The Best Meditation Apps for Everday Mindfulness

MEDITATE /  med·i·tate / : to engage in contemplation or reflection / to engage in mental exercise (such as concentration on one’s breathing or repetition of a mantra) for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness

Meditation is something we’re hearing more about every day, from expected and unexpected sources. From friends to our significant others, most everyone we know is talking about meditation. Whether used to help the busy-bee slowdown and be more present or to help you deal with a specific stressful situation, we’re into meditation and we’re excited about innovation in the space.

We’ve done both app-based and in-studio meditation (check out our full review of MNDFL NYC here), and have noticed meditation is something that requires consistency to get the most out of your practice. That’s why we love meditation apps, and there is no shortage of options on the market. Today we’re sharing with you some of the best meditation apps to help find your inner zen and bring a little more mindfulness to your everyday.
