Are you an athlete who uses music to get into the zone? You might want to check out Alphabeats

Just about everyone uses music to get their game face on. You want to be pumped for your game/physical activity but not too much. The goal is to get your mind into the zone, that flow where everything happens without too much conscious thought. But getting into that brain state can be hard.

Enter Alphabeats, a new started up for athletes that says it can use music to “train your brain to control alpha waves and enter a flow state.” Another way of putting it is “music-based mental training” that helps with managing stress and creating an ability to focus on the task at hand.

This is NOT an app. Instead, it’s a subscription service that will send you an “EEG headband” that you’re supposed to wear while you’re training. It will also play music that will change according to your alpha brainwaves. With a little practice and attention, Alphabeats says flow will come.
