If you are brand new to meditation, there are many meditation apps that can help you get started. Let’s have a look at some of the apps to decide which is the best meditation app and also learn a little bit about what they have to offer.

Calm

This was actually the top-rated meditation app back in 2017 and it’s still as popular today. As soon as you open the app, you will be hit with an instant sense of calm due to the relaxing sounds including falling rain and the gentle tweeting of birds. Calm is jam packed full of different guided meditation practices. Whether you are looking for a long session or are strapped for time and just want a quick five-minute meditation, the app has it all. While you will need to pay for some features on the app, there are several free sessions, including the very popular “7 Days of Sleep”.

Insight Timer

This is a cool meditation app that connects users all over the world to each other on a spiritual journey. Five million people from all over the world are using this app and when you open up the app, you will actually be told how many of those are meditating right now. There are so many different teachers on this app and there are meditation/mindfulness practices on everything that you can think of. Whether you want to improve your mental health, your relationships, stress or more – there are many different options to choose from. Insight Timer recently launched courses which are $4.99 each but these are definitely worth the money if there is something in particular that you want to work on.

Meditation Studio

In this more traditional meditation app, you can have live sessions with a licensed psychologist. Here you will be guided through ten days of meditation, designed to help you improve a number of things and all of these are centered around you learning to manage your breath. There is a “discover” series on the app which has a number of different useful practices. Meditation Studio is known to be very effective but is geared more towards individuals who have at least some experience with meditation.

Headspace

Perfect for newbies and really hot right now is the app called Headspace. This is all guided and you can practice different things depending on how you feel on a day to day basis. There is a free 10-day trial so you can decide if you like it before you commit to a subscription.

A Note from GR8NESS

These are just some of the meditation apps available to download online, but you will discover so many more if you do your research. Meditation can have such a positive impact on your life and it’s perfect if you have been feeling lost lately. Try some of these for yourself and you will instantly feel a positive shift in yourself.
