“By learning to calm our thoughts we can avoid the negative effects of turning pressure into stress in our lives”
— Dr. Derek Roger Ph.D.

The app builds on 30 years research by Dr. Derek Roger Ph.D. and is inspired by his model for developing a resilient mindset created with the Work Skills Centre. His research shows, that ongoing worried thoughts (rumination) have the effect of keeping our mind and body in a state of high alertness. Releasing cortisol and adrenaline into our system, that over sustained periods of time tear on our immune functions. 

We can avoid the negative effects of pressure in our lives, by simply learning to calm our worried thoughts.

“I suck at silent, still meditation … Beasts of Burden is a godsend for me, as it adapts to my natural tendencies to move.”
