I have been collecting my HR while gaming (League of Legends) via a PPG sensor on my ear. I have been using the device to help myself recognise tilt and negative emotions and which coping mechanism works.
Postgame this is what my data looks like (https://imgur.com/a/4sANVdn). The yellow line is my BPM. I know what I'm doing during the early game so my heart rate is very consistent except for when I had my first death. I started performing some breathing exercises to help bring it back down again.
The midgame and late game were very taxing, my heart rate would jump between 68-150. I tried using keywords and breathing exercises but by the late game I had forgotten and was totally tilted hence higher amount of deaths at the end.
The green line is a function of HRV to try and model stress. It interesting to note that at ~27 mins they hit Baron and I knew the game was over and my HRV went under the bar(-negative is less stressed).
Have anyone else measured their HR and made useful changes from the data?
Any useful advice?
**At 26 mins, I got tilted and threw my headphones which knocked the sensor hence why it skyrocketed to 220BPM.
