Life is hectic, to say the least. But focusing on the present moment can help quiet the chaos, helping make you a more positive and productive person. Easier said than done, right?
Although mindfulness seems like an impossible luxury with everything going on in the world, there are ways to block out the noise and unlock the benefits of being present. And you don’t have to go at it alone. These four meditation and mindfulness apps that are on sale are a great starting point for beginners looking to learn how to begin mindfulness and meditation practices every day.
Each of these apps can help reduce stress and bring more positivity into your life. Take a look below at these four on-sale apps and how they work:

Each track has been edited, remastered and reproduced to remove distracting elements and keep you present in the moment.
A lifetime premium subscription to Focus@Will usually costs $300, but you can sign up today for just $70.
