5 Free Meditation Apps to Help You Exhale Ahead of the Long Weekend

Ahh, we love the feeling right before a long weekend! We can’t believe it’s already MDW, but are so thankful it’s time to unwind and reset during some of the wildest times we’ve all experienced. Let’s face it, 2020 and 2021 have put a lot on our plate so looking forward to days off is likely at the top of everyone’s mind. If you can really use a reset ahead of the weekend or want to practice mindfulness in general, we have some free meditation apps that can help get you started. Ahead, we’re sharing some of our faves!

MyLife

If you’re looking to embark on a long-term mindfulness journey, MyLife is here to help. It’s based on emotions and how they change, so there’s always a prompt to try based on your current feelings for each day. You can take nature walks, learn about mindful eating, get resources for Black mental wellness, and more.

Insight Timer

Want to meditate to the voices of your favorite celebs and wellness gurus? If so, it’s time to download Insight Timer. It’s the number one free app for stress, sleep, and anxiety! There are also virtual events available for you to join based on yoga, sound healing, self-love, and more.

Breethe

Think of Breethe as your accountability partner for managing stress, coping with anxiety, and better sleep. With over 30,000 five-star ratings, there’s no doubt that the exercises work! The app makes it easy to fit mindfulness into your everyday life, and for those experiencing pandemic fatigue, there are prompts for that too.

BetterMe

BetterMe is a fitness and meal-planning app that also happens to tie in meditation. From a wellness perspective, meditation is a great way to get motivated, align with your goals, and stay inspired throughout the process. If you need a bit of a pick-me-up while getting active, this one’s for you.

Oak

Oak supports you all the way from your first session to your 500th one. The app is full of both meditation and breathing exercises that you can try to start or end your day, or take a much-needed break when necessary. There are prompts based on mindfulness, self-love, kindness, and more. There are also unguided meditations for when you want to take the lead.
