5 Apps To Help You Meditate And Relax

In the modern, stressful lives that we are increasingly consumed by, it is imperative for us to find appropriate relaxation time in order to avoid burnout. We are also lucky in the sense that our smartphones are capable of solving a number of tasks – with rest and meditation also part of it.

There are a number of apps available on the Google Play store which allow rest and meditation and practice of mindfulness. Here’s our ranking of the top 5:

Paced Breathing

Like the name suggests, Paced Breathing assists in timed breathing exercises. It’s a no-nonsense app that gives you specific guidelines on your breathing cycle and helps out with timings and prompts. Sometimes all we need to do is breathe.

This is a free app from the same team that introduced Meditation Oasis and is a great option for those who are looking to get some peace and quiet while at work. The app gives you an option to get a 7 minute meditation break and is an excellent option for busy people who are struggling to find some time for themselves.
