Better than Grindr: My New Favorite App!

I’m going to channel my inner Oprah and share one of my new faaaavorite things: The Insight Timer smartphone app (I use the free “lite” version). It’s even better than Grindr – and will certainly do more to enhance the quality of your life. Just saying.

At face value, it’s essentially just a timer for your meditation sessions. But through the “Insight Connect” feature, you can take your meditation experience to a whole new level. It enables you to see the first names and locations of those people currently meditating – all around the world. You can even thank them for meditating with you.

In addition, the app helps boost your meditation motivation. We all know that meditation has a number of great benefits like reducing stress, anxiety and depression and increasing feelings of peace and happiness – but sometimes we need a little kick in the butt. By using the app to time meditation sessions, you can track your progress. For instance, it keeps track of the time spent meditating during the current month – and then compares it to previous months through various charts and graphs. You also get badges for reaching various time-related thresholds.

And a special thank you to the blog buddy that emailed me about this app. If you know of any other cool apps, let me know in the comments below!

Insight Timer is available for Android-powered smartphones and the iPhone and iPod Touch.
