Meditation: Here’s the app to help you do it.



For many, meditation is the key to a blissful, calm, happy life. There’s an app out today to help you master it.


Lindy Klim practises mindfulness and meditation.

Lindy Klim is in Sydney this week to launch a new FREE meditation app, Smiling Mind, an initiative by Virgin Mobile.

Sounds ironic, a tech company launching a wellness product, but such is the recognition by everyone that we all need to spend more time connecting with ourselves and less connecting with our gadgets. A study by Virgin Mobile revealed 73% of people surveyed believe we live in the most stressful era in human history but only 1 in 10 (9%) surveyed currently rank their mental health as a top priority. 

Developed with psychologists and health professionals, Smiling Mind helps individuals improve their mental health and sense of wellbeing through the web and mobile app-based meditations designed for both adults and children.

It has been proven multiple times that meditation can help.

“Meditation has always been a part of my life from as far back as I can remember,” says Klim, who is Balinese. “We are all so beholden to our devices, we need to be present, and centered more than ever before. I have my children in a green school in Bali, the world’s first ecologically sustainable school where they do meditation, mindfulness and gratitude every morning and yoga every day. I exercise every day for one hour, and wake every morning for a 10 minute meditation.”

For three days this week, Virgin Mobile have a meditation Smiling Mind Pod in Martin Place where anyone can sit and escape the hustle and bustle of the CBD.

Here are thirty proven benefits of meditation:

1) Reduces Ageing
