As featured in The Huffington Post, Lifehacker, and the Harvard Medical School's Harvard Health Newsletter, this iPhone and iPad app features clinically proven therapeutic breathing exercises that are designed to decrease your heart rate, and with daily use can help manage high blood pressure.
I’ve come across countless apps that are aimed at helping people to de-stress and relax, as well as meditative aids and sleep aids. The genre as a whole seems to be rather hit and miss, with many developers simply throwing together a bunch of white noise and calling it a “scientifically proven” relaxation aid.
Breathing Zone definitely appears to be a deviation from this rather irritating trend, in that it offers some truly effective content which is based on actual science as recognized by many reputable bodies. This app is well worth checking out if you’re looking for a way of reducing stress in your daily life.
This is great because the last thing you want is to use a relaxation app that ends up making you want to pull your hair out in frustration because the interface or general layout are so badly designed. This definitely isn’t an issue with Breathing Zone.
The breathing exercises all come accompanied by voice instructions that are clear and concise, and incredibly easy to follow. This means that you can simply sit back, relax, and allow the app to work its magic.
Take a Chill Pill
In addition to the voice instructions, there is also an animated breathing guide for the more visual learners amongst you, and you’ll find a total of five guide sounds to provide a bit of variety from time to time.
