Stop, Breathe, and Think

Jun 17, 2019

Description

Stop, Breathe, and Think (or SBT) is a free app for managing your feelings and emotions through short activities. Its time-friendly features aim to help you achieve even just 5 minutes of peace – a possible rarity in your busy life. Promoting kindness and peace, SBT shares 10% of all net revenue with Tools For Peace – a nonprofit dedicated to sharing the benefits of meditation and mindfulness with at-risk youth.

 

Overview

The features of SBT are right in the name. The app reminds you to ‘Stop’ and take inventory of your feelings. While it should come naturally, we sometimes forget to ‘Breathe’ and SBT reminds you of the benefits of focusing on that in difficult times. Lastly, instead of reacting to situations, SBT suggests taking the time to ‘Think’ through peaceful exercises.

Stop

While your days may be hectic and sometimes feel like too much to handle, the app reminds you that there is always time to stop and access how you are feeling. Exercises of this feature attempt to teach about the substantial difference a few moments can make when we take time to pause and ponder our thoughts on whatever situation may arise.

 

Breathe

We all breathe without thinking. However, thinking about your breathing or practicing mindfulness can help reduce excitement that may result in unwanted reactions. SBT reminds you to breathe to separate and better control your thoughts, emotions, and reactions.

 

Think

With SBT you can draw upon personalized meditations and activities to widen your perspective. The makers believe that this can lead to more positive thinking and approaches to stressful situations.
