Become more mindful and compassionate using our Meditation Guide. Check-in daily, track your progress, and feel the calm.
The SB&T App is a free mindfulness, meditation and compassion building tool for middle-school students, high-school students, and adults. The App is simple, fun, and easy to use. Check-in to how you are thinking and feeling, and select emotions that guide you to recommended choices from 15 age-appropriate mindfulness and compassion-building audio meditations in a prioritized list.
Scientific evidence has shown that you can develop kindness and compassion by focusing on these attitudes through the practice of mindfulness and meditation. By using the App, you can develop skills that support academic and professional achievement, in addition to more positive interactions and relationships, by learning to:
deepen your awareness of your thoughts and emotions and recognize those feelings in others,
settle yourself down and proactively manage your emotions and reactions,
approach people and everyday situations from the perspective of kindness and compassion.
The App is available to students and adults where they need it most – accessed anywhere and at anytime via iPhone and iPad. For educators, the App easily integrates into classrooms, extracurricular activities, and mindfulness zones on our partner-school campuses, and is in the form that teens like to use – technology that has become deeply embedded into their daily routine. By becoming kind towards oneself and aware of personal thoughts and emotions, students learn to be aware and tolerant of others, and interact with the communities they inhabit from a perspective of understanding and with a sense of being positively connected.

Best meditation app, I use it daily
This is hands down one of my favorite apps that I have on my iPhone and iPad. It is a great guided meditation app, allowing you to input your current physical, mental and emotional state and then provides a recommendation of type of meditations you choose to beat suite the current situation. Currently there are two extra in app purchase that give you additional guided meditation sessions. You don't need to buy them to get a great experience but after you've used the app for a little while you'll crave more. I've used several meditation apps, and used various streaming services that offer guided meditation albums, but this is still the best. It's simple, clean user interface, and even gives you badges (if your into that kind of thing).
Wonderful "check-in's" & short meditations
I was looking for something that would provide short meditations and this is fits my need beautifully! The app asks you to assess you current state, which takes about 15 seconds and then provides a list of relevant meditations. There is a good group of meditations that come standard with this app, including one that is just sounds of nature and another that is a self-meditation timer. Additional meditations are available for purchase. I find that just doing the 15 minute check-in is very useful. I add a meditation (1-5 minutes) as time allows.
I've already recommended this to others and will continue to do so! Well done!!!
Great for first time meditators!
So I tried a bunch of meditation apps before finally finding this one. I really like the daily check ins, especially when it asks you how you're feeling. The meditations are then recommended based on your check in. The meditations are pretty great. They do have more of a focus on kindness & positivity towards others which is a good thing. I do wish they'd have more meditations about self love & things of that nature. I did write them about that & they said they'd be adding more meditations later this year! All in all I think this is a great app, especially if you're trying to start a daily meditation practice.
