Need Some Calm In Your Life – Use Spire
The Holidays are upon us and boy do I feel it! It is supposed to be a happy time, but a lot of us feel stress and anxiety. We bake, cook and if you add children in the mix, then you know about stress! I have the perfect thing to help you stay calm. Spire is an amazing little technology wonder! It reminds you to take a deep breath (before you even realize you need it) or to stop tensing up.
The Spire Unit and App
The Spire unit comes in two different forms. The one I received, is shaped like a small rock with a clip on it. Obviously, the clip is so you can clip it to your pants or bra. The other unit is the health tag. It is small and shaped like a business card. You simply attach them to your clothing, and live your life! The Spire unit is always collecting data from the way you are breathing. When we get tense, our stomach muscles begin to tighten and it reminds you to relax and take a deep breath. It even knows when you are focusing! It keeps track of when you are calm, focused, tense, active, and sedentary. Do you need to count your steps? It does that too. Do you need a reminder to get your butt up and move? Yep, does that too. If your Spire unit is away from your phone or off of Bluetooth, it is still collecting data. It will sync the information once it comes in contact with your Bluetooth again. The charger for the Spire unit is so cool. It looks like a round piece of wood. You simply lay the unit on top of the charger (no plugging in) and that is it! There is a blue light on your unit that shows if it is fully charged or not.
How It Helped Me
I have anxiety and panic attacks. When I learned I was going to receive the Spire, I cannot tell you how excited I was. After only three days of wearing it, I am very happy to report that I have not had an attack so far. It is so strange. I will be watching a movie that provokes emotions, and my Spire app tells me to relax or breathe! My favorite thing about the Spire app is that it gives you helpful ideas to calm down. They are called “boosts”. A couple of examples include Meditate, Energize, Reduce Tension, etc., and that is only to name a few! You tap on them and it takes you step by step through the process. It is almost like having a meditation or hypnosis app, but so much better. My only problem with the stone is that you don’t sleep with it. I tried, but your app will wake you up all night! Unfortunately, my panic attacks happen while I sleep or when I first wake up. The health tag is something you can use while sleeping. Other than that, I loved my Spire unit! I also loved knowing I could walk away from my phone and the unit doesn’t disconnect from Bluetooth easily.
Great Gift Idea
I don’t think I know a single person that doesn’t feel some type of anxiety or stress from time to time. The Spire would be so perfect! I have quite a few people in my family that have anxiety problems. I wish I could get every single one of them a Spire. Happy Holidays to everyone, and go get your own Spire!
