CAN'T GET STARTED ON TASKS (KIDS)

GETTING STARTED WITH BLAST

THE STRESS RESPONSE

Kids who struggle getting started on tasks may have too much mental chatter or feel overwhelmed due to stress. For many, this may be struggling to get started on homework, chores, or personal hygiene care. Caregivers can provide BLAST as a helpful tool in getting kids started on important tasks.  

HOW BLAST HELPS

TouchPoint Solution’s wearable devices are embedded with patented BLAST (bi-lateral alternating stimulation tactile) technology. BLAST is scientifically proven to alter the body’s “fight or flight” response caused by stress. The wearables emit alternating vibrations that disengage your standard stress response (sympathetic nervous system), and shift you into the calm, logical side of your brain (parasympathetic nervous system). 

THE LONGTERM BENEFITS

When using BLAST™ consistently to overcome procrastination, overtime you may not need them in certain situations as the task may become less stressful because of BLAST™. One of the ways BLAST works is by creating new neural pathways that help modify the memories that trigger our stress response. With continued use of BLAST™, these new neural pathways can build overtime, progressively reducing the release of stress related hormones that can cause procrastination.  

Excess levels of cortisol may be released as your body’s response to stress that may result in task avoidance. A triple blind placebo-controlled trial with athletes showed TouchPoints™ stabilized cortisol levels during stressful events and reduced the level of stress. (Leal-Junior, E. C., Casalechi, H. L., Machado, C. dos, Serin, A., Hageman, N. S., & Johnson, D. S., 2019)
