If you find yourself nervous, anxious or generally stressed out at work, you are most definitely not in the minority.
In fact, the American Institute of Stress found 83% of U.S. workers suffer from work-related stress. Those stressors lead to $300 billion in business losses and almost 120,000 deaths each year.
While daily stresses stack up like traffic during the morning commute, the Aura Health app uses cutting-edge AI technology to help clear that road and get you on top of your stress.
Aura Premium takes advantage of groundbreaking AI advances to intuitively tailor short, science-backed mindfulness meditation exercises to your needs. You choose a 3-to-10-minute meditation, answer a few questions about the experience, then Aura begins contouring sessions to best serve your emotional state.
Aura uses its machine learning mood tracking tech to adjust to your patterns as you progress, even serving up relaxation suggestions when you’re most in need. Your responses are tracked with visual representations, allowing you to actually visibly see how much your stress level is improving.

- The internet has allowed fringe groups founded on paranoid thinking to merge in ways we've never seen before.
- Part of modern political polarization in American is that we're becoming a people who believes in different realities, some of which are based on fears rather than facts. Many of these conspiracy theories are targeted on groups that we believe are plotting against us.
- There is a romanticization that we're going to somehow solve all of life's unknowns, Da Vinci Code-style. However, this ironically may put us at a disadvantage in terms of breaking puzzles — we look for the familiar in vague stimuli, a pheonmenon known as pareidolia, which only further confounds us.
