Our website was created to help people who have busy, stressful lives find an easy way to destress and relax. We provide an outlet by walking you through a calming, meditation-like, simulation. We also provide additional resources from online creators and links to professional websites that offer even more services and long-term solutions.
In the modern era, there is a growing level of stress among busy people, such as high schoolers. As a result of stress, a high percentage of this population suffers from panic attacks and anxiety. They often find themselves with little time to relax and few opportunities/outlets to help them through stress.
Provide an outlet by efficiently walking the user through a calming, meditation-like simulation run by a “chatbot.” We also provide additional resources from online creators and links to professional websites that offer even more services and long-term solutions.
One of the main challenges in creating the simulation was getting the web “application” to act as a human-like chatbot. Because we wanted the simulation to act as a real person leading the user through calming exercises, we had to make each prompt of the walkthrough appear at the rate of talking to a human. Additionally, we had to take careful measures in distancing ourselves from assuming the role of a medical professional.
