Quite happy with it, I’ve used it less and less over the last 8 months as it can take up to 5 minutes before the app connects on android (the phone connects instantly) .
When it just arrived I have been using it once a day for 3 weeks straight, after that I started skipping some days, up to 2 months in and only used it when I felt it could be beneficial.
I expected to see some degradation over time as there have sometimes 2 weeks between sessions, but I kept practicing to try to get to the same level while travelling on the bus etc. without the headset.
I’m very aware if I have a good or bad day and this will also show when using the muse, if there is a sporadic day that I don’t have the feeling that I can get to a satisfying level on my own I make sure to make some time to muse and have almost instant effect.
For 90% of the days I can get to a satisfying level and also this shows on the muse, I got up to 98% calm without much efforts.
Good to know is that I’ve also been using muse quite a bit with other apps, made some apps myself and am quite active in biohacking where I log activity through museLAB so having instant control is quite beneficial for testing time and yes SDK works quite nicely if you do some studying
If you don’t get to a satisfying point with just muse and breathing techniques, I could advise to have a look at different types of meditation.
For example; for me sitting perfectly still generates more brain activity than gently stretching my arms and feeling around in an empty void, the muse works quite stable even with gentle back stretches, but you have to learn till what point you can go.
