    Meditation made simple in just 10 minutes a day

    I heard very good reviews about this app.
    • Brona Molnarovait's only impossible until it's done

      This is the first and only app I pay for :D Sometimes it can feel like a chore to do stuff that is good for you and this app takes that away for me. I teaches you gently and pleasantly and Ive been able to stick to it and understand more about how minds work. It helped me stop biting my nails.

    I think this app offers the most value if you are not willing to spend money and just want a free meditation app that is up to the quality that other paid services provide. And the narrations are top notch!!

      After hours of watching this Laptop screen, a better treatment to mind and soul is required.

      And with Calm I enjoy this peace of mind.

      I love Calm. I've always struggled to adopt a steady meditation practice, but Calm makes it easy to form the habit!

    Meditation and breathing exercises for geeks

    Great pick! Using it for 2 months now.
    • Arin Basudoctor, professor environmental health

      Excellent app for meditation. if I were to choose among insight timer, headspace, calm, and oak, I'd choose Oak. This app beats every other app in terms of its balance between simplicity and unobtrusiveness. The best app for meditation is here, and you do not need to waste money on anything else.

      I love Oak for keeping the meditation techniques simple and effective. I find most apps too noisy or expensive. This one strikes the right balance. Makes a i-hate-meditation person like me want to sit down for a daily session. Love everything about Oak.

    Sleep at the push of a button! Now with "Focus."

    If you need help sleeping, Pzizz has a great way to help you resolve the problem.

    Ambient background sounds for your Mac

    Great alternative for music, really like to listen to some sounds while writing or reading before going to bed.

    World’s first sleep robot to improve sleep

    Not really an app, but rather a companion! With Somnox, we want to create a world where smart soft robotics will make a major difference in people's daily health and happiness. Our Sleep Robot is the first step into that direction. With the Somnox Sleep Robot, we reduce stress and anxiety by simulating human-like breathing techniques. By feeling the breathing of the robot, your own breathing pattern synchronizes to that of the robot. Thus making you more relaxed and thus fall asleep faster. Also, soothing sounds like meditative music and ambient sounds can bring you to more calmer thoughts. However, our robot is not only meant for sleeping, but also for taking a small pause from work by taking an afternoon nap, or by putting your mind off with the robot guiding you through your favorite meditation. LMK your thoughts :)
