Anti-Anxiety Necklace: 4 Reasons Why

April 15, 2023

The Shift is an anti-anxiety necklace. It was designed by husband and wife team, Todd and Vanessa, along with a close friend and licensed psychotherapist. When you use the Shift, you slow down your exhale, which turns off the anxiety response in your body.

Todd and Vanessa felt disconnected, they felt like passengers in their lives. They struggled to sleep at night and be present in the moment. They tried exercise and meditation and therapy. Nothing worked. 

Then they tried a simple straw-breathing technique that changed their lives. No joke, Todd describes his first few minutes as euphoric, and Vanessa says she was able to take control and get back in the driver’s seat.

We get it, the Shift sounds way too simple. But that’s what makes this anxiety necklace so effective.

If you want to lower anxiety and reduce stress, here’s 4 reasons why you should give the Shift a chance.

One exhale through the surgical-grade stainless steel Shift turns anxiety off. The more time you spend exhaling through the anxiety necklace, the more of a break you get from anxiety.

Some frequently asked questions

What is the Shift?

The Shift is a necklace concept that simply slows your exhale to 8+ seconds which triggers your vagus nerve to calm your nervous system. There’s no app, batteries, or chemicals involved…it just leverages a proven breath technique that calms you naturally and silently. It's like an anchor that's always there to keep you calm and cool.

It's just a straw right?

The Shift is the first of its kind so we can appreciate the initial confusion. We were inspired by a proven straw breathing technique to silently calm the mind but wanted to design something more practical and worn as a commitment to breathing better. We use medical grade 316 stainless steel with precious metal colors baked though so it can be used safely everyday. We also tested and patented the tube length and diameter in order to create ideal exhalations that physiologically trigger calm. You could absolutely use a straw but we found that random sizing can be ineffective and flatten in your pocket. Wearing The Shift as a necklace is a commitment to breathing better as a daily habit which makes you feel better whenever you need a breather.

Why can't I just breathe slower on my own?

Most people know that slower breathing works to relax them, yet still don’t do it. Why? Because we take 23,000 breaths per day and they’re all unconscious. The Shift is physical and because you’re wearing it, those slower breaths become more consistent as a daily practice. Whether you’re stuck in traffic, can’t sleep at night, or simply have an anxious mind…The Shift is there to immediately bring you back to calm.

Is this based on real science?

We totally understand if you're skeptical about how or why this works because it seems too simple. Our tool has been designed, tested, and patented by a psychotherapist who used proven data about how breathing affects your mind.

Think of your inhalations as the gas pedal and your exhalations as the brakes. Stress triggers short inhales which launches you into ‘fight or flight’ mode. With 50,000 thoughts and 150 phone notifications everyday, we enter this state of mind too often which makes us feel tired and tense. Extending your exhales immediately reverses this state within two minutes by lowering cortisol (stress hormone), blood pressure, and heart rate.

We used this proven science to engineer a tool that allows you to access these longer exhales more often which makes you breathe better as a habit.
