6 Stress Relieving Smartphone Apps

6 Stress Relieving Smartphone Apps that you can use to calm yourself during the COVID19 pandemic

Hello my friends, how are you doing this week? I hope you all have taken some time to rest, relax and release some of the stress that has been building up during this COVID-19 pandemic.


As I was going through my old blog posts, I came across this one from 2018 and wanted to check out the apps to ensure they were still valid so that I could share them again with you.

  1. Simple Habit

Is an app for busy people (raising my hand) and is available for iOS and Android.  Simple Habit is an on-demand platform that offers simple 5-minute lessons, featuring more than 1,000 meditations guided by mindfulness teachers from around the world.  You can try it FREE for 30 days, then it’s $7.99 month thereafter.

  1. Headspace

This is another app for iOs and Android that features an easy to use interface that offers a FREE 10-day beginner’s series which guides you through the essentials of meditation and mindfulness. It’ll give you a solid foundation to build your practice on.

  1. Stop, Breathe & Think

An app that aims to give you exactly what it says in the title. The chance and skills to stop everything, just breathe, and think. The guided meditations cover a range of goals and are constructed to help you take some time out and concentrate on yourself.

  1. Calm

I love my Bath & Body Works, Aromatherapy Stress Relief 3-Wick Candle, Eucalyptus Spearmint candle along with this app which is designed to help you be calm. There are many stunning backgrounds that you can stare at for ages, and a range of meditations.  Calm provides a space for you to get away from it all without having to go anywhere.

Downloading apps that offers techniques that helps to clear your head, reduce stress, sleep better and enjoy greater overall happiness is definitely worth downloading.

  1. Happify

App that offers positive psychology, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy. As the name suggests, Happify’s number one goal is to help us all feel happier and more emotionally fulfilled.

  1. buddhify

buddhify is an interactive app designed to introduce users to techniques of urban meditation, thereby fostering a state of mindfulness, and well-being in everyday life situations. The app defines mindfulness as focused awareness of the user’s current experience. $2.99 Download
