Inspiration

Imagine when you wake up in the morning and ready to enjoy the day. But then you feel that your heart is beating very fast. You automatically assume that you have anxiety without any evidence. The user then starts searching the web for answers which provide him with more anxiety which is unhealthy.

What it does

There is a menu with a symptom survey, meditation, and journal. In the symptom survey, the application asks the user a simple yes or no question. If the user responds with yes, there is a block of information of the general description, symptoms, and treatment. If the user responds with no, the app will move to the next question. In meditation, the python program will notify the user when to inhale and exhale. This essentially will control the user’s breathing to calm him/her down. In the journal, the user is able to record/view information about how the user felt and what they did on a certain day.

How we built it

The team used the platform called Replit for our application development. For the frontend application, we used HTML, CSS, JavaScript with the importation of the embedded python code.

Challenges we ran into

  1. There was a lack of time to accomplish the task on the TODO list
  2. Since the team has a lack of hackathon experience, there were times where we felt like we lacked organization and communication.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  1. We developed a finished and functional application.
  2. We shared and combined ideas together to develop the ultimate product.

What we learned

  1. Communicating as a team to produce a finished product.
  2. Helping each other out when they are struggling.
  3. Everybody should have a growth mindset and not a fixed mindset because we don’t know everything.
  4. We gained more coding experience and different ways to collaborate on code.

What's next for PeaceFlow

The next step for the PeaceFlow project is to assemble the team together for the next Hackathon and create an Android/iOS application to share with the public in the Google Play Store/Apple Store. We feel that this tool is crucial to maintain the mental health of the users because of the tools and information that it can provide.
