Introducing: Lief Stories


Lief Team
August 27, 2020 • 1 min read

We invite Lief community members to share snapshots of your Lief experience, and tell stories about how you’re utilizing your Lief data. We want to know how you’re becoming more aware of your triggers for stress, increasing your mindfulness, and engaging in calming heart rate variability biofeedback exercises to help prepare for or recover from challenges.

This week, we feature the founder of Lief Therapeutics sharing his experience wearing his Lief Smart Patch while taping an interview for the Today Show.

Rohan Dixit, Lief Founder

The Today Show invited me to talk about the Lief Smart Patch on their program, which is viewed by millions of people. I was excited about the opportunity, but also nervous about my taping. I’d never been on national TV before, and I wanted everything to go perfectly.

On my cab ride from the hotel to the studio, I did a 5-minute Downtime dose to help calm my racing heart beat. It helped me feel more centered before I was introduced to Savannah and Hoda. As a result, I was able to think more clearly and get my points across, even though I was operating on very little sleep after my cross country flight.

After the taping ended, I did another 5-minute Downtime dose to help myself relax, and immediately felt better. I could see my real time biomarker data in the Lief app, reflecting the periods of excitement versus relative calm.

Whenever I’m in my yellow or red zones (a.k.a. when my heart rate variability is relatively low), I use that as a helpful reminder to engage in a Downtime dose. I love seeing my heart rate variability go up in real time during a dose, and stay up afterwards. It’s very empowering to know that I have this level of control over my stress response!
