Stress is a natural reaction to a situation that requires adaptation. Right amount of stress keeps us active, motivated and enthusiastic. Demands of work, family, hobbies and activities sum up to a big load that can go unnoticed. The body does not know whether stress is positive or negative, also a dream job can wear out.
the Moodmetric measurement tells how well you reach balance
Measured value on a given moment is not important. Both high and low stress levels belong to each day.
On a long run the most important is balance.
The Moodmetric app offers a real-time view, diary and analytics to support stress management.
But the most important is one figure: the daily average number tells how well the both parts of the autonomous nervous system are in balance. (Read more about the Moodmetric index and the autonomous nervous system in our article series.)
Levels way above 50 mean that the stress load is higher than achieved recovery. The Moodmetric level of about 50 tells of a normal situation: the rest during the day and the sleep at night compensates positive and negative stress. Very low daily average levels are not usual. They might tell of depression.
From insights to change
The Moodmetric measurement gives a good picture on fluctuating stress levels. The results can be high during hectic periods in our lives. Even small changes may add recovery to the days, and the measurement shows which actions are most efficient.
The Moodmetric smart ring is also a tool for researchers and health care professionals. It suits well both to real-time observation of stress reactions and long term field research.
