Our fave mindfulness apps
Prioritising our mental health is incredibly important, especially while dealing with a pandemic. We’ve found using mindfulness apps has been a great addition to our daily online yoga classes as a way to check-in and pause. Here are some of our fave apps we’ve been using…
Calm lets you tailor a mindfulness routine based on an intention you set yourself which we absolutely love. They have everything from 3 min meditations and mindfulness Masterclasses to nighttime stories read by celebs (hello, Matthew McConaughey).
An online community of meditators, Insight Timer features guided meditations, music and talks posted by experts in the realm of mindfulness. No matter how much (or little) time you have to spend on yourself, you’ll find something that works for you. Their children’s sleep tracks are also great for getting the little ones to drift off.
Headspace has one mission: to improve the health and happiness of the world. They offer incredible meditation courses that make it feel accessible for anyone starting out. Headspace is also one of the only mindfulness apps committed to advancing the field of mindfulness meditation through clinically-validated research which we think is pretty cool! If you’re unemployed or a student, you can get Headspace Plus free for a year too.
With a particular focus on managing anxiety, Shine lets you create a personalised self-care program based on your goals, complete with daily mental health support. You can also connect with other members and join their incredible digital support network!
Reflectly is a journalling app that utilises artificial intelligence to help you structure and reflect upon your daily thoughts and problems, a bit like a personal mental health companion. From improving productivity to gaining a better sense of calm, they have prompts and challenges which are fun and insightful and help along the way.
