Meditation, an ancient practice of calming the mind, would seem to be incompatible with modern technology, with its emphasis on speed and connectivity. But as more and more Americans have embraced meditation as an antidote to hyper-connected lives, the world of technology has joined the movement. The result is a growing field of meditation tools — from apps and podcasts to timers and online classes — and a growing acknowledgment that, paradoxically, technology can help us to turn inward, still our minds, and shut out the many distractions around us.

You can meditate while sitting in front of your computer on calm.com, the website that uses soothing music, meditation timers and video recordings of nature. Watch waves crashing, brooks babbling, snow falling and the sun setting while you enjoy a short, timed meditation — without ever leaving your desk. Calm.com now also comes in app form so that you can enjoy a little zen on your iPhone.

Available for free on calm.com and download for iPhone from the App Store.
