Minimalistic (yet highly customizable) breath meditation app without ads or distractions. Including a meditation timer.
Choose from well explored breathing rhythms - or create your own - to activate your parasympathetic nervous system.
Learning how to relax is just like training a muscle (in the brain) - the more you exercise, the stronger it will become.
Build up resilience now and benefit from a clear and functional mind when undergoing stress. Become a less stressed, more compassionate, more healthy human.
Apple Health integration (mindful minutes).
If you're reading this, release your shoulders from your ears, unclench your jaw and remove your tongue from the roof of your mouth. We physically tend to hold on to stress in least noticeable ways. Relax.
This update brings several improvements. For full details, please see the release notes in the app.
Have a wonderful day!

Finally an ad-free and subscription-free app
I do like the customizations and overall but wishing for more circle icons including animated ones (The ones that aren’t animated freak me out in some way when it’s still and moving closer to my screen), more background sounds (I put mine to off because easier to focus on the transition sounds and better rhythm than just overlaying two sounds together), more transition sounds (I only liked the deep sounds that sounded like it came from a Tibetan singing bowl), and new features like able to have an option to hide the 3 dots icon when you’re doing the breathing exercises.
Also it’ll be nice if you can also have an option to hide the tutorial and the messages, it just gets repetitive after a while.
If need background noise recommendations, I can recommend white noise and all different colored noises, breeze, air cabin/airplane, gentle rain, rain sounds on a body of water, underwater, heater/fan, spaceship, outer space sounds, planet sounds (It does exist, pretty cool right?), B-17 Bomber engine sounds, faint radio chatter, etc.
I’ve tried out quite a few different meditation and breathing Apps
I like this one the best.
It’s simple. Yet has enough configuration options to customize nicely.
The sounds are nice.
The visuals are soothing.
Turns out I find guided meditation really annoying and prefer a simple breathing awareness approach.
I have found it useful and it has improved my well-being while coping with serious chronic illness.
I’m allergic to subscription model and like that I can support the developer with a one-time payment.
I expect to pay from time to time for upgrades.
My wish list:
1. Ability to set >1 reminder per day.
I am aiming for 3 seven minute sessions per day.
With another health-related app, I am able to set a target of multiple sessions, and separately set several reminders at designated times.
2. Track the multiple (daily) sessions completed on the calendar.
The other App mentioned in wish list #1 does this by having circles of 5 different colors around calendar dates to indicate completion of 1,2,3,4,5+ sessions - it’s a nice, simple, visual indicator
3. Reports (to view or to export), with totals, trends, time of day. I’m a fairly visual person and like to see things in graphs and charts
I’m checking out the other Apps from this developer.
Lowers my blood pressure by 30 points!
I have severe anxiety about having my blood pressure taken, both at my doctors and at home, which raises my systolic numbers significantly, anywhere from 148 to 158 or more, even though I’m on medication. And seeing numbers like that makes me even more anxious and it goes up even more.
So I downloaded this app and using the bird chatter sound and the sunflower I do the 4 7 8 breathing exercise before and during taking my blood pressure at home and my systolic numbers drop immediately into the 125 to 128 range! That’s a significant reduction, as much as 30 points or more!!
The free app is so simple, pleasant and easy to use along with the Omron connect app, I just keep them together on my phone. Then I print out my readings so my doctor has a record of the numbers I am getting at home.
