Nowadays, life can be rather hectic.
Things move at a fast pace- there are many forms of communication available to us, and along with that comes LOADS of information. At times, the stimulus of ideas, information, colour, and sound can be overwhelming for the mind and body. This constant flow of stimulation creates an internal buzz that is not entirely healthy for our systems, which need adequate time to unplug, unwind and be revitalized.
One way to give your system a rest is to utilize relaxation app’s. These are programs you load onto your cell phone through the App store, and you can easily listen to the programs anytime you’d like. Caregivers, you can even listen to a 1-minute relaxation as you wait for a Doctor’s appointment.
Many of the relaxation app’s are free or low cost, and can be used on both Smart phones and Android type phones.
Here are a few App ideas:
