In a non-stop, fast-paced world where the weight of stress and distractions can get the better of us, it’s important to take some time to pause and reflect. Davy Guo, ELG psychologist, recommends the meditation app, “Stop, Breathe & Think,” which teaches mindfulness meditation to middle-schoolers, high-schoolers and adults. You can also check out their app for children, Stop, Breathe & Think for Kids, which encourages little ones to connect with and process their emotions.
Whether you’re a total beginner or a meditation guru, this app is designed to be accessible to all. Accompanied by charming illustrations, the app’s introduction teaches you the basics of mindfulness and meditation and the science behind the benefits of meditation.
When you’re ready to begin meditating, the app starts by checking in on your thoughts and feelings, before recommending some age-appropriate meditation guides customized for your current mood. After you’re done meditating, the app will check in on your emotions again. The app allows you to track your progress, “settledness,” the emotions you have been experiencing the most, and more.
Meditate regularly with Stop, Breathe & Think, and you’ll develop better self-awareness and find inner calm.
