Møre brain activity while meditating than during small talk


My wife and I both use Muse. When she started using Muse she immediately achieved a percentage of calmness of around 90%. I usually achieve around 40 to 50% of calmness.

We carried out a little experiment measuring our brain activity whilst meditating and during small talk. It turned out that my calmness and the number of birds received was actually much better during small talk with my eyes open than whilst meditating.

Is anyone familiar with this fenominom? I have been meditating with Muse for three months now.
