Life Time is moving into another world of lifestyle and wellness classes with its digital meditation programs.

If you spend time outdoors, you probably know the state of flow that comes from a combination of focus and movement. With its new digital meditation suite, fitness and lifestyle brand Life Time is teaching users to get into that place of flow.

Meditation on-demand programs are based on Life Time’s current selection of wellness programs. (Currently includes virtual training, on-demand exercise classes and live broadcasts, health and wellness content, and access to Apple Fitness +.)

Digital meditation programs consist of visual and auditory stimulation, such as soothing nature videos and soft sounds. Five categories are presented which include stress management, mental strength, daily gratitude, mindful movement, and sleep improvement. Sessions range from 2 to 15 minutes – tailored to fit a busy schedule.

Benefits of a Lifelong Digital Meditation Program

The American Psychological Association reports that more than 80% of Americans experienced symptoms of stress in January 2021. Stress floods the brain with cortisol. Practicing meditation triggers the release of hormones like serotonin and oxytocin, which reduce inflammation, promote healing, rest and improve your mood, according to Life Time magazine.

Digital meditation software allows users to practice mindfulness and meditation.

According to the Life Time meditation preview video, the difference between the two is that mindfulness increases the ability to focus and focus (left brain). On the other hand, meditation is the art of letting go. It works on the right side of your brain while strengthening the corpus callosum – the part of your brain that connects the right and left hemispheres.

Best of all? The organizers of the Life Time program will release new meditations every day, so there will be a good variety of options.

interested? You can access Life Time meditation programming through Digital and Access Membership Options. New members can get the first month of a digital subscription for free. From there, pricing starts at $15 a month.
