Family friendly relaxation, breathing exercise and activity app.

Chill Panda is a new type of app that allows children and adults to start to understand how their bodies respond to different feelings. To start learning about this you can use the app to take your heart rate, use a simple scale to rate your feelings, and then do some play based activities demonstrated to you by a panda avatar. It aims to enhance self-regulation of emotions by introducing ideas and skills that could help children and families understand the relationship between their feelings, body sensations and different activities.

How does it work?
Increased heart rate and feeling stressed are closely related. By reflecting on your actions and the effect they have on your heart rate you can begin to learn what helps you feel better.

The heart rate monitor app detects your pulse by using the camera on your phone or tablet. As your heart beats, the volume of the blood flowing through your finger tip changes. Chill Panda uses the camera on your mobile phone to capture your heart beats.


a) Follow Panda as he shows you how to put your finger on the camera of your phone
b) The light (the flash or torch) on your phone will come on, it is this light that allows us to measure your heart rate. You don't need to cover the light with you finger just the camera.
c) Wait and Panda will take your heart rate.

This is not a medical device. Heart rates are shown only for guidance. This app does not replace treatment, if you are concerned about anxiety or depression please see your General Practitioner (GP) or a medical professional.

Camara permission is needed for measuring heartrate and microphone permission is needed for one of the mini-games that requires you to blow into it.

Bridge Problems

I can’t seem to get across the bridge! It’s is rather annoying however I found the game vaguely relaxing in the first 5 minutes. 🐼

I love this app, simple and effective

Great as an introductory app for relaxation and mindfulness. The exercises are simple so easy to do with the app or on your own in the future. I like the sounds countdown to the end of exercises which allows you to concentrate on the exercise, ie breathing, relaxing with your eyes closed. Recommended if you’re getting back into or new to meditation, yoga (panga!) and mindfulness

This app has soothed my anxiety.

If you like animal crossing you’ll love this app. It offers both quick breathing exercises and allows you explore pandas island and find the coping skills as you go. It’s a beautiful little game and it’s very simple and easy to use meaning you can play so mindfully.
