Calm’s mission is to make the world happier and healthier.
Calm is best known as a meditation, sleep and mental wellness app, available in both the App Store and Google Play store. It is the #1 app for mindfulness, meditation and sleep, with over 30 million downloads to date and over 65,000 new users daily. We are dedicated to introducing our world-wide Calm Community to the amazing benefits of mindfulness.
Launched in 2012 by Alex Tew and Michael Acton Smith, Calm was named by Apple as the 2017 iPhone App of the Year; by Google Play as an “Editors' Choice” in 2018; and found by a major study of 200,000 iPhone users to be “the world’s happiest app” – the single app that left users feeling happiest from spending time on it. It has received over 200,000 five star app reviews on either Google Play or the App Store.
Calm creates unique audio content that strengthens mental fitness and tackles some of the biggest mental health challenges of today: stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. The most popular feature on Calm is a 10-minute meditation called, 'The Daily Calm,' that explores a new mindful theme and inspiring concept each day. Calm also contains some 100 Sleep Stories (bed-time stories for grown-ups), plus sleep music, meditation lessons, nature sounds, videos, multi-day programs and Calm Masterclasses delivered by world experts.
The Calm app is free to download but a paid subscription to Calm Premium gives access to over 100 hours of premium content, including an ever-growing library of advanced meditations, soothing Sleep Stories, calming nature scenes, a breathing tool and Calm Masterclasses.
The heart of Calm is digital but Calm is also expanding offline in various ways that bring more peace, clarity and perspective into people’s busy lives. It has partnered with Penguin to publish the Calm Book; developed a natural sleep aid called Sleep Mist and has plans for so much more.
