Technology today is used to deliver information to us faster than we could have ever imagined, but the downside to our tech-focused world is that we spend less time living in the moment.

If you find it impossible to keep up with the hustle and bustle of the real world, there's nothing wrong with taking a step back and moving at a relaxed pace.

Ironically, you might not have to take a break from technology to relax. With Mindbliss, you can take advantage of your smartphone to help you achieve inner peace.

Mindbliss uses an AI algorithm to determine how you can use meditation to suit your needs, and you can use it to center yourself for as little as US$29.99.

A Mindbliss subscription gives you access to its library of content, which includes sessions for meditations, mindfulness, breathing and more.

The app helps you become mindful and meditative by tracking your progress with stat reports. Here's a couple of ways Mindbliss can be used to structure your meditations:

Starting Your Day Right

Many of us are out the door as soon as we hop out of bed, without even a second thought about preparing for the day ahead. Even if you're in a hurry, you can use one of Mindbliss's single-sit meditations.

Before you know it, you'll have dedicated yourself a time-slot each morning for meditation; you can use this to explore a serial session that spans the whole work week.

Winding Down Before Bed

Meditation isn't just useful when preparing for the day ahead; it can be used to relieve yourself of stress before bed. Without the pressure of rushing to work, you can enjoy a longer meditation session.

1-year, 3-year, and lifetime subscriptions to Mindbliss usually cost US$89.99, US$269.97, and US$449.95 respectively.

Luckily, you can buy a lifetime subscription to Mindbliss for US$49.99 from the ScienceAlert Academy, or 88 percent off. That's less than the price of a single year at MSRP.
