How Does Anxiety Affect The Brain & Can You Stop It?

How Does Anxiety Affect The Brain & Can You Stop It?

For many people, it’s hard to recall when the anxiety wasn’t always there.  When did it go from being a reaction to something new, to now just being a constant state of being? Anxiety or stress should not be an ongoing state, but rather a reaction to something that is triggered via a fight or flight response.  So how does anxiety affect the brain?

If you don’t recognize that you have anxiety, it’s unlikely you would know how to stop your anxiety in its tracks.  It can be done, but let’s go back for a minute to understand what might be going on.

How Does Anxiety Affect The Brain?

Our brains are hardwired to keep us safe and were designed (who knows how long ago) to ensure we do react to stressful situations.  The classic example is seeing a tiger or lion in the wild, and getting a message to “run like hell.” 

What Part Of The Brain Controls Anxiety?

The little guy in the brain that sends that message is called the amygdala (let’s call it Miggy), and since (most days) we no longer have to run from lions and tigers, we need a way to calm Miggy down.  

Miggy is quite small, shaped like an almond, and it’s like the communications hub in the brain, both getting signals and issuing responses.  Perhaps we should be calling it Miggy the modem! That was a bad IT joke if you missed it.

Miggy has quite a long memory, possibly longer than this lifetime, which might explain the lion-just-spotted type reactions.  Why else are we jumping out of our skins when we just dropped a jar of peanut butter or heard a car door close nearby?

What Chemical In The Brain Causes Anxiety?

When that fight or flight response occurs, the brain is flooded with cortisol and norepinephrine.  Both of these chemicals are designed to make you react, by in part, boosting your adrenals.  They can increase your perception, and determine how quickly you respond in dangerous situations. 

Long term exposure to cortisol can cause damage to the hippocampus, which is where our long and short term memories are stored.  Interestingly, it’s the hippocampus, which is first damaged when people first experience Alzheimer’s Disease.

What Happens To The Brain When We Have Anxiety?

Your body is primed by the cortisol and norepinephrine, getting your heart rate up, your blood being pushed into muscles, and more air in the lungs.  With all this happening, your body is better able to cope with the impending danger.

After the danger has passed, all this is supposed to go back to normal. 

And there’s the catch.

If you are reacting to dropping a jar, or a car door closing, chances are Miggy is not able to go back to Sleep.  Instead, Miggy remains on alert to some extent while our bodies remain under some level of stress – imagined or real.

Signs Of Anxiety To Be Aware Of:

If you are not sure whether you have anxiety, let’s have a look at some of the reg flags:

  • Is your mind currently racing, looking for what might go wrong next?
  • Do you play the blame game when things go wrong, vs. accepting responsibility?
  • When things go well, do you find some external excuse rather than giving credit to yourself?
  • Do you find it difficult to relax or get to Sleep?

These are some of the signs, but there is a wide range of other symptoms of anxiety.

How Can You Stop Anxiety?

There are so many things you can do to stop anxiety.  You don’t need to try all of the following, but it would pay to try a variety and see what works for you.  In no particular order:

  1. Stop looking at screens for at least an hour before bed, and preferably get some glasses that block out both blue and green lights. Here’s a link to an Australian company that will make up glasses with your prescription included. It’s recommended you wear such glasses once the sun has gone down.
  2. Establish a pre-sleep routine, which might include having a bath, herbal tea, playing some relaxing music.
  3. Get better quality sleep.  Try going to sleep at the same time each night and aim for at least 8 hours of sleep.  Both of the previous steps will help you to get better quality sleep.
  4. Get out in nature, go for a walk, sit and watch the birds, just get outside and let yourself get distracted by nature.
  5. Any other form of exercise will also be a great help.
  6. Distract yourself with movement.  Dance to your favorite tunes.  Another simple thing to do is just to bounce a ball around.  It will help distract Miggy for a while.

If you do have anxiety, try out some of these techniques, and be patient with yourself as well.  Chances are you did not become anxious after just one event, so it may take some time to calm yourself down as well.  But you can do it!

The Bellabee device also has settings for Anti-Anxiety and Improve Sleep, both of which would help you and Miggy with stopping anxiety.


7 Productivity Tips For Those Working From Home in 2020

7 Productivity Tips For Those Working From Home in 2020

Improve concentration working from home

There are now millions of people working from home due to the innovator called COVID-19.  While many of us used to work from home occasionally to be there for a property inspection or await a furniture delivery, now anyone who can work from home IS working from home.

And if you are new to this phenomenon, you may have found that it takes some focus to get well – Focused!  So if you are new to all this, here are 7 productivity tips for working from home.  Learn these to help you remain focused and get on with the work at hand.

7 Productivity Tips For Working From Home

Designate a special work area

Create a workspace that is just for you during your working hours.  It need not be a different spot to your old home desk, but it may need a quick renovation.  Now it the time to give it a spring clean: remove anything that could be a distraction, give it a good clean, and put back just those few things that remind you of a calming workspace.

Establish a routine to start your workday

In my workspace, I have a candle, a trophy, and some rosemary essential oil.  Rosemary helps focus the brain. So when I come into my workspace, I light my candle, acknowledge my trophy, and inhale a breath of rosemary.  That routine sets my intention to start the workday. There are more things you could do, so find a routine that fits in with your day and your intentions.

Plan your day to be productive

Whether you use an online diary or a paper diary, each day should start with some basic planning.  List at least 3 important things you need to accomplish that day. If there is one that kind of makes you squirm, that is probably the one you should start with.  Think of this one as slaying your dragons early! Get that task out the way, and you can bask in that achievement.

Mel Robbins talks about planning her day at the end of the previous day, while she is still very much in work mode – otherwise known as The Zone.  She takes a few minutes and outlines what needs to be done tomorrow.

Dress for success (at least from the waist up)

Chances are you will be on Zoom, Skype, Messenger or Microsoft Teams at some stage today, so make sure you are looking the part from when you start the day.  As the camera is only going to show your top half, that should be the best-dressed half during working hours at least. You will also feel more like being productive when you add this to your working from home routine.  If you are a woman spending a lot of time at the computer, one way to give your back and shoulders extra support is by wearing a good posture support bra.

Avoid distractions by avoiding social media

Unless you work in marketing or advertising, chances are social media is not required during the day.  One way to avoid it is to set up a work browser, so it has no bookmarks, tabs or notifications. If you are using Chrome, click on your photo or icon in the top right, then press “Add” under Other People. I called mine “Me @ Work” You can also use a chrome extension called Momentum which helps you avoid distractions and even gives you motivating quotes each time to open a new tab.

Keep up with team meetings

One of the ways you were productive in the office was because of team meetings holding you to account.  So keep having those meetings, just make them online and keep them brief.  If you find it difficult to be accountable to yourself, then be accountable to your boss or to the team.  You can also pay it back, by holding others to account.

Schedule breaks in while working from home

Just because you can work all day does not mean that you should.  Schedule brief breaks in during the day, which can coincide with hanging out washing, weeding the veggie patch, or phoning a friend.  Just keep these breaks brief, so you have left time for a proper lunch break. At lunchtime, try and get outside for a walk, or do some exercise.  I found this lady on YouTube who is fabulous.

If these productivity tips for working from home are not enough to get you fully focused, you could also consider wearing a brain training device that offers a Concentration mode.  The Bellabee is one such device and helps me focus for an hour at a time.

The Top 16 Physical Signs of An Anxiety Attack

The Top 16 Physical Signs of An Anxiety Attack


Anxiety is the body’s response to unknown circumstances. In moderation, anxiety is normal and a healthy reaction. It’s normal to experience occasional anxiety. In fact, it is what helps us focus, remain alert and can be the motivation to solve problems or get out of dangerous situations.

However, when anxiety is experienced frequently when it is uncontrollable, overwhelming to the
point of hindering you to function properly, it’s when you know the amount of anxiety you are experiencing is unhealthy.

We explore how common anxiety is, what the physical signs of anxiety are, and offer some simple yet effective ways to stop your anxiety.

How Common is Anxiety?

Anxiety attacks are a common condition and are spreading rapidly. In the US, 40 million people experience anxiety each year. 1 in 13 people all over the world suffers from anxiety.

With that number of people experiencing anxiety attacks, you would hope to be able to easily find information online that would genuinely help you. However, it is not as easy to find reliable information online as you would hope.

Are Anxiety Attacks like Panic Attacks?

There are many misconceptions, including the clinical difference between panic attacks and anxiety.

Panic attacks are more intense than anxiety attacks. Another distinction between the two is that panic attacks are experienced out of the blue while an anxiety attack is a response to a situation.

For an anxiety attack to happen, there is a triggering factor. It comes after a period of worry and restlessness. In addition, panic attacks subside after a few minutes while anxiety symptoms, although less severe than panic attacks, can go on for a long period of time.

Panic attacks are most likely the result of witnessing or experiencing trauma or when a person has a phobia. They can occur without any history of illness or disorder and are more frequent in women than in men.

Panic attacks can last between 10-30 minutes or up to an hour in worst cases, while anxiety attacks can last much longer, depending on the stressors, they can last for days or even weeks.

The Top 16 Physical Signs of an Anxiety Attack

  1. being easily startled
  2. experiencing chest pain
  3. dizziness
  4. having a dry mouth
  5. experiencing fatigue even upon waking
  6. feelings of fear
  7. irritability
  8. loss of concentration
  9. muscle pain
  10. numbness or tingling in the extremities
  11. a rapid heart rate
  12. restlessness
  13. shortness of breath
  14. sleep disturbances, either not being able to get to sleep, or waking early
  15. the feeling of being choked or smothered
  16. having difficulty breathing

Simple Solutions to Calming Anxiety

It’s useful to keep a diary of all the symptoms being experienced, and how frequently they occur.  If four or more symptoms are being experienced, this could be a panic attack and require a different treatment approach.  

It’s important to know what to do if you are experiencing an anxiety attack.

Firstly breathe deeply and slowly, try to count as you are breathing and really just focus on the breath for a few minutes.

Find a mantra which you find calming, such as “I am safe, I am loved, I am worthy”.  Now try saying your mantra as you are swaying from side to side. That acts as a diversion for your brain.

Try spending a few minutes writing down why you are feeling anxious, then without overthinking it try and come up with a few things you can try to do about it. You could even try writing what your ideal day feels like. Sometimes just writing things like this down gets it out of your head.

Try a New Bedtime Routine

Find a bedtime routine that helps you get a good night’s sleep. There are many different things you can have in your routine, but some of the basics are no screen time for the hour before bed.  Try reading a book that makes you smile, have a relaxing bath or play some music.

As you are falling asleep you could play some music or listen to a sleep story.

Drug-Free Alternative to Reduce Anxiety

For more help reducing anxiety and falling asleep you could consider wearing a Bellabee as that has a setting for Anti-Anxiety, and it also has an Improve Sleep setting.  It can be worth a try as it is a drug-free option for treating anxiety. 

The Bellabee is a wearable device that you wear like a headband and is connected to your smartphone.  Your smartphone runs the Bellabee app.  Read some reviews about the Bellabee.

Changes To The Bellabee Apps in 2020

Changes To The Bellabee Apps in 2020

The Bellabee developers have been busy making updates to the Bellabee apps, and we are liking what we see! At this point, the changes to the apps are for Apple IOS only, but the Android changes are coming soon.

What Are The Main Changes To The Bellabee App?

  • Previously there were two apps you needed to download to access the full range of Bellabee programs, but now you just need the one – which is still called Bellabee.
  • You can no longer just extend the existing programs.  This was changed as it might not be the best way to run the protocol for a longer period of time, as it was just playing the last frequency in the program for an extended period.
  • However, you can add in a new program (called Therapies) and it has way more options now.  There is a much larger range of frequencies, time periods (by minute up to 120 minutes), and you can add in as many stages as you like.
  • When that new program is added in you can also name it.
  • When running the Bellabee if you check your phone you see what frequency is currently running, and how long it has to run.

Check out the How To Use page for further details.

So with the changes to the Bellabee apps, here’s what the app looks like now:

The image on the left is what you see when you first click on the app, then the Preset General, and the Preset Health.

New Bellabee App Bellabee_main_apps Bellabee_health_apps

How To Add In A New Therapy

It’s easy to add in a new Therapy, just navigate to MY SELECTION, and press the plus sign (+) which is located on the top right.

  • Click on Phase 1 and update the frequency and duration
  • Then Click on Add Phase and update the frequency and duration
  • When you  have finished adding phases add a description.  It needs to be at least 20 characters.
  • If you make a mistake, you can swipe right to delete or edit it.
  • To add it to the Exchange Room, also swipe right.

This is what it looks like when you are adding a new Therapy, and the image to the right of that is what happens when you swipe right.

Specialists Can Add Programs

This new feature is really exciting, as it demonstrates just how many professionals, such as Neurofeedback specialists, are working with Bellabee.  By sharing these protocols it gives other specialists further opportunities to extend how the Bellabee is used.

Seeing so many Specialists working with Bellabee ads credibility to how effective the Bellabee is, which can only be good for the Bellabee community.

It’s important for Specialists to add a clear description to the name of the Therapy, so other Specialists can easily see what it is to be used for.

Specialists Can Be Contacted

There is also a section within the Bellabee app where specialists familiar with the Bellabee can be contacted, so Bellabee users can easily find a professional to work with, to help them find the best programs for them.

When people have multiple issues such as anxiety, poor sleep and poor concentration, it would pay to find out which programs should be used just for you.  It may be more hit and miss if you just try each program out.

Most people visiting a Neurofeedback Specialist for the first time would have a QEEG run, to assess exactly what brainwave patterns are occurring, and then the Specialist would be able to determine the best frequencies to be used with the Bellabee.

By having the QEEG, you also determine your baseline or starting point, and later when you are feeling improved, another QEEG would demonstrate the current brainwave patterns.

Just note, most of the specialists listed in the Bellabee directory at the moment, are from North America.  Hopefully, as more specialists learn about the Bellabee, there will be many more added around the world.

What Do You Need To Do

Make sure your phone has updated the new Bellabee app, and check out the new features and layout.  You should find it really easy to navigate.  The only thing you may want to do is to remove the old Bellabee Health app, as you don’t need that anymore – those features are available via the Bellabee app.

The importance of REM sleep

Get help with insomnia

Sleep is an important part of our daily routine as it plays a vital role in our overall health and what we do while we are awake. It is as important as food and water. This fact has been proven by several studies on human sleep patterns and on a daily basis, the only proof that we need is the immediate feeling of exhaustion whenever we don’t get the 7-8 hours of sleep which is recommended for adults.

Our bodies have been conditioned to spend ⅓ of the day sleeping. It is when our body recharges as it goes through various sleeping cycles. Each sleep phase or cycle is important as every stage plays its role in recharging the body. However, the most important stage is what we call the rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. 

During the REM sleep stage is when our brain is most active. Our eyes move rapidly in several directions and the various regions of the brain are being stimulated. This stage is important for normal brain development in newborn babies which explains why they spend the majority of their time sleeping.  In adults, it is harder to achieve REM sleep due to several factors which we will discuss further later.

In an article published at, the REM sleep stage helps in improving the cognitive functions such as learning, memory and thinking or analysis. Several studies also found that REM has an impact on the development of mental skills such as focus, motivation, discipline, and socialization, and it also helps increase in the production of proteins which is why professional athletes put so much importance in their sleep.

REM sleep time is also when our brain cells contract so that a fluid can flush through the brain and send toxins out.  So REM sleep is literally helping to clean out the junk in your brain. There’s a great explanation of how this works over on YouTube.

What happens when we don’t get quality sleep?

Getting enough sleep is important and the consequences of sleep deprivation won’t be immediately obvious, but slowly, your body will feel the ill-effects. It will gradually impact your emotional health and can cause you to make poor decisions, be unable to concentrate, it can cause migraines, and even prohibit weight loss. Worse than that, it can lead to mental health issues, impair memory, and make you stressed out.

As humans age, nighttime sleep becomes shorter and lighter. We can be interrupted several times during the night by children, and certain foods & medication can also cause interrupted sleep. Adults also tend to sacrifice sleep for longer hours at work or for socializing and travel, thinking we can catch up on sleep during free time. It can help, but this can easily lead to a habit that is not really recommended. That is because when you don’t get quality sleep even for one night, your normal sleeping cycle has been destroyed and your REM sleep stage is disrupted. If your REM is disrupted once, your body’s sleeping cycle won’t go through its normal circadian sleep cycle which we commonly refer to the body’s biological clock. You will go through extended periods of REM sleep until you are able to catch up on the sleep stages that you missed. 

Lack of REM sleep is said to be linked to reduced coping skills during stressful situations, poor mental skills such as decision making and concentration can cause migraines and is also associated with weight gain. Studies have emphasized the danger of sleep deprivation. In several studies, people who were sleep-deprived were asked to perform a hand-eye coordination task and what they observed was that sleep-deprived people performed worse than people who were intoxicated. Obviously, this all means that a lack of REM sleep will lead to poor performance at work and having low energy to perform do day-to-day activities.

In extreme cases, sleep deprivation can lead to sleep disorders such as insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, and restless leg syndrome. It can also trigger other diseases, cause mental health issues, and stress.

What can we do to improve REM sleep?

The goal is to get quality sleep and enhance both REM and NREM sleep so our body and brain can maximize the benefits that sleep brings.

  • Treat medical conditions

Being sleep-deprived can be a side effect of a medical condition so it is important to see a doctor first and ask for professional advice.

  • Reduce waking up at night

As much as possible, avoid waking up at night as this will hinder or reduce the number of REM phases you are supposed to experience. Turn off any light that might disturb you and put on do not disturb on your phone. Make sure it’s quiet if you are sensitive to noise.  Try using earplugs or noise-canceling earbuds.

  • Avoid eating and drinking an hour before bedtime

Drinking and eating an hour before bedtime will mean you go to bed without your body still has to digest, and it might stop you from needing to go to the bathroom overnight.

  • Organize a Bedtime routine and stick to it

Plan out a bedtime routine and make a habit of going to sleep at the same time each night. For your routine, you can start with a bath or some skincare rituals. Read a book. Turn off all the lights and block all light sources. Try playing some relaxing music before bed. In just a few days, your mind and body will learn that these activities mean you should go to bed soon and the mind will signal the body to prepare for sleep.

How To Improve Sleep by Wearing the Bellabee

One helpful tool to maximize your chances of getting a good night’s sleep is the Bellabee. Bellabee is a band that is worn on the head which is designed to send the right wavelengths for the brain to mimic. It uses the PEMF technology to create the brain’s natural frequency. In just a few minutes, the brain will have a better functioning rhythm.

 You would use the Improve Sleep mode and put it on for 2 hours.  I often use anti-anxiety and improve sleep mode an hour before sleeping.  It’s ok to try out different modes to see which one works best for you.

If you have been struggling to sleep, try out the Bellabee and use it before going to sleep. You can see for yourself how quickly it works. In 3 weeks you should be able to tell if it works for you or not. What’s great is that Bellabee has a 45-day guarantee which is long enough to find out if it can help.  In our experience, most people notice results in 1 – 3 weeks. It is definitely worth a try.

Can Bellabee Help With Depression?

Can Bellabee Help With Depression?

Depression can impact virtually anyone from men to women, across all age ranges, and people from all types of socio-economic backgrounds.

There are over 5 types of depression but some of the most prevalent types of depression consist of:

  • Clinical depression
  • Depressive episodes
  • Recurrent depressive disorder
  • SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

Often, depression can be confused with feelings of temporary sadness or being upset yet clinical depression can have long-lasting and debilitating effects and symptoms that take over an individual’s daily life.

Depression can manifest itself in numerous ways and vary from mild to severe symptoms; however. it often consists of extremely low mood, sleeping too much or too little, a change in appetite, physical tension, and even suicidal thoughts.

How Can Depression Impact Our Lives?

Based on recent statistics and research, in the USA around 71% of adolescents have experienced a major depressive episode along with 16.2 million adults that have also experienced depression.

These extremely high figures are constantly fluctuating and increasing; plus, this also excludes those that are too afraid to come forward to discuss their illness or the symptoms of depression that they experience.

Depression can often lead to feelings of low self-worth and guilt which can leave individuals to be left feeling isolated and alone with the illness and too reluctant to reach out for help and support.

Experiencing depression can consist of being lost in a cycle of endless negative thoughts and feelings. The emotions can be so oppressive that individuals can feel completely cut-off from the rest of the world and therefore they only further exclude themselves from social gatherings and events.

Additionally, there can also be concurrent feelings of anxiety too and you might witness a friend or a loved one abandoning hobbies and interests that they enjoy and even being apprehensive to leave the house.

How To Treat Depression?

There are numerous ways to treat depression including natural methods and remedies; medication; and talking therapies. The amount and intensity of therapy required to treat depression can largely depend upon how much the symptoms of depression affect a person’s life and in most scenarios, this needs to be assessed by a doctor.

For those that are more prone to periodic episodes of depression that vary from a low to moderate intensity, regular exercise such as jogging or swimming and counseling can be a strong solution.

Meditation may also help those with depression, as it gives the brain a break from negative thoughts and allows the individual to focus on something gentle like the sounds of nature.

Alternatively, more serious symptoms that are aligned with clinical depression may require a more in-depth approach with CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) that focuses on changing unproductive behavior and negative thinking patterns.

In moderate to severe cases of depression SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) may be prescribed by doctors to treat depression but there are many side effects that always need to be taken into consideration.

How Can Bellabee Help To Alleviate Depression?

Bellabee is a wearable head device that can be used simultaneously with a smartphone and once you are wearing the headset, you can then select one of the available modes, or you can add your own therapy (especially if it is as provided by your therapist).

Based on scientific research, the Bellabee has been designed to measure brainwaves.  During different activities, our brain responds in different ways; measured in Hz, the Bellabee sends variant signals to match the brain activity. Overall, the electro-magnetic pulses released from the headband train your brain to send the correct brain patterns and frequencies.

Throughout episodes of depression and anxiety, it is common for brain patterns to either be at a frequency that is too low or too high therefore increasing levels of stress and making concentration difficult.

With the use of the Bellabee, its effects can not only reduce the feelings of stress within 30 minutes or so, but it can also produce a highly calming and meditative result.

Other users of the Bellabee have reported a reduction in appointments with psychiatrists, which is not surprising as clinical tests have revealed changes in brain activity in under 3 minutes.

The intense feelings of lethargy can strongly impact an individual’s ability to concentrate on work or studies and by selecting the ‘concentrate mode’ this can mean you will be able to focus on those activities that depression can regularly interfere with.

Long-term Positive Effects of the Bellabee

There can be numerous quick-fixes available for depression such as consuming too much caffeine to claim that energy boosts or becoming highly reliant on medication that may relieve symptoms of depression yet produce unwanted side-effects such as weight gain and reduced libido.

The Bellabee is a perfect and relatively affordable solution, priced around $150.00, that can increase your productivity, improve your sleeping patterns which will then have a positive knock-on effect on your depression.

Herbal treatments such as St John’s Wort can also be considered an option for those that want to avoid prescription drugs or consider other avenues but as a long-term and affordable solution, the Bellabee is a must-have!

How Bellabee Can Help With Anxiety

How Bellabee Can Help With Anxiety

Anxiety is so common these days it’s part of our daily lives.  But we do have a choice, and one choice we have is to whether we let ourselves try something that might help us feel better.  Using the Bellabee Anti-anxiety mode is one of those things that seems almost too simple – but what if it really helps!

The Anti-anxiety mode is one of the many modes that Bellabee has, which when run, shows our brain waves another set of waves which can reduce anxiety.  It may only take 30 minutes to feel a difference, or it may take a few days.  With any of the Bellabee modes, it is recommended that you try it for around three weeks, but many people notice improvements sooner.

A Natural Approach To Treating Anxiety

If you are suffering from anxiety and would prefer a more natural approach than prescription drugs, then the Bellabee may be worth considering.  Please also consider working with a Neurofeedback specialist as they can monitor how your brain is responding to the Bellabee and may be able to suggest a more personalized setting to run the Bellabee on for you.

How To Use Bellabee To Help With Anxiety

To use the Bellabee to help with anxiety, connect up the Bellabee, and run the app called Anti-Anxiety.  Run it for at least 30 minutes and see how you feel.  I would try running it for an hour a day for at least 3 weeks.  As the Bellabee is running it is training the brain, so over time you will be exercising the brain and it will be learning new pathways.

You don’t need to be doing anything in particular while you are wearing the Bellabee, so you could wear it while working on your computer, reading, or watching television.  You could also just nap while you are using the Bellabee.

How to order Bellabee

To order your new Bellabee, just click this link.  There is a 45-day guarantee and postage is free.  It’s certainly worth trying if you are looking for a natural way to treat anxiety.

Wearing A Bellabee For The First Time

When you first start using your new Bellabee, it’s important to ensure you are wearing it correctly.  The Bellabee needs to be sitting just above the neck.  If you feel at the back of your head, it’s where the round part of your head meets the flat end of your neck.

Placing the Bellabee here is best so your brain picks up the waves being sent by the Bellabee.  It’s these waves that are creating the patterns that your brain picks up on.  As your brain learns these new waves, the condition you are wanting to treat gets underway.

You can move around while the Bellabee is on, just make sure your phone is moving with you as well.  I often put my phone in my pocket and move around without disrupting the Bellabee at all.

It can pay to set a timer on your phone for the same time your program is running for, so you get a reminder when it’s finished and can set the same program to run again, or run a new program entirely.

Don’t expect to feel anything while you are wearing the Bellabee, it’s very subtle as it is running.  If you are running the Anti-Stress program, you might not feel anything for 30 minutes, but then you start to yawn.  That yawning is a good sign that it is doing something for you.

If you are using the Bellabee Meditation setting, you may well feel more in-tune as you go about your meditation practice.  This is the setting that I have found most noticeable in terms of being able to feel something while wearing it.  But I’m really just feeling like I am having a better meditation.
