Feeling frustrated, anxious, and helpless about current events? Breathe 11:11 is a new, free app that will remind you to take a deep breath, make a wish, and connect with others at 11:11 daily. Many people around the world already make a wish at 11:11 and have positive—even magical—associations with this time, the app's makers say, adding that Breathe 11:11 is intended to "amplify this phenomenon to catalyze more optimism, peace, and synchronicity in the world today."
The iOS version of the app includes a custom sound that you can set to chime at 11:11 in any time zone, allowing you to breathe, wish, and connect simultaneously with friends, family, and others across the globe. It also allows you to set a personalized notification to remind you of your wish or intention at 11:11, and provides a heat map to see where people are using the app around the world. The app also includes a podcast featuring interviews with numerologists, psychologists, artists, physicists, mystics, and everyday people who have "incredible" 11:11 stories to share.
Breathe 11:11 was created by the founders of Ripple Strategies, a social impact PR firm that also founded the Mothership Yoga Lounge in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. The app is currently available on iOS and Android, but it officially launches on 11/11/17 (naturally). Learn more from the launch video.
