​Free Meditation Apps

Last updated March 24, 2022

School, jobs, and life itself can be stressful! If you have a lot on your plate, it can be hard to take a moment for yourself to breathe, relax, and check in with yourself about how you're feeling. Meditating can be a great way to do this. Don't worry if you don't have any experience! Here are some guided meditation apps that can help you take a moment to practice some self-care.

Aura

This app offers free, personalized meditation, as well as stores & sleep tales, and life coaching. Download on Apple or Android.

Calm

Calm offers 3 to 25 minute meditation sessions to help with anxiety, practicing gratitude and more. If you are meditating for the first time, there are programs for beginners. Download on Apple or Android.

Smiling Mind

Smiling Mind offers daily mindfulness and meditation guides for both children and adults. Download on Apple or Android.

Free Meditation & Anxiety Apps

Meditating without an app

Mindful’s beginner’s guide to meditation breaks down what meditation is, why it’s important, how to practice it, and how to incorporate it into your daily routine. They also offer guided audio meditations, ranging from 1-15 minutes.

Set aside five minutes for the following (or longer):

  1. Get comfortable and prepare to sit still for a few minutes. Focus on your own natural inhaling and exhaling of breath.
  2. Focus on your breath. Where do you feel your breath most? In your belly? In your nose? Try to keep your attention on your inhale and exhale.
  3. Follow your breath for two minutes. Take a deep inhale, expanding your belly, and then exhale slowly, elongating the out-breath as your belly contracts.

Did you experience random thoughts as you practiced breathing? That’s totally natural. Keep practicing and it will get easier to focus on your breath and let go of distractions; the more often you practice (even for 5-10 minutes/day), the calmer you will feel.
