App DescriptionGPS for the Soul is a killer app for better living. The 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.
GPS for the Soul measures your heart rate and heart rate variability, which taken together are a proxy for stress, and then connects you with the things that help you course-correct -- from music and poetry to breathing exercises and pictures of your loved ones.
Using your phone's camera lens to measure your stress level, GPS for the Soul will display your stress reading. The App then invites you to launch a guide.
A guide is a collection of the things that help you course-correct -- from music and poetry to breathing exercises and pictures of your loved ones. GPS for the Soul lets you play one of the guides we have assembled for you, or create your own.
GPS for the Soul's activity feed lets you see how your friends are feeling and what guides resonate with them. You can “favorite” a friend's guide, share one that resonates with you, or leave a comment.
The Internet and the rise of social media have given us amazing tools to connect, and to bring about change in the world. At the same time, our 24/7 connection to the digital world often disconnects us from the real world around us -- from our physical surroundings, from our loved ones, and especially from ourselves. We see the effects of this in every aspect of our lives. And the consequences can be really damaging, in terms of our health, our jobs, and our relationships. That's why HuffPost, along with our mobile development partners bLife and HeartMath, have created GPS for the Soul.
We hope GPS for the Soul will be just the beginning of a journey to help you reconnect with your creativity, your intuition, your peace and your wisdom.
