Medito App is 100% free. It has no subscription fees, no sign-up page, no in-app purchases, and equally importantly, no ads. And it’s one of the best apps for meditation, mindfulness, and sleep.
Think of it as Calm or Headspace, but available at no cost to you.
Let’s Meet Medito
Launched in April 2020 to free meditation from the clutches of big business, Medito is your go-to app for improving mental well-being.
It will read you bedtime stories, teach you how to meditate and provide daily meditations.
The app is a product of Medito Foundation— a non-profit organization aiming to build a more mindful world.
By improving mental well-being and helping people cope with depression, anxiety, stress, and other negative states of mind.
And they believe meditation and mindfulness are the way to achieving this more mindful world.
Meditation and mindfulness can greatly improve mental wellbeing and can have a transformative effect on all of us as individuals and on society as a whole.– Medito Foundation
The foundation also believes that meditation and mindfulness should be freely accessible to everyone. And that’s why all their content and tools – including the Medito App, are 100% free to use.
With no ads. No in-app purchases. No subscription fees. And no sign-up requests.
Medito App Features
When you download Medito from the App Store or Play Store and launch it on your phone, the image below is what you see. Because as we mentioned, this free meditation app doesn’t have a sign-up page. It goes straight to the action.
Medito App is set up in four sections and has about eight features in total. They are as follows:
- The first section has four features – Daily Meditation, Timer, Downloads, and Sleep.
- The second section has Courses – created to teach beginners and intermediate users how best to meditate.
- The third section features a daily Quote – that refreshes every time you open the app.
- The fourth section has your Stats – a detailed account of how you’re using the app.
And next to the Home button is the eighth feature – Packs.
Let’s explore these 8 features in detail.
1. Daily Meditations
Every day Medito App offers a different meditation session where you get to pick your narrator and the duration of the session. There are different narrators to choose from and the sessions last from 3 minutes up to 20 minutes.
So there’s no reason for you not to meditate daily.
The daily meditations can be listened to online on the app, or downloaded and listened to offline – still on the app. And that’s what the Downloads feature is for.
All audio sessions on the app can be downloaded. This means all meditations, courses, sounds, music, and sleep stories.
And every audio you download is housed in the Downloads section, to be available to you even when you don’t have an internet connection.
What’s more? These downloads never reach your phone’s storage. They’re all handled in the app.
Depending on the time you have to meditate, Medito App offers a simple timer to aid your sessions. The timer is simple with two bells – one to start you off and another to end the session.
And the timer is available for a 3-minute session, up to a 60-minute session.
If you need help falling or staying asleep, and most highly sensitive people do, this feature will come in handy. Medito App offers sleep help in four ways:
- Meditation for Sleep – This features guided meditations and sounds to ease you into a peaceful and restful sleep.
- Sleep Stories – As the name suggests, these are stories to help you fall asleep. And they range from 13 to 30min in length.
- Nature Sounds – Again, these are sounds to help you sleep. So if you prefer sounds to stories or music, these will work great.
- Meditative Music – This features a selection of soundscapes to help create a peaceful ambience. The music is great for relaxation, focus, or meditation.
5. Medito App Courses
At the time of writing this, Medito has a total of 8 courses for meditation and mindfulness practices.
The courses start with a Short intro and then progress from Step 1 to Step 7. And each of the steps is a full course broken down into 5 to 30 audio sessions.
Here are the courses at a glance:
- A short intro – Getting Started
- Step 1 – Learning to Sit
- 2 – Mindfulness
- 3 – Deepen Your Practice
- 4 – Gratitude
- 5 – Loving Kindness
- 6 – 30 Day Challenge
- Step 7 – Great Thinkers
6. Today’s Quote
We believe this feature is self-explanatory. Medito App uses it to share a daily quote to inspire and motivate you – its users. And sometimes it changes, depending on your time zone.
For instance, at the time of writing this post, there was a quote by William Blake. And at the time of editing (same day), there’s this quote by Alan Watts.
One is a great deal less anxious if one feels perfectly free to be anxious.– Alan Watts
The stats feature reports your progress in 4 sections
- Current streak – this reports the number of consecutive days you’ve meditated using the app.
- Listened – This is the total number of minutes you’ve listened to a session; be it a meditation, sleep story, or course session.
- Longest streak – the longest number of consecutive days you’ve listened to a session on the Medito App.
- Total – The total number of sessions you’ve listened to.
8. Packs on Medito App
You’ll find the Packs feature next to the Home button at the bottom of the app. Packs are sets of meditations put together to achieve a common goal.
For instance, there’s a 30-Day Challenge pack with 30 sessions to help you form a consistent habit.
There’s a pack with breathing exercises to help you feel calmer, meditations to help deal with low mood, meditative affirmations, and meditations for sleep.
In total, and at the time of writing this, there are 25 packs to choose from. Each with a common goal.
But before you get started on the packs or other meditations on the app, Medito advises that you get through the courses first.
Unless of course, you’re not a beginner or intermediate meditator.
Why Medito App is an Important Tool for HSPs
As you may already know, we love free and affordable resources. And with our overactive minds as Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), meditation and mindfulness are great tools for achieving a calm state of mind.
This means …
The Medito App is a very important tool for a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Not only does it teach and help us to practice mindfulness and meditation, but it also helps to keep us grounded.
And it does so free of charge.
We pray that God blesses the people at Medito Foundation, and everyone working hard to make this possible. Including the people donating to make sure the app remains free forever.
May you never lack.
