After reading some comments sent to us from our customers regarding the levels of difficulty with some of our games, we would like to share with you the rationale that led us to set up the levels.
To achieve an effective brain training, the brain must be challenged with the right degree of difficulty.
– if the level is too easy, there will be no brain modification and playing the games becomes a routine activity, not a brain exercise. If you experience immediate success, there is no victory to achieve, no challenge to overcome.
– if the level is too difficult, your motivation will be negatively impacted because it takes a lot of dedication to persevere at a high degree of difficulty.
The ideal is to work above what we call « the comfort zone »: try and try again and you will be successful.
At Happy Neuron we chose to setup rather challenging levels of difficulty. If the easy levels seems too hard at first, it is often due to a misinterpretation or misunderstanding of the instructions. Do take your time to do the examples of the games, as many times as you need, before really starting to play the game. Besides it is normal to experience difficulties at the beginning of your brain training. In our view, the satisfaction is greater when the effort needed to achieve a goal was important.
This is what differentiates our philosophy with a number of our competitors.
The best goals are the ones you set for yourself.
Do not forget that brain training, just like physical training, is a process which takes time and must be maintained. While it is useful to do an intensive program for 3 months, it is really doing the program regularly for several years that will give you the best results. To maintain interest, you not only need a wide range of activities but also continued challenges. HAPPYneuron has the most exercises on the market and will keep challenging you.
