Best Meditation & Mindfulness Apps
We haven't really used this app other than for the timer, which we use multiple times every day. There are other timers we could use sure, but do they start and end with a gong?
A great mindfulness app specifically with younger generations in mind. Creating by psychologists and educators alike.
Perhaps the most popular mindfulness app. Some free content but sooner than later you'll need to start paying to continue to use it.
It does what it says on the tin. A good beginner mindfulness app.
Contains literally tens of thousands of guided meditations, all for free. It's hard to find a better free option for a meditation app.
Other Great Apps

Recommended to us as a free alternative to Amazon's Audible. You can get free audiobooks and all you need is a library card.

Great for building healthy habits.
