Teacher Review

Smiling Mind app provides an excellent opportunity for users to commence regular mindfulness practice and maintain regular mindfulness practice.
 
The app provides graded engagement, starting with an explanation of mindfulness and shorter meditations. It does move onto longer meditations, however the shorter meditations are still available. The meditations are targeted to the age of the individual logged on.
 
There are very limited visual prompts for this app. A timer is shown for the meditations, a graph is shown to rate well-being and written prompts. The Smiling Mind Website also provides support for schools and work places to increase participation for groups.

Smiling Mind offers programs for a variety of age groups, including 7-9, 10-12, 13-15, 16-18 and adults. The app has an easy-to-use interface for keeping track of your progress over time, both in terms of how many sessions you complete and how your emotions change. Families can set up sub-accounts from one login as well. The company behind this app is 100% not-for-profit. They are seeking to create a positive change in the world for every generation.

Description

Smiling Mind is modern meditation, a unique web and app-based program developed by psychologists and educators to help bring balance to people’s lives.

Just as we eat well and stay fit to keep our body healthy, meditation is about mental health and looking after the mind. Smiling Mind is a not-for-profit organisation that works to make mindfulness meditation accessible to all.

Our vision is to see mindfulness meditation on the Australian National Curriculum by 2020. Our mission is to provide accessible, life-long tools based in mindfulness meditation. Our programs are designed to assist people in dealing with the pressure, stress and challenges of daily life. We offer programs for 7 to 18 years old.
