Muse Brain Sensing Headband Obliterates Stress Monsters in As Little As 3 Minutes a Day

To consider the world of wearable technology without fitness trackers and monitors today would be pretty much an understatement. It’s literally reimagined the entire concept of staying fit and monitoring your health status with fancy gadgets that can be worn either on the head or the wrist or even on your clothes. Though there still lies that tinge of doubt as to whether you’re looking silly wearing those trackers all around yourself, let’s face it – sometimes it’s about trying to look different and imbibe a new culture faster than others. In this case, the story is about inculcating a wearable technology in your everyday lifestyle before someone else in your locality does. This thirst has also led to an increase in the fitness conscious generation who now believe in working out everyday so that they get the right score on their Jawbone.

While most of the trackers out there are more targeted for the fitness enthusiasts for counting steps or burnt calories, there are some unique fitness concerned wearables as well. Take for example, Lumo Lift that is concerned in eliminating faulty body postures and does blend with your everyday style quotient. So is this interesting headband from Interaxon which after going through a lavish Indiegogo campaign towards the end of 2012, has literally brought in a breath of fresh air in the world of wearables by bringing interactive meditation for all. To make the most out of Muse, you don’t need to sit at a still position for hours staring at some dumb photograph on the wall or try to chant stuff you never figured out the meaning of and that’s why this is probably a stress buster not only in words but in action too.

Foster Your Brain With Positivity

As told by Ramana Maharshi, “When there are thoughts, it is distraction: when there are no thoughts, it is meditation.” With the psychologists of Harvard University deducing that  people spend 46.9 percent of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they’re doing, it’s difficult to combat stress and keep you mind calm most of the times. But the latter is definitely vital in order to keep distractions aside and develop focus and more attention in your life. By learning to keep one’s mind relaxed and devoid of any negativities, you’ll actually foster optimism in your way of living. As told on Muse’ website, “In a 2007 Harvard School of Health study that, for 20 years, looked at more than 6000 men and women aged 25 to 74, they found that emotional vitality — a sense of enthusiasm, of hopefulness, of engagement in life, and of the ability to face life’s stresses with emotional balance — appears to reduce the risk of heart disease.” This is the area where Muse fits in as a brain sensing headband which analyses your brain activity and helps you manage your stress levels accordingly.
