Somehow, with all the technology and services we have available to us, we find our lives jam packed with too much stuff. Meetings to make, parties to attend, housework to finish – it’s a never-ending cycle. In the midst of all of that, experts say we should take time to be mindful, slow down and bring balance into our day – easier said than done. Now, you can. If you rely on apps to get things done, then consider an app to bring meditation and focus into your day.
SOS Method: Meditation is an app that puts the SOS Method into action. While traditional meditation practice takes time, SOS Method makes it fit into our busy lives. If you only have five minutes to spare, SOS Method can help. With uniquely designed exercises, it helps you tap into you mind and let it focus inward, to bring inspiration, calm your emotions and improve overall well-being. When your mind is free from clutter, you function better.
Free to download, the app does require a subscription if you wish to have unlimited access to all of the content. Otherwise you can use it for a limited time through the free trial period. Trust me, once you use the app for a while, you will be hooked, and you’ll want to sign up.
Combining Eastern holistic wellness methods with Wester science, research has found a way to make meditation work for busy people. You don’t have to carve out 2 or 3 hours to reap benefits, you can improve your well-being in 5-minute sessions when and where you can fit them in.
This app takes full advantage of what makes SOS Method so effective:
- Specially designed meditation sessions based on your current needs, packaged with the right music, tone, words and white space.
- Various exercises and programs help expose insights to what triggers your stress. The app provides tools and meditative exercises to help control our reactions, opening your mind to accept the good and grow the positive.
- Real world data that shows improvements in users of all ages, from various places all around the world.
Using the app is very easy. You will have to create an account to use the app by providing an email address. It provides guides on how to start and use the various sessions and even save some so you can repeat favorites.
The creator of SOS Method: Meditation wants to make a difference one person at a time, so for every subscription that is purchased, he offers one for free to someone in need, and right now the world is in dire need of something that helps people cope with difficulties around them.
Once you start using the app, you will notice a much calmer demeanor in
yourself, you may notice that you handle difficult situations better, and you
may find that you sleep better. I think that the better sleep is core to fixing
so many problems – when people are not well-rested, it can lead to so many
I would like to see a version where it’s optional to provide an email address, just so you can use the app anonymously. It’s not a gamechanger and it certainly would not thwart me from using the app. I’ve tried it for a few day snow and feel like it’s going to make a positive difference going forward.
