I’ve wanted to build a meditation practice for a long time. After trying numerous apps, I just gave up. I either fell asleep each time or my mind wandered constantly. I just couldn’t get it. When I received an email to try this new Balance app, I thought to myself, “just try one more time.” I’m so glad I did. I now have a streak of 34 days, and find myself taking moments throughout the day to just close my eyes and use the skills I’ve been learning without using the app. It’s changing my life. I pay more attention to what I’m doing. I find that I listen better in conversations. Just an overall improvement in my awareness and peace in general. This app worked for me because it started off with short sessions and easy skills and builds from there. I now find myself wanting to do the longer sessions. I love that this program builds on the success of each session and gives you multiple techniques for your meditation toolkit. Initially, I was disappointed that each meditation didn’t have some soothing spa music. Now I’ve come to welcome the silence because I can really hear myself. This is a fantastic app and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here. Please know that I’ve never written an app review in my life, so this is the highest compliment I can possibly give. Thank you for making meditation so accessible and easy to develop into an everyday practice.
I couldn’t agree with Jared who also took the words out of my mouth. Although I have been through some formal trading in a grip setting with a Counsler and even have a therapist this app is fantastic. It’s starts you off slow and had me actually pick up on some of the things I missed in my class. They start you off slow and ask you personal questions so that they may build the sessions around you on a personal level. I love that! It’s like a real one one and it keep me wanting more. I retired now at 55 with a full pension with Medical and now I watch a spend time with my grandchildren. But who would have ever thought the rest of my life sound peaches and cream. I suffer from anxiety and stress that I know I bring upon myself which gets me physically and emotionally sick! I can’t watch my grandchildren like that. I have to be wit a sound mind loving and caring and let go and let God. I love this app as it allows me to do just that!!! Please continue to grow and help others as this is a blessed app for all that need it!! Happy holidays to all and may you find your peace! ❤️
I really enjoy this app. However I was disappointed when I unlocked the year of it and it seems I still can’t adjust my sessions to be any longer than 10 minutes. 5 or 10 minutes are the only options. Is this going to change? Usually I’m just getting settled and my mind is only just staring to quiet as she’s asking me to open my eyes. Also when she asks to count your breaths up to 5 and start over, I rarely get to 5 counts before she’s on to the next exercise. I’d really like to see this app offer 15 or 20 minute sessions with more time in between each of the prompts. Otherwise I’m wondering if I can get a refund because 10 minutes just isn’t enough for me. The app is great otherwise, I love that it’s personalized and tracks your skills and how long you’ve done each of them but I find I meditate much more deeply after 10 minutes of getting my mind to settle down first.
i’m going to start off this review by saying that i am a generally stressed person. school, work, personal life, presentations, etc. so you can imagine once i heard of meditating, i was going to find an app that could truly help me. balance is by far the best one i’ve used. it is free, and though it does have a premium feature that requires payment, i feel like you have a good selection of things to choose from regardless. the app itself is very organized and calming. i’ve been meditating with the app for about a week now, right before bed, and it’s been amazing. it really does help me get into a calmer state and slows my heart rate down. the voices are very calming, and i like how they have plans to teach about meditating techniques and tips and tricks that could help. i used to have headspace, simple habit, and calm, but i have deleted them in lieu of balance!! you won’t regret getting this app!
Conceptually this app is great, but it is not right for everyone. I have been out of my meditation practice for years, so thought it would be best to start as a beginner again. I only did three days before deleting this app. Each day was breath focused, which is not great for certain types of anxiety and PTSD. In fact focusing on breathing can cause a panic attack to happen. (It has happened to me) The meditations were some of the worst I’ve experienced, they were poorly done and left me feeling worse each time. I initially downloaded this after a physician suggested I get back into meditation. This is not right for me. Each day the teacher would say something along the lines of ‘you will always be able to breathe so just breathe’... I have a neurological disease that causes me to stop breathing, and I have been put in the ICU for it... that statement being repeated over and over, was awful!!! I hope that others find benefits from this app, but if you have any serious issues with trauma, anxiety or a breathing problem this might not be right for you. I wish I had known. I will keep looking.
