Mindfulness is simple and proven effective; yet it is not always easy to find time to practice when busy, tired, in pain or stressed/anxious.
This app supports quick, effective guided practices to reduce stress/anxiety, improve performance and enhance sleep (along with the growing list of other evidence based benefits of Mindfulness like pain management).
“This app is like my best friend. I feel like it asks me how I’m doing? How am I feeling? What mood am I in?...The alerts, the reminders, the pauses [let] you be still for a moment. Very highly recommend this app!”
- Joeykcmo (iTunes review)
"I am bipolar and anxiety is a constant struggle for me. I started mindfulness a few months ago after my new therapist recommended it & found the breathing exercises helpful but really easy to forget or ignore.
This app has reminders, guides you through the meditation techniques & the best part is the pause button. When I start feeling tense I just take a little pause and get my breathing under control. Having the images to view while breathing activates more of my mind freeing the anxious thoughts. The reminders can be set for whenever or how often I may need them which helps me return to the moment when I don't even realize I'm tense.
I highly recommend this to anyone who suffers from anxiety or just wants to live a more mindful, present life."

What users are saying:
“One of the very few apps in which behavioral science and design come together.” -Roger Vilardaga, PhD, Clinical Psychology
“Fabulous for creating mindful habits throughout the day” -Omnyc (iTunes review)
“I've tried several meditation/mindfulness apps and this one has everything I've been looking for. It also happens to be the best designed app in this category I've seen.” -ForgetPerfect (iTunes review)
“While I know there are no ‘quick fixes’ when it comes to kids, this app is as close to one as I've found. I began the lessons to help deal with stress at work, and my 5th grader wanted to know what the audio reminders were about. I explained and know he's doing the lessons with me. They are working wonders on our frustration tolerance during homework and work! As soon as we start to feel that tension build, we remind each other of what we've been learning and practicing, take a moment, and regroup.” -John-546 (iTunes review)
What's New in Version 1.072
Upgraded to be iOS9 compatible which eliminated a few bugs.
Added free access to a future feature called mindfulness center. Mindfulness center can be found in the practice section of the app if you scroll down from the top.
In this release we're testing it out and have curated some great free videos from experts we're big fans of. If you have favorite video's you'd like added or are an expert and want to be included please contact us through the Help/Support section within the app. We're really excited about this directions and have already begun getting more feedback from all parts of the community.
At least for the immediate future this feature will require internet connection given the audio and video will be streaming.
We've added new community engagement functionality (e.g., how we receive feedback).
Ok but needs work, meh.
Ok app but, I had to reload it as it had an issue on my iPad and it lost all my data and thinks I am new all over again - meh. The lady who narrates is ok but her timing is out as she says for example in the body scan, on the next breathe feel your neck and pulse, she then starts the next one straight away so all you are doing is listening to her and not being mindful about your body part. Also she must be the slowest breather around. Even with deep breathing I do about three breathes to her 1, which again is annoying because she is talking while you are trying to be mindful. I have feedback when o completed the first 21 day stint but didn't hear back, so meh.
Very Helpful Practice
I have been using this for over 100 days now, mostly for anxiety, but have found it very helpful in my daily life. I find it easy to navigate and I have recently started using the Life Log feature. The longer reflections at the beginning and end of each day are great, and the shorter "pauses" during the day help keep me focused. A welcome addition to my day.
This is good. Really good.
I rarely rate apps. I've tried many. This is by far the best Mindfulness app I have used to date. It works so well to bring the user along the journey to building a regular mindfulness practice. It does this in a gentle, stepped, easily achievable way. Highly recommended.
