There are many resources available which can not only help people sustain their Mindfulness practice but enable them to see how they can use the skills they have learnt in lots of different areas of their lives. Below is a selection of resources that we find useful.
The Apps we like are:
The Mindfulness App (both the blue and the green ones are great). There is a UK version with a UK flag – it has been recorded by Chris Cullen of Oxford Centre for Mindfulness and is great if you like an English accent.
HeadSpace’s new ‘On the Go’ App has some good content and most people like Andy Puddicombe’s relaxed tone.
Buddhify over 80 guided customised mediations for wherever you are, whatever you’re doing.
Insight Timer app Home to more than 1,100,000 meditators, Insight Timer is rated as the top free meditation app on the Android and iOS stores.
Potential Project app contains simple but powerful mindfulness exercises to increase presence and ability to focus. There are also instructions to cultivate more joy, acceptance, kindness and openness in daily life.
Sleepify app makes falling asleep and waking up an enjoyable experience.
