thanks for letting me know, I will stop recommending it to people too.
Another #meditation app I want to recommend is the open source #MeditationAssistant. Of course available on F-Droid.
The app is very basic, but helpful: on the one hand it has handy timers to sound bells at the beginning, interval, and end of the meditation (can also use custom sound). On the other hand it has a nice meditation journal integrated, including calendar overview.

Are there reasons to switch away from mutt? I'm considering switching to it, so I'd be very curious.
"The students who exerted more self-control were not more successful in accomplishing their goals. It was the students who experienced fewer temptations overall who were more successful when the researchers checked back in at the end of the semester. What’s more, the people who exercised more effortful self-control also reported feeling more depleted. So not only were they not meeting their goals, they were also exhausted from trying." - https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/1/15/16863374/willpower-overrated-self-control-psychology

Libreboot laptop prices reduced on http://RetroFreedom.com - E.g. X200 was £298, now £228.
I have a large stock surplus, and things are returning to pre-pandemic normal in the UK. It is viable for me to operate at reduced prices, like in 2017/2018.
Also: I'm on course to getting a new Libreboot release out, ETA early to mid October. My purpose is to polish the current 20210522 release (released on 22 May 2021).
I plan another release in November/December. Coreboot 4.15 comes out in ~November.
@wim_v12e most importantly it has a selection of audio files, each of which is a guided meditation. They put together programmes to follow, for instance a 30 day programme with a slow introduction to meditation. Also a few specific topics, like meditations to initiate sleep.
And then they also have a tracker for when you meditated, and before each meditation you get asked a couple of questions about how you're doing mentally, and then you can track progress if you want.
