5 iOS or Android Apps to Learn Meditation this Summer

Reduce stress, stimulate your cognitive system, reduce the pain associated with muscle tension, and even boost your immune defenses: many scientific studies give real merit to meditation when practiced on a regular and voluntary basis.

Only when you know absolutely nothing about this discipline and you do not have the means to pay a specialized trainer, how to use it? Several mobile apps can help you get started.

In their free versions, they often offer you a limited experience (up to a certain number of exercises, or for a predetermined duration). But, firstly, they still represent a great opportunity to find out if meditation is right for you.

Here are 4 particularly useful apps for this purpose, which you can even use at the same time to immerse yourself more intensely in this universe while on vacation. It is up to you to decide if you want to immortalize the ritual afterwards.

Petit BamBou: 10 minutes a day to feel better

The Petit BamBou app adapts to our 100 km/h lifestyle: according to its developers, 10 minutes a day is enough to experience its benefits. By downloading it to your phone, you will receive the first 8 sessions free of charge, including videos and texts to help you switch off and “cultivate your serenity.”

The program combines several disciplines such as sophrology, positive psychology, or the concept of mindfulness, which is also referred to by the English term mindfulness. If you really like the concept, you can get unlimited access to all classes with a 6month subscription for 41.99 euros: this is a cost, but it is still much lower than courses held in the city with a professional.

Petit BamBou is a meditation service that offers breathing exercises and mindfulness meditation. Most of the exercises are available for free.

Serenity: 7 Days of Free Meditation Basics

With a very refined interface, serenity app, as the name suggests, inspires peace of mind. It is based on several meditation and mindfulness techniques, which, according to its creators, are aimed at achieving inner peace and even “happiness in life.”

The free part lasts 7 days and offers a daily introductory lesson for those who want to fall asleep easier, reduce stress, meditate effectively in a short time, and for those who want to teach their children the basics.

If a test week is not enough for you to make a decision, you can order an additional subscription for one month for 5.49 euros (longterm subscriptions are available for the most motivated).
Among the “little extras” that might convince you to choose Serenity, we find functionality to set up daily reminders to reach your goals, the ability to track your progress in real time with graphs, and even compatibility with Apple Health.

Serenity: Guided Meditation invites you to discover, learn the basics and practice mindfulness meditation to feel more calm, serene and therefore less stressed.

Antistress: funny and unusual items for relaxation

Of all the applications we have chosen, Antistress is perhaps the most unexpected: its principle oscillates between a game and a relaxation method. Specifically, the program takes with it about fifty toys that can be used for free and without restrictions.

Those who are truly mindful seekers will prefer a relaxing water lily pond, while the very nervous ones will appreciate games in which you can press buttons to make repetitive and soothing sounds, a bit like a ball. fingers.

Some sounds, like chalk on a blackboard or a hammer, seem more like a game than an excuse to relax. But there are also more soothing modules, around the sea or psychedelic images associated with light music.

What we are really looking for here is not pure and heavy meditation, but just relaxation with everyday items available at any time on the phone… An app that is more “fun” than “zen”, in short.

Antistress is an application that offers you to relax with relaxing games on the screen of your smartphone or tablet. Download for Android or iOS (iPhone, iPad).

Respirelax+: learning to breathe

If breathing is an automatic reflex from birth that we don’t have to learn, it can somehow be used for purposes other than delivering oxygen to our blood. The Repirelax+ app will help you learn how to breathe to calm your heartbeat or relax.

The free app with an easytouse interface displays a bubble that rises and falls to indicate the phases of inhalation and exhalation. It also contains a user manual and settings to personalize your experience or turn on relaxing music.

To help you relax, why not learn how to breathe with the RespiRelax+ app? Several modes are available depending on your needs: training, balance, relaxation, dynamic.
