The Calm app utilizes beatific scenery and meditation to help induce feelings of calmness and relaxation. The ‘Meditation’ feature introduces novice users to the wonderful mindful exercise of meditation and may also help experienced meditators improve their approach. The makers of Calm stress the importance of a healthy sleep schedule in promoting inner peace and pay homage to physical movements in improving mental health. They couldn’t forget the role music plays in easing our minds and improving our focus and sleep.
When attempting to reach a calm state of mind, too many components may produce the opposite of your intentions. This is not an issue with the Calm app, as its four focus categories easily separate what the makers believe are the most essential elements to achieving mindful relaxation. Mindfulness is widely used in meditation and thus serves as the first feature in Calm. It’s difficult to relax when you don’t practice healthy sleep habits. If you are unsure if your sleep is healthy, Calm explains the differences and how to achieve optimal nighttime recuperation. While becoming calm manifests in your mind, this app sheds light on how physical movements can attribute to mental serenity. Calm even offers carefully selected music choices to help you into your much sought after state of relaxing peace.
