If you’re new to meditation and are looking for a gentle introduction to help reduce your stress and aid in sleep and relaxation then you should find the sessions contained in this iPhone and iPad app to be particularly useful in getting you started.
This is a fairly run-of-the-mill example of a meditation app that features a very simplistic interface design that you should have no trouble finding your way around. There are three meditations of varying lengths, with the shortest being just five minutes to help you start off gently.
Sometimes it can take a few sessions to really get into the ‘groove’ of focus and concentration, but with concerted effort you’ll be using the longer sessions in no time and can really start to reap the benefits to your health and well-being.
Relax & Rest Guided Meditations has been designed to provide a gentle introduction to meditation for those who are new to it. There are three meditation tracks to choose from which each come with professional voice guidance to help you establish and maintain your focus.
The meditation tracks are five minutes, 13 minutes, and 24 minutes in length, so you’ve got access to a decent variety of durations depending on your level of experience and how much time you have on your hands.
Customize Your Meditation Sessions
The app also comes complete with detailed instructions that will help you get up to speed in no time at all. I would recommend reading these if you’ve never meditated before as it will only take a couple of minutes but should help quite a lot.
You’ll also be pleased to know that you can customize the meditation sessions by toggling the music on and off, or alternatively you can listen to the background music and nature sounds without any voice guidance so that you can meditate and relax on your own terms.

There is nothing negative to say about this app
Relax & Rest Guided Meditations isn’t the most advanced of meditation or relaxation apps for iPhone and iPad that I’ve come across in the Health & Fitness category of the App Store, but it is definitely not the worst I’ve seen.
I think you’ll find the sessions in this app to be more than adequate to help you relax at the end of a long day and really lower your stress levels.
