Description

The Calm app utilizes scenery and meditation to help induce feelings of calmness and relaxation. The ‘Meditation’ feature introduces novice users to meditation and may also help experienced meditators improve their approaches. The makers of Calm stress the importance of a healthy sleep schedule in promoting inner peace and physical movements in improving mental health. They also note the role music can play in easing our minds and improving our focus and sleep.

 

Overview

The Calm app identifies its four focus categories as the most essential elements to achieving mindful relaxation. These four categories include meditation, sleep, body, and music.

“The Calm app utilizes scenery and meditation to help induce feelings of calmness and relaxation.”

Meditation

The in-app instructions show how mindfulness and a focus on breathing are two primary goals of meditation. Calm teaches the necessity to remove stressful thoughts and focus on the simplicity of breathing where you are to turn down the volume of your busy life.

 

Sleep

While we all sleep, there are distinct differences between healthy and unhealthy sleep patterns. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of these differences. This is where the educational information from Calm teaches patterns and behaviors for a restful night so you can be ready to tackle the day ahead.

 

Body

Calm expands on the connection between mind and body by offering video lessons for mindful movement. It even provides gentle stretching techniques to prepare your body when you hope to relax your mind.

 

Music

The sounds of your surroundings can make a significant impact on how easily you are able to relax. Calm recognizes this truth and offers exclusive music that is carefully selected to help you focus, relax, and sleep.
