Manage Stress with Centered

Feeling stressed? There’s an app for that! Everyone feels it at some point. When it gets out of hand, though, it can take a toll on your health. Taking steps to manage your stress is important to your overall wellbeing. … and you’re in luck.

Centered is the new mobile app from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT). It’s a powerful stress management tool that guides you through meditation sessions and records your steps, like a pedometer. Not a bad app to take with you on-the-go!

Centered App


Here’s how it works:

  • Set a daily steps goal and a weekly mindful meditation goal.
  • The more progress you make toward meeting your goals, the closer your meditation and physical activity circles move. Eventually, the circles merge into one, or become centered, when you meet both your steps goal and your meditation goal.
  • Choose from three meditation sessions – short, mindful or body awareness.
  • Record activity automatically when you have your iPhone with you. No need to open the app!  
  • To get the Centered app, text Centered to 33633* or search for Centered in the iTunes App Store.

Guess what?!  The Centered App has already been called one of the 9 best apps that work with Apple’s HealthKit tool, and it’s available for iPhone® 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
