Stillness Buddy creates very short on-screen breaks, which encourage 'moments of stillness' and 'mindfulness pauses' at regular intervals during the day.
Users decide on the duration and frequency of their breaks to suit their preferences and schedule. In addition, users can customise the exercises, sounds and messages to be displayed during the day.
"It is ideal for people who are often tense and stressed, working for
long periods without taking a moment of rest," said Stillness Buddy creator
"Stillness Buddy helps them to work in a more relaxed way. It is like having a friend that every now and then gently reminds you to stop for a moment, breathe, centre yourself again and then continue."
The latest, Stress Reduction version of Stillness Buddy contains several carefully designed exercises, based on mindfulness and relaxation principles. Examples include:
- Deep breathing - Relaxing various parts of the body through progressive relaxation - Quieting the mind through simple mindfulness practices, such as just listening - Gentle stretching - Using the imagination to de-stress - Scanning the sensations in the body
"Our trials have shown users work more productively as they are able to focus on the important things, be more alert, and ultimately more efficient."
