We’re surrounded by distractions. The Internet is 99% distraction (before you ask, yes, we’re the other 1%).

Oh, right. Mindfulness. Focus. Tuning out the white noise.
Muse can help you with that.
Muse is a really intelligent headband that pairs with a smartphone app to measure and analyze your level of focused attention.
It reads brain-wave activity the way a heart monitor takes your pulse and then compares the stats to a baseline report (full breakdown on how it works here).
Muse will guide you through a mindfulness exercise to get started and then evaluate your progress once a day (takes three minutes).
Over time, it will help you focus more deeply — at your desk, at your dinner table, everywhere else — as well as boost your mood and lower anxiety.
All that with a daily obligation of just a couple minutes.
A new and improved app was just released for Apple iOS, with Android on the way.
Order one now. Expect big changes.
And until then, we do recommend the bunny video.
