Oura’s Moment feature allows you to check in with your body anytime, anywhere. Moment is designed for meditators of all levels to unwind with a mix of breathing exercises and guided meditations, all under 10 minutes.
After your session, Oura displays your resting heart rate (RHR) and heart rate variability (HRV) so you can evaluate how your habits impact your body.
One benefit of using Moment is simply giving yourself the opportunity to hit pause. Taking a break to let Oura measure your body’s signals can enhance your productivity and boost your recovery.
With Moment, you can also understand how effective different mindfulness practices are by comparing your results over time. For example, is there a breathing practice or soundscape that brings your RHR down? What happens to your body’s signals when you spend ten minutes in a guided meditation versus ten minutes of unguided rest?
If you try different practices under similar conditions (i.e., same time and place each day), you may uncover even more insights. Find the session that works best for you and incorporate it into your daily routine.
2. Choose from three options:
Oura partners with other content providers to deliver a diverse selection of guided or unguided mindful meditation, body status check-in, and breathwork exercises—ensuring you find the Moment session that speaks to you.
3. Set the time for your session length (1–60 minutes or open-ended), and remain still for the duration of your session. Oura measures your heart signals best under complete stillness—movement may compromise your results.
4. Analyze your results! At the end of the session, you will see your RHR and HRV trends. Use these to gain an understanding of how your mind and body are doing.
iOS users can also see their temperature trends.
RHR and HRV are personal. Comparing these metrics to others around you is less useful than comparing them to your own trends over time.
As you interpret your Moment results, consider these tips:
RHR and HRV can vary according to the time of day. Take a Moment at the same time and place each day to draw more helpful correlations between sessions.
