Chosen for "Best Sleep Apps of 2014" and "Best Anxiety Apps of 2014" by healthline.com.
**Now with new high quality nature sounds from Emmy Award-winning nature recordist Gordon Hempton.**
Three meditations of varying lengths allow you to relax deeply regardless of how much time you have available. Written Meditation Tips help support your experience with the guided meditations. No previous meditation experience is required.
-- Breath Awareness Guided Meditation (5 min) - to get centered and relaxed when you only have time for a short break.
-- Deep Rest Guided Meditation (13 min) - allows you to sink into a deeply restful state. Many people use this meditation for falling asleep.
-- Whole Body Guided Relaxation (24 min) - Relax totally and completely with this meditation which helps you locate tension in every part of the body, and let it go.
Each meditation can be listened to with or without music or nature sounds, and you can choose how long to listen to the music or nature sounds after the guided meditation finishes. Separate volume controls not only allow you to adjust the mix of voice and sounds to suit your preference, but give you the added option of listening to the music or nature sounds alone.

Great anxiety & sleep aid
This app is well worth purchasing having downloaded & purchased many mindfulness/ meditation apps!
I suffer with anxiety and chronic pain and this often affects my sleep. I can say that I haven't ever heard the end of the 30 minute sessions & love the fact you can add music or sounds to the end of the guided session for as long as you like!
To get 5* I think it'd be nice to have more than 1 option for the longer sessions although I also have the 'Simply Being' app which I purchased with 'Relax & Rest' as a bundle. Well worth the money! Thank you 😊
I downloaded this app after realising I was getting far to stressed in a difficult period in my life. It has helped me tremendously and I listen to one of the meditations everyday now.
Great app I keep coming back to
I've used this app for over 18 months and it's really useful for finding time for resting and getting off to sleep. Its focus is on the breath and you can vary the type of sound you want, voice by itself, with natural sounds or background music. Perfect for those who have a lot on their mind and need some quiet time to rest.
