May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so there’s no better time to take a second to catch your breath with Yahoo’s latest XR experience. With just the click of a button, you can transport to a blissful Moment of Mindfulness and immerse yourself in a free breathwork exercise to help you refocus and reset. Here’s how to try it out:

  1. Using your desktop or mobile device, expand the embed window below.

  2. Turn on your audio to listen to the guided session.

  3. Watch the flower expand and contract while you breathe along—and boost your mental health.

In collaboration with breathwork expert Viral Khajuria, the Yahoo team conceived an experience that could deliver a useful tool to our readers while utilizing next-gen technology. Lead designer Heewon Sohn chose to depict a lotus flower because of its history as a symbol of enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth.

"The lotus flower has a deep cultural significance for many people across many groups, and I thought it was a perfect representation as an object within the experience," Sohn said.
