Mindfulness means paying attention, on purpose, to whatever is going on in the present moment without passing judgment on it. Mindfulness has been shown to be effective for reducing stress, improving emotional balance, increasing self-awareness, helping with anxiety and depression, and coping more effectively with chronic pain.

This app was developed to help Veterans, Service members, and others learn how to practice mindfulness. It offers exercises, information, and a tracking log so that you can optimize your practice.

Mindfulness Coach was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology.

Give this a try! It's worth it!


Visual and/or audio! Body scan is great, I use it when I need help falling asleep!! Breathing tool (9minutes) is by far the best I've found for daily/nightly relaxation!!! Many other meditation options available on this free app for ANYONE to use!!!!
Remember, you can modify your positions to fit your needs. The breathing says to sit, but I lay. The body scan is longer, so depending on what I need it for (meditation or sleeping), I sit or lay down.

Good idea; poor implementation


I love the idea of this, however in my experience with this app the guided meditations weren't much help. I wanted to practice mindful eating it provided the raisin example, which I have done before but it wasn't much help. I also think the body scan is too long and since I have trouble sleeping and am often exhausted I tended to fall asleep during this practice. I would like to try other programs, but have not looked into any as this is the only mindfulness app I have used this far.



I am only a military veteran's wife using this app but let me say...this is a wonderful resource!! The purpose this app serves is beyond fantastic....its praiseworthy!! I can only imagine the level of healing that can begin in someone struggling with mental illness from any source. Thank you to everyone involved in dreaming, believing and developing this app!
