You took the Busy Brain Test. Now what…?
The results are in. You know your score. Now, let’s do something about it.
Once you’ve had a chance to try out some of the brainSHIFTs I cover below, I encourage you to retake the Busy Brain Test to see how your score improves.
Understanding Your Busy Brain Test Results
What is Dr. Romie’s Busy Brain Test?
The Busy Brain Test is a validated neuropsychology stress test that measures the effect of stress on cognition, mood, sleep, and physical health.
Which category do you fit into?
score less than 30
Congratulations! You’re part of the exceptional 8% of test-takers who are remarkable stress managers. This means you display emotional resilience and possess effective stress management skills that allow you to maintain a positive mental attitude, no matter what comes your way.
If you’re in this category, making up around 10% of test-takers, you might often feel mentally drained despite getting rest and enough sleep.
If your score falls within this range, you’re part of the majority (over 82%) of test-takers. High levels of stress are straining your mental, hormonal, and physical health. If your score is above 60, you need to be extra careful as you are at a higher risk of burnout.
brainSHIFT to Tame a Busy Brain
Busy Brain manifests in a number of different ways. Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Chronic stress in our lives causes Busy Brain. And unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get off the chronic stress hamster wheel. Many of us become addicted to the stress-success cycle, using it as a coping mechanism rather than taking action to fix our Busy Brains.
But you can change that with the brainSHIFT Protocol.
The 7-Day brainSHIFT Challenge
The very foundation of the brainSHIFT Protocol is SLEEP. Sleep is so crucial to our well-being because it impacts every single system in our body. That’s why we always start by examining your sleep and taking steps to improve it.
Here’s how to do it:
For the next 7-days, commit to your sleep by taking the steps below. For even better results, keep it going for 14-days.
Step 1: Sleep Schedule
Sleep Schedule: For one week, go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day. Doing this reinforces your body’s natural circadian rhythm.
Step 2: Digital Detox
Digital Detox: Avoid using digital devices for at least 30 minutes before bedtime (60+ minutes is even better). This includes your phone, TV, laptop, and Kindle.
Step 3: brainDUMP
Use an old-fashioned pen and paper to get racing thoughts out of your head and onto paper before bed. Include to-do lists, worries, exciting ideas, etc.
Step 4: brainPAUSE
Use meditation to process thoughts and emotions. Guided techniques help you shift from digital chaos to a sense of tranquility before bed.
