This App will Kalm your Mind

May 1, 2015

“Your mind will answer most question if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.” – William S. Burroughs

We’ve always got plenty of projects happening across the business at CITI Recruitment. One that I’m particularly proud of is a new app we’v gotten involved with, kalmmind which was launched earlier this month.

kalmmind is a revolutionary sleep, relaxation and meditation App for people of all ages and lifestyles. It allows you to create a kalm experience wherever you are, however you feel. It’s neuro-tested for those suffering insomnia, anxiety or fear and designed a beautiful user interface, which makes it fun to use (give it to your toddler to see what I mean).

The idea for the App came directly from our own experience working in a fast paced IT environments, trying to achieve balance in ones busy life, continually managing bad stress (distress) and channeling good stress (eustress).

One of the biggest stressors for me, and in turn my favourite reason for using kalmmind, is the ability to kalm my mind and focus on my tasks without distraction, first thing in the morning.

For us desk workers, so much emphasis is placed on taking regular breaks, going outside, standing up to work and cultivating other habits designed to alleviate repetitive strain on our body and mind in order to break up our day.

These techniques are critical no doubt, but for me are only only part of the answer to getting things done.

For the insanely busy and anxious types, when you sit down/stand at your desk after a break or first thing in the morning, getting into “the zone” can be challenging.

There’s no limit to what can distract you and suck up your time. There’s emails, texts, notifications, news, articles, meetings, small talk, and trying to remember if you turned the iron off when you left the house. Before you know it, it’s 11am before you really start your results-driven activities.

kalmmind lets me plug into the blissful sounds of waves, rain and even a crackling fire, steadying my breathing and relaxing my muscles. I’m able to switch off from outside distractions for as long as I need to, getting the big / hard / annoying / mundane stuff (the “frogs”) out of the way first up, completing tasks and enjoying less interruptions.

It seems so simple, but it has had a profound impact on my productivity, concentration and clarity.

As a byproduct, I’m also finding that when the team need me, I’m able to give them my full attention. I’m less distracted by all the mental heavy lifting I’m yet to do in the day. I’ve batched and completed the tough stuff first thing in the morning and I’m in a better mood for it.

So for me, kalmmind has been most beneficial for my productivity, however this is just one aspect of the App.

During its development, we spent time with scientists who explained to us the hugely positive impacts of Mindfulness Meditation coming out of clinical studies conducted at UCLA, Harvard, Oxford, Monash and NSW Universities.

We learned that regular practice in slowing down your neuro waves helps:

  • Combat stress
  • Improve focus
  • Increase resilience

These guys helped us build a tool to enhance your sense of wellbeing, clarity, kalm and contentment, helping you to release positive vibes in any work or life situations. Very cool.

We’re excited to continue our work with these neuroscientists who are helping us tap into further human insights so we can release new moods for you.

We’d love for you to download kalmmind for yourself and even your child, and let us know what you think. We’ll take it back to the guys in the white coats and see what happens. Stay tuned and enjoy a kalmmind.
