Smiling Mind: Meditation App

The purpose of this application is to deliver programmes that are underpinned by mindfulness and positive psychology strategies and designed to build mental fitness and resilience. The main aim of the Smiling Mind app is to provide accessible, life-long tools to support healthy minds.

Although Smiling Minds is an Australian owned company it is currently being used to great effect in Irish schools. Irish schools are putting huge emphasis on bringing a sense of calm into their classrooms and Smiling Minds is proving to be a worthwhile method for this. 

The app provides an easily accessible introduction to meditation for kids based on mindfulness-based programmes that have been designed to support wellbeing and positive mental health. The app provides educators of children aged between 7-18 years old with a range of free resources including complete lesson plans that complement their own curriculum. For example, for younger children the app has developed a method of training children to understand breathwork whereas in the older section of the app there are features that discuss how to develop a growth mindset.

Although the Smiling Mind app may be marketed towards a younger demographic it is suitable for everybody. What is unique about this application is that it provides a thorough deep dive into mindfulness and meditation from the very basics up to the more advanced levels of growth mindset. These topics transcend age and can be used by managers, team leaders and professionals also.
