It’s no understatement that we’re going through uncertain times right now. The pandemic might be winding down, but other worries such as rising costs, job security, and unpredictable weather can keep us awake at night. If melatonin, yoga, or chamomile tea are no longer cutting it, the solution may be as close as your phone. There are apps you can download to help you relax, meditate, and relieve stress and anxiety through calming sounds and music, gently spoken words, and even light stretching. These apps are subscription based, but you can usually get a free trial. It may take trying a few to find the right app, but if you’re feeling highly strung, it will be well worth the effort.
Here are a few popular relaxation apps:
Calm (stress, anxiety, sleep)
Headspace (sleep, guided meditation)
Insight Timer (timed meditation)
iBreathe (focused breathing)
Breathe2Relax (stress relief, relaxing, centering)
Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics (based on neuroscience, not spirituality)
The Mindfulness App (meditation for beginners, sleep)
This is by no means, an all-inclusive list, but just a sampling of what’s out there, and there are tons of apps to choose from. Try some free trials to see which works best for you. If you find that nothing is helping, it might be wise to talk with your doctor or a therapist. They can recommend the best practices to help you cope with the stresses of daily living. Just remember that it’s OK to seek help, whether it’s in electronic or human form, and you’re not alone.
