What We Like About Unstress: 21 Days of Meditation
We love that the meditations are guided and very straightforward. In the past, we’ve tried meditation apps, and you never knew the quality or teacher very well before just trying it out. With Unstress, you always know the meditations are recorded with high quality equipment, have a specific focus, and are led by experienced teachers.
It was also nice to be guided through a meditation versus being told to just “turn off your brain” or sit for a period of time. This felt much more applicable to our day and goals versus other programs.
The meditations helped us let go of negativity and anxiety (stemming from the news and social media most days), and it helped us refocus on positivity and gratitude.
This one 10-minute habit helped us start living in the present and even be more patient in our relationships!
Another thing we love is that each meditation is within the app and clearly labeled. It’s really easy to find each day’s meditation and get started quickly.
Finally, we also love that Beachbody’s Unstress: 21 Days of Meditation for Relaxation, Calm, and Less Anxiety is included with Beachbody on Demand! So if you are already streaming Beachbody programs, you get access to this for free!

Beachbody’s Unstress Meditation Calendar
The benefits of meditation come when you’re consistent, and there is something powerful about committing to a new habit daily.
That’s why we love this calendar!
You’ll also be able to see what each day’s meditation will focus on. While each session is designed to help you reduce anxiety and relax, each meditation is unique and focuses on one thing in particular – like a positive mindset, balance, gratitude, etc.
We liked having the calendar printed so we could mark off our progress each day, but it’s not required by any means.
The set-up within the app clearly labels each day.
When should you meditate?
You can choose to meditate at any point during your day!
For this program, it’s recommended to meditate first thing in the morning so that you set the tone for the day; however, anytime of day is great!
Another optimal time to meditate are after your workout.
Others also suggest meditating when you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, but in those moments we had a hard time clearing our mind…maybe we need more practice!
