Mindfulness Daily is an app designed to help users increase mindfulness throughout their daily routine in a flexible and personalized way. The home screen has three main sections: Pause, Practice, and Lifelong. ‘Pause’ provides an opportunity to do a quick 15-second breathing exercise. ‘Practice’ provides a variety of guided and non-guided meditation practices ranging from 30-seconds to 30-minutes. The ‘Lifelong’ section provides an overview of mindfulness practices and check-ins completed by the user each day. ‘Check-ins’ are for users to record their current mood, mindfulness level, and stress in the body. Additional features include customized reminders for the user to complete mindfulness practices, check-ins, or performance nudges.

Research on this App

Mindfulness-based therapy has evidence as an intervention for a variety of mental health problems. A meta-analysis considering 209 studies found that Mindfulness-based therapy reduced severity of anxiety, stress and depressive symptoms amongst adults (Khoury et al., 2013). This smartphone application has not been investigated in an RCT, however a meta-analysis reviewed 15 RCTs of adults receiving workbook and audio CD or web-based self-help mindfulness or acceptance-based intervention, with no or reduced therapist support (Cavanagh et al., 2014). They found that mindfulness-or acceptance-based self-help interventions resulted in fewer anxiety and depressive symptoms as compared to the control groups.
