5 ways wearable technology is good for anxiety

November 26, 2021

Anxiety can be a difficult thing to navigate in your day-to-day life. Making efforts to avoid daily triggers can be exhausting and make it hard to live a normal life. With help from wearable technology for anxiety, you can go about your daily life and deal with your anxiety in healthy ways that will make it easier to deal with the weight that is your anxiety. Here at Doha Inc, we believe that we can get you started down the path toward effectively managing your anxiety with help from our wearable tech. If you’ve never thought of using wearable technology to help with anxiety, we have five ways that it can.

Tracks your heart rate

Your heart rate is often one of the first signs that you’re headed toward a panic attack. Being made acutely aware of an uptick in your resting heart rate can be a warning that you need to remove yourself from a situation before you get a full-blown panic attack. Your wearable technology can help to warn you of these changes with help from apps and features designed for your smart device.

Works in concert with other devices

It’s safe to assume that if you’re deciding to purchase wearable tech that you have other smart devices like a smartphone, tablet, or even your vehicle that you can sync with your tech. This makes it easier to be made aware of your vital signs as you go about your life. You can download complementary apps that will notify you of your vitals throughout the day so you can keep track of how you’re feeling. This feature makes it much easier to listen to your body.

Get better sleep

Not getting enough sleep is often one cause of anxiety and depression. Your body needs a certain amount of sleep each night to recharge, file away the events from the day, and start fresh each morning. Wearable technology for anxiety is a great way to make sure that you’re getting enough sleep each night and waking up with a full battery of your own.

Apps to navigate panic attacks

Beyond monitoring symptoms of panic attacks and getting better sleep, you can download apps to your wearable device that can help you work through panic attacks. Guided breathing timers will help you with soothing breathing exercises as a way to get out of an anxious spike. This can be an effective way to quietly navigate an anxiety attack if you’re in a public place and aren’t able to quickly remove yourself.

Stay connected while disconnecting

Sometimes we’re our own worst enemy when it comes to anxiety attacks. We can have anxiety about disconnecting from the rest of the world by putting our phones down for even a few minutes. Wearable technology is a great way to stay connected to the rest of the world without feeling obligated to have your phone in your hands at all times. You can still check your email, text messages, and have your calendar handy without the habit of checking social media every few minutes.
