About MyCalmBeat


The variability of your heart rate reflects how well you manage your stress

By training with MyCalmBeat, you can increase the variability of your heart rate to:

  • Decrease stress
  • Improve focus
  • Build resilience
  • How it Works

    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

    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 when you need to perform such as an important presentation. MyCalmBeat can also be beneficial when used before sleep to during periods of pain such as headaches.

  • Science Summary

    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'.

  • 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.

  • mobile

    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.

  • graph

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