Simple and perfect
I have downloaded several meditation apps but they have all ended up getting deleted by me except this one. A lot of meditations ask you to imagine things or feel sensations and that just distracts me and makes me more stressed. I love that you don't have to 'do' anything with this, just let the calming voice and music wash over you. I often use it to put me to sleep as I have a very active mind and I also use it as a 'power nap' ie when I am exhausted and need a 20 minute nap because I can never get to sleep quick enough for naps because my mind is too busy. I have also used this as a quick recharge when I have a terrible headache or am exhausted and need to go out or back to work. 5 to 10 minutes and I feel so much better!
5 stars for style and simplicity
This app is one that I use each day, I work in mental health so it's vitally important that I start my day out calm and relaxed, I recommend this app to my clients also.
I particularly like how you can have the option of keeping the music going for a set amount of time after the meditation is finished. I like to keep the music going for another 10 minutes and during that time I visualize my life's goals and do a prayer time. Highly recommend!
Great for those who find it hard to fall asleep!
I've been struggling to rest my mind and block out thoughts and sleep well but this app is very effective in calming your thoughts slowly allowing you to rest, relax and slowly fall asleep. Love the ability to set the time as well (5 mins for a short break or 20 mins for a nap). Great choice of music and volume control as well. Very grateful to have found this app!
