Need to De-Stress? What About Melomind?

When I have a crazy day and need to slowly decompress, I turn to an iTunes playlist I created called “Calm Down.” It’s loaded with chillax music from bands like Sigur Ros, Cowboy Junkies and a bunch of tracks from the Buddha Bar CDs. Most of the time it works, but there are some days when I need something, you know, extra strength.

Maybe I need Melomind.  Gizmag describes it this way:

The emergence of consumer electroencephalography (EEG) devices is giving us new ways to monitor and train our brains. One such device is the Melomind, which promises to help users better manage stress. To do so, it delivers 15-minute sessions of specially designed music.

It looks geeky, but this isn’t the kind of thing you do in public. I’d be willing to give it a shot. It might even bring down my Scotch expenditures.
