CALMIGO ACADEMIC STUDY
Tests and evaluation settings are very often and have a bigger impact on our everyday life, starting from grade school through university, work interviews, and so on.
For many students, tests are a source of anxiety and, according to NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health), approximately 20 million Americans (around 6.5% of the total population) already suffer from exam-related distress.
An academic study of CalmiGo's efficacy was conducted with undergraduate students who suffer from exam-related distress. The study compared 3 groups of students. One group used myReLeaf. The second group used unaided breathing methods, and the third group did not receive any treatment or support (control group). Each group practiced three times a day for three minutes each time. The study was conducted at the Inter-disciplinary Center Herzliya, Department of Psychology.
