Mindfulness focuses on promoting joy and peace rather than banishing unhappiness. It’s precisely focused to help ordinary people boost their happiness and confidence levels whilst also reducing anxiety, stress and irritability.
This app is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression and it is recommended by the UK's National Institute of Clinical Excellence – in other words, it works. More importantly it also works for people who are not depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world.
Ratings and Reviews
Don’t usually write revues. Breaking old habits.
First off I would say buy the book that goes with the app. Got a lot out of it and it worked really well with the app. Whole package feels quite understate and not surprisingly relaxing. It doesn’t have the sort of American Dr Phil feel to it (though I’m sure he’s very helpful).
I have to say I really loved this app. Just finished the eight week course. Yeah I didn’t stick to it religiously but I did my best and that was good enough. It is a wee awakening that we are enough and that we are all the same. We all need a rest but for me I truly didn’t know how to release myself from the addiction of over thinking and enjoying, in a way, the misery and chaos of restless indecision. This app helped and I’m very grateful. Many thanks to the team at frantic world. If you are thinking about the app but are apprehensive about letting yourself experience a calm atmosphere. and having to sit still. I get it - I’ve been there but there is nothing to be afraid of. I hope you find the peace you’re looking for. Thanks again. Take it easy.
The genuine article
Mark Williams is THE mindfulness person in my opinion. His research & findings explain the theory & principles in an accessible way & give mindfulness meditation a creditable standing. The accompanying book to this is excellent & I find his voice so calming. I definitely always feel better when I’m doing meditation regularly, even if I can never quite put my finger on why. This app is a great starting point but great for continuing also. I’d definitely recommend the book too. This is the genuine article, unlike a lot of the other money-making apps out there.
Wife notices a change in me after just a few weeks
My wife thinks I am far more relaxed after just a few weeks & most of the time i do too. However i am not "cured" of all my stresses yet so persevering & trying to carry out my meditations as often as suggested. Definitely feel calmer immediately after a meditation but some are difficult to understand what is required so repeating them before proceeding to next stages
