This free mindfulness and meditation app was developed by psychologists and educators to bring balance to your life. They recommend just 10 minutes per day! There are programs specifically for adults and youth, and can be used in a variety of settings like in the classroom or at work. Smiling Mind helps with stress, sleep, attention, wellbeing, relationships, mindful eating, and more!
Mindfulness and meditation have been found to be excellent techniques for improving mental health and wellbeing. In fact, lots of different evidence-based individual and group therapies incorporate these practices. The team at Smiling Mind is dedicated to study the effects of the app and partnering with researchers. Compared to a control condition (who didn’t use Smiling Mind), students who used Smiling Mind had lower depressive symptoms, better college adjustment, and more resilience over time.
