There truly is an app for everything, including a navigation system for your soul.
Or there will be. It’s still in development at this point.
Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington spoke about the new app her staff is building at the Digital Economy Forum in Italy Wednesday. She said “there’s a price we pay” by being so connected all of the time. Disconnection from technology is needed sometimes in order to create, she said.
The app, titled GPS For The Soul, is supposed to measure your stress level and put you in touch with things that might help you relax. Huffington said her staff is currently working out the bugs but hopes it will help reduce stress throughout the day.
Technology can increase stress, so I think it’s ironic that the one thing designed to help reduce it is a smartphone app. Huffington also found that funny while speaking at the forum.
I just hope it works. I know I could use some relaxation tips after a stressful day of coverage or training.
If you’re interested in learning more about the app or want to keep up with development, you can receive weekly updates here.
While we wait for the release, be sure to check out other stories and relaxation tips on the GPS For The Soul site.
In the meantime, I’ll be practicing the following technique.
