Find Your Zen with These Meditation Apps ...


I think it’s a bit incongruous that finding Zen is meant to take you away from the stress and pressures of modern living, yet you can actually harness the power of technology to help you achieve it. It’s one of those oddities of life you can love, though. Meditation has been around for centuries. Smartphones and tablets haven’t. However, there are meditation apps that bring together the ancient and modern for our benefit. Here’s a few meditation apps to review – maybe the right one for finding your Zen is here.

Famous Quotes

Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.

Bruce Lee


Headspace Available for: iPhone/Android
Price: Free

This is a simple meditation app and ideal for beginners. I think you’ll like Andy Puddicombe – the app’s designer and narrator. He’s a former Buddhist monk and he has a very soothing voice – just right for lulling you into a meditative state for just a few minutes each day.


Relax Melodies

Relax Melodies Available for: iPhone/Android

Stuck for what music to play to get you in the zone? This app has a nice library of relaxing tracks with different themes. It’s great for meditating, but there are tunes to lull you into a deep sleep too. Just set the timer if you only want a power nap.

Just downloaded Headspace and it's very limited unless you buy a fairly expensive monthly subscription...

Lovely.. I have the breathe app too. It's awesome I share it with my clients to help them learn relaxation techniques.

I have this app called breathe that works really well because you take a survey before you begin to see where you're at and it picks good meditations for you.

Yes Breathe is a great app too

I've had great results w binaural beats in the App Store too
