The Bloom App: Is It Worth It?

This post has PR items and a discount code. Please read the end of the post for more details. 


Meditation is one of those form of practices which is taken in different ways. Some see it as a pointless technique and not worth the effort and time. But I am the latter - someone who loves it and sees it as a great form of self care and a great form of wellbeing practice.

The Bloom App


I like to practice meditation a few times a week, especially after a day in work, when I am feeling stressed, angst or need a helping hand in helping me to drop off to sleep when my brain is whirring at 100mph. 


I've watched countless numbers of meditation videos on YouTube and after doing the same ones repeatedly over time, I was looking for another way to get my meditation on. Then along came the Bloom App, an app dedicated to wellness, meditation and relaxation. 


I've been using the Bloom App for a little while now, and I can honestly say that I don't know how I survived without the app before - it's been a godsend! From different types of meditation to yoga videos and even relaxing activities and GAMES to play - the app has so much to offer and has been a welcome addition to my ever-growing home screen.

3) IS  THERE  A  WIDE  VARIETY  OF  MEDITATION  VIDEOS?
___________
There certainly is! On the app, there are 500+ exercises to help with wellbeing. From CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to yoga classes, there's an activity/video for everyone! There are also sleep style meditation videos to help you drift off to a natural sleep, meditation videos for the day and evening, so you won't be stuck for choice! 


4) YOU  SAID THE  BLOOM  APP  CONTAINS  GAMES, WHAT  GAMES DO  THEY  HAVE?
___________
The Bloom App has a variety of relaxing games to help you take a breather and just, well, relax! There's a colouring game, breathing exercises, a Bejewelled style game, matching colours game and a few more, so you won't be bored or disappointed!


5) WHAT  ELSE  DOES  THE  BLOOM  APP  HAVE  TO  OFFER?
___________
The Bloom app offers tips and advice of how to create a calming space and how to practice gratitude. The app also offers different courses such as meditation for beginners, being in the moment and even a course of different methods to cope with anxiety (everybody is different though, what may work for some may not work for others). You can log your mood everyday and keep a diary of your feelings and see how far you've come over time.

6) WHAT  IS  YOUR  VERDICT  OF  THE  BLOOM  APP?
___________
If you are looking for a wide range of meditation style videos and activities in one place, look no further than the Bloom App. It's one of the best apps I've added to my phone for a long time now. It's really helped my wellbeing, helped me sleep a lot better and given me more energy in a way. I feel more energised when I wake up in the mornings now because I'm practicing a night-time meditation before bed to help me drift off to sleep. Would I subscribe to this full time? I'm still in two minds. Purely because I'm one of those people that is inconsistent if that makes sense? I'll keep using it for as long as I can, but once I try all the videos etc, I may not bother to use it again. But that's just my own point of view, but I can definitely say that it will definitely benefit a lot for you! 


I hope this has helped you to consider whether you should download the Bloom App or not! Let me know your thoughts below!

  3. I've heard of the bloom app, one of my friends uses it and has said the tips are great. It sounds like it would be helpful but much like you I'm a bit inconsistent with my meditation and using apps like this. I would love to try it and see what it's like for myself though. Thanks for sharing

  5. This sounds great. I've used the calm app before which is a similar type of vibe, but I've not actually heard of this one. I think giving yourself dedicated time to chill is so important! Especially after a days work like you say!

  6. I haven't actually heard of this app before. I actually thought before reading this full post that Bloom sounded like a period tracking app! I love how many different things are included in this app. Really helpful for if one day you need something different to meditation to calm your mind - that's where a game might come in really handy! I know for myself, playing simple games on my phone can REALLY help me switch off and calm my mind x

  11. I've only ever had one app that was for mindfulness which was headspace and I'll be honest I just didn't get used to using it. I find apps quite difficult to use to switch off, because I feel I have to get past a whole load of social media and other apps first before actively making me get onto them! xx

  21. As a hypnotist who encourages people to take time to relax it's always good to hear that these apps are helping people find calmness. If you don't want to sign up for something regularly you can always build up your own personalised collection of meditations so you can pick and choose your favourites and then keep them forever. I recommend compiling them in a playlist. Make sure that you have it set to just play one track and then stop. They don't have to be long tracks either. I usually write ones that are reasonably short because a short time spent relaxing can go a long way :)
