Hot Gift Ideas For Relaxation and Anxiety Relief
This past year I have become a big fan of puzzles. Whenever I am stressed or struggling with concentration I would take a few minutes to work on a jigsaw puzzle. This has become a form of meditation for me. It helps clear my mind and forgot what I was originally stressing about. The best part of this activity is when you are done you can hang up your completed work. Amazon has some good options, however, if jigsaw puzzles are not your thing you can try coloring or other puzzle books including Suduko or crossword puzzles as another option.

It features sounds of a beach or rainforest and will measure whether your mind is calm or active, and translate that data into session reviews.
