After 7 days the app asks you to purchase in order to continue. I feel like it is doing a good job so I am going ahead. The recorded exercises are relaxing and calming. The app could be a little more robust, though: if you need to go back and look at the reminders you have set, it shows you the next day. Sometimes I have had to listen to the main lesson in order to get back to fixing the reminder times, and once it forgot what day I was on. Aside from that, a very effective package!
This app has a very pleasant interface and a nice calming voice with no distracting background sounds. Even better, it offers lots of options at a one-time price that's less than others' one month subscription. Paying those prices is a joke when there are options like this out there.
I recently completed 7 months of mindfulness therapy with a social worker to ease my crippling anxiety associated with college. Once I was finished with the therapy I found it difficult to sit by myself for 2-3 minutes without being distracted or getting bored. This app is the perfect solution to maintain the practice. I really like being able to set the refresher reminders because during a busy day of class it's hard to remember to be mindful.
Aware was my first jump into meditation. I had been talking about starting for a long time but always put it off. Then I started looking for guided meditations and apps. But the price tags that came along with apps such as Calm or Headspace did everything but make me calm. Calm has a 7 day free beginner course and Headspace I THINK has 10 free sessions. Aware here has a 21 day free foundation course, which takes this app MILES beyond the others just with that. But when I saw that I could get a lifetime of Aware for 4.99, I could not pass it up!
I have severe anxiety and a lot of overthinking thoughts that tend to make the anxiety worse. My anxiety, plus insomnia is the worst ever. since starting to use Aware I have been able to let go of my overthinking thoughts and be in the moment. Before using this app I was skeptical but now I never plan to delete it. It's my go to help for my life. Thanks for creating an amazing app!!
It's been a long time since I last practiced meditation and I'd forgotten how peaceful it can be. I'm currently finding the foundation course very useful ... the guide's voice is engaging without being distracting and he's calm and clear. The pace of each session and the course are just right and the energiser sessions are very helpful. I'm not religious so I appreciate the lack of spiritual talk, but I can also see how for those who are it would supplement their devotional practice.
