What do we think about Breethe?
Meditation and mindfulness have many benefits in our life, and it is always good to make meditation a daily practice in your life. We think that Breethe is a good option for those who are just starting with meditation. Sometimes it can get boring for beginners to sit for hours quietly to meditate and therefore it’s easy to lose interest in the initial days. Some of the meditation sessions in the app are as short as 4 minutes so that you can get used to the process. Breethe has a course specially designed for beginners as well.
Breethe also offers a wide variety of different courses to choose from, this help to select what’s best for you. Also, the free version of the app offers a good number of free meditation courses for those who do not want to invest in the program yet. It’s not just you, some of the courses at Breethe are also designed for kids, and considering the wide range of different meditation categories available in the app many family members can benefit from using the same platform and can have similar experiences. So, if you are looking for a family meditation app then we will say try Breethe.
