It’s common knowledge that working and studying can come at such a pace that it often leads to burnout. Founder Matt West is well aware of this problem and has used to find a solution, producing a podcast and app.
Born and raised in the small town of Palmdale, California, Matt West is an American Psychologist, podcaster, and well-being tech founder. He had always been interested in mental wellness and the power of the brain. His passion began when he was an 11th-grade student in high school. He was introduced to psychology by his Psychology teacher, Mr. Prince, and grew curious to understand what drives people to do what they do. It would become the impetus behind founding a company in the mindful and mental wellness space.
When he grew up, Matt West studied and got two master’s degrees in Psychology from Pepperdine University and Cal State Northridge. Matt came upon the concept of mindfulness, the ability to be fully present at the moment, and found that it decreased stress and sadness to shift to increased focus and happiness levels. He would later establish himself in Los Angeles as a psychologist. There, he exercised his passion for emotional and mental fitness, learning, exploring new ideas, and the power of technology.
While working, he found that many of his patients were millennials whose everyday life often wind up experiencing burnout. With a desire and compassion to help others, he developed Boom, a digital wellness company that provides guided mindful journaling training and mindfulness for its users.
Boom is an emotional fitness app that supports millennials from all walks of life at each stage of their lifestyle cycle as they conquer stress from burnout. It is geared toward novice mindful journaling millennials and people who are new to the concept of mindfulness and seeking an alternative to meditation.
The platform empowers people to capture and save the bright moments of their lives and encourages them to be productive and joyful. Boom boosts the user’s positive energy and attitude, introduces healthy thinking patterns and trains them to follow those patterns, and enables them to become productive and joyful.
Boom uses neuroscience and cognitive behavioral therapy to record themselves overtime on their journey to understand themselves better, build better relationships with others, and stress less. The artificial intelligence that Matt West implanted to the app personalizes daily activities that suit the user’s needs to increase productivity and focus on what matters most while maintaining their emotional well-being. Boom offers an immersive experience to create authentic results in their lives as they focus on mindful movements and continuous improvements.
Matt foresees that the app will garner millions of users globally and be used in two ways: it will be used by people to build the emotional strength needed to combat burnout. It will be used by people who want a better understanding of themselves. Matt wants Boom to be used as a part of people’s everyday self-care routine.
