Stress free area® is an innovation in the field of wellbeing, developed by the Finnish Margit Sjöroos. It is neurophysiological design, independent from the individual and culture, that takes into account the importance between the physical, digital and mental environments for human wellbeing.
The concept is implemented in terms of colour, character and usability psychology, utilizing brain research. It addresses the senses from a cultural and neurophysiological perspective and aims to reduce negative, physical stressors.
In addition, it considers factors influencing states of alertness and different situations with multi-sensory and multidisciplinary, adjustable design. The perspective is unique in the world and the concept has been awarded several innovation awards.
My book about compassion (Myötätunto – ole läsnä, elä mukana, Minerva Kustannus 2010) aims to awaken people to the lack of compassion in themselves and in life today, and the impact its lack has on our wellbeing and the development of our community and society. The book also gives guidance in skills of compassion, how to maintain and develop oneself, as well as notice the characteristics of humanity in others.
Becoming compassionate is something you grow into, children become compassionate according to the example of adults, their parents and how they develop themselves as adults. Human is the only animal capable of compassion, therefore this trait distinguishes us from other animals and is a measure of our humanity. Compassion is about acknowledging others’ suffering, whether big or small, true understanding, and the desire to support others without the desire to push one’s own vision.
