Quiet the 2 key brain regions associated with most struggle

Brain research has mapped a lot of our brain's networks.
By quieting certain regions we can change how we feel and think very quickly.
Changes can take as little as 3 minutes.

Quieting of the

Amygdala

The amygdala is activated when stressed, in fear or in fight-or-flight situations.

Use QuietHamster to quiet that region and to come back to your base level.

Quieting of the

Default Mode Network (DMN)

The DMN is activated when we worry, overthink, and think negatively.


Use QuietHamster will help you quiet that brain region and to come back to your base level.

Bilateral eye movements quiet down the amygdala.

Bi-lateral eye movements have been used to treat patients with PTSD for 20 years.

Papers from leading scientific publications like Neurons, Cell and Nature have confirmed what bilateral eye-movements do: It quiets down the Amygdala, the fight-or-flight region of the brain.

Mindfulness calms the Default Mode Network quickly.

Research has shown that even 30 seconds of mindfulness can have a positive impact on mental and physical health, including reducing stress, improving focus, and increasing relaxation.

For example, one study found that people who practiced a 30-second mindfulness exercise before a stressful task had lower cortisol levels and performed better on the task.

About QuietHamster

I originally built this tool in 2020 to solve my own chronic procrastination. Through experimentation, I have learned a lot.  

Procrastination is like a freeze response (as in fight-or-flight-or-freeze).  It's seen in the brain as a highjacked amygdala.

So, to get out of the freeze response and solve procrastination, we must first quiet down the amygdala.  Science has shown that doing bilateral eye movements calms down that brain region (learn more about the research).

Another important brain network involved in procrastination is the DMN (the Default Mode Network).  When we procrastinate, our brain generates stories, excuses, and reasons to delay what we know we should be doing.   This can be seen in brain scans with the DMN being activated.

Research has shown that we can quiet down the DMN by paying attention to body sensations (being mindful), something very well researched.
