Get to Know: The Meditation Motivation that Muse Inspires
There’s a method to meditation, with experts who can find their centers and turn any minute into a fresh start. Beginners of this practice might find it intimidating, and even regular meditators might find themselves craving more– so we chatted with the Muse team about how to maximize your meditation methodology.
What is the motivation to meditate?
Realize and recognize that physical health and mental health are deeply intertwined. By paying attention to and investing in your mental and spiritual health, you will experience immense payoffs when I it comes to your physical health and wellness.
So it improves your physical well-being.
That’s just one benefit. People are often searching for ways to find time for themselves, or to create balance in a hectic schedule. Some may have tried or considered trying mediation to help solve those issues, but they found it difficult to begin or maintain a meditation practice. Muse makes meditation accessible to everyone, allowing you to take a breath and focus on bettering your life.
Meditation is so abstract, how do you make it accessible?
Muse is a brain-sensing headband and app that makes meditation easier by answering the question, ‘Am I doing this right?” The system provides real-time audio feedback on your meditative state. It helps you calm your mind and motivates you to build a practice that will improve your daily life through the benefits of meditation.
Isn’t that distracting for people trying to meditate?
It’s not like other live-coaching apps. Muse’s 7 finely calibrated sensors – 2 on the forehead, 2 behind the ears, plus 3 reference sensors – detect and measure the activity of your brain. When you’re calm, you’ll hear the sound of peaceful weather. If Muse senses your mind wandering, you’ll hear the weather sounds get stronger, gently guiding you back to calm. We like to say Muse lets you hear your own mind as you meditate.
Actually, that sounds very Zen. Any parting words of wisdom or advice for our followers?
Take time for yourself each day to be completely free of distractions. Clear your mind, and be in the present.
