thinking ‘I can’t do this’.

Focus Index Training

Process what is happening on screen and notice to how you are feeling and what you are thinking when the glider is rising. This will help you stay present and to identify what it feels like to create the right level of focus. Keep your thoughts targeted on the various aspects of the game, like the wings, the altitude, the wind, the landscape below, or even your accumulating NeuroPoints. Keep your mind from wandering.

Helpful Hints: Relax, but stay ‘in the glider’. Pay Attention, Take all the small details of the glider and landscape at once. Be ‘In’ the moment while keeping your mind calm.
