This headband reads your brain waves in real-time and allows you to control your thoughts by focusing on your breathing. Its meditation taken to a new level.
This technology uses advanced signal processing to interpret your mental activity and guide you through meditation by using weather sounds. You can select the type of weather you’d like to hear, wind in the desert, rain in the forest or waves on the beach.
There are several benefits to meditating and it has been medically proven to reduce stress and calm anxiety. As a frequent meditator myself, I can attest to these benefits.
Once you receive your headband you download the free app (muse), turn the power on your headband and it will automatically sync to your phone through your Bluetooth settings, it’s as simple as that. You can also subscribe to additional meditations monthly or yearly so that you never get bored with the same sessions.

2. Weighted Blanket
This home therapy blanket is said to help with anxiety relief by helping calm a restless body, reduce feelings of anxiety, and improve sleep troubles. It has similar benefits to deep pressure therapy.
Young children or anyone weighing under 50lbs should not use the weighted blankets for safety reasons.
The weight of these blankets helps to increase the level of your serotonin which then converts to melatonin, the hormone that helps regulate your sleep. You can get to sleep faster and experience a more quality rest so you’re ready to take on the day when morning rises.
Replace your comforter with the HomeSmart Weighted Blanket.
A premium weighted blanket that is truly designed to fit your bed and release anxiety with its similar benefits as a deep pressure treatment.
When deciding which weighted blanket is best suited for you there are a few considerations that should be taken.
- decide the size of your blanket
- then decide what weight you wish for your blanket
Most research I have done indicates that the weight should be 10% of your body weight, however, in saying that considerations should also be taken into account based on the size fo your bed.
The weighted blanket is a premium quality product that can be dressed up by purchasing a luxurious duvet cover for it.
This product on Amazon is rated 4.5/5.
