I downloaded this after I found out about it from the Elevate app I use and I’m so happy with it so far. I’m only on my 3rd day meditating with Balance, but so far, I really appreciate that it’s a customizable approach to meditation. A lot of other meditation apps are general and not as personal, but this one factors in what your goal of meditating is. For me, it’s focus and mood enhancing. So, it takes that into consideration along with your age and meditation experience and creates a meditation program for you. I really like how the app also has a meditation tracker too, at the end of every session it’ll fill in a bubble for the day of the week you meditated, which helps keeps me accountable. Anyway, really dope app and gentle guidance, so ya girl is happy.
I'm so grateful to have been chosen as one of the first to test out this app. I have tried several other meditation and relaxation apps in the past but they were all so overwhelming for this meditation newbie that I just gave up on them pretty quickly. Balance is different. It guides you through learning how to meditate and how to use what you learn in meditation during the rest of your life. I really do think going through the personalized plans that balance developed for me has helped me find a happier, calmer place in life.
It’s amazing as it is right now, but I wish it had a soothing sounds folder because when I feel anxiety I need to listen to ocean waves and natural sounds to sooth myself. It would be nice to just have that on the app. If you choose to add that I would be very glad if you just keep it as a separated folder with sounds not as a backtrack to the guided meditation because I like the meditation how you have it right now. I just need natural sounds and native flutes to sooth myself while I’m working or doing school. I cancelled my subscription to headspace because I really like balance and will get a subscription here. Thank you it’s a great app...
TL;DR: Balance is unlike any other meditation app. I was lucky enough to get Balance during testing. At first, I thought it might be another meditation app it a somewhat crowded space. It’s not, guys. It’s totally customized to you. And the customization doesn’t just stop after a first-use survey; the app learns with your usage and your feedback. The app is beautifully designed and easy to use. Just looking at the colors is soothing. And the cool little quasi- people they used in their designs make me happy. The voice of the female meditation coach is little butter. And the sound is well done - it’s like she’s in the room rocking me gently to sleep. I use the app mainly for sleep and it’s helped me immensely. I plan to master the more traditional meditation features in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for creating Balance. I’m lucky to have this resource at my disposal.
Having been an avid user of Elevate, I was asked to beta this app, Balance. I have (had) no background in meditation and honestly not any interest taking it up. In fact, early on I suggested they might add something that suggests why I would want to meditate in the first place. But, they asked for my help so I tried to give it. I never really got invested in meditation while doing this daily, but interestingly I did notice many of the techniques were quite helpful and over time I did find myself thinking about and sometimes using them outside the app. So...if meditation is your thing I think you’ll find it fantastic. If meditation is not? Give it a try anyways for 21 days then decide. There are handy things that help you calm yourself when you want to lash out at someone, among other things. Enjoy!
