AntiStress – use conscious breathing and assess your stress level
AntiStress helps you deal with everyday stress. An audio guide teaches you conscious breathing, which research has shown can reduce stress and increase your well-being. To help you begin to understand your stress levels, the app allows you to make daily notes about what saps or boosts your energy and your perceived stress level. These notes are kept in your personal diary on your smartphone.
How can listening to AntiStress help me?
When we are stressed, we automatically breathe shallower and faster. If we consciously breathe more calmly and deeper, it sends signals to the brain which reduce stress. Try to practise AntiStress every day. Using the method regularly can help to manage thoughts and feelings that might otherwise prevent you from having a sense of well-being. Give yourself time and patience. The AntiStress self-care programme is designed to prevent and reduce stress. AntiStress should be seen as a complement to other care programmes that reduce the amount of stress in your life. If you have serious stress-related problems, it is important that you contact your healthcare centre.
The AntiStress app is produced by the Research and Development Unit at Primary care Fyrbodal, Region Västra Götaland. Research in several fields of medicine have been used in its development by Tina Arvidsdotter, PhD in Health Sciences.
