Science fiction may seem pop in mind, but it’s very real and highly supported by several research institutes. The university of Ontario “Institute of Technology”, and the university of Toronto are 2 among them and have shown favorable results using Muse to train your brain. Focus and attention improvements along with a sense of relaxation and overall happiness are claimed results from using this wearable tech.
What is Muse?
Based on clinical EEG “Electroencephalography”, Muse uses 7 sensors which detect and measure brain activity. The app “Calm” uses this data to guide you through a brain training process. Muse responds to signals from your brain and notifies when your distracted. The app then helps exercise your brain with focused attention training which will help you regain attention easier and faster.
- Muse hardware cost $299
- You can download Calm free on either Android or Apple devices.
- Muse is tested and certified in accordance with Canadian, USA and European regulatory standards (FCC, UL, CE).
Why Does Muse Help Train Your Brain?
I will endorse this myself about the issues that come of getting distracted. A distracted mind is a frustrated mind and obviously it’s hard to be happy while distracted all the time. With distraction comes difficulty learning and difficulty improving. Muse aims to exercise this weak area, and for many people will improve overall lifestyle.
It motivates you to change your brain
- Uses a points system with goals and challenges.
- Progress and unlock bonuses and achievements.
- See your results with charts/graphs.
- Long term records show how your progressing.
It can improve overall emotional state
- Improving attention helps alleviate the frustrations that lead to anger.
- Becoming more aware and in control will result.
- A state of awareness and self control decreases stress.
- Become self aware is key to emotional intelligence.
Would I Use Wearable Tech Such As Muse?
Yes. As a victim of distraction, and a survivor to tell it all, I will certainly use Muse to help improve myself. Using medical grade technology and Bluetooth which is weaker than a cellphone signal by a fraction of 100 makes it safe enough for me. Supported by several universities and receiving great feedback makes this hard to look away from.
I also write a blog for Successful Lifestyle Secrets and I truly understand the benefits of focus exercising. We have a lot to learn about how our brain works, but the connections between our thoughts and emotions are undeniable. Improving focus and attention would improve much more than intelligence.
By exercising our focus and attention, it will improve our overall positive perspectives.
