Meditation can help us ground ourselves, relieve stress and reduce anxiety. This personal meditation device and accompanying app will help guide the user through a meditation practice by measuring brain signals and translating them into sounds of the wind. When the mind is calm, the user hears calm breezes; when the mind is active, the wind will pick up and sound stormy. Muse: The Brain Sensing Headband, $300; bestbuy.ca; choosemuse.com
