Well if you read my post on the headspace app, you might know that I am trying guided meditation lately. And writing my thoughts on those apps.
The next app that I downloaded in this series is OMG. I can Meditate!
After I downloaded the app on my iPhone, it opened with the 7-day challenge for the week one. Now here are my views on the app after completing the week 1.
We have to follow one meditation video per day in this challenge. Unlike headspace, you have the flexibility to meditate for more than ten minutes in these videos. The free version has these 7 meditation sequences and a few others like for videos for waking up and going to sleep. To access the remaining meditation series, one needs to get the subscription.
What attracts me in this app
The soothing and gentle voice of the instructor along with the soft background music creates a calming environment. And she explains the purpose of that day’s meditation before guiding you into the meditative state. The bell indicating the end of the meditation is a plus. That bell is missing in the headspace app. Another plus is the easy and navigable UI of the app.
On an ending note
Headspace tracks your meditation statistics. It shows you your streak (number of days you meditated without fails) and the total number of minutes you have meditated till then. OMG app lacks these statistics.It explains meaning and process of meditation like headspace, only just without those cute animations in the headspace. But that doesn’t decrease the app’s appeal. And the OMG app would give a good start to new meditators.
Till now both headspace and omg I can meditate are on an equal footing for me.
Next app on my list is “Stop, Breathe and think“. Let’s see how that app turns out.
Thanks for stopping by & Happy meditating 🙂
