While I am a huge fan of limiting the time you spend using electronics, there are some really cool ways that tech is being used to improve health and wellness. I have tried a ton of wellness apps - for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness. Here are my 5 favorites:
Insight Timer is a meditation app with a large selection of audio tracks to choose from, including guided meditations, music, and talks by teachers. It is easy to use with an excellent selection of content to choose from. Insight Timer can be used on your phone, plus they are a website/desktop version. Here are some of my favorite meditations:
Breathscape generates music from your breath in real-time, creating an immersive experience that effortlessly guides you into deep states of relaxation and meditation. You place your phone on your stomach, and the app uses biofeedback to gently retrain your body to take deeper, slower breaths. Taking slow, deep, intentional breaths activates the parasympathetic “rest and digest” pathway in the brain and sends a signal to the body that it’s safe and ok to relax. This simple practice is clinically proven to relax and unwind the nervous system.
Yoga-Go is a great yoga app for beginners. It provides personalized, simple home-based yoga and pilates routines to meet a variety of goals. Do you want to lose some weigh, or improve your hip mobility? You can customize your workout. This app also offers Face Yoga (which I love!)
Drinking water sounds simple, and yet many of us are chronically dehydrated. This app helps you remember to drink water and tracks your progress.
Journify is an audio journal. If you're like me, and your mind is buzzing with thoughts, ideas and pop-up wisdom all the time - then this app is for you. It's great to use to capture your bright ideas - and also for quick processing/reflection on things that triggered you during your day. Journaling about your feelings can reduce mental distress and is a highly encouraged practice for people dealing with anxiety.
Journify also has a mood analyzer and burnout tracker feature that monitors and breaks down your mood and mental state over time. It helps you check in on your daily sleep, energy, and motivation to know when there’s a decline or improvement in your wellbeing.
