What is Muse?
Muse is a brain sensing headband that makes meditation easier. Meditation has been proven to reduce stress and increase focus, but it can be hard to know if you’re doing it right. Muse provides you with real-time audio feedback on what’s happening in your brain when you meditate, letting you know when your mind wanders and teaching you to regain focus. Think of Muse as you personal guide to meditation as you journey toward a calmer and more present self.
Getting Mindfully Fit: Syncing and Calibrating
The headband syncs to the Muse app on your mobile device via bluetooth. The app takes you through a tutorial to help you adjust the fit of the headband to ensure it’s reading your brain signals correctly. Before each meditation session, the Muse takes a snapshop of your brain in a natural state. This step is called calibration.
Your first ten sessions with Muse include awesome tips and guidance for finding a meditation practice that works for you! Once your meditation session begins, Muse gives you audio feedback about your meditation in real time by translating your brain signals into the sounds of wind. When your mind is calm and settled, you hear calm and settled winds. When your mind is active the winds will pick up and blow. You might even hear some birds chirping! The app offers different soundscapes as well, so have fun and explore!
Track Your Progress
After each session, Muse will show you how your brain did from moment to moment through simple, easy to understand graphs and charts. View your whole session at once, find out the amount of time you remained calm during a session and get helpful tips on how to improve future scores.
