Description

The Calm app utilizes scenery and meditation to help induce feelings of calmness and relaxation. The ‘Meditation’ feature introduces novice users to meditation and may also help experienced meditators improve their approaches. The makers of Calm stress the importance of a healthy sleep schedule in promoting inner peace and physical movements in improving mental health. They also note the role music can play in easing our minds and improving our focus and sleep.

 

Overview

The Calm app identifies its four focus categories as the most essential elements to achieving mindful relaxation. These four categories include meditation, sleep, body, and music.

 

“The Calm app utilizes scenery and meditation to help induce feelings of calmness and relaxation.”

 

Meditation

The in-app instructions show how mindfulness and a focus on breathing are two primary goals of meditation. Calm teaches the necessity to remove stressful thoughts and focus on the simplicity of breathing where you are to turn down the volume of your busy life.

 

Sleep

While we all sleep, there are distinct differences between healthy and unhealthy sleep patterns. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of these differences. This is where the educational information from Calm teaches patterns and behaviors for a restful night so you can be ready to tackle the day ahead.

 

Body

Calm expands on the connection between mind and body by offering video lessons for mindful movement. It even provides gentle stretching techniques to prepare your body when you hope to relax your mind.

 

Music

The sounds of your surroundings can make a significant impact on how easily you are able to relax. Calm recognizes this truth and offers exclusive music that is carefully selected to help you focus, relax, and sleep.

Just like the name suggests you experience a different kind of calmness when using this app. The music on this app calms me down and it helps me when I have had a bad day. Helps me sleep well and the colors on the app bring a great feeling of happiness when I open the app. It has been a great guide through my meditation.

Pros

I just started to use this app, the first thing I noticed was the calming sounds and the calm colors. I myself started doing meditation daily and i think as a meditator myself it’s a great app to get tips and just to help you meditate. All the train your mind sessions are recorded with great quality and alot of calmth. I can definitely recommend this to people who need a little push in the right direction and who are searching for a way to relax without having to go places.

Pros

Great quality and easy to use

Cons

You have to register a debit card in the trial version.

Very interesting app! There's a lot of good stuff in here that can help you relax your mind and body, and help you achieve focus. I really loved the music they have on here, or sounds, because it was very mind relaxing. I also like the meditation advice embedded in the app as well.

Pros

Good music, interesting advice for meditation

Cons

Requires you to provide your debit card in order to do the 7 day trial. I thought we could still do the trial without having to provide that information.
