Five of the Best Meditation Apps we’ve come across
It’s funny how things that can make us feel uneasy and unsatisfied about our lives can also contribute to feeling more comfortable in our own skin. You’ve probably guessed we’re talking about internet that has successfully been a source or both our anxiety and endless useful information for years. We’re now in the world that is constantly speeding up and there’s not much we can do now except enjoy the ride and do our best to stay relaxed while it lasts.
We will talk about that safe side of the internet today, how we can benefit from it and how we can reap most advantages by using it. Our focus will be meditation apps, which can contribute greatly to our feeling of inner peace and calm.
Here are five of the best meditation apps we’ve come across.
Headspace has made a name for itself quite quickly, some say because it offers excellent meditation programs for all levels and we’d add that having Emma Watson behind this brand doesn’t hurt either. This app is straightforward and very easy to navigate – it’s designed as a game, in which you move on to a next level after you’ve done a certain amount of meditations or spent a certain amount of time using the app. First level is free and you get meditation sessions which last up to ten minutes, making it easy even for beginners. If you’re interested in deepening your meditation voyage with Headspace, you will have to subscribe to gain access to the rest of the levels that offer some great perks including longer sessions and other more advanced programs that will enable you to level up quickly.
This is a very serious app that brings to their users a vast choice of meditation tracks to choose from – there are over 200. Not only that, but to help you, Meditation Studio gives you the chance to take advice from over 25 experts of wellness and meditation that share their tips and insights on how to get better every day by using the app. You can also decide if you want a guided meditation or you’re bold enough to venture in it on your own with just music in your ears. The downside of Meditation Studio app is that you have to pay for it straight away, because it doesn’t have a free program that you can use to test its abilities.
Beautiful design and purpose-oriented meditation techniques to help even the most nervous people find some peace – this is what Calm app brings to you. From the first click, you can see that the application is made to help you relax in every possible way, and it starts with landscapes of nature in the background and some calming music, all of which makes the world look just a little bit better before the meditation has even started.
You’ve got a wide variety to choose from when it comes to your sessions – Calm has meditation for their sleep deprived users, as well as those who need a breather after a hard day at work and there are simple revitalizing meditations to help you get back to life. There are a lot of options to consider and you can try them all for free in the first week, after which you’ll have to subscribe to unlock different, more advanced programs that last up to 21 day. Subscription in itself isn’t cheap ($12.99), but what you get for it is well worth it. We only recommend being careful when paying through your phone – it’s always wise to consider some extra internet protection with ExpressVPN when paying for apps, otherwise you risk someone stealing your bank account details.
Here’s an meditation app that will help you in being more mindful throughout your whole day, no matter what you’re doing. True, you will have to pay for your share of mindfulness, because Buddhify has no free trial period, but the price isn’t that bad – $2.99 for Android or $4.99 for iPhone. Dedication to your inner peace starts the moment you open the app for the first time, seeing that it allows you to improve your wellbeing even when you’re not in a meditative state, but doing some other everyday things – making coffee, commuting, even brushing your teeth. There are more than 80 guided meditation tracks to help you in your endeavor to achieve constant state of mindfulness and their length goes up to thirty minutes, so you can choose just how much time you spend with Buddhify each day.
Your meditation practice can benefit greatly from Mindfulness app. Many users have agreed that this app not only helped them stay more present and mindful during their day, but it also pushed them into the right direction of general wellbeing and balance. This isn’t just an app that will tell you how to meditate, it will also guide you towards more spiritual practices and deeper understanding with its both silent and guided meditations. First five days of using the app are free, and then you can decide whether you want to pay and continue using it or move on.
If you’re serious about your meditation practice and you really want to do your best, then having one of these meditation apps on your phone can make the world of difference. Even if you’re skeptical that a piece of technology can give you some peace of mind, let yourself be surprised at how much meditation apps can help you in turning a lousy day into a let-it-go day. – Adam Ferraresi
