Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband

Muse The Brain Sensing Headband

Ever wonder what’s really happening in your brain when you try to tune out the world? Get accurate, real-time feedback on your brain activity during meditation with Muse, the Brain Sensing Headband, which is currently 20 percent off on Amazon. This smart device is the first of its kind to use the same brain-sensing technology that doctors and scientists employ to detect your brain signals.

Muse acts as your personal meditation assistant, helping you to positive results in as little as three minutes per day. Personalized tracking, motivational challenges, and rewards encourage you to build a more regular and effective meditation practice. The device trains your brain to relax into meditation by playing peaceful weather sounds when you’re calm and more intense weather sounds when your mind begins to wander, guiding your focus back to a calm state.

Your brain is constantly generating electrical signals when you’re thinking, sleeping or even relaxing, and Muse detects these signals from outside your head using seven finely calibrated sensors. After each session, you can review your data, set goals, and build a more rewarding meditation experience.

Muse normally retails for $249, but right now you can score one on for $200 on Amazon, providing a $49 (20 percent) savings.
