Very helpful

I don't remember how long I've been using this app but I'm grateful to have found this app. I just downloaded as many meditation/stress relief apps out there to help me get through my days and initially I didn't think I would keep this for long and actually use it as often but it's one of my top five go-to's now. It's pretty simple and useful and doesn't need fancy features or anything. I usually do the 13 minute stress relief with the stream option and it honestly helps me through though moments of anxiety, fear and panic, stress, and (I just did moments ago) to meditate on and relieve anger and frustration! Thank you creators and looking forward to updates!

Nice break!

I really like this app because it offers a short and sweet progressive session to help restore calm and breathing. I've used this many times during the day, but also for those middle-of-the-night moments when I needed to turn my thoughts off. Every time I've used it, I have left feeling much more relaxed and refocused (or unfocused at night) and I have been able to continue with my day in a better state of being.

Quality sounds. Great for work break.

Finally an effective work break meditation. This triggers the sympathetic nervous system by getting you to breath, be mindful of your breathing and connecting with your mind, body and emotions all in just a few minutes. I've been using this for a couple months now and like pavlov's dog, the minute I turn it on I begin to calm down faster and faster, being more in tune with myself.
