            Mindfulness and meditation practices have been studied for their benefits to mental and physical well-being. The aim of this PhD is to explore interactive meditation applications that utilized real-time and non-disruptive feedback to support alternative mindfulness practices. We used frameworks in the Attention Regulation Framework to design the applications. In the first study, we explored kinetic meditation as it might give more opportunities for more novel research in mindfulness practice and interaction between the users and the interactive kinetic meditation applications. The preliminary result showed positive responses and we will use the feedback to inform the next studies. The findings of this PhD will provide more information about designing interactive mindfulness applications.
