Do you have the attention span of a goldfish? A new meditation app, Aura, claims it can still help you out.
Aura entered a saturated meditation market with a mission and an edge. By combining cutting-edge artificial intelligence with time-tested relaxation techniques from therapists and meditation teachers, the app aims to deliver meditation for anyone. The meditations range from three to 10 minutes, so you can get your peace on faster than you can finish a Tootsie Pop.
Aura’s foundational offering is a short daily session designed to quickly relieve stress and anxiety, but their premium subscription provides you with a personalized meditation coach. The app uses machine learning to adapt and learn from your mood fluctuations to deliver personalized sessions. Regardless of how much experience you have with mindful meditation, Aura helps to refine your practice in a way that fits with your lifestyle.
Before and after your sessions, Aura asks you about your current mood to paint a detailed picture of your emotional state over time. The meditations range from three to 10 minutes, depending on your comfort level and general attention span. And if you’re feeling anxious, it can even send you helpful reminders to slow down with some deep breaths.
You can pick up a lifetime subscription to Aura for iOS or Android for 84 percent off the usual price—just $59.99. Peace of mind? That’s priceless.
