Make Meditation Easier With This Gadget And These 5 Amazing Apps

What if I told you that now you can track your brain’s senses and measure its signals in order to get into a meditative state? All thanks to Muse: the brain sensing headband!

Muse, the ‘brain fitness tool’ comes with seven sensors: two on the forehead, two behind the ears and three reference sensors that detect the activities of your mind.

Is Muse safe? Yes! The makers point out that it has been tested and certified by Canadian, USA and European regulatory standards (FCC, UL, CE).

How does it work? You just connect the band to an app on your phone via Bluetooth and put it on, it tunes itself to your brain and takes a snapshot of it in its active state. This is used as a reference to understand your brain signals.

It senses your mental state and functions accordingly with sounds that will ensure you don’t steer away from your calm state. It tracks your progress and motivates you to improve and eventually helps achieve a more focused and composed mind.

And guess what? It is now available at Amazon.com.

Below are some easily downloadable apps from Play Store or App Store that will help you while meditating:

  1. Sleep Easily by Shazzie: This app helps you relax your body and mind through a guided meditation, written and read by author Shazzie. Her 26-minute recording includes sounds and music, and specifically designed combinations of healing frequencies that put you into a deep, meditative sleep.
  2. Headspace: All you need to do is dedicate 10 minutes of your day to Headspace, and it will ‘train your mind’ and teach you everything about meditation. The app tracks your progress and allow you to encourage your friends through a buddy system, and keeps sending your reminders to continue. Emma Watson says, “it’s kind of genius.”
  3. The Mindfulness App: Guided and silent meditations that range from three to 30 minutes, and a unique library of some of the world’s best teachers, this app will help you on your personal journey to awakening.
  4. Buddhify: This app has a meditative session for every mood, with 15 different customized recordings for various parts of your day, whether you’re travelling, working or going to sleep.
  5. Room to Breathe Meditation: It helps you concentrate on your breathing, which is key to switching off the disturbing mental activities. The 15-minute guided breathing meditation has step-by-step instructions to help you focus on your breath and reduce weary thoughts.

Thank me later for revealing the secret to meditate easily!

Go! And make your life more peaceful and calm.
