Brainwaves app

Brainwaves, an app for your phone or tablet boasts 35 binaural programs that combine brain waves with ambient music, nature sounds or your own iTunes music selections. Binaural means using both ears so the app works better with earphones.

You can program 5 minute to 8 hour sessions choosing themes like relaxation, deep sleep, energy, meditation and memory enhancement. The app actually makes use of delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma waves to enhance the experience.

At $4.99, this app is affordable and worth a try if you need stress relief or want to add more meditation and rest periods to your daily life.

Please read any health warnings before using this app. You can always resort to good old fashioned meditation. Or play your own nature sounds and music while you quiet your mind and breathe. Still, this app might be just the thing to encourage calm, sleep or concentration.

Thanks to Amy Lechelt Basta for the recommendation of Brainwaves. The app definitely chilled me down after my dog got loose and led me on a stressful chase. Om!
