The science by Shoorah

SHURU

chatbot is an amazing tool that will make a huge difference in the mental health word. People needs sometimes someone to chat with, instantly, someone who is objective and gentle who can guide them through their thoughts and prevent them from entering a toxic cycle of negative thinking. What makes SHURU unique is its use of extensive data and advanced AI, which means the guidance that is provided is not just based on someone’s opinion but rooted in a wide range of experiences and knowledge, including the latest findings in neuroscience. It’s like having a companion who understands the complexities of the human mind”.

Affirmations

“Positive affirmations are a powerful yet simple tool for improving mental well-being and maintaining a positive self-view. FMRI neuroimaging studies demonstrated that participants who repeat positive affirmations showed increased activity in the ventro-medial prefrontal cortex and ventral striatum, key regions associated with self-processing, valuation and decision-making. Thus, research showed that people who daily practice positive affirmation have a higher self-esteem and are more prone to change their negative health behavior. Moreover, self-affirmation activated neural-reward regions promoting motivation and was also been linked to reduced stress and anxiety (Cascio et al., 2016; Dutcher et al., 2016; Falk et al., 2015)“.

Journaling

Journaling is scientifically proven to be a powerful tool that releases stress from our nervous system. Dr. Marc Bouji from Shoorah explains that 68% of interventions using journaling have shown to have positive outcomes in decreasing participants’ anxiety, PTSD and depression symptoms. Neuroscientific studies also support these effects as brain scans of people who put their ‘feelings into words’ showed a reduced activity in the amygdala, a brain region responsible of fear and stress, which helps people feel more content and relaxed (Liberman et al., 2007, Sohal et al., 2022).

Meditation

“Join Shoorah in meditation to experience its profound impact on the nervous system and well- being. As our expert clarifies, a meta-analysis of more than 120 brain morphology differences reveals that regular meditation practice can increase the gray matter volume and adjust more than eight key regions in the brain associated with attention, sensory processing, and awareness. Meditation also decreased the volume of the amygdala and improved connectivity between brain regions reducing stress and improving emotional regulation. Additionally, it can increase the production of relaxing neurotransmitters and even improve the size of the hippocampus, which is vital for memory and learning (Afonso et al., 2020; Tang et al., 2015; KrishnaKumar et al., 2015; Fox et. al., 2014)“.

Sleep sounds

“Sleep sounds are a part of Shoorah to help you fall asleep faster and enhance your sleep quality, for a better mood and more energized morning. Meta-analyses reports have shown that listening to relaxing sounds or music before bed can improve sleep quality by reducing light sleep stages and increasing the amount of time spent in deep sleep. Furthermore, relaxing and pleasant sounds have been shown to decrease the time it takes to fall asleep in people with sleep difficulties, as well as promote relaxation and calmness (Saeda et al., 2022; Cordi et al., 2019)“.

Dr. marc Bouji statement related to Shoorah Rituals on daily habits effects on the brain and behavior

“Shoorah helps you easily form and stick to daily routines, as neuroscientific studies show that habits and rituals can lead to changes in brain structure and function, particularly those involved in decision-making and stress. Dr. Marc Bouji explains that routines increase activity in the prefrontal cortex, leading to enhanced self-control and determination, and decrease activity in the amygdala, leading to a calmer state. These changes explain why people who stick to daily routines report being happier and perform cognitive tasks better, while those with inconsistent habits report worse physical function, anxiety, and depression (Samgula et al., 2022; O’conor et al., 2019; Graybiel 2008)”

- Dr. Marc

Soundbite

Shoorah uses 5-to 7- minute soundbites to deliver its messages to its community based on scientific data showing that sounds and audios create greater emotional and physiological engagement with the content as measured by both heart rate and electro-dermal activity (Richardson et al., 2018). This is an addition to reports showing how different kinds of short audios have main influence on the human brain and cognition from supporting learning, improving working memory, and boosting motivation, which is in alignment with our continuous goal to drive our listeners into action (Haruvi et al., 2022 sacks et al., 2010; Hallam et al., 2002, Chanda and Levitin 2013, Salimpoor et al., 2015, Barton et al., 2020).

- Dr. Marc

Sleep

Developing good sleep habits is at the top of our priorities at Shoorah. As Dr. Marc Bouji from our team explains, sleep deprived individuals shows on fMRI an altered brain activity in areas of the Prefrontal Cortex implicated in self-control, decision making, and emotional regulation Dorrian et al., 2019). This is why, the lack of sleep leads people to seek rapid rewards and rely predominantly on their usual habits instead of following their goal-directed actions (Chen et al., 2017; Guarana et al., 2021). Therefore, we at Shoorah commit to share top scientific knowledge in the sleep field and promote the best practices to help people set and stick to all the well-being habits we promote in our application.
