As we all know, the holiday shopping season, even the end of the year, in general, can be one of the most stressful times of the year. Whether it’s shopping for our kids, our significant others or even a Gift Exchange at work, a lot of thought, planning and energy goes into gift buying – and the stress doesn’t end there! After holiday shopping comes the pressure of hosting parties, planning family gatherings and cooking fancy dinners, creating another layer of anxiety.
Meditation has been scientifically shown to reduce symptoms associated with stress and anxiety, so we found a PERFECT gift this season, Muse: the brain sensing headband.
Muse is a lightweight headband with brain wave-sensing technology and an accompanying meditation app that helps novices learn to meditate and experienced meditators get the most out of their practice.
Using nature sounds as cues, the device provides users with gentle, real-time feedback on what’s happening in your brain when you meditate, letting you know when your mind wanders and helping you to become more relaxed, calm and focused. Price – $249.95.
