Editors’ Notes

When life moves so fast that you can’t seem to find time to focus on you, the meditation and mindfulness app Shine can help light the way. It does so through a series of motivations, daily texts, audio clips, and longer-term projects, all of which focus on self-reflection yet keep things satisfyingly upbeat.

A suggestion

I have tried multiple meditation apps before, but this, by far, is the best! Been using this for more than two weeks now and I love it so much. I can’t live without it. Please add more content and PLEASE make a widget for iOS 14!!
