Emwave 2 Questions From Newbie
I've had this for a while now and haven't quite figured out how to optimally use it. Here are some questions I have that I hope you all can help me out with:
1. If I am also practicing meditation, should I do this on top of it as a separate session, or is it good enough as a substitute for traditional meditation?
I'm doing ok sitting with my eyes closed and breathing and what not. When I tried to do my normal meditation practice while hooked up to the Emwave I noticed that I wasn't going into coherence at all... AND my breathing rate was much shallower and faster than what the Emwave was telling me to do.
2. What type of breathing do you engage in when Emwaving? Belly breathing? Chest breathing? Belly + Chest breathing? I've noticed that some times when I belly breathe and I'm sitting up right, I can't get enough air in to breath at the same pace as the emwave, and it's only when I add in some chest breathing... or I start lying down/reclining that I can get enough air to synchronize my breathing with the emwave.
3. Do you stare at the machine or computer monitor the entire time? Or do you go eyes closed for a bit and just go with the flow?
