Why meditate with Muse?

brainTraining_benefit_1

It motivates you to change your brain

Muse is the first tool in the world that can give you accurate, real-time feedback on what’s happening in your brain while you meditate. It provides motivational challenges and rewards to encourage you to build a regular practice.

It improves how you respond to stress

In the short-term, meditation has been shown to trigger the natural relaxation response – a state of deep rest that changes the physiological and emotional responses to stress. Your metabolism decreases and your heartbeat slows. The muscles relax, breathing becomes slower, and your blood pressure decreases.

Extended use can have amazing and lasting results

Meditation has been scientifically shown to reduce symptoms associated with stress, depression and anxiety. Research has documented other benefits, like increased grey matter density, reduced thinning of the prefrontal cortex, decreasing amygdala activity (associated with stress response), and increased resilience – basically, an overall beneficial change of the brain’s structure and function.

It is designed to help you form the habit

Research has shown using an app and starting with 3-5 minutes can dramatically help you build a meditation practice. Muse starts you with 3 minute sessions and rewards you for your achievements, making sure it’s easy and motivating to train with Muse (What are people saying?).
