Improve mindfulness with meditation apps

Meditation apps mean mindfulness training is now possible from any place and at any time. They offer content for beginners and the more advanced, and help you to integrate more mindfulness into your daily life. That’s also the goal of the free Helsana Coach app.

Take a short break, close your eyes, focus on your breathing – after just a few minutes, meditation has a positive effect on your body and mind. It can help with sleep problems, stress in everyday life or problems concentrating. However, finding the right type of meditation for the current situation and keeping it up isn't always easy.

This is why meditation apps help. They guide the user through short or long sessions and remind them – if desired – to focus on mindfulness. These can easily be integrated into your everyday routine.
