Feeling Stressed out? Here are 4 Stress Relief Android Apps To Relax
Life has its ups and downs, and can’t avoid getting stressed out. However, staying stressed isn’t good for your health or the people around you. Therefore, you need to find a way to relax when life seems out of control. To help you with relaxing, I know 5 relaxation apps for Android that can do wonders to calm you down. Let’s see what they can do for you.
Starting with something simple and effective, this app lets you listen to different sounds of nature to help you relax. Whether you are having trouble sleeping or just want to take a relaxing break from work, these nature sounds will relax you and help you clear up your mind. You can listen to the continuous sound of rain, thunder, water stream, campfire, birds, and more.
The sound works in the background in a continuous loop. You can also set the sounds as alarm right from the app and wake up to a relaxing sound.
Viridi is a calming game where you can plant and grow plants in real-time. It might seem boring at first, but it’s utterly relaxing when you get involved. You can have a bunch of plants that will require proper care to grow. The colorful design and seeing how your beautiful plants grow with your effort keep you calm and give you a sense of achievement. And as the plants require timely attention, you’ll always have something relaxing to go back to.
You’ll also get new seeds every week to grow, and there is an in-game store to buy different types of plants.
Breathing exercises can do an amazing job of relieving stress and even help lower high blood pressure. However, you need to follow a right breathing pattern that can help you relax. This is where the Breathing Zone app will help you. It comes with 5-60 minutes breathing sessions that help you find the right pattern to relax. With easy to follow voice and animation instructions, you’ll have no problem following the right pattern.
Breathing Zone costs $2.49. However, if you are looking for a free breathing exercise app, then you can also try Breath2Relax. It’s a similar app with built-in free breathing exercises.
7 Cups offers 7 activities to help you relax. It’s mainly popular for its free chat feature where you can talk to trained listeners in a complete anonymous chat. The listeners are trained to make it comfortable for you to talk your heart and receive an encouraging response. There are over 160,000 listeners with detailed profiles and you can get help in up to 140 different languages.
Apart from live chat, you can also subscribe for a $12.99 monthly subscription to access other features. This includes relaxing exercises, wellness tests, inspiring videos, physical activities, and access to professional therapists.
I personally found Viridi and Nature Sounds to be very relaxing and easy to use. Both are completely free and you can easily incorporate them into your daily routine. Although if you are under extreme stress or even in a depression, then I’ll recommend going for 7 Cups and Breathing Zone. Do let us know in the comments if you know any other good stress relief apps.
