Thinking of meditation can foster some images of new-age hippy followers of Buddhism, but that doesn’t have to be the case. For the more mainstream and busy individuals, the Calm meditation app for beginners is an excellent way to introduce yourself to the concept. More importantly, it is a guided couple of minutes that will help you to relax and be more productive during your time of work.

Although taking twenty minutes to an hour will be too much for the average person, the two minute guided meditation is just right. An automated voice will guide you through the process with the comforting sounds of beach waves in the background. Wisely, the makers of the web app were quick to call it guided relaxation rather than meditation to avoid any strange connotations. Nonetheless, it is an extremely valuable program for beginners and even comes on the iPhone for those looking for relaxation on the go.
