The 3 Best Apps For Meditation

The 3 Best Apps For Meditation

 

Meditation is all the rage these days, with everyone from doctors, co-workers, and celebrities singing praises for this activity. But let’s face it, it can be pretty intimidating! With all the ruckus, details, and plug-ins of life, it is hard to quiet our minds and totally tune out the noise. I have found learning meditation begins with accepting that sometimes you need help, and sometimes it just won’t be perfect. The effort itself can go a long way and for the days when it is harder than others, there are some great apps to help move the process along.

Headspace

It is thorough, complete and gives you a full schedule to follow and only requires a commitment of 10 minutes a day. Not to mention, the explanation of the goals and ideas of meditation when first starting the app allows you to better grasp what you want to achieve by meditating. The app is free with a subscription attached to further participate in your mind training. Headspace is probably the most complete and comprehensive app out there when it comes to learning how to meditate.


Simply Being

I love Simply Being because it allows for a little more independence in the pursuit of meditation. It is a quick and easy way to relax and I have fallen asleep on more than one occasion while using it. You can opt for soothing sounds and/or a narrative that tells you what to think about and how to unwind. You can also set the timing on it so it fits well into your life and time frame!


Insight Timer

This is a fantastic app as it gives you so many options and types of meditation. Not all background music or narratives are fit for everyone and this gives you alternatives and an ability to pick what is right for you. This is more thoughtful to the idea that people may respond differently to varying sounds.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but
    instead of that, this is excellent blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

    I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, but I never found any
    attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful
    value enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right
    content as you probably did, the web will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
    experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness
    and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a
    excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog!
