We were asked to review the Luma Cube It helps you be mindful throughout the day and as a result can help with various mental health problems.
The Luma Cube is now live on Kickstarter which you can view here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mindbodygoals/lumacube-breathe-more-feel-better
Below is our review:
“I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on the Luma³ prototype as well as consult with their team on the practical applications and psychology behind how Luma³ can help people to easily feel better. It is a beautiful object that is pleasing to hold and compliments perfectly what I teach my patients to help improve their mental health.
Mindfulness and conscious breathing might seem like an uncomfortable concept but it is now a core part in new CBT therapies. We need it because regulating your breathing in a specific way has some truly great benefits. It helps us in managing anxiety, flashbacks, stress, depression, emotional dysregulation, sensory overload and chronic pain on a neurological level. With the right focus and patterns to breathing the science shows we can engage the parasympathetic nervous system causing our bodies to cease production of stress hormones, moving us from ‘fight or flight’ to ‘rest and digest’ mode.
Luma³ is an affordable and accessible tool for achieving these benefits. Mindfulness like this can be used in two primary forms; it can either help us be aware of our situation and the present so that we are not caught up in distressing thoughts. Or we can use it to lean into the uncomfortable emotions and situations around us, when we stop struggling with these the pain and distress that comes with them often lessens.
I’m excited to have Luma³ in my toolkit it will be a great addition for anyone who needs simple assistance with mastering conscious breathing.”
