I propose (and here I freely admit that this project is still in the "working the kinks out" stage) a biofeedback app that incorporates both the client's willingness to engage and participate in meditation/guided breathing in order to return from a heightened state of anxiety to a calmer resting state. Using heartbeat variability in baseline, self defined "I am feeling normal/great/inexplicably blissful" states, the user self defines his/her target resting state. Then, when the client is conscious of feeling anxious (again self-defined), the client is guided through measured breathing exercises or meditation which brings their anxiety back under control (as measured by a more ideal parasympathetic/sympathetic tone). Ideally, these meditation modalities mirror client centered therapies which the client has already had success with in the past. Similarly, one could define the baseline states in terms of past responses to phamaceutical anxiolytics, i.e. "me after my Ativan", etc.
