36 How have I felt?

37 The challenges Data entry & device integration

38 Key conclusions I can consistently raise my HRV while working (and living) An increased HRV corresponds with greater relaxation levels ‘touch’ synchronisation of breath at least as good as ‘audio’ It has been a great tool to ‘relax’ & focus at work It has changed my behaviour – dedicated meditation time

39 Key conclusions I feel great!

40 Future research EEG readings, Focus, concentration, working memory Blood Pressure effects Quantify other life metrics (e.g. centredness) Sleep data
