Practicing meditation is an essential part of an abundantly healthy lifestyle.
"We don't meditate to get better at meditation, we meditate to get better at life."- Emily Fletcher. Meditation helps your body reduce a lifetime of stress, brings you into the present moment, and allows you some mindfulness, and sometimes some self-reflection.
In this episode, Ariel and I talk about meditation and the power of sleep. Good sleep helps every function of our body, so this makes it an essential part of a good lifestyle. Yes... good sleep helps our lifestyle!
We also chat about the MUSE S which I now have which helps you get to sleep and soon to help you stay asleep. I can say this device is quite amazing. More comfortable than my original MUSE. If you are wanting one of these devices, I'd highly recommend the MUSE S so you get a device that can grow with you from meditation to better sleep and to get all the future updates to help you stay asleep!
Here's a little about our guest Ariel:
Ariel Garten co-founded Muse® as an expression of her background in neuroscience, psychotherapy, and art, along with her dedication to bringing easy-to-use and accessible tools for well-being to the masses. Ariel is also the co-host of the “Untangle” podcast, where she interviews groundbreaking neuroscientists, psychologists and meditators to teach listeners about the brain, how it works and how to use it to its full potential.
Ariel studied neuroscience at the University of Toronto and worked in labs at the Krembil Neuroscience Centre, researching Parkinson’s disease and hippocampal neurogenesis. Post-graduation, she trained as a psychotherapist and had her own private practice as well a designing a clothing line that opened Toronto Fashion Week and has been sold across North America. It was her desire to understand the self from both scientific and artistic perspectives that led her to work with BCI technology in the lab of Dr. Steve Mann. There she recognized the opportunity to commercialize technology that would fundamentally disrupt multiple markets and soon co-founded Interaxon, makers of Muse®. The company debuted with the creation of “Bright Ideas,” Ontario’s feature showcase at the 2010 Winter Olympics, where visitors in Vancouver controlled the lights on the CN Tower, Niagara Falls, and the Canadian Parliament buildings with their minds from across the country.
Ariel and the Muse® headband have been featured in global media, including CNBC, CNET, CNN, Forbes, Popular Science, TechCrunch, the Wall Street Journal and VentureBeat, which credited Ariel for creating “the most important wearable of 2014.” In addition to her full-time position at Muse®, Ariel keynotes around the world on technology, mindfulness and entrepreneurship and supports and advises a variety of start-ups.
