Zen Lounge started with the onset of Pandemic. The initial idea was to give some support during stressful times. Something widely available and free of cost – Music. Not any music – but soothing relaxing music with an ability to mix one or more nature sounds which have a proven effect on mind.
The Zen Music app was an instant hit and downloaded worldwide. Music is an universal language and the human brain is hardcoded to music. Medically, it has been well proven that music has a profound effect on relieving stress. This is part one of the story…
Zen Lounge Version Two
Living in the Post Covid era is even harder! Perhaps the most devastating effect of all this has been a second pandemic that psychologists are calling mental health pandemic. The effect of stress and anxiety has far-reaching devastating effects than we can imagine. Not only our mental wellness, but stress also affects immunity to a great extent. This is when we started developing Version 2 of our app which is now available…
But we also found that our only home – planet earth was more stressed than us…. With 46% of the forests gone and ever increasing pollution she needed more help and support than us… We planned this unique app to make it complimentary for mother earth to get benefits of your meditation – yes, this is what the Zen Lounge App is all about. You meditate and the earth goes green. The more you meditate the more greener it goes !
For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated by the connection that exists between nature and the mind. It’s one that led me to turn my back on a corporate career after 20 years, give away my material possessions, and move to a calmer place. I chose Himachal — a remote village that allowed me to spend years connecting with tribes and Buddhist Monks who showed me a new definition of happiness. Once I saw the way reconnecting with nature changed my life, I knew I had to share it with the rest of the world. In that moment Zen Lounge was born, and I’ve never looked back since.
By creating a simple, intuitive app that allows anyone to immerse themselves in their own personal soundscape, I’ve created a little island of calm and tranquility you can visit all day long. Just what you need to hear when you want to meditate, relax, and enjoy the level of stress relief that only nature can provide. All you have to do is decide when you want to start your journey…
Staying true to the journey and the world around us matters more now than it ever has. That’s why we want to promise that for every level you cross on your journey, my team and I will plant a tree in your name with one of our trusted NGO partners. It’s about giving back, and we need you by our side to make it happen.
Meet other members of our team who has been helping me from the very beginning to make this project a success.
During my journey in developing the Zen Lounge App I have been blessed by sincere suggestions from fellow earth lovers.I can only mention a few of them here.
