Simple and perfect

I have downloaded several meditation apps but they have all ended up getting deleted by me except this one. A lot of meditations ask you to imagine things or feel sensations and that just distracts me and makes me more stressed. I love that you don't have to 'do' anything with this, just let the calming voice and music wash over you. I often use it to put me to sleep as I have a very active mind and I also use it as a 'power nap' ie when I am exhausted and need a 20 minute nap because I can never get to sleep quick enough for naps because my mind is too busy. I have also used this as a quick recharge when I have a terrible headache or am exhausted and need to go out or back to work. 5 to 10 minutes and I feel so much better!

Does the job beautifully

I got onto this app after discovering the Meditation Oasis podcast, which I found in a desperate moment and have been using for a few years. I find them so helpful because the process is simple, the instructions and voice open and unobtrusive, and the length of meditations just right. This meditation app is great because Just Being is one of my go-to sessions on the podcast and the Meditation Oasis app but here I can just jump in from my home screen and choose the length of time. They’ve clearly listened to what people would need. I’ve tried a lot of apps and the only stayers are this and Buddhify.

Simply the best

IMHO this is the smoothest key for those seeking the door to the inner world. My life has been coloured by ADHD which makes for an interesting wildly imaginatively brain. Until I came upon Simply Being there were so many distractions along the way to focussed peaceful meditation that I rarely made it to the door let alone enter. Using simply Being has changed that and now I make my way to the door with the key pass through regularly. There's just something about it.
Highly recommended for other ADHD'ers and those having difficulty in relaxation and meditation.
