Helps reduce anxiety

I have anxiety, especially when it comes to doctors appointments. This app helps to keep you on track for deep breathing and helps reduce feelings of anxiousness. I have found that just 5 minutes a couple times a day really seems to help! I will be using this before my next doctor appointment and look forward to seeing if it decreases my anxiety levels. It’s an easy-to-use, no-brainer to download app. Thanks!

Super simple breathing app

If you’re into the 4-7-8 breathing method, this is the app for you.

Great app

So simple to use without all that mental counting, which is contrary to relaxation & distracting.
