27. Muse Meditation Headband
Meditation is one of the most effective ways to combat stress. But meditation can be hard and often times quite boring especially when you have no idea if you are doing it right. This is where Muse comes in.
Muse is a headband (and phone App) that optimizes your meditation practice by helping you stay relaxed and focused. Plus, Muse gives you real time feedback and interesting data that will keep you motivated.
Muse uses EEG (also known as Neuro-feedback) to track and measure your brain’s brainwave signals (along with heart rate, breathing, and body movements) as you meditate so you know at what times you are relaxed/focused and when you are not.
Muse also actively changes the meditation music in real time based on these signals. For example, when your mind is calm and settled, you will hear calm music, but if your mind becomes chatty, the music changes to reflect this change so you know you need to relax and bring your focus back to your breath.
