Tech Byte: Apps That Help with Stress Relief
It’s normal to feel stressed out or anxious right now. We’re in the middle of a global pandemic, and it’s affecting all aspects of our lives.
In this segment of Tech Byte, Emily Cassulo looks at some smartphone apps that can help you destress.
Simple Habit Sleep Meditation app
Creators of the Simple Habit Sleep Meditation app claim you’ll feel better in just five minutes.
It offers on-the-go meditations that work with your schedule – whether you want to take a quick break at work, or you’re getting ready for a stressful, big event. You just put in how much time you want to spend meditating.
The app also offers more than 500 free sessions. You can even get coaching from world-renowned experts.
Yoga Studio: Mind & Body app
Again, you don’t need to go to a yoga class at a gym to do some relaxing stretches. You can learn how to do them right from your phone.
The Yoga Studio: Mind & Body app is a great way to take yoga classes for all skill levels.
You even have access to a guide with the different yoga poses.
There are guided audio meditations, as well.
Stop, Breathe & Think Kids app
You’re likely not the only one stressed out at home right now. The pandemic affects kids too, and there’s a meditation app just for them.
The Stop, Breathe & Think Kids app uses mindful games to check into how they’re feeling with fun emojis. They can also try mindful missions and meditations geared toward those emotions.
The app also has mindful sleep stories, so it’s easier for them to calm down before going to bed.
