Mindfulness means noticing and paying attention to what is going on in the present moment, without passing judgment on it. Mindfulness has been shown to be effective for reducing stress, improving emotional balance, increasing self-awareness, helping with anxiety and depression, and coping more effectively with chronic pain.

Mindfulness Coach 2.0 was developed to help Veterans, Service members, and others learn how to practice mindfulness. The app provides a gradual, self-guided training program designed to help you understand and adopt a simple mindfulness practice. Mindfulness Coach also offers a library of information about mindfulness (for example “What is Mindfulness?”, “How to Anchor Your Attention”), 12 audio-guided mindfulness exercises and a growing catalog of additional exercises available for free download, goal-setting and tracking, a mindfulness mastery assessment to help you track your progress over time, customizable reminders, and access to other support and crisis resources. Mindfulness Coach is free, doesn’t take or share any of your personal information, and doesn’t require add-on purchases.

Mindfulness Coach was created by VA’s National Center for PTSD.

Made by humans.

I cannot comment on the efficacy of the app itself, for technical reasons. However, the prompt and personal response from the developers made me feel valued and cared for. They read my feedback and took time to discuss it with me, with humility and understanding. It's surprisingly rare to connect with developers (or any organisation) at a human level and I'm grateful for the excellent customer support. They turned a problem into a positive experience and that speaks volumes about the app's authenticity and good intentions.

Life changing

I love this app. So much so that I’m actually taking the time to write my first ever app review. Learning to be mindful has transformed how I deal with negative or intrusive thoughts, anxiety, as well as optimizing my own relaxation time. This app was recommended to me, and I in turn have recommended it to others. To the developers and contributors, thank you.

Must download

This is the very best mindfulness app I’ve come across. Professionally produced and effective. Thanks to developers
