we know the feeling.



Whether it’s due to the fast-paced world of work, a busy schedule or a rushed commute- stress affects us. According to a new study, almost half of all German employees suffer from chronic stress. It can lead to cardiovascular diseases, sleep problems, headaches, burnout as well as a weakened immune system. In some cases, burnout, anxiety and depression may even occur. It quickly becomes clear just how big of a problem stress is; it has been described as the health epidemic of the 21st century.

But stress does not have to be a fact of life.


The solution? 
The Stress Guide: your guide to a stress-free life.

Stress Guide is your daily guide and stress coach for your pocket- just 5 minutes a day will bring you relaxation. The app was developed with the help of doctors, biopsychologists and IT scientists in order to provide you with a science-based and accessible stress management tool and is now a certified medicine product. Additionally, there is a cooperation with the TU Dresden Department of Biopsychology to ensure the continuous improvement of the application and its content, so as to provide you with the highest quality product.


A closer look at your Stress Guide

With Stress Guide, you can easily measure and reduce your stress. Stress measurement is enabled via smartphone camera, using the world’s first patented procedure based on light cardiography. The respiratory and pulse rate is analyzed, based on which the heart rate variability (HRV) and stress resistance is detected, and the individual stress, rest and relaxation index can be determined (find more information on this here). This vital data measurement provides you with an insight into your individual stress profile, so you can understand it and achieve long-term success in reducing your stress.


We recommend specific programs and exercises that are tailored to your individual stress level and thus provide the perfect stress solution for you. With the help of leading biopsychologists and stress therapists we have created these programs to sustainably reduce your stress and bring you relaxation. We offer something for everyone: guided mindfulness meditations, effective breathing practices, biofeedback exercises as well as stress-relieving tasks. Furthermore, courses are offered on various stress-related topics such as anxiety, work-life-balance, health and sleep. These courses are recommended to you based on your measured stress level, so as to specifically target your personal needs.


Additionally, Stress Guide offers you insight into your stress values and their measurement reports, so you don’t only receive evaluation but are also able to assess your personal success. The continuous measurement is essential for successful and effective stress management, as it provides you with a feedback loop. Based on this, you are able to understand your stress and how to manage it. Stress Guide provides you with your stress analysis reports and helps you to track your progress, so you can see the positive influence the respective relaxation exercises  are having on building healthy habits and a healthier you.
