The Unplug: Guided Meditation app is like having your best friend in your pocket. Imagine being able to click a button for any mood or emotion you may have and having someone there to guide you and make you feel better… every time. I designed the Unplug app so that every moment in your life would be covered, whether it’s morning, afternoon or evening, or you need to feel better at work, get happy quick or get back to sleep at 2am, it’s all there, all the time. There are so many incredible features inside of this app, including a meditation of the day so you don’t have to scroll endlessly to find a great meditation. I also love the playlist section which is perfect for anyone who wants to build a practice that sticks. Sometimes, you may just want to meditate and not be guided which is why we created the timer, whether you want to meditate in silence or to sound. We also created a special journal so you can begin and end the day with gratitude – just write down 3 things that you’re grateful for everyday. Finally, we have a whole page dedicated to showing you your progress, whether it’s minutes, days or weeks, connecting to mindful minutes in your Health app, or setting goals and reminders. With the Unplug app you will always have your posse in your pocket.
