A complete set of tools lovingly designed to support your commitment to practice mindfulness daily. We make it easy to fit meditation into your daily routine to get its benefits such as reduced stress/anxiety, better sleep, mange pain and increase performance.
You have full control over reminders and daily routines that break your daily practice into small but highly effective and digestible mindful pauses, lessons and practices.
Daily lessons help to refine and tune your personal path to peace. The Healthkit integrated timer supports building your mindful minutes practice. And the “Lifelog” captures your own journal to discover insights.
“This app is like my best friend. I feel like it asks me how I’m doing? How am I feeling? What mood am I in?...The alerts, the reminders, the pauses [let] you be still for a moment. Very highly recommend this app!”
- Joeykcmo (iTunes review)
"I am bipolar and anxiety is a constant struggle for me. I started mindfulness a few months ago after my new therapist recommended it & found the breathing exercises helpful but really easy to forget or ignore.
This app has reminders, guides you through the meditation techniques & the best part is the pause button. When I start feeling tense I just take a little pause and get my breathing under control. Having the images to view while breathing activates more of my mind freeing the anxious thoughts. The reminders can be set for whenever or how often I may need them which helps me return to the moment when I don't even realize I'm tense.
I highly recommend this to anyone who suffers from anxiety or just wants to live a more mindful, present life."

What users are saying:
“One of the very few apps in which behavioral science and design come together.” -Roger Vilardaga, PhD, Clinical Psychology
“I've tried several meditation/mindfulness apps and this one has everything I've been looking for. It also happens to be the best designed app in this category I've seen.” -ForgetPerfect (iTunes review)
“While I know there are no ‘quick fixes’ when it comes to kids, this app is as close to one as I've found. I began the lessons to help deal with stress at work, and my 5th grader wanted to know what the audio reminders were about. I explained and know he's doing the lessons with me. They are working wonders on our frustration tolerance during homework and work! As soon as we start to feel that tension build, we remind each other of what we've been learning and practicing, take a moment, and regroup.” -John-546 (iTunes review)
Major update: New “Today” screen, “Now” cards and reminders fit Mindfulness easily into your daily routine.
Try adding new reminders or activities to your Morning, Day or Night routine that link to your favorite programs, tracks or pauses.
Throughout the day you’ll see the most relevant “Now Cards” from your Today screen read to complete. They’ll update based on your Morning, Day and Night routine settings and what you’ve already done.
For those using our meditation timer, we’ve moved that to the upper right side of the homescreen.
We’re also about to launch premium content in the EXPLORE section of the app with more on its way!
There are a few other changes you may be happy to discover like a dedicated reminders screen, a simpler account screen and a self narrative screen that allows you to track things like positive and negative beliefs. Let us know what else you’d like to track firstname.lastname@example.org.
All in all we’re trying to simplify the app while increasing the control you have in personalizing it around your unique daily life.
May you find peace, love and happiness in all that are you are and do daily :-)

Ratings and Reviews
So far the best for me
I’ve tried different meditation apps and so far this is the one that suits me best. I like it starts slowly with beginners who just start to practice mindfulness. I also enjoy how they set a morning intention every day so I can be more concentrated. I read the reviews and saw some complaints about the reminder function. In fact it can be manually set to off. Personally speaking, I actually enjoy the reminders. I have anxiety and tend to worry too much, so to me, the daily random reminders are really important so that I won’t drown in my own thoughts and get back to present. I also like the interface, simple and natural. There are still some flaws like it’s a bit complicated to find the settings I need but generally I really like the app.
I saw the developer replied that they will keep the free features and release premium version beyond these functions. I personally would love to try a premium version. But I still sincerely hope the free version will continue and really appreciate the team’s well intention to make it more accessible to more people. On top of the bills for therapy, it’s a really appreciative gesture for you to keep it free.
I’ve recommended it to my friends. Thank you for developing this app. Also, I’m wondering if you are considering versions in other languages. I know people who are fighting depression and anxiety but don’t speak English, and I wish they can benefit from this app too.

Tl;dr: ADHD, Self-Destructive-- App gives me tools to cope
I have ADHD and I'm a student at university. I don't know anything about mindfulness and have never been the "meditate and eat quinoa" type, and I'm suspicious of anything that feels like it might involve a chakra.
This app, however, has been wonderful.
It explains the most basic tenets of mindfulness in clear language: how to deep breath, how to focus, etc. each lesson is separated into days, and each day has a little challenge for you to do in addition to the lesson ("focus on one part of your body today"). It's all very clear and methodical with nary a crystal in sight.
I highly recommend this to anyone who self-harms or takes all their tensions that feel too big out on their bodies. I can get so stressed in all I have to do that I just pace around feeling overwhelmed.
Just today, instead of hurting myself just to get some focus, I instead remembered the breathes. Each time I had that impulse I stopped and took two breaths. I felt better, and could clear my head. This has been something that I've never been able to do before, and I'm grateful for these techniques.
All in all, this is a lovely easy to use app. My only complaint is the instructor speaks too frequently during the lessons. I find it distracting (again: ADHD) I wish there was an adjuster bar to customize how many seconds she takes between phrases.
I would have given this app 5 stars
I love this app. However since the update, it doesn't work properly. It glitches during pauses which causes me to hyperventilate. I do a lesson, the voice cuts out twenty seconds from the end and I don't get credit for the lesson. It's all becoming very frustrating and that's the opposite reason I chose this app in the first place. So don't get me wrong, before the update, this app worked perfectly. I miss the way it did. I actually lost 26 days of progress after the update as well.
Customer service was excellent in helping me find what the issues were in my experience. I'm using an older iPhone, which I'm upgrading next week. So the issues I was experiencing weren't due to the app. Customer support was prompt, professional and very helpful. I'm very happy with this app as a choice for mindfulness. Thank you for the outstanding service!
