Feeling stressed out? There’s a Free App for That: GPS for the Soul

Using your phone’s camera lens as a sensor, GPS for the Soul measures your heart rate and heart rate variability (HRV), which measured together are a proxy for stress, and then connects you with the things that help you course-correct – from music and poetry to breathing exercises and pictures of your loved ones.

While the GPS for the Soul app is a useful antidote for stress, it also can help users tap into what’s vital to their happiness – connecting to their inner nature and intuitive signals, also known as heart intuition.

Remember what your grandmother always told you about listening to your heart? Researchers are confirming that the heart actually plays a key physical role in the intuitive process, and a recent study found that the heart receives intuitive information before the brain – by a second or slightly more.

The GPS for the Soul app can help keep our stress levels low and our heart rhythms smooth with help from HeartMath’s HRV camera sensor that is at the core of the app. HeartMath’s HRV technology is best known in the form of the award-winning emWave® technologies that provide the most advanced and accurate HRV sensor monitoring and training. From our research we’ve seen that the monitoring and training combination can be highly effective in assisting people to transform stress, access heart intuition and anchor sustainable behavior change.

HRV coherence feedback is designed to help people bring their physical, mental and emotional systems into balanced alignment with their heart’s intuitive guidance. GPS for the Soul gives people a taste of the transformational power of the heart. As we get our heart, brain and mind in sync or, as science refers to it – into a coherent state, we have greater access to our heart intuition. We’re talking about having a practical intuition that can help prevent stress and make better decisions as we learn to listen to our inner promptings.
