The Morning Coffee Routine
The reason you'd run a Beta session is because good, strong beta brain waves (14-40 Hz) make us sharper, more focused and alert, which if you commute to work in Alberta you'll need every advantage. Winter driving can be scary, especially since many drivers, like me, don't change over to winter tires and those who have winter tires can be a bit over confident that their tires will save from disaster, commonly known as black ice. Even in summer, driving has many hazards so it's good to be alert and thinking clearly. Another big advantage of AVE over coffee is you run the session at home and leave your AVE there. Taking your coffee with you in the car probably won't net you a distracted driving ticket, but definitely increases your chance of an accident, especially if you spill hot coffee on yourself.
With AVE you'll be ready to face the day without the morning mental fog and since you don't need coffee you can reach for a glass of water to rehydrate your body. Having protein first thing in the morning controls your hunger cravings through out the day, increasing productivity and decreasing the need for sugary treats through out the day to stay awake. AVE is a great tool for better health, but it's only a tool. You still need to have a healthy lifestyle and positive outlook on life.
