“My 2016 Top Three IPhone and Android Apps for Peace and Relaxation” written by Bren Koger.
There are so many health benefits to meditation including stress reduction, better sleep, and better health, but I struggle with committing to a daily practice. So I decided to make it easier to commit by using a phone app. Phone apps for meditation offer a variety of functions.
- You can time yourself to a peaceful track of music or nature sounds or if you prefer, no sound at all.
- You can track your progress and many have guided meditations for relaxation, sleep and brain entrainment.
I’ve been using these apps for a few months now with great results in staying committed to a regular meditation practice. The guided meditations are by experienced teachers in self-development and well worth checking out.
Here is information on my top three recommendations for a phone app for meditation.
Here Are My Top Three Phone Apps for Peace and Relaxation
Omvana by Mind Valley is my number one app for meditation. I have so much respect for Mind Valley as a company and its mission to educate on health and fitness.
With Omvana, you get several free guided meditations by famous authors, teachers, and spiritual celebrities like (my favorite) the 6-phase meditation by Mind Valley founder and CEO Vishen Lakhiani and a track by Gabrielle Bernstein.
It’s extensive library has hundreds of tracks with music and poetry for relaxation and sleep. You can purchase with prices ranging from $3.99-$5.99.
What I like about Calm is the beautiful blue interface and the beautiful voice of the narrator. It’s so soothing. With the app’s free “7 Days of Calm” program and the tool for a timed meditation, you can get an idea of what it’s all about before you make a purchase to get more options.
If you decide you want to get more tracks you can pay $10 per month or $39.99 per year and get access to 50 guided meditations for motivation, inner strength, peace, and gratitude. –and 10 beautiful nature scenes like fireplace and summer meadow ocean gleaming sunrise with bird water sounds and calming music. You get to choose the right background sounds for you to help you relax.
This is another app with a really soothing blue interface. Take a Break features the soothing voice of Mary Maddux. Mary and her husband Richard bring over 30 years of meditation practice and teaching to the creation of this guided meditations and music. In addition to teaching meditation, Mary has worked in both conventional and alternative settings as a counselor, stress management consultant and healing arts practitioner. Richard has played and composed music all of his life. His music is composed especially for meditation, relaxation and healing. They also have a very successful podcast called meditation oasis.
You get to try a 7-minute work break and an 13-minute stress relief for free with your choice of different backgrounds. You can listen with ocean rain, stream or music or just the sound of her voice. You can upgrade to guided meditation for health and fitness rest and sleep for $1.99-$4.99
