It’s no secret that stress affects us all to some degree; whether you’re a high-powered CEO or simply trying to get a couple of copywriting articles done for the best new apps around, stress is ever-present in our lives. It can be argued (probably successfully) that the advent of digital technology has added even more anxiety and stress to our already incredibly teeming lives, but fortunately, it’s that very same technology that can now offer the most over-burdened among us sweet reprieve.
This release comes in the form of a simple and elegantly designed app called BetterMe: Meditation. It’s free, it’s serene, and its goal is to improve your life. It’s also out now for iOS and Android.
BetterMe is designed to appeal to people who previously didn’t think they could meditate. It doesn’t take a lot of commitment, and despite the religious stigma around some forms of meditation, it’s completely devoid of that kind of stuff too.
All it asks of you is to take five minutes from your day to focus fully on your breathing. That’s it! This simple exercise will help you in many ways, bringing plenty of benefits to your day-to-day life; from dealing with anxiety to sleeping better, taking five minutes to slow your breathing can seriously impact your physical and mental well-being.
And what a pleasure it is to do with this app. The simple, engaging design is a perfect way to get you in the mood for meditation, featuring an expanding and contracting circle that moves with your breathing. There’s also a timer so that you can keep track of your breathing regulation, and adjust if necessary.
It also gives you something to focus on, so you can drown out the hustle and bustle of modern life, and get on with your exercises. Speaking of which, another great advantage of the app is that you can utilise it on-the-go, meaning you can take a few minutes to calm yourself down no matter where you are in the world. Board room, waiting room, dressing room, plane, train, automobile; the location doesn’t matter, BetterMe’s got you covered.
Ultimately, this app is a great way to reduce stressful symptoms and promote better c. It’s perfect for beginners, and doesn’t require any prior knowledge of meditation.
You can jump straight in and start availing of the considerable benefits in no time at all. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably got a few minutes to spare; why not head over to the App Store or Google Play and start right now?
