To say I’m a worry wart would be a serious understatement. I’m constantly telling myself to breathe (I even have it tattooed as a reminder) or to take one thing at a time and not get overwhelmed. But hey, life isn’t always easy and there’s a reason tons of people turn to meditation. Here are the best meditation apps to download ASAP.
Stop, Breathe & Think: I downloaded this app last week and I’ve enjoyed using it so far. It has over one million downloads and won the 2015 Webby People’s Voice Award for Health & Fitness. This app is great for people who have never meditated before and it’s really easy to understand. It also has meditations that are just three minutes long so it’s perfect for people on-the-go. It even lets you check your mental, physical and emotional state before starting a meditation and then offers specific a customized session.
Calm: This app has been featured on the New York Times and LifeHacker. With a 4+ rating, it will allow you to feel more calm and bring you peace of mind and clarity. There are guided and unguided meditation sessions, along with over 25 soothing sounds to fall asleep to. It’s free to download but you can purchase a monthly subscription to gain access to more features.
Headspace: This app makes meditation simple. It has been reviewed by the New York Times and even Emma Watson is a fan. There are guided and unguided sessions ranging from two to sixty minutes long. Enjoy hundreds of hours of original meditations when using this app.
