Today More Than Ever People Are Relying on Meditation Apps to Reduce Stress and Anxiety

According to the American Psychological Association the pandemic has created a national mental health crisis. Based on their annual Stress in America™ survey, which measures the sources and intensity of people’s stress, the country is at an all-time high among children, teens, parents, and adults due to what is known as compounding stressors (American Psychological Association, 2020). Meaning, they are experiencing the added stressors of uncertainty, fear and chaos caused by the pandemic on top of the previous year’s list of concerns: healthcare, mass shootings, climate change, opioid crisis, political unrest, immigration and sexual harassment.

Mediation apps offer a quick and convenient tool to help you relax, focus, and improve your mood. In addition to immediate relief, new studies are showing long-term benefits to the regular use of meditation apps such as: stress intervention and more positive emotions throughout the day.

People are turning to meditation apps to help them manage a variety of symptoms caused by excessive stress such as: sleep disruption, anxiety, and depression. Meditation apps offer a quick and convenient tool to help you relax, focus, and improve your mood. In addition to immediate relief, new studies are showing long-term benefits to the regular use of meditation apps such as: stress intervention and more positive emotions throughout the day.

One particular study from Carnegie Mellon University, tested 114 subjects and found that listening to just one 20-minute meditation a day for two-weeks showed participants had lower blood pressure, cortisol levels and coped better in stressful situations (Vozza, 2019). Stress not only impacts your emotions it can also cause physical illness and disease. So, reducing your stress through a daily smart-phone based meditation practice, like Monroe's Expand, also improves your physical health and well-being.

Meditation apps are not simply the latest fad, in fact, usage is expected to continue growing as people discover the mental, physical and emotional benefits of a daily practice. Monthly downloads of meditation apps are increasing exponentially worldwide.

A more recent market overview published by PRNewswire, using data from UnivDatos Market Insights, predicts the global mindfulness meditation app market will increase 48% by 2027 (UnivDatos Market Insights, 2021).
