Don’t Freak Out: A Calm Membership Is 50% Off For Black Friday

Black Friday is approaching, which means incredible deals on the cutest clothes and stocking up on the perfect gifts for your besties. But if you’re an anxious girlie like me, these shopping trips can make you incredibly uneasy (stores are a madhouse this time of year!).

We’re not alone; over 40 million adults have an anxiety disorder, and this stressful time of year can be extremely triggering. It’s important to put your mental health first, and what better way to put yourself first than indulging in some self-care? Now I’m the number one skincare enthusiast but besties, it’s time to spice up our regimen beyond a sheet mask

Calm offers life-changing meditation practices, video lessons on mindful movement, and sleep stories from celebrities like Shawn Mendes, Harry Styles, and Bridgerton actor Jonathan Bailey (shut up and take my money). This holiday season Calm is offering *huge* discounts, with 50% off their annual membership starting Nov. 17 through Nov. 27. 

What is Calm?

ICYMI, Calm is the no. 1 app for sleep, meditation, and relaxation. They seek to improve the community’s overall quality of life by promoting health and happiness through mindfulness tactics. Calm was named “the world’s happiest app” by the Center for Humane Technology.

Calm prides itself on consumers getting better sleep, (a need) and feeling more relaxed from various nature scenes that are perfect to enjoy while studying. Calm also offers masterclasses in mindfulness taught by world-renowned mindfulness experts. 

Upon starting a Calm membership, you can tell the app exactly what you’re looking for: Whether you’re wanting to reduce stress and anxiety, improve your focus, or maybe you’re looking for a little self-improvement. Calm has hundreds of hours of audio content to help you live your best life.

Calm Makes the Perfect Gift.

Whether you’re shopping for a fellow Harrie, (Harry Styles telling me a bedtime story is the only thing on my wishlist) a student worried about post-grad life approaching, or just someone looking to tap into their overall wellness in 2023, (is it too soon to start my New Year’s resolution?) Calm makes the *perfect* gift. 

This huge 50% off sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday makes Calm a useful and affordable gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list. An annual Calm membership is normally $69.99, but this season it’s $34.99. For just the price of a week’s worth of Starbucks (guilty) you can give a loved one the gift of mindfulness and relaxation this holiday season, something that we could all use after this chaotic year.
