Our smartphones are constantly dinging and ringing, alerting us of notifications all day long. And donâ€™t get me started on how much time we waste looking at all of these (mostly unimportant) notifications. Sometimes it can make smartphones feel more stressful and annoying than a helpful tool. Does anyone else just slightly miss the days before smartphones? But it doesnâ€™t have to feel that wayâ€¦ in fact, our phones can be a tool of relaxation!
In Step Mindfulness Meditation Apps
If thereâ€™s one type of app that I would recommend to anyone itâ€™s got to be a meditation app. Anyone can benefit from meditation, and in a world where weâ€™re constantly on-the-go, it can be nice to have a relaxation practice that can go with us! When you find a few moments when youâ€™re not doing something (say on the subway or waiting in line), youâ€™ve got a tool to help you take advantage of it.
There are plenty of meditation apps out there though, so which should you choose? Thereâ€™s Headspace, Calm, and so many others.
One brilliant app to checkout is Buddhify. Why is it so great? No hidden or additional costsâ€”download the app once and youâ€™re done! No fees to unlock meditations or â€œpremium features.â€
Buddhify currently offers over 80 custom guided meditations each tailored to wherever you are and whatever youâ€™re doing. Plus, it syncs with Appleâ€™s HealthKit, keeping all of your meditation sessions and other health information right there in one place!
