Got a hostile work environment. Your boss making vague threats and sending friendly reminders? Then grab this tool and have at it with the world of the quantified self and mindfulness tracking. The Spire notes your breath, quantifies it and lets you know when it might be time to step away from screen and breath mindfully before you do anything rash.
