Here’s what experts in the field of psychology had to say about Personal Zen:


“Personal Zen brings cutting-edge research and well-established strategies for reducing anxiety and stress into the palm of your hand.”
Shannon M. Bennett, Assistant Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College


“Instantly engaging for adults and kids, Personal Zen is a rare example of science turned into fun in order to reduce stress and anxiety.”
Dr. Tony Simon, Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, University of California Davis


THE POWER OF SMALL STEPS: BRIEF USE CAN REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY


To lower your overall stress and anxiety our research shows that you should play 4-5 times a week, for the time recommended by the app, between 6-12 minutes per day. Playing more (up to 40 minutes a week) has been shown to have potent stress- and anxiety-reduction effects, and playing less, even for only a few minutes, can boost your well-being and build resilience. A small-time investment can lead to big pay-offs in well-being over time.


FIND A MOMENT OF ZEN WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST


Take a break from stress and anxiety with Personal Zen. Use Personal Zen to prevent and lower stress and anxiety or use it when you're in the midst of a stressful situation. By using Personal Zen, you train your mind to shift your attention towards a more positive focus while experiencing the calming effect of gameplay and accompanying music.


HOW DO I USE PERSONAL ZEN?
Start by completing a daily check-in and tune into your stress and mood. The check-in helps determine your personalized goal. To use Personal Zen, look for the sparkle to follow the friendly sprite (the smiling face) after it disappears. Don't try to capture the friendly sprite. Simply tap the sparkle quickly, then smoothly trace the path left in its wake. A jewel will appear, telling you where to focus your attention next. Don’t let the angry sprite divert your focus from finding the sparkle. It’s natural to sometimes trace the path a couple of times to achieve accuracy.


Visit Positive Practices and take a few minutes to review tips and tools for reducing stress and anxiety from Dr. Tracy, creator of Personal Zen. Personal Zen offers science-based tools, like breathing exercises, musical therapy, and journaling, among other tips that help better manage stress and anxiety.


HOW DOES PERSONAL ZEN WORK?
Decades of research show that when we become anxious or stressed, we tend to focus too much attention on the negatives and have less ability to see the positives in life. This habit of attention reduces our ability to cope effectively with stress and can create a vicious cycle of fear and worry.


Luckily, habits can be broken and new habits learned! Personal Zen helps to short-circuit these negative habits of attention and allows the user to develop a more flexible and positive focus. By using Personal Zen just a few minutes a day, a few days a week, you can strengthen well-being, and build resilience against the curve balls life sometimes throws.


Brief training with Personal Zen can even reduce your body’s stress response! Our studies show that using the app 5-10 minutes a day, a few days a week lowers levels of stress hormones known as cortisol, and lowers anxiety.
