This app is designed for everyone (especially for kids and beginners). It also helps people who think that they cannot do meditation or they are not the “meditation kinds.” This app teaches users how to live in the moment with the help of meditation. As a user, you can listen to the short go-to meditations which are specially designed for people with busy schedules. It basically connects you with nature.
If you are a busy person with an overloaded schedule, this app only asks you to spare 5 minutes from your schedule. This app provides 5 minutes of meditation which helps you feel grounded. As the name implies, Unplug is specially designed to excel in guided meditations. But, it also provides self-direct meditations with ambient sounds and unobtrusive timers. It helps users to re-focus again on the workday and feel grounded. This app provides you 30-day challenge wherein the goal is to make mediation a habit for the long run. Isn’t it exciting?

Simple Habit is not only an app but a library of guided meditations. One of the best things I loved about this app is that it provides an offline platform as well wherein you can learn mindfulness with full accessibility but sadly it is only available for premium subscribers. Moreover, this app also provides special guided meditations for overcoming stress and panic attacks within a few minutes.
