The Huffington Post Launches “GPS For The Soul,” a Comprehensive Approach To De-Stressing And Course-Correcting Through Inspirational Content, Specific Practices, Interactive Tools And Services

Stocks in this article: AOL

GPS FOR THE SOUL is The Huffington Post’s new initiative encompassing technology, storytelling, and services, part of the site’s comprehensive lifestyle coverage around the theme “Less Stress, More Living.”

The first in a planned series of stress-reducing technology tools launches today with GPS for the Soul, the free, interactive iPhone app that provides a real-time measurement of stress levels and connects users with personalized tools that help them course-correct. The app was created through a partnership between The Huffington Post; HeartMath, the leader in research-based stress management programs, techniques and technologies; and bLife, a wellness innovation company that has developed the platform on which GPS for the Soul app is being built.

The GPS for the Soul iPhone app is based on two truths: that we all have within us a centered place of harmony and balance, and that we all veer away from that place again and again. It is intended as a course-correcting mechanism, at a time when we're learning more and more about how destructive stress can be in people’s lives, with serious consequences in terms of health, careers, creativity and relationships.

“After many years of celebrating the miracles of digital technology and connectivity, we are now finally beginning to acknowledge the snake in the Garden of Eden,” said Arianna Huffington, chair, president, and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group. “This new trend that acknowledges all the stresses that the brave new world of hyper-connectivity has added to our lives is also paradoxically looking at technology to help us disconnect. At HuffPost, we’ve woven stress-reduction into every aspect of what we do, from our GPS for the Soul app and 18 lifestyle sections to our new partnerships and focus on mindfulness in the workplace. It’s not just about telling stories. It’s about changing lives.”

The GPS for the Soul iPhone app is designed to work in conjunction with the GPS for the Soul section on The Huffington Post, along with HuffPost’s new stress-reduction daily email newsletter and future GPS for the Soul online services. The app measures your heart rate and heart rate variability, which taken together are a proxy for stress. The app then connects you to a personalized guide that offers music, poetry, breathing exercises and pictures of your loved ones that help lift and realign you.

In addition to creating personalized guides with music and images from their own iTunes and iPhoto libraries, users can access friends’ guides, choose from pre-installed guides created by experts and others, and share their own guides using social media.
