Stop, Breathe & Think is a free meditation companion app. The service focuses on teaching the fundamental process of mindfulness meditation through regular prompts and instructions.

Modern mindfulness

Stop, Breathe & Think starts with a single question: How are you today? The process of inward examination, crucial to effective meditation, starts with users selecting a physical and mental rating. These ratings, from 'Meh' to 'Great', serve as markers and starting points. The app then recommends various techniques for user's moods including short walks and breath-focused meditation sessions complete with instructional videos and texts. Regular sessions are prompted by stickers and milestones which can be collected by users. Stop, Breathe & Think's developers are part of a larger organization focused on improving mental well-being, donating 10% of the app's revenue to Tools for Peace. While the simple practices are explained competently, the service is only really a basic first step. Teaching meditation takes extended research and study, both of which are beyond the scope of the app.

Stepping stone

Stop, Breathe & Think is a clever idea for an app implemented well. The app only really contains enough information for a complete beginner, but the motivation created by stickers and updates helps create effective regular mediation sessions.
