Mindfulness is all the rage, and we all want and need some peace in our lives. The key is how to wean ourselves from our busy lives by cutting the tether to technology and liberating our minds.
The challenge is how to do that.
That’s where OMG. I Can Meditate! helps. Most people think of meditation as some hippie activity that’s meant for a select few. The truth is that it is something that everyone needs in today’s world. This app brings all sorts of meditation tools to you, so you don’t have to work to search high and low looking for a way to de-stress.
Afraid to meditate? Well, this app offers a variety of exercises you can do to transport your mind into a calm state, which effectively is what meditation is. You really don’t have to sit like a yogi on a mat, cross-legged for four hours moaning out a mantra. What you need is some time set aside to open the app and follow the simple instructions.
After downloading the app, you will be taken to a main page that will instantly take you to a place of serenity. A slow moving visual of a seascape and horizon, sprinkled with large round sea-carved boulders. Select the menu icon to see selections of different types of meditative and calming exercises.
