I use Lumiate when I'm looking to study, work, or just unwind. My ability to sustain focus has improved and I find that screen-time is less draining. Honestly if you use a computer, you should give Lumiate a try.
I tried Lumiate to help with anxiety and distraction outside of the office. In part because it goes to work while I work, Lumiate is the first meditation app that I have used consistently.
For me, mindfulness equals productivity. For my job, I have to live on the internet and social media; distraction is just a part of the equation. Lumiate has been a gentle reminder that has kept me mindful. Even on Twitter!
RESEARCHED BENEFITS OF TIME TESTED MEDITATIONS IN LUMIATE
Sometimes stress is a useful response. Meditation doesn't numb you, but it will keep you steady.
Keep your attention where it's needed. Focus on what's important.
Spend less time fixated on what is not productive.
Anxiety is a natural feeling. Grasping at something to fear is when problems arise.
Settle discursive thought and maintain awareness on a given set of circumstances.
Keep the mind calm to allow distractions to exit precious working memory.
The Cycle supports you outside of meditation. Through modern theories in attention and learning, the Cycle unconsciously reduces distractions and helps you remember your mindful state. Choose the right intensity for you. Then, cultivate the right mindset for the moment.
The association between meditative states and the Cycle strengthens as you grow through a complete library of guided meditations. The Cycle becomes your mental "save point" for your practice, allowing you to pick up where you left off, no matter where you are or what you are doing.
Research has discovered a wide array of benefits of mindfulness meditation.
Increase focus and productivity
Reduce stress and anxiety
Improve emotional regulation
The Cycle is constant and gentle. Once you know what it is, it stops alerting you. Thanks to perceptual adaptation, you'll see your screen "normally."
Still, we've found that different people prefer different strengths. You'll always be able to find the intensity of your liking.
According to leading theories of attention, our attention capacity is limited, but that capacity must be filled. If your task isn't occupying the full capacity, you pick up distractions. The Cycle fills empty space so distractions don't reach your attention.Learn More
Most people are familiar with following the flow of the breath to anchor themselves to the present. This is called "anchoring inside," but you can also "anchor outside," to the flow of the Cycle. You can do it effectively at any time after your first guided meditation.Learn More
"Mindfulness is critical to combat the digital distractions which threaten to lower our attention-span and undermine our mental health. But people often do not have the time to sit alone and practice meditation. Lumiate’s new form of light-guided meditation works in the background to help keep the mind calm and focused while you use your computer."
"As a lifelong meditator, I was surprised at how much the Cycle enhanced my mindfulness as I work. Every time I notice the effect, I breathe deeper and relax. It’s great being able to infuse my work day with mindfulness."
"I always found meditation rewarding but found it difficult to practice when I needed it most. Studying under Dr. Seton while pursing an economics degree inspired me to create something both mentally rewarding and practical."
