So it’s not surprising that corporations are jumping on the mindfulness bandwagon as the next panacea. It’s also not surprising that trainers, coaches and consultants have figured out there is big money to be made on corporate mindfulness programs. It’s a perfect collusion that places the burden to relieve workplace stress and be cheery and happy squarely on the employee.

Using Real-time Biofeedback of Heart Rate Variability Measures to Track and Help Improve Levels of Attention and Relaxation
The main purpose of the study was to investigate if it was possible for a person to use the real-time biofeedback of their heart rate variability (HRV), recorded from a heart rate monitor watch, to help improve their level of attention and relaxation. Attention and relaxation are important factors affecting creativity, so improvements in "relaxed concentration" could help enhance creativity. New HRV analysis algorithms were developed and tested together with three different user interfaces to explore how the interaction design affects user performance. Initial results suggest that it is possible to estimate levels of attention and relaxation, at least at a crude level, and that people are able to use this information to help improve their level of attention and relaxation. In addition, the results suggest that the interaction design of the application has a very important role to play in supporting user engagement and to maintain motivation levels.
