The Calm Mind app encourages you to focus your attention on the present moment by counting your breaths. It is based on the core function of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) practice of focusing the mind 100% on what is happening right now – in this very instant.(1)
Changing numbers and an accompanying voice-over are timed to match your natural breathing pace. If at any time the session feels too fast or too slow, you simply recalibrate the rate until you are comfortable.
It takes approximately one minute to complete one session of counting from 1 to 9 and back to 1. It takes only a couple of minutes to complete the cycle of three sessions. Therefore, it will take on average seven minutes to complete your daily practice.
The sequence of changing images, harmonious music, and a relaxing voice help guide your attention to being fully absorbed in the meditation process. The more often you practise the easier it becomes and the sooner you will feel the benefits. What's more, you can use the app anywhere.
When you sit quietly experiencing the moment – not thinking, but observing and feeling – you experience all that is happening now. This relaxes you on a deep level. You become calmer, happier, less stressed, less anxious, and less worried. This is the practice of mindfulness meditation.(2)
Much of the time we live in our thoughts. We don’t notice what is actually happening around us. We think about the past and the future, good things and bad things, happy things and sad things, but always thinking about things. This takes us away from being present with our selves.
The relentlessly fast-paced life that many of us face each day can lead to familiar complaints: “I'm finding it too hard to get everything done that I need to get done,” or just, “I can't cope.” How so?
Quite simply, too much thinking leads to conflicting stresses between the body and the mind. Excessive sensory input places too many pressures on the brain leading it to easily become overloaded and inefficient.(3) Without “time out” we often end up feeling exhausted. But that does not mean we should just “switch off.” Far from it.
Mindfulness meditation is not about “emptying your mind” or becoming vacuous. It is the complete opposite. It is about becoming more alert, clear-headed, and aware – but without the worries and anxieties.
Science confirms that many parts of the brain can physically change over time. One feature of this neuroplasticity is the creation of new neural networks through the regular practise of particular mental activities. The brain can literally change itself through its own actions. And this is where mindfulness meditation comes into its own.(4) The more you practise the stronger your new neural networks and pathways will become. You will move from being anxious, worried, and sad to being calm, relaxed, and happy. Your appreciation of life will grow.(5)
Once upon a time we were encouraged to “turn on, tune in, drop out.” Mindfulness mediation goes in a different direction and much, much further. Its simple technique is older, wiser, suitable for all ages, and completely free.

I was a little hesitant to begin with as to whether this would help me. After 2 weeks of practicing, I absolutley love the app and would recommend it to anyone wanting to calm their mind and become more mindful.

This is a really good app and would recommend it to any one wanting to be more mindful throughtout their day.
As the others have mentioned it reeally does help you become moreaware of your actions and thoughts. It helped me recognise my axioty rising and to deal with it in a control calm manner.
