Do you frequently find yourself succumbing to stress caused by your job or family? Is your love life often put on hold because you need to manage that stress? Whether you’re a busy bee with no time to relax or you’re living a laid-back lifestyle and just want to better tune into your mind, body, and spirit, the Muse: the brain sensing headband from Gaiam is for you. It’s constructed to help reduce the stress you experience by giving you real-time feedback on how well you are focusing, thus improving your productivity and allowing you to stop feeling like your plate is too full.

Similar to the way a heart monitor can sense your heart’s activity from the outside of your body, Muse can monitor the electrical impulses from your brain that are emitted while thinking, sleeping, and relaxing. The headband then plays noises to you that reflect the state of  your mind: The sounds will be peaceful and calm if you’re quiet and focused and become louder and more chaotic as your mind wanders. You are then given feedback via your smartphone or tablet to hep you track your improvement. For more details on the science behind Muse, you can visit meetmuse.com.
