What if our phones notified us when we were holding our breath or barely breathing at all?
What if our phones helped us reach peak performance - a state of "flow" - where we were engaged in our activity without being stressed?
What if the small moments in life (in traffic, in line, on the bus, at lunch) became opportunities to be rewarded and encouraged for being calm and present?
What if we used technology to increase awareness of the power of breath: for health, for focus, for inner and outer peace?
When a person becomes anxious, stressed, or agitated, their breathing pattern changes. It becomes shallow, fast, and even temporarily suspended.
If we can become aware of this & relax the tension in our muscles & release the breath from the "silent grip of stress", our emotional grip loosens immediately. The time it takes for us to recognize and release that tension is a measure of resilience.
Spire is changing the way the world breathes and improving resilience on a global scale. It tracks both physical activity (steps, sleep, sitting) as well as psychological (stress, focus, flow). It sends this data to your phone in real-time, where the Spire app guides, gives feedback, and encourages healthy, resilient behavior.
