Headphones for Mindfulness
What does mindfulness mean to you?
For me, mindfulness means: being at peace with the present moment and noticing sensations, feelings, and thoughts as we allow them to pass. One of the best tools for practicing mindfulness is one we all have within us: our breath. Focusing on our breathing can reconnect us to our natural rhythm and help us feel connected to something bigger than ourselves.
While headphones aren’t usually associated with mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation, Lucid Audio’s AMPED headphones are unique because they give you access to the soft sounds around us and within us. Lucid Audio’s AMPED headphones work by amplifying the ambient sounds that are around us. These ambient sounds, like rustling of leaves, the purring of the cat, or even our own breath, can help deepen our practice of mindfulness. Feeling in-touch with our environments can help us feel mindful, and AMPED headphones do just that. This makes Lucid’s AMPED headphones the perfect headphones for mindfulness.
Amplify your Surroundings & Breath
The first time I tried on Lucid’s AMPED headphones, I noticed that the microphone picked up on my breath, delivering the sound of my breath back to my ears more clearly than ever before. Being able to hear the sound of my breath was soothing, and I kept the headphones on without even playing music.
I could suddenly hear sounds around the house that I hadn’t noticed before. I heard the chair creak as my dog jumped off of it. I heard someone across the house pouring a glass of water. And I heard my fingers tapping against my desk. Noticing all of these sounds helped me feel connected to my environment.
You’re in Control
One wonderful feature of the Lucid’s AMPED Headphones is that you have complete control over how much amplification you hear. You can easily turn the amplification off if you want to fully immerse yourself in a phone call or your favorite album. You have broad control over the degree of amplification you choose. You can hear as many or as few outside sounds as you’d like.
My personal recommendation is to spend a few moments everyday using your Lucid AMPED headphones solely to listen to ambient sounds. In the morning, you might consider sitting in a quiet place with your Lucid AMPED headphones and taking deep breaths to focus on the sound of your inhales and your exhales. For me, it is a truly beautiful experience to notice sounds that otherwise would have been hidden from me.
