Teach yourself to be happy - Meditation and Mindfulness training with meditations, tutorials and a musical timer for self-practice.
Teach yourself to be happy – the Take3Breaths app has been designed to provide a harmonious approach to both studying and practicing meditation. Its purpose is to provide the beginner and practiced meditator a source of stress-relief, mental well-being (digital wellbeing app) and relaxation exercises. Are you a user of Calm app, Insight timer or Headspace? Check Take3Breaths.
Choose from carefully selected tutorials, guided meditations (for example, in the application you will find a sleeping meditation available for free or anti ageing meditation) and other techniques or use the musical meditation timer to practice your own meditations or mindfulness.
Different methods are taught so that users can gain access to a technique or techniques that work best for them.
Start by downloading the app for free and trying the short ‘Take Three Breaths’ meditation.
Whilst acknowledging the ancient and mystic origins of meditation, the app takes a scientific approach to meditation and its techniques. It recognises that meditation requires the brain to adopt an ‘Alpha’ brainwave state and is ideal for beginners and experienced meditators alike.
The app has been developed, from workplace feedback, by Meditation in the Workplace, a company who specialise in creating more mindful workplaces, happier teams and a better society by teaching staff meditation techniques. Its purpose is to widen the access to this meditation approach to the general public as well as colleagues, friends and families. In addition, it provides additional training and an ‘always available’ meditation resource to those accessing the workplace sessions.
The app consists of:
◦ The science behind meditations
◦ Structured meditations that guide the user to a practice that works for them
◦ Meditation Timer – for freeform personal meditations
◦ Meditations and tutorials from meditation teacher Martin Hassall
◦ Uplifting and relaxing music from the Polish composer Kacper Graczyk
◦ Statistics and reminders to encourage a regular meditation practice
The technique approach taught by the app recognises that human beings are not all the same and that a single meditation technique will not work for all people. Users are encouraged to try the different techniques, provided by the app, to find meditation practices that your mind is most suited to.
Thanks to mood tracker functionality the app encourages users to create a daily practice. Daily progress is automatically tracked in the app calendar along with how the person feels before and after they have completed a meditation.
People experienced in meditation, can use it to try different meditation practices and there is a timer that enables users to time their own free-form meditations without the voice of a tutor. New background tracks and new guided meditations are being added regularly – users can store their favourites in, ‘My Meditations’, for easy access later.
