This app by the Momentous Institute aims to ease deep breathing exercises for children, for a number of specific emotions. These are visualised as whirling down glitters in a virtual snow globe.
– The duration of the exercise cannot be chosen in advance and takes on average 1 minute. At that point, you have to chose whether or not you would like to continue.
– After completing the exercise, the remaining intensity of the feeling is evaluated. The automatic response following this evaluation is however independent of the exercise’s result.
+ Children can shake the smart phone to start the exercise: a fun interactive aspect.
+ The puffer fish which visualises breathing looks nice and offers support when conducting the breathing exercises.
+ The amount of glitters varies according to the initial intensity of the emotions children report before starting the exercise.
“Settle Your Glitter provides a fun visualisation of two complex topics: emotion intensity and deep breathing.”
