The Peaceful Citizen

Featured image

By tracking movement with common sensors on a smart phone we can detect stress and it's cause (i.e. environmental, physical, emotional, mental, other). By applying programming from Oxford Universities Center for Evidence Based Medicine we reduce the stress with specific mindfulness techniques.

What is the goal of the project?

To empower citizens to take personal responsibility for their health and wellbeing. Starting with a focus on stress reduction.

Why stress?

  • Stress is the basic cause of 60% all human illness and disease
  • 3 out of 4 doctors visits are stress related
  • Chronic stress has been proven to lead to depression AND depression is now ranked as the #1 leading cause of disability, affecting over 350 million people worldwide

Our goal is to provide a tool that helps identify if stress is present, the cause of stress and provide evidenced based programing to reduce the stress.

Always looking for that we all have a better life, and one of the causes that impacts on a better quality of life is the reduction of the stress. That's why we decided to create Sensie.

Stress stems primarily from wrongly identifying ourselves with our beliefs, having a tool that helps us identify that this is happening and leads us back to our true joyful essence is one of the best possible use cases of technology serving wellbeing!!!
