At Stop, Breathe & Think, we believe that taking a few minutes each day to feel the calm is as important as regular exercise. If we can help more of you regularly find peace of mind, we’re doing our part to help make the world a better place.
The Stop, Breathe and Think app is a free mindfulness, meditation and compassion-building tool that is simple, fun and easy to use. Check in to how you are thinking and feeling, and select emotions that guide you to recommended meditations.
“You can change your whole frame of mind with just a few minutes of meditation.” -Fast Company

- Deepen your awareness of your thoughts and emotions and recognize those feelings in others
- Settle yourself down and proactively manage your emotions and reactions, like stress or anxiety
- Approach people and everyday situations from the perspective of kindness and compassion.
"Here, the killer feature is the app asking you to check yourself before you start. It asks you how you're feeling mentally, physically and emotionally before you begin. It then offers... meditations customized for your current state of mind." -Lifehacker
“When people think of monitoring health, they often focus on calorie-counting, step-tracking, and other physical fitness goals, but often forget about their mental well-being. Use meditation app Stop, Breathe & Think for the daily zen tune up you might not even realize you needed.
“There are many meditation services out there, but Breathe stands out with its customization tools: it analyzes your current mood through a short survey, then leads you through guided meditations based on the results." -Cosmopolitan

really helps relax and focus
Full disclosure, I work for the organization that makes this, but I wanted to review this app anyway because I love it. Since I started using it on the last version, the thing that stands out to me the most is it just feels relaxing to use. As someone who works here I ought to say I use it every day but I'm actually not there yet in my meditation practice. That does let me see the difference though between days I use the app and days I don't, and I'm definitely more focused when I do. That's for the morning, and at night, for years I had a tough time calming down at night, and my habit used to be to have a drink or two, which could get me into a bad cycle. Since my wife is pregnant (yay!) and obviously is not drinking I decided to try joining her in abstaining, so I didn't have that crutch. Doing a meditation with this app, whether the one that's particularly for falling asleep, or the others, has been a much more healthy way to relax for me. I recommend this to friends and family a lot, especially people who like me were at the point of "yeah I would like to meditate but where should I start?" because it has a really nice flow of taking you by the hand and leading you into it.
Great tool for anyone trying to improve their life.
I started using this app several months ago to help me when I was having really bad anxiety attacks. I could open it up and start a meditation and it would break through the cyclic thoughts and give me a new focus. It was great for that.
I've continued to use it at least a few times a week- usually using the falling asleep meditation, but also focusing on change and cause and effect. I am to the point in my life where I want to be more positive and grounded, and this app really helps me with that.
These are thoughts and ideas people can preach all day- somehow when they're presented in this meditation format with a soothing speaker directing your train of thought, it seems to me it works better. You're in a more receptive state when you're doing deep breathing and relaxing your body purposefully.
This newest version of the app lets you check in after your meditation as well, to see if you have improved your mental or physical state at all.
I think it's a wonderful app for anyone that is prone to stress or anxiety and sometimes needs a sort of anchor to ground them. I think it's a great app for anyone looking to improve their moods or mindset. I think it would be a great app to use family style to teach children about mindfulness.
I thank the creators from the bottom of my heart.
This App Has Been Amazing For Me
I have experimented on and off with meditation for several years now with mixed results. However, I've been using this app consistently for about a month now and the results have been amazing for me. The guided meditations are soothing and they are specifically recommended to you based on your current emotional state. I especially love the fact that it tracks the data that you provide before and after each meditation so you can see how far you've come over time.
I've noticed the changes that meditation has made for me in my personal life and I believe that I have finally found the proper guidance that I've been looking for to make sure I continue making progress. I am by no means an expert on meditation but I can honestly say that this app has helped me tremendously in learning how to properly meditate. I highly recommend it.
