Emerson- Economics major and hockey player at Dartmouth College.
N.O.W. has become an important tool to help bring balance to an extremely demanding schedule. With daily tests, deadlines, and coach expectations the tones are providing the moment of connection that makes all the difference in his day.
“Listening to N.O.W. allowed me to reflect on my daily activities including hockey, my classes, and the effort and strategies I was putting into those things. Certainly, these reflections were crucial in my ability to make changes, which helped me finish my term on a stronger note. The N.O.W. system allowed me six minutes every day to make sure I approached life with the right mindset, which translates into a lot more than just attitude.
“I found it useful to use on hockey game days. As an athlete, I find it essential to have a clear, stress free mentality on game day. N.O.W. was helpful in helping me achieve that mindset on game days.
“The tones were incredibly soothing. They were something that I would listen to not only for meditating purposes, but for studying or going about daily tasks of importance.”
“If I were not to continue to use the system, I would probably be putting myself at a disadvantage.”
“I have to tell you something exciting about the N.O.W. I’m a hard-core insomniac, and recently got “sober” from the Xanax I’ve been taking for years to fall asleep. What I do is read for as long as it takes to get sleepy, but last night it was 1AM and I was still wide awake. I brought the system into bed with me. Those blue lights are an amazing part of the nighttime experience! I didn’t necessarily feel sleepier, but as I stretched out under the covers, I was in such a graceful frame of mind that sleep settled over me the way it’s supposed to do, such as when parents tuck you in and say, “Go to sleep now.”
Nancy- Director of MV Chamber of Commerce
Nancy is the perfect example of how the tones can easily be used at work to create an immense difference in productivity. She explains that when she is fatigued in the mid-afternoon and hitting a wall with whatever creatively she is trying to focus on or rallying staff, N.O.W. is what helps her to step back and make time and space.
“It is helping me to transform how I look at my day.
“In the middle of the day I shut my office door, sit at my desk with the tones in my hands, and just let them work their magic.
“I didn’t think there was something that could take the place of the bakery next door!
“It’s more what I need at that time in the afternoon when I’m fatigued and wanting to reach for a cookie or coffee. It immediately clears my mind and straightens my spine. It’s like magic!”
Arlene- A visual artist who suffered a recent medical trauma. N.O.W. became an important touchstone in her recovery. Listening while in the hospital the tones created a familiar, safe feeling that carried into her recovery at home. The feeling of familiarity and safety makes it easier for her to fall asleep while listening, and to receive the rest her body needs.
“I look forward to listening at night. I often fall to sleep before the tones have even finished playing.
“I would ask for the tones often while I was very ill in the hospital. The sound and vibrations felt familiar, safe, and comforting. They really just calmed my body down and became part of my healing.”
“I couldn’t be a happier customer. I always thought, like many people, that meditation was not something that would work for me. But after reading scientific studies of its positive effects, I decided to give it a try. N.O.W. has incorporated so beautifully into my (meditation) routine. First thing in the morning, before checking any notifications on the phone, I soothe myself with the sweet sounds of N.O.W., trying to get my focus on the sounds only, trying not to think about future plans, or past concerns. I love how the sounds play randomly, having a different experience each time, and how sometimes the notes create vibrations that resonate, quite literally, inside my brain. I am certain that using N.O.W. once or twice a day will allow me to focus more on the present, with the benefits of having productive work days and happy moments with my loved ones (enjoying each moment more by being “present”). I can now see how unhealthy it is to be constantly concerned (too much focus on the future) about things that are out of our present control.
Thank you so much for this amazing product. I hope many others find it as useful as I do.”
