Mindfulness is everywhere right now. This hot trend is one that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, especially with the advent of new apps for smartphones and tablets which put mindfulness (literally) at your fingertips. This revival, of sorts, is a way to incorporate mindfulness into your everyday routine and help you find inner peace in the chaos of your day.
Headspace is a popular app that focuses on mindfulness and meditation. Mindfulness is all about awareness of the world around you, which many people have difficulty with because of so many distractions on a daily basis. Once you get comfortable, you are able to focus on meditating with the help of the app using a daily routine of scheduled meditations or one use meditations.
Oprah and Deepak’s 21-Day Meditation Experience
This mindfulness app pairs Deepak Chopra with Oprah Winfrey presenting a journey of mindfulness that you can listen to on your headphones. There are no free meditations on this app and Deepak Chopra is the one who leads most meditations to help enhance inner peace and a sense of tranquility.
Calm is a popular app right now for mindfulness lovers. Like Headspace, Calm starts things off with scanning your body to see how you feel in this moment. Once you do that, you can choose from a variety of backgrounds like rain falling down which can help you relax. There is a companion book you can also purchase to supplement your meditations.
Omvana is an app that reportedly makes people feel happy and inspired. The app promises to help change your life and help you sleep. The app is really like a podcast library for meditation with a subscription to different people you can listen to each time you log in.
Hear and Now
Hear and Now uses the principle of guided breathwork to help you relax. The meditation sessions are designed to help you relax and find your ‘biorhythm,’ which supposedly supports bringing inner peace. Overall, these apps can help you create an experience you may or may not find relaxing depending on what your mindset is going into the journey. Some apps are maybe better than others in aiding your specific path to recovery. After spending a week or so trying them out, you may find that you don’t need apps to help you practice mindfulness, much less spend money. You may be able to learn how to do it on your own and if you like the apps, more power to you. Find what works for you and create a habit around it that helps you find peace.
