How Do I Use It?

MyCalmBeat improves your calmness through slow breathing. Use the monitor to calculate your personal best breathing rate where you are calmest, and then train by breathing at that rate.

For Employers

MyCalmBeat is a simple and effective way to help your employees deal with stress, develop better focus and build resilience – all through personalized breathing.

Employers can provide individual MyCalmBeat monitors for their employees and/or set up kiosks that allow employees to calculate their personal best breathing rates on-site.

How it works

The MyCalmBeat monitor and software calculates your personal best breathing rate where you are most calm, and then provides tools to help you train by breathing at that rate.

MyCalmBeat works by increasing your heart rate variability through slow breathing. MyCalmBeat first calculates your personal best breathing rate where you are most calm, and then gives you tools to train by breathing at that rate.

Your personal best breathing rate is unique to you and does not change. It reflects the physical properties of your cardiovascular system.

When to use MyCalmBeat

After you calculate your personal best breathing rate using the MyCalmBeat Monitor, you can train on the web or on the go via your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, BlackBerry or Android.

We recommend training every day for about 10 minutes. But just like any exercise, the more you do it the bigger the benefit. Consistent daily training will help you strengthen the calm responses in your body that help you manage stress.

You can also use MyCalmBeat just before a stressful event or an important presentation. MyCalmBeat can also be beneficial when used before sleep or during periods of pain.

The science of MyCalmBeat

While breathing at your personal best breathing rate, your heart rate curve becomes more variable (in green) and follows a symmetrical pattern. In this state, you are most calm.

Low heart rate variability has been connected to worry, negative feelings, pain, and stresses at work [1-5]. High heart rate variability enables you to recover more easily from stress, manage your pain [5], and boost your positive feelings and sense of wellbeing [2]. High heart rate variability is also beneficial to our ability to focus and think clearly [6].

The most effective way to increase your heart rate variability is to calculate the one best breathing rate for you, at which your heart rate variability is maximized, and to breathe at this rate regularly [3]. This rate is also known as your 'resonant frequency'.

MyCalmBeat is scientifically engineered to improve employee performance

MyCalmBeat is a simple and effective way to help your employees deal with stress, develop better focus and build resilience – all through personalized breathing.

Employers can provide individual MyCalmBeat monitors for their employees and/or set up kiosks that allow employees to calculate their personal best breathing rates on-site.

Reduce employee stress
Are stressed employees impacting your bottom line? The variability of your heart reflects how well you manage stress. By training to improve heart rate variability with MyCalmBeat, you can empower your employees to take control of how they manage their day to day stress.

Enhance employee focus
A key factor to engagement is an ability to stay focused and avoid distractions. High heart rate variability is correlated with better thinking capacities, including the ability to stay focused, remember important information and plan ahead to meet goals.

Build employee resilience
Resilient employees are key to a successful business in an ever-changing market environment. High heart rate variability is a strong physiological predictor of a resilient individual and can be improved with personalized slow breathing using MyCalmBeat.
