Relaxed Mobile App: Try Novel Approach to Insomnia and Stress Management
According to recent statistical data, over 70% of Americans suffer from insomnia. It is not just a frustrating experience: sleep loss can negatively affect one's mental and physical health. It increases the risk of developing anxiety, depression, hypertension, Type 2 diabetes, and obesity, also impairing the immune system and cognitive performance. What can be done to address this problem?
It is known that stress is one of the main causes of sleeping problems. If that is the case, insomnia can be alleviated with the help of activities that promote relaxation and create peace of mind. That is what Relaxed mobile app is meant for. It is always at hand when one feels anxiety, has learning difficulties, worries about problems at work, or just cannot fall asleep.
Today there are a lot of relaxation apps in the market, but all of them focus on audio-based techniques such as guided meditation, music, and audiobooks. But researchers have found out that auditory relaxation is not universally optimal. Visually oriented people prefer pictures and videos to aural content, while kinesthetic learners need tactile engagement. That is why Relaxed offers soothing content of different kinds:
- Interactive stories combining 3D visualization and narration
- Soothing games (Sheep Count, Mandala, Match-3)
- Meditation (courses and exercises)
- A vast library of music and nature sounds
- Fragments of audiobooks in various genres.
The creators of Relaxed plan to constantly update the app by adding new content - music, stories, books, and games for deep relaxation and healthy sleep.
"These are complicated times. Many people feel overwhelmed by stress and anxiety, which build up and cause insomnia," says Andrey Kudrin, CEO of Game Mavericks company. "I used to suffer from insomnia myself and had to consult experts on sleep disorders. That's when I got the idea of an app that would help people feel peaceful and calm before bedtime. We began to develop Relaxed so that everyone could alleviate stress and beat insomnia in the most suitable way."
Relaxed mobile app was created by an international team consisting of developers from the US, Canada, Russia, Ukraine, and Taiwan.
