Lifestyle Intelligence (LQ) - The new language of Health & Wellness.
Lifestyle Intelligence (LQ) is a unique psycho-educational approach that guides users along a clear pathway toward building & maintaining a positive ecosystem for a healthy lifestyle, with a focus on eating, sleeping, and moving.
The LQ app brings “Daily Focus” to your journey, helping you to enhance sensory awareness and build a transformative body of knowledge. The app is designed to deliver Dr. Lloyd Glauberman’s 3-minute-long audio tracks seven days a week, at your preferred times. These segments are both instructional and motivational, and they work to stimulate your awareness of Lifestyle Intelligence (LQ). Since the effects of listening compound over time, this modest, yet steady commitment pays off in the form of meaningful and sustainable change. Consistency is important, but even if you miss a day here and there, you can simply pick up right where you left off. Each Daily Focus track unlocks the wisdom of your natural rhythms and generates momentum toward macro-level changes in lifestyle. Using over-ear headphones is highly recommended to facilitate total immersion.
Each Daily Focus track supports steady progress toward balanced, healthy living. These tracks work with your brain’s innate timing mechanisms to hone the core skills of Lifestyle Intelligence – namely, those involved with sleeping, eating, and moving. They are designed to be short enough to keep your full, undivided attention, but also long enough for you to gain some truly valuable insights. When you hold space for this daily sensory awareness pause, you will discover the power to reprogram your own behavior and improve your quality of life. With each new track, users acquire skills and knowledge that support mutually reinforcing changes in sleep, nutrition, and exercise. Your customized Daily Focus regimen will help you to gradually bring greater vitality and balance to your lifestyle ecosystem, where learning and growth are rooted in the strong and nurturing ground of Lifestyle Intelligence.
Your Daily Focus
The LQ Lexicon
A language for healthy living
Auditory Marking Device
A musical tone used to support the learning process by emphasizing the importance of what was just heard on a daily focus track.
The brain’s Central Intelligence Agency that was hardwired in at birth and monitors the macro elements of LQ.
The physical and psychological symptoms that occur as a consequence of not working out. This includes lower back pain, moodiness, and insomnia.
The state that bridges waking and sleep and offers a unique window of opportunity for learning.
Jiggling the data
The mental gymnastics of rationalizing frequently occurring poor lifestyle choices.
The ecosystem of eating, sleeping and moving.
The secondary components of Lifestyle Intelligence that are essential to healthy living. They are as follows:
The everyday non-exercise physical patterns that are essential for brain/body health.
- Micro-caloric burn
The small amount of calories burned during everyday movement that helps maintain a healthy weight.
- Micro-caloric burn
Micro amounts of sleep (once or twice per week) have been shown to help prevent heart attacks and strokes.
The cognitive process that keeps track of the sensory changes in experience as well as the emotional and behavioral patterns that are central to healthy and productive living.
The ability to process and utilize auditory information not noticed by the conscious mind. The HPP programs utilize this pathway to generate change.
The behavioral patterns that are passed on from parent to child as a combination of unconscious modeling and repetition.
Regression to the mean
The statistical concept that reflects the tendency for everything to drift back to its average. In the case of LQ, this means the behavioral patterns that we typically display.
Secondary Sensory Experience
The use of our internal visualization skills and knowledge to generate feedback when ordinary sensory feedback is not sensitive enough to perceive that something unhealthy is happening.
A state of consciousness that is completely tuned into all the internal sensory channels so that the right choices are made at the right times during the course of each day.
Not getting the necessary sleep and easily identified by the need to use an alarm to awaken.
Timing is everything
Our bodies and brains are ruled by circadian rhythms.
Failure to understand how timing is the structure of every part of our lives results in dysfunctional living.
Put on your headphones! The LQ app provides users with full access to Dr. Glauberman’s Hypno-Peripheral Processing (HPP) audio programs. These longer form audio tracks represent the perfect complement to the Daily Focus tracks. The HPP programming simultaneously appeals to our need for relaxation, our love of storytelling, and our ability to process information at the edges of awareness by stimulating and integrating multiple layers of consciousness. As you listen to the HPP library, you will experience the incredible power that your brain possesses and engage with newly tapped capabilities for smarter living. The HPP library will take your Lifestyle Intelligence (LQ) to the next level. Each installment requires about 25 minutes of listening, best done in a comfortable setting and using over-ear headphones for maximum immersion.
The efficacy of this concept has been supported by research and has been praised in publications such as the New York Times and Forbes. The HPP and Daily Focus tracks present two distinct learning strategies that work synergistically to enhance and expedite the development of your Lifestyle Intelligence (LQ). Each HPP track subtly and gently generates the twilight state, which comes about in between the states of being awake and asleep. This highly receptive state of consciousness opens additional learning channels, all while maintaining a calm and tranquil state of mind. When you are listening, you already know what you need to hear on some level. The LQ app helps you to locate it, process it, and put it into action. The HPP programs have been developed to help you accomplish meaningful changes in how you think, feel, and act.
Each HPP track begins with a single narrative, which eventually splits into two simultaneous stories, with each one being played into only one ear. As might be expected, your conscious mind eventually drifts off into a deeply relaxed state, which is ideal for processing the suggestions that are contained within the dual stories. Since you already know what your needs are, along with the changes that you want to make, you automatically select those messages that are the most important for you. These changes then appear effortlessly and spontaneously throughout the flow of your daily life: at the right times, in the right places, and with the right people.
