What is iMindTime?
Through the My Digital Health platform, we are currently running an randomised controlled evaluation trial of the iMindTime digital health program. People 18 years of age and over are able to sign up. Signing up involves creating a My Digital Health account (if you do not currently have one), providing your consent to participate in the iMindTime study, and completing several pre-program questionnaires. The program provides you with a range of different mindfulness exercises to try out over 6 brief sessions. The mindfulness exercises explored are:
- Mindfulness of Breath
- Mindfulness of Body Sensations
- Mindfulness of Emotions
- Mindfulness of Sound
- Mindfulness of Thoughts
- Loving Kindness Meditation
iMindTime and the other My Digital Health programs are wrapped within a dashboard system that offers you various other features and tools. For example, you will have access to a powerful self monitoring system that allows you to better monitor your daily mood, sleep and other daily lifestyle events. This ‘biopsychosocial’ information is then graphically displayed within your dashboard allowing you to choose with factors you would like to compare – allowing you to see patterns. For example, you may be interested in looking at how your sleep or physical activity levels impact on your mood. In addition, if you have a wearable fitbit device, you can also add this to the monitoring system – making self monitoring even easier. We have even made the platform more responsive to changes in your mood ratings, sleep, and activity levels. If your scores indicate that things are not going so well for you, we will send you an alert and provide you with some recommendations about what you can do about it.
