One of the benefits of the new Muse headband are the multiple sensors that it includes:
Heart (PPG + Pulse Oximetry)
Breath (PPG + Gyroscope)
Recently, I learned an important piece of feedback which is critical to understand your mind/brain/body connection.
There’s a difference between: Relaxed vs. Calm.
From this session, you can see that while my body (Heart Rate and Gyro/PPG) indicate a relaxed physical state, the brain/EEG shows a good amount of activity.
I would attribute this to a ACTIVE mind with constantly bringing up PAST and FUTURE thinking. It indicates a lack of synchronization with BREATHING.
So a Mismatch between Mind and Body which the breath provides the portal.
