The Power of Calm app
Stress – It’s a small word with an outsized ability to affect the way we think, feel and behave. Many see stress as a somewhat fluffy mental concept, but that couldn’t be further from the truth… It’s a physiological powerhouse that affects almost every system and process in the human body.
While different things stress different people to different levels, when we succumb to stress the physical response of the body is basically universal. We stop thinking clearly, our immune systems become compromised, our eating habits change, we become ‘tense’ and less able to deal with the challenges that life invariably throws our way. In other words... our bodies become single-mindedly geared for ‘fight or flight’… to respond in a ‘physical’ way to 21st century challenges which require a more thoughtful, considered response. Exactly the opposite of what we need to remain effective and healthy.
The Power of Calm app is a tool to help you shut down the exhausting ‘misplaced’ physical response that stress can bring on. It can teach you how to guide your mind and body away from ‘punching at shadows’ to a more quiet balanced state of calm, clarity and peak performance… anywhere, anytime.
The app includes a set of 3 x 10 min ‘Basics Videos’ which will change the way you think about stress and explain how it can be reduced using a simple, scientific technique whenever you need it most.
You also have full access to a set of powerful relaxation exercises that can help rebalance your nervous system in as little as a couple of minutes. The exercises are based on a combination of calming sounds and guided breathing… calm at your fingertips 24/7.
For those who like a little structure while learning a new skill, the app offers a 14-day program that will guide you through two weeks of relaxation protocols, reminding you when it’s time to take a few minutes out to reset, and giving you the option to choose a ‘buddy’ to help monitor your progress and inspire great compliance. At the end of the two weeks you will have a new skill for life and a good idea of what we mean by ‘The Power of Calm’.
A clear mind and calm, balanced body is a Powerful force for health, wellbeing and performance.
The app is available on both Apple and Android phones. More information, and download links are available via the link below:
