    Disappointed

    I was disappointed that this app was not a little more...........
    The breathing part is good but as someone else said, it quickly can be boring.....It left me frustrated and wanting more....
    I would have loved it if it went a little beyond the breathing and maybe had a few recorded guided meditations. I think adding a few meditations along with some images and music would have been easy programming and would have made this mediocre app really good.

    Great Lifestyle App - Do you want positive change in your life?

    I use the Relax app daily in order to effect positive change through breathing. Breathing is something we do every second, but hardly ever think about.

    This app has a well designed UI and good music in order to guide your breathing along. There's even a log to track your progress. All in all I am very happy with my experience in using this app.

    Our minds and bodies are all.we have

    We live in such a fast paced society, and like many, I suffer imsomnia. I also work the overnight shift as a nurse, so I will admit my job is stressful. My home life too is busy, with my husband working from home, 3 small dogs, my daughter saving for her own place, she's 21, my son, 23, in the military on deployment.....I could keep going, but why stress over it?LOL. I taught myself a relxation techniqe, guided imagary, at the age of 13, when I began to suffer from migraines. This app will be used in conjunction to my other relaxation techniques, so I can get to sleep easier. I love it, as the music works as gentle white noise.

    To Hayley_May...

    1. It's 99¿
    2. It's not only breathing. It helps you calm down so you don't cause yourself stress. Your body is important and it's also important to take good care of it as well as your mind.

    Does its job well!

    This is a beneficial app for anyone looking for ways to promote relaxation. It is easy to to use, clear and concise. As a physical therapist, I appreciate this whole concept ( using an app to promote healthly living) and the visual and auditory bio-feedback are great. The 2 sound choices are calming. They cue the person correctly and all the instructional information is medically accurate and relevent. There is much research showing the many benefits of breathing techniques in promotion of health, decrease in stress levels and overall well-being. I play my music from Pandora (or other apps) in the background and guide my own meditation ( most often I use Scripture as meditation). You just can't do better than this for $0.99!

    Get this app

    I have a stressful job, like most people, and finding ways to relax are greatly appreciated. I also have asthma and it helps to increase my lung capassity. The music adds that extra relaxing touch.

    wonderful

    This is a wonderful app. My son often gets anxious and this helps to re focus him and give him time to calm himself and just take a few ( or 10) minutes and he feels better.

    Disappointing

    Needs more than 2 musical options for breath exercises. For me if thts app were free it would still be useless. I found the exercises boring, frustrating, & far from relaxing.

    Excellent addition to yoga training

    I started yoga several months ago and I was having a hard time with learning the breathing techniques. I also have high blood pressure and other chronic ailments. Learning to breath with this app is easy and progressive. It starts out with a beginner, intermediate and advanced. Even though I am still on beginner--I can lower my blood pressure and get so relaxed I drift right off to sleep. My pain lessens the more I fill my lungs with air, deeply.

    I added an external speaker to my Nook because I have difficulty hearing.

    Its simple not easy

    Most folks arent use to controlling their breath.
    It takes practice and time to see the benefits of
    Deep breathing. Slowing down long enough to let the body
    Relax is a foreign concept where i live. This app helped me get back into my breathing practice. I use it when i have to wait in an office, with my headphones on. I use in the morning when im starting my day. It can be used anytime i feel anxious or stressed. Love this app. This app is far from boring ,once i started to explore and try some of the advanced breathing techniques i was blown away. Best natural high there is!
