It’s that time of the year again – where the stresses of work can become overwhelming and all you long for is a good break. Instead of binge-eating and watching Netflix, try out these 5 mindfulness apps that will take the stress away:
Created and produced in Melbourne, Smiling Mind is Australia’s leading wellness app. It helps to reduce stress by providing a space for clarity, calmness and contentment. Through guided audio programs that only takes a few minutes, Smiling Mind is an easy introduction to mindfulness techniques you can use throughout your life.
Named the 2017 iPhone App of the Year, Calm is designed to help you sleep better, boost confidence and reduce stress and anxiety.
The app offers the ‘7 Days of Calm Series’ and body scans for easing tension in your body. With more than 20 soothing audio/visual nature backgrounds, trackable timed sessions and free guided meditations, this will help rejuvenate your mind and soul.
Starting out on a free 10-day mindfulness meditation program known as ‘Take 10,’ Headspace focuses on brain training through a series of meditations. If you’re someone who needs accountability, the app also lets you connect with friends and track your own statistics.
Don’t get so busy with life that you forget to take a daily pause to check in on yourself and be present in the moment. By signing up to this app, you’ll receive daily meditation and mindfulness recommendations tuned to how you feel. Stop, Breathe and Think serves
to help you de-stress and fits nicely around your schedule and environment, just like a personal mindfulness coach in your pocket.
The simplicity of this app makes it super easy to navigate and use. Choose between a guided meditation session or pair it with the calming sounds of nature or soothing music. Give yourself some space by customising the length of background sound, even after the session ends.
With these apps, you’re sure to feel calmer, more focused, and rejuvenated in mind, body and soul. All it takes is a little time each day cultivating your mental health to live a happier and more carefree life. Want to learn more relaxing techniques for the mind and soul?
