The main idea
The main idea behind this app is to allow you to create a positive habit of taking deliberate rest throughout the day.
The routine of taking a rest can assist you with stress relief, boost your productivity, enhance your creative side and promote your holistic wellness.
3 major routines for rest were chosen for this app:
- music relaxation
- physical exercise
- moment of reflection.
Although there are plenty more modes that could create a similar rest effect, these were chosen as they represent 3 major aspects of rest- mental relaxation, physical relief, and mental stimulation.
The Rest Routine phone app is going to help you with creating the habit of rest and also showing you ways how you could spend your break.
Start building your healthy rest routine by setting up your rest reminder, which will pop the notification on your phone screen at the chosen time.
Then choose your rest mode- music relaxation, physical exercise or a moment of reflection.
Music relaxation mode
When you open the Music screen you will see a collection of music tracks to play. There is a selection of nature sounds or samples of ambient music.
For you to be able to fully relax, you need to disconnect from whatever you do, find a quiet place where you will not be disturbed, put your headphones on, maybe even close your eyes (if it helps you) and relax into the music. I hope you will find something suitable for you, either a slow and relaxing or an energizing piece (depending on your mood) and get the full benefits of the break. Usually, 5 minutes is enough to mentally escape from the busyness of your day and refresh mentally. Let your mind go free without pushing any ideas, just let it be, a goal here is to relax fully.
This mode of the app is connected with physical relief. Even 5 min of exercise will give you a much needed break and refresh your body and mind. Choose whatever exercise you like, if it is a walk, a run, jumps or yoga routine. Get up from your desk, stretch and take few deep breaths. Start the timer and enjoy the break.
Moment of reflection
This mode is aimed at mental stimulation, giving you a the time for a moment of self reflection.
A creative break can open your eyes to different possibilities and solutions, thinking out of the square and noticing what others, and you, may have missed before.
Draw a question by pressing a button on the reflection screen and deliberate on it for a moment. What comes to mind? Does it trigger any emotions, thoughts?
The paid version of the app would have the option to type your answer and record it in your archives so you can see how you progress in time. It is very beneficial to actually think about your answer and write it down. It’s usually the beginning of something different, a new thought, new perception, some new possibility. Enjoy the breakthrough!
