If you’d love to get into meditation but can’t find the time to lie down and let your thoughts drift away, the Walking Meditations app could be worth a try. Walking meditation can be just as profound as stationary meditation and combines the art of meditation with the benefits of daily exercise.

mind the bumpMind the Bump
This one’s for all you mummas and mummas-to- be. Mind the Bump is designed specifically for mindful pregnancies. Growing a human being is a draining process, so a little mental boost can never hurt. The best part is that it’s designed with couples in mind, so you and your partner can become more connected with yourselves and each other.

relaxRelax Melodies
If you fancy yourself a bit of a meditation pro, or simply don’t like the thought of someone talking you through your daily mindfulness exercises, Relax Melodies is the next best thing. With calming noises like rain, a ceiling fan and even complete silence, this app is a great backing track for switching off.
