Ratings and Reviews
I am not big on reviewing apps..But I couldn’t think of a better one to make an exception for. This is my first day using it, and when my pain level started at a meh along with my emotional level at a meh/poor, I did not expect any changes… However I listened to about four of the meditations after an incredibly stressful day at work, and I can honestly say my anxiety is somewhat sub-subsiding... in order to understand the importance of this, you would need to know how long and much I’ve struggled with diagnosis’s and meds for things like: panic disorder, anxiety disorder, PTSD, insomnia and the list goes on… I am so incredibly grateful and hopeful that this app will be the change I have been looking so desperately for. Anything is better than more meds... it’s one thing to feeling anxious but totally another for people to notice it on a daily basis… It’s embarrassing, and truly makes me feel helpless. I look forward to trying this out repeatedly to learn more about CBT… Which was recommended to me while in a partial hospitalization program for a mental break down...Unfortunately, the only day I missed was the one on CBT training, however they talked about it’s importance so much... I can’t wait to see what more sessions bring… And if you’ve actually read to the end of this review, you must be thinking about it enough to just download it... maybe it’s not for you, maybe will be for me… But something has got to give, and I’m incredibly hopeful.
A rare review
I know it’s cliche to say, but I rarely share reviews on apps. This app, however, is changing my life in such a positive way, I feel compelled to tell others. Get it! Try it! I’ve been told for years by doctors and counselors to try meditation for helping to alleviate stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. I’ve even been told to meditate by various psychics (if you’re one who believes in such). Aside from trying it at a workshop or class here and there, I resisted, assuming as a busy mom of three kids I couldn’t possibly ever fit in quiet time for meditation. Then, about a month ago, amid med changes that were causing debilitating panic symptoms, I resorted to trying meditation as a rock-bottom last resort. I tried a couple apps and online videos, but this one is the one I kept coming back to. The short meditations were easy to fit in after all! And the simple body/mind check-in before and after meditations helps me see immediate progress. Maybe it’s my inner child or visually-focused artist, but the sticker rewards even make me smile and motivate me! The free version is totally sufficient but within a week, I was hooked and had subscribed to get the full benefits. If you’re resisting meditation like I was, get this app and get started! You won’t regret it!
Love this app, but here’s a suggestion
This app is absolutely amazing. I never go premium on anything, but I couldn’t help but make an exception for this one. I use this app almost every day, and I owe so much of my growth to it. As much as I love it, there is one thing that I hope will change. When I check in and add my emotions late at night/early in the morning, the first session that is recommended without fail is Falling Asleep. I’m a night owl, so most of my activity occurs in the later hours of the night, including meditation. I don’t want a session that will help me fall asleep unless the emotions I add suggest I need it (majority of the time they don’t). Any other time of day, my recommended sessions are always based on the emotions I add EXCEPT if I add emotions that actually do suggest I need a falling asleep session. The point is, I don’t want my sessions to be based around the time of day I’m checking in. If I check in at 4 AM because that’s when I’m feeling productive and want to get my compassion on, I want my recommendations based on that feeling, not that it’s 4 AM and most of the world is in bed at that time so I should be too. It’s frustrating, because there’s really no point in me checking in to add my emotions if I’m just going to be suggested the same session each time. I might as well just skip all of it and hand pick my own sessions.
