Well, with September being National Yoga Month, it seems appropriate that this month’s technology app would be around stress.
Stress Check by Azumio Inc.
I’ve had this app for quite a while now, although I don’t use it too often. And I am sure that I do not use it to its full capacity…especially after reading about it to write this blog.
Every now and then I’ll open it up and measure my stress. I must manage my stress well and/or lead a fairly low-stress life because it has always told me my stress level is low. (Maybe I should try it when I know I am in a state of high stress and see what it tells me.)
It is easy to use. It does take a few minutes to do the check. So, if for no other reason than it forces you to stop what you are doing, sit still for a couple minutes, and breath, that right there is a huge win!
Go ahead, download and use it. Use it often. Using it often should help your stress levels to decrease with the forced relaxation. Come to think of it, I am going to use it more often! Ideally, you’ll get some good information from using it too.
