3) Roga Life
What: Developed by Dr. Alison Smith, Roga Life is a wearable that sits on your ears like headphones and is used about 20 minutes a day to naturally train your brain to be calmer and less impacted by stressors. It works by sending a very gentle electrical vibration that massages your brain’s flight-or-flight center and encourages it to relax. The brain runs on electrical signals, so inputting this positive signal is like petting a cat and then it starts purring.
Dr. Smith is a leading neuroscientist who’s spent years studying optimal brain function, and who suffered from severe stress and burnout after dealing with a chronic illness. She founded Roga to help others combat stress, anxiety and burnout by using the brain’s own electrical signals to calm itself down.
