Singles are bite-sized meditations you can play anytime, even on the go.

Clear your mind with animated breathing exercises, and lower your stress, find energy, and increase your focus with quick Relax, Energize, and Concentrate meditations—and many more.
You'll rest easy with our Wind Down activity and Sleep meditation. Wind Down is a first-of-its-kind interactive that uses bilateral stimulation and controlled breathing to help you relax before bed and find more restful sleep.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app but the sessions go by too quickly
I really enjoy this app. However I was disappointed when I unlocked the year of it and it seems I still can’t adjust my sessions to be any longer than 10 minutes. 5 or 10 minutes are the only options. Is this going to change? Usually I’m just getting settled and my mind is only just staring to quiet as she’s asking me to open my eyes. Also when she asks to count your breaths up to 5 and start over, I rarely get to 5 counts before she’s on to the next exercise. I’d really like to see this app offer 15 or 20 minute sessions with more time in between each of the prompts. Otherwise I’m wondering if I can get a refund because 10 minutes just isn’t enough for me. The app is great otherwise, I love that it’s personalized and tracks your skills and how long you’ve done each of them but I find I meditate much more deeply after 10 minutes of getting my mind to settle down first.
Improved my life, saved me money on therapy
I have never written an app review and I genuinely hate doing it, so you know I really mean this one! I have suffered from PTSD and anxiety for most of my life. I have been in and out of therapy when I could afford it, working mostly on grounding techniques and guiding my thoughts. After using this app for three weeks, I can see a marked improvement in my ability to do both of these things in the moment. Big things and small things that would have stressed me out or made me have thoughts of self doubt before have just slid off my back for the past couple of weeks. I am so thankful to the creators of this app and so happy I heard about it through Elevate. It has truly made a difference in my quality of life!
So happy with this app 🧘🏻♀️
I downloaded this after I found out about it from the Elevate app I use and I’m so happy with it so far. I’m only on my 3rd day meditating with Balance, but so far, I really appreciate that it’s a customizable approach to meditation. A lot of other meditation apps are general and not as personal, but this one factors in what your goal of meditating is. For me, it’s focus and mood enhancing. So, it takes that into consideration along with your age and meditation experience and creates a meditation program for you. I really like how the app also has a meditation tracker too, at the end of every session it’ll fill in a bubble for the day of the week you meditated, which helps keeps me accountable. Anyway, really dope app and gentle guidance, so ya girl is happy.
