'Oak Meditation' Hosts Calming Meditation and Breathing Exercises

There's a bit of inherent irony in using a meditation app, but Oak Meditation uses loving design practices to break out of the paradox. Every screen and tile in the app is designed with hand-painted watercolor images that are scanned into a digital form, making every interaction with it as calming as the exercises themselves are meant to be.

Meditation apps are tremendously common, which is something of a funny paradox. Many people find themselves lost in scattered thoughts in large part because of their reliance on the distraction machines that are their smartphones, so another smartphone app hardly seems like the solution. With its combination of hand-painted images and ancient meditative and breathing exercises, Oak Meditation manages to break that logical inconsistency.
