Meditation Apps for Every Personality

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest

Meditation often conjures up images of blissed-out hippies wearing flowing clothes and sitting in trance-like stillness. If the only stillness you experience is when you pass out in bed each night, the ancient practice can seem pretty daunting—and even kind of weird.

But as you’ve probably heard by now, there are tons of reasons to meditate—it’s good for your heart, helps you sleep better, creates better eating habits, and improves relationships, for starters. Whether you’re looking to make it a habit or just want to dip your toes in, we rounded up 13 apps that make it easy to develop a practice that works for you—and your lifestyle.

Headspace starts on level one, where you’ll learn meditation basics and techniques through fun, animated videos, and a guided, 10-minute session each day. Once you progress past level three, you can choose from themed series (health, relationships, performance) or quick sessions you can do while walking, commuting, cooking, going to sleep—or when you’re having a major freak-out. Also awesome? For every subscription purchased, Headspace donates one to a person in need.Available at, $12.95 per month.

If You’re Having a Bad Day: Stop, Breathe, & Think

Feeling annoyed and exhausted? Uneasy and overwhelmed? There’s a meditation for that. The app prompts you to take 10 seconds to think about how you feel mentally, physically, and emotionally, and then offers a handful of meditations tailored to your state of mind. You can also track your progress through stickers and a chart that shows how you feel before and after meditating. The only downfall is you can’t choose hangry as an emotion (yet).Available at, free. Premium subscription, $4.99 per month.

If You Want to Build Healthier Habits: Calm

Even Calm’s website is, um, calming (its homepage lets you pick from a number of soothing soundscapes, like falling rain, the ocean shore, or chirping birds). Both the app and site offer guided programs that help you work toward something, whether you want to manage stress, practice gratitude, or get better sleep. Like Headspace, it also has one-off sessions for specific situations, such as when you’re commuting, angry, or need to concentrate. Available at, $12.99 per month.

The Mindfulness App offers a no-nonsense way for beginners to try meditation, helping users to go from zero to zen in moments. A five-day introduction gives you the ins and outs of the app, then you’ll get access to a library of silent and guided meditation sessions ranging from three to 30 minutes in length. The app also lets you log your progress and read stats on how far you’ve come, helping you stay focused on your goals. Available at, $9.99 per month.

Between work, the gym, and your social life, it’s hard to find time to meditate —but nearly everyone has five minutes. With Simple Habit, you can pick one of three options for a quick and easy meditation: in the morning, during a work break, or before bed.Available at, $11.99 per month.

If You Can’t Stand Listening to the Same Voice Over and Over: Meditation Studio

Simply Being uses the relaxing sounds of nature as therapy. “Calm Ocean Shore,” “Gentle Forest Brook,” and “Light Rain” are just a few of its options. Plus, the app offers written help (in addition to audio meditations), in case you learn better that way. It’s the closest to zen you can get without actually booking the next available flight to Fiji. Available at, $1.99.

If You Want More Than Just Meditation: Pacifica

Mediation is just one way Pacifica helps you deal with stress and anxiety. You can track your health and mood; journal about your thoughts and feelings; work toward a goal; practice small challenges (“Make eye contact with a stranger,” “Compliment someone”); and learn relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, visualization, and, yes, meditation. It’s the next best thing to seeing a therapist IRL.Available at, free. Premium subscription, $5.99 per month.

Want to be happier but also really just want to play games on your iPhone? Sattva turns your mental state into a game—but not in a messed-up Westworld way. You can monitor your heart rate, win trophies for meditating on the reg, and even chat with other meditation fans. It’s the game where everyone wins.Available at, free. Individual meditations and chants, up to $1.99.

If You Can’t Sit Still While Meditating: Pause

Pause puts the power in your hands—literally—through a clever interface that responds to your finger. Calm yourself down by slowly and continuously moving your fingertips across the screen. The app also has soothing audio to help bring you into the moment and focus your thoughts.Available at, $1.99.

If You’re Pregnant or New at This Whole Mom Thing: Expectful

Expectful offers videos, guided meditations, and even exercises that are trimester specific. Why? Because meditation can help make labor easier, boost your immune system, and improve sleep patterns. Bonus: Expectful has a whole community of women who are within weeks of your due date, so you can chat with other people who know exactly how you’re feeling. Available at, $9 per month.
