Breathe2Relax is a portable stress management tool which provides detailed information on the effects of stress on the body and instructions and practice exercises to help users learn the stress management skill called diaphragmatic breathing.Breathing exercises have been documented to decrease the body’s ‘fight-or-flight’ (stress) response, and help with mood stabilization, anger control, and anxiety management. Breathe2Relax can be used as a stand-alone stress reduction tool, or can be used in tandem with clinical care directed by a healthcare worker.

Excellent, Simple, Useful

This is a simple to use app that is an excellent tool to assist in breathing exercises.
The only thing it doesn't do is breathe for you :)!
It might be even a little better if the user could add their own personal background graphics and increase the amount of breathes in each session. Aside from that it is a five star app!
Thanks for offering it for free.

Small annoying feature choices, not detract from overall usefulness

I see how current design doesn't need to be outright changed, but it would be nice to have an option for following features:
* Manually set time for inhalation and exhalation instead of holding button,
* Custom set for number of cycles,
* Show cycles as minutes,
* Show countdown on amount of time / number of breaths left,
* More nature sounds or music options.

It's a perfectly fine app, but I want to try for 5 minute sessions and none of the presets are for 2 1/2 min or 5, but I'll definitely make it work for a free app with the breathing metronome.


The advantage of the App is that you can modify the instructions for when to inhale and exhale based on preference. The big downside is that the maximum number of breathing cycles allowed is 16. Even though I breathed very slowly, the program lasted only five minutes. I wanted a program that would guide me for 30 minutes. The app should be improved to allow the user to set the amount of time it lasts.
