Breathe2Relax is an app designed to teach users to practice relaxing breathing techniques. The application provides a video demonstration of proper breathing practices as well as timed “cycles” for inhaling and exhaling, which can be adjusted to meet users’ unique breathing patterns. Additionally, the app features a selection of soothing music and backgrounds to accompany breathing cycles. Users are asked to log their stress level before and after completing a breathing cycle, and their answers are tracked on a graph for comparison and analysis over time. This application provides a simple, easy to use method of practicing relaxation techniques, and is recommended to all users ages 6+.

Breathe2Relax can help your child practice Focus, Self-Control and Self-Awareness during episodes of anxiety, tension, and stress.


Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

Proper breathing techniques for relieving symptoms of anxiety and stress require practice to perfect. Breathe2Relax tasks users with focusing deeply on elongated, smooth inhalation and exhalation, requiring them to concentrate heavily on their breathing. Learning to breathe from the diaphragm rather than the chest often requires adjustment from the users, who may initially find the technique unfamiliar or uncomfortable. The app serves as an aid to help users better focus on breathing, an essential component to achieving the desired result of relaxation. Breathe2Relax encourages users to maintain attention only on the present task of breathing, encouraging them to not become distracted with worries, anxiety, and other outside stressors.


Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.

Inhaling and exhaling for the specified lengths of time while using the proper technique demands a fair amount of Self-Control and practice. Breathing techniques can be beneficial to users who suffer from episodes of stress or anxiety attacks. Users who work to properly execute the suggested breathing techniques will more likely achieve control over their own body and thoughts and relieve symptoms associated with an anxiety attack or extreme tension.


Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.

Breathe2Relax not only requires users to practice Self-Control, but helps them achieve a calm state of mind to reflect more clearly on their own thoughts and actions. Executing the proper techniques can help users achieve a state of calmness by drawing their attention to the present state of their mind and body, rather than distant or unrealistic fears and worries. Taking time to slow down, breathe, and focus on the present can give users a new perspective of the symptoms created by anxiety , which can even help alleviate physical symptoms associated with stress.

Breathe2Relax also includes a feature which tracks users' state of stress before and after practicing breathing, creating a graph for easy analysis. Tracking this information gives users insight as to which breathing techniques are most helpful for them, and whether or not improvements to their stress and anxiety have been made over time. This understanding allows them to figure out the best methods for managing their own stress and anxiety.
