What's New in Version 2.7.7
We’ve made some big improvements to your Profile screen. We’ve also made starting meditations faster by using a smarter download mechanism, plus other improvements. Enjoy!
While you’re waiting for the update to install, try this simple practice: Get comfortable, close your eyes, and turn your attention to the breath. Breathe in and out in a natural rhythm and begin to consciously identify the in-breath and the out-breath as you breathe. When you breathe in, know that this is your in-breath. When you breathe out, know that this is your out-breath. Continue this cycle for as long as you need to.
Great meditation app!!
Awesome app! I had been waking up with a lot of negative thoughts lately, and my anxiety has been at an all time high not allowing me to feel like I could achieve much. This app is a godsend. I've had the year subscription since July and I've used it sporadically since then, but the daily Calm, calming Anxiety, and Deep Sleep meditation along with the Sleep Cycle App have been helping me to wake up with a healthier peace of mind that lasts all day. Becoming my first and last habit of the day after brushing my teeth to keep a positive frame of mind and I love that they show a history of what you've done with the day and time. I love that you can access the daily Calm from the home screen, but the daily scene is just a picture that moves. I think it should be more like their other scenes like a looping video with sound: rainforest or a park in the middle of the day. Anyway, it definitely helps me to appreciate the little things!
Worth every single penny
I'll admit that I was skeptical about this app at first. I'd tried several others and never found one that I liked. Some had annoying music or sounds and none had really great guided meditations. Calm is completely different... it has several options and fantastic guided meditations and background music in the free app that got me totally hooked. I paid for the annual subscription within a week and I haven't looked back. To have a new meditation every single day and a slew of options for guided, unguided, timed, and untimed meditations for the price of a cup of coffee a month?! Total no-brainer. I literally can't wait to meditate each day, and as a result, I'm sleeping better, experiencing less anxiety, and feeling greater peace, focus, and clarity. Thank you for this app!!
Has helped me so much…
For many months now, I have been using this app. I believe the benefits are amazing. It has helped me tremendously with my anxiety and stress. I have learned to use the breathing exercises when I'm at work when I get anxious or stressed. I also tried the sleeping meditations on nights that I had problems with an overactive mind. It works great! You are listening and concentrating to the meditation so you relax and the stress of the day melts away and helps to fall asleep easier.
I look forward to taking the time to do them every morning.
I did the trial, then when it was up I did not hesitate to purchase the full package. I love it! Give it a try. Look at all the positive reviews. Most likely you will be posting yours too!😊
