Let’s face it, we live in a world that’s always moving, which leaves us with little to no time to really stop and get some perspective.  But, there’s a solution – the meditation app.  Although not a complete replacement for in-person classes, meditation apps are great for those trying to keep on a meditation routine, but don’t exactly have enough time in a day to visit their  local studio.

It’s a growing trend.  Meditation app popularity has increased (with over 1000 apps currently available) and are helping meditators of all kinds keep to their meditative schedules – while staying true to their focus of a healthier life.

So, without further ado, here are the 5 best meditation apps for the iPhone that we think will help you stay focused on a healthier lifestyle.

1.  Calm 

Price: FREE (in-app purchase available)
