It's no secret that Americans are stressed and overscheduled. The workplace is strained as job loss is at an all-time high. For people who work long hours on a computer, a U.K. spiritual practitioner and entrepreneur has launched Stillness Buddy , a software application that encourages calmness and peace throughout the day.
Developed by MindFree Ventures, Stillness Buddy creates short breaks that encourage "moments of stillness" and "mindfulness pauses."
Users can choose the duration and frequency of their breaks to suit their preferences and schedule.
"It is ideal for people who are often tense and stressed, working for long periods without taking a moment of rest," said Stillness Buddy creator Hector Bolanos. "Stillness Buddy helps them to relax and stay mindful of the present. It is like having a friend that every now and then gently reminds you to stop for a moment, breathe, center yourself again and then continue."
By regularly practicing the stillness and mindfulness exercises presented during the breaks, Stillness Buddy quickly and effectively helps to:
- Cultivate a deep sense of peace and stillness in every day life
- Work in a more mindful, alert and stress-free manner
- Be more relaxed, less tense
- Live more and more in the present moment
Stillness Buddy is already taking off in the U.K. It has been praised by experts including renowned Taoist teacher Stephen Russell, also known as the Barefoot Doctor, and BBC2 radio presenter and author Janey Lee Grace.
"Stillness Buddy is a wonderful tool that will certainly help you become more conscious and more at peace in the midst of a busy day," Russell said. "Its gentle reminders and exercises are great devices for attaining and maintaining peace of mind in a fast-paced world."
Janey Lee-Grace said that the application is perfect for "people like me, always chasing our tails.
"Stillness Buddy brings back a feeling of being centered, quickly and effectively," she said.
A 30-day free trial and further information about Stillness Buddy can be found at http://www.stillnessbuddy.com. The application can be run on any PC and a version for Mac users is scheduled for release by the end of 2009.
