Managing Sleep, Stress and Building Resilience

Are you affected by serious or chronic Stress or Trauma?
Do you feel helpless or hopeless? Is there a sense of loss of control or a serious disruption? Not only during the current Coronavirus crisis but also in other traumatic situations such as bankruptcy, merges & acquisitions or serious HR issues we can be overwhelmed by our body’s and our brain’s response to Trauma and Stress.


Then, all too often the well meant-advice on breathing or doing Yoga or other means of calming down seem futile. Our inner reptile is hijacked and we are in a constant fight/flight mode and therefore need expert help.
Expert help that deconstructs the trauma and addresses each of its components. Help that is based on processes and technologies that are scientifically proven and clinically effective. Help that can be measured and where progress can be monitored. Help that will bring back perspective, make you feel confident in your decisions, enabling you to find hope and a way forward. Help that addresses and improves both your physical and mental wellbeing.
The experts at neuroCare can provide you with that professional advice and ultimately build your physical, emotional, spiritual and mental resilience in a sustainable way.

neuroCare Tip #1

Keep Track of Your Sleep Hygiene

Sleep is as important to your health as diet, exercise, sanitation, and other things we do to prevent illness. Your path to good mental health, coping with stressful situations and building resilience, starts with good sleep hygiene. Hyper-emotional feelings, impulsive thoughts and irrational thinking are linked to sleep deprivation. Long-term sleep deprivation can lead to anxiety and depression. Processing stressful experiences and information takes place during sleep. Although a stressful situation may have lead to increased sleep debt, there are practical steps you can take to get your sleep circadian rhythm and sleep quality back on track. The earlier you start practising good sleep hygiene, despite what is going on around you, the faster you will bounce back to good mental health.

Dr. Mark Ryan

Psychiatrist & Clinical DIrector,

“When you improve quality and more adequate duration of sleep, and you create a context for much better functioning in all areas of life, which can include a better mood and behavioural self-regulation; becoming more skilful; and an improved social, occupational and sporting performance.”




neuroCare Tip #2

Understand the Brain’s Stress Arousal Response

Our subjective, perceptual, behavioural and physiological states are all affected and profoundly influenced – mind, body, brain are prepared for what is experientially perceived in the world and or body as threat and loss of control – this is a subjective, psychophysiological state, not ‘reality’ which in the ‘cool light of day’ might be quite different from how it is perceived when in full flight-fight stress mode.

The experiential and physiological components of a sense of losing control and being under threat includes –
tension, increased heart rate, increased awareness of heart beat; fatigue and loss of energy, dry mouth, shortness of breath, abdominal discomfort, loss of appetite, later with cortisol excess increased appetite, sweatiness, feeling agitated, overwhelmed, like you are losing control; desire to run, avoid; impatience, irritability; loss of capacity for empathy and ‘reading’ emotions; a sense of pervasive threat; negativity bias; hypervigilance of threat cues; increased adrenaline and cortisol; muscle tension and postures; attentional, memory and other cognitive problems; trouble focusing and following directions; constantly focusing on what is threatening (obsessively checking the media.)

Mainstream Psychiatry and Psychology recognises Slow Diaphragmatic Breathing and Meditation to be essential techniques to manage stress and anxiety and regulate psychophysiological state.

neuroCare Tip #3

Exercise Your Brain

neuroCare Clinics Australia offers an online cognitive training program called My Brain Training. The purpose of this program is to allow an individual to engage in meaningful computer-based cognitive activities at home. The aim of these activities is to stimulate the brain to reach its full potential – like going to the gym, but for the brain! My Brain Training is based on 30 exercises to activate the brain, which was designed in association with a research project, led by Professor Dr Kawashima, a neuroscientist from Japan.
neuroCare Clinics Australia is offering a free trial account of My Brain Training to support clients and their families in self-isolation. (Offer ends 31 May 2020.)

We are also a leading provider of Neurofeedback, following evidence-based and personalised guidelines of the neuroCare Group. Neurofeedback ‘trains the brain’ for better cognitive performance and to help regulate certain brain activities. Patients attend sessions at least 2 times per week for anywhere between 30 to 40 sessions. After the learned brain activity has been consolidated, no further sessions are needed and lasting effects are generally observed.
