    Given the increasing focus on mental health, this should be a priority.

    Would something similar be possible from Google Fit, or Fitbit?

    this is going to be major for me keeping a subscription. Mindfulness is probably a major influencer of mood along with exercise. If I can’t monitor this my reason for keeping going with exist is pretty low.

    This would be a good thing - because I would like to know how my meditation practice is changing my mood and my productivity

    If you’re looking to just track days you meditated rather than length, this is another that will be covered by tracking “meditation” as a tag in custom tracking.

    Understanding the impact of meditation on all the other things I am tracking would be a wonderfully valuable feature!

    I’m with Ed F on this one: really want to be able to correlate mindfulness practice with mood in a more reliable, automated way.

    I tried Exist a while back and left. But after the implementation of tags, I think I’ll be sticking around. However, I would love this implementation so that I can also track the length of my meditation instead of just using a tag.

    While I get I can use meditation as a tag, I use meditation apps that work with HealthKit. So the data is just sitting there and it’s accurate. Seems like a shame for it to not get used in correlations or for it to be missed if I don’t remember to check it.

    This is so essential

    Can’t wait for this. Being able to correlate the actual amount of time I spend meditating – instead of just as a yes/no tag – to other parts of my mental and physical well-being would be so interesting.

    Big thing for me too. Anything I can do to help (coding / testing) just let me know…

    I currently use custom tags to keep track of this, it would be amazing if it could be added.

    This would be such fascinating data to add to the mix, specifically seeing how the amount of time spent meditating corresponds with sleep/mood/activity/productivity/etc!

    Yeah, was just missing this today. Also, Mindful minutes is such a great variable to compare to mood data.

    Now that I have started playing with Forest (a fantastic app) I’m very eager to get Mindful Minutes from Apple Health into Exist!
