App Spotlight: Relax and Decompress

Insight Timer - Meditation Timer

Today we shine the Apps Spotlight on apps designed to help you unwind, decompress and relax.

Insight Timer – Meditation Timer is just what it sounds like. From Amazon:

Imagine the sound of beautiful Tibetan singing bowls, gently and peacefully guiding you through your meditation session. Insight Timer keeps track of time so you can focus your attention within. This app is simple to use yet powerful enough to handle the most sophisticated meditation routines with advanced features such as interval bells, presets, and a meditation journal.

With the Insight Connect feature, you can become part of a global meditation community – seeing at a glance people around the world who are meditating with you. Link to your Facebook or Twitter accounts and you and your friends can follow and support one another’s practice. You can also make new friends who share your love of meditation.

Features include:
– Choose from seven different bells of varying size and metal compositions – from bright and clean to deep and complex with lovely overtones. A wood block sound is also included. Bells can be configured to ring at the start, the end, and at specified times during your session. Each bell can be set to ring once, twice or three times. The delay between strikes is configurable from 1 to 20 seconds.

– Track your progress over time with the logging and statistics features. Multiple charts, a complete session log and helpful statistics give you a complete picture of how your practice is evolving.

– Presets allow you to save an unlimited number of configurations and assign names to them. If you have multiple meditation routines (such as Morning and Evening), this makes it easy to switch between them without any configuration changes.

– Meditation Journal: You may enter notes about each session when the timer ends – a practice that many people find to be helpful and therapeutic. Your journal entries can be exported via an email attachment. Journal access may be password protected to ensure privacy.

Acupressure: Treat YourselfAccupressure: Treat Yourself is an educational app designed to teach the pressure points you can use to relieve pain and muscle tightness, and fight fatigue. From Amazon:

Accupressure: Treat Yourself is easy to use app with illustrated instructions how to make acupressure point massage. Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force to aid healing.

Foremost among the advantages of acupressure’s healing touch is that it is safe to do on yourself and others – even if you’ve never done it before. You can even use self-acupressure to relieve anxiety and to help you get to sleep at night. This app contains over 90 point combinations to heal yourself. Healing categories include Maintaining Health, Emergencies, Pain Relief, Digestive Disorders, and many more.

Accupressure: Treat Yourself is rated an average of 4.5/5 stars across 15 reviews and is priced at $1.99.

So get these apps, then kick back, loosen up those muscles, enjoy some timed meditation and treat yourself to the sounds that soothe!
