Meditation Resources: Videos, Music, and Apps
Are you struggling to start meditating or be consistent with your practice? Don't worry we've got you covered! We've gathered a list of meditation resources—from meditation videos to music, and apps—to help you meditate more and feel better!
Guided Meditation: Great for Beginners
- Mindfulness Guided Meditation - 5 minutes
- 10-Minute Meditation For Beginners - 10 minutes
- How To Meditate In Twelve Minutes | Guided Meditation & Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners - 12 minutes
Headspace (iOS, Android: $70 per year) has a better mix of options than any app we tried. Its library is vast, well organized, and has a fun interface. Its courses are clearly labeled and structured and they advance gradually over multiple sessions. We found it easier to find the exact type of meditation we wanted along with sticking with it compared with using apps whose libraries were disorganized or less comprehensive.
If you already meditate and are looking for strategies or features to enhance your practice, Calm (iOS, Android: $70 per year) may be a better fit for you. In addition to guided sessions, it offers more free-form exercises and flexible meditation timers compared with Headspace. It also allows you to track your mood over time more frequently than Headspace does. But Calm is less organized and more difficult to navigate than Headspace.
Healthy Minds Program
Healthy Minds Program (iOS, Android) is a free app that centers on four key ideas: awareness, connection, insight, and purpose. Its content is more user-friendly than other free apps and many paid apps, and if you’re looking for a simple, straightforward path to meditation without ads or constant pop-ups prompting you to subscribe, this might be a good choice.
