Free from the Confusion about What Meditation Feels Like,
as You Can See It.

Meditation is not just a spiritual experience. Technology can make it visible, and science can explain what meditation does to your brain and body.

What Happens to Your Brain When You Meditate?

Brainwaves, or neural oscillations, are rhythmic or repetitive patterns of neural activity in the central nervous system, which can be revealed in specific frequency bands: alpha, delta, theta, beta and gamma. When your mind is in different states, the ratio of each brainwaves changes.

Brainwave Rhythm during Work

Beta wave is dominant when you are focused and alert.

Brainwave Rhythm during Meditation

After you close your eyes and start slow and deep breathing, the alpha wave goes up, and as you go deep into meditation, the theta wave increases.

What Happens to Your Heart Rate When You Have Resonant Breathing?

Heart rate is closely related to the physical state. When you practice meditation in different ways, the heart rate change may increase, decrease or stay smooth. In general, the change in heart rate is disordered. But when you do resonant breathing, you'll see heart rate changes in a certain periodic rhythm, which helps the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems coordinate with each other.

HR Change during Work

In general, the change in heart rate is disordered when you breathe naturally.

Periodical HR Change during Resonant Breathing

Heart rate rises when you breathe in and goes down when breathing out. If you keep resonant breathing, the heart rate changes rhythmically.

How do I Know Whether I’m Dozy or Entering into the Meditative State?

When you step into the sleep stages, your heart rate decreases gradually. While if you enter into the flow state, your heart rate won’t have an apparent drop-off trend. For example, the chart shows the user was much more relaxed and almost fell asleep between 9 and 15 minutes when she did a body-scan session before sleep. Suddenly she woke up and took several deep breaths to help her stay awake.

How to Interpret Session Reports?

There is no "good" meditations or "bad" ones.

Everyone's brainwave is unique. Find your baseline and see how meditation changes your brainwaves. Someone gets the alpha wave beyond beta after he/she closes his/her eyes and starts deep breathing. But someone gets the alpha wave and beta wave entwined with each other. Try some meditation techniques and see what makes difference.

Pay more attention to the trend instead of value.

Does your graph show an increasing trend? Or it's up and down most of the time? It's totally normal that our minds wonder even if we try hard to be focused. Mindfulness training can help you concentrate and be aware of your mind wandering. If your Attention value keeps increasing, congratulations, you are doing quite well. By practicing, you can keep it stable and increase the average.

Be aware of what happening during meditation.

By practicing meditation, you would be more aware of being. Sometimes you may be absent and can't recall what happens. The reports may help you remember those moments and realize how long they last. By practicing, I'm sure you could improve the ability of awareness that you notice what is going on in your head and bring your focus back to the present.

Keep A Closer Eye on Your Long-term Wellness

Long-term Habit Building

Small daily goals, like the ten-minute daily meditation, are good for keeping habits, while it’s also important to leave an eye on habit building in the long term. That is why looking at full 12-month trends can be so insightful.

Long-term Health Trend

Suppose you keep practicing for over a month. In that case, the Trend is a new way to highlight significant changes intelligently and surfaces the information in a way that’s easy to understand, especially when some metrics are less responsive, like HRV.
