We help people to relax, meditate and sleep.


Our mission is to make the world happier and healthier.


We’re the #1 app for mindfulness and wellness, with over 34 million downloads and over 225,000 5-star reviews. We were delighted recently to be named both Apple’s App of the Year and Editors’ Choice by Google Play – and to be ranked by a recent study of 200,000 iPhone users by the Center for Humane Technology as “the world’s happiest app”.



Calm was founded by British entrepreneurs Michael Acton Smith OBE and Alex Tew, with a mission to make the world healthier and happier, and eventually become the “Nike for the mind”.

We began developing our library of guided meditations and soothing nature sounds and scenes.



Towards the end of 2014, Tamara Levitt, brought her 20+ years of meditation expertise to the Calm mission, joining the company as Head of Mindfulness, and has been Calm’s Meditation Instructor ever since.



We launched the Calm book with Penguin. It's since been published worldwide.



In May, we launched The Daily Calm, a 10-minute guided meditation. The feature became an instant hit among users, helping them to cultivate a daily meditation practice.


We created the Breathe Bubble in August so that people could catch their breath and relax even with only 30 seconds to spare. 


In December, we launched Sleep Stories, bedtime stories for grown-ups to relax the body, settle the mind and drift into dreamland. 



In July, we launched Sleep Mist, an all-natural aromatherapy sleep spray that pairs with the Sleep Stories to provide a unique, multi-sensory sleep solution, combining scent and sound. 

In September, we released Calm Music, a collection of long music tracks for focus, relaxation or sleep. 


In December, we teamed up with (RED) and raised $46,000 or 138,000 days of life-changing HIV medication in the fight to #endAIDS.



In January, we introduced  Calm Masterclasseslife-changing audio classes delivered by world-renowned experts.  


What's next?

The heart of Calm is digital and we'll continue to expand our offering within the app. At the same time, we're also growing offline in various ways that bring more peace, clarity and perspective into people’s busy lives. Stay tuned for another book collaboration with Penguin, Calm clothing, Calm home-ware, Calm hotels and more. 


We're a small and mighty team passionate about mental fitness, relaxation and sleep.

We meditate together every day. Mindfulness and making time for rest combined with talent and hard work are the keys to our creativity, success and awesome working culture. We're hiring a few more superstars. Maybe you'd like to join us!?


We're learning from each other and growing together — it's so inspiring. 

We love connecting with Calm users from across the globe in the Daily Calm Community, on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Comment on one of our posts or use the hashtags #DailyCalm or #YearOfCalm to join the conversation!
