Up & Up is a project created to promote collective breathing among students. College students are constantly stressed. Yet not a lot of them know the proper way to deal with their stress levels. Breathing has been known for its effectiveness as a stress intervention technique, but it has not been widely adopted nor practiced by a large number of people under stress.


Hoping to encourage students to learn more and adopt such an effective stress intervention technique, our project team created Up & Up – a mobile game which encourages users to dismiss the representation of their source of stress with peer support by pumping and flying balloons together.
