Have trouble falling asleep? Try this 4-7-8 technique. Inhale for 4 through your nose, hold for 7, exhale for 8 out of your mouth.

Equal Breathing (4-4)
A pranayama practice called Sama Vritti, this breath can help take your mind off the racing thoughts or whatever might be distracting you. Inhale for 4, exhale for 4. All through your nose. (Try a 6 or 8 count, once you feel comfortable.)

Measured Breathing (4-1-7)
A handy stress-reducing practice that can be done anywhere, anytime. Inhale for 4, hold for 1, exhale for 7. All through your nose.

Triangle Breathing (4-4-4)
Another great technique that can help alleviate anxiety or stress. Imagine a triangle with equal sides. Inhale for 4, exhale for 4, pause for 4. Repeat.

Mr_Moz ,

This does the job. Simple to use, customizable.

This really has helped in so many ways: panic issues, insomnia, and great for my beginning attempts with meditation. This serves like a "metronome" for the body and mind. I love how you can customize some features, because not everyone is the same. Then the developer freely makes this available to all? Beautiful...especially during these stressful times. Perhaps include an optional "tip jar" in the settings? Generosity and talent needs to be recognized. Thank you.

Almost perfect

I love the simplicity of the app. The visual is nice except for the second accent color - unnecessary, would love if it were eliminated. Also would prefer to be able to have color options. Honestly grey is best or a muted color in my option, the current electric colors are too stimulating. Options would be ideal. There’s another breathing app i like that is a sphere that gets larger and smaller and it’s all grey scale which I love, but this app has the major benefit of all the other settings including setting specific times for inhales, holds and exhales. Fantastic. If the color could change and the second accent color removed it would be PERFECT

Developer Response ,

We've got some good news - you can now select from several alternative color themes, including a dark/muted theme as you requested! Please let us know what you think and we'd appreciate it if you feel our app is now 5-star worthy!

❤️ Love you Developers!!

I was so anxious to write a review for this beautiful, simple app that I had to meditate for a few minutes, calm myself down and now here I am.

Straightforward app with neat graphics. This app should be an editor’s choice. I wonder why it’s not being seen anywhere?? I got to know about the app after using every single app on the appstore. I used atleast 17 or 19 apps including “Calm”.

I would recommend Calm for the meditation purposes, but the breath balloon in Calm is very limited. This app comes with the eye-catching/engaging graphics, usability with ease, in just one dollar? No money grabbing techniques and distractions. Please I’m requesting that the developers that they get a little more support in terms of money by marketing this useful app more and more. More people should know about this sexiness.

This app plus calm completes my “Mindfulness” hunger in a day. Hurrayyyy.....
