Life is one of the most chaotic things in the world. It seems like there’s always something happening, someplace to be, something to do. I’m not sure if this is how it’s always been or if it’s because we’re more accessible before of these lovely smartphones all of us have.
Well, it’s time to get those smartphones working for our peace of mind–not against it. Here are some apps that are designed to help you find balance in the midst of the chaos of life.
10 Apps Designed To Help You Find Balance
This is probably one of the most popular meditation apps out there. It’s a free app to download and they offer different meditations depending on time and goals. There is a 7-day trial before you have to pay for the specific programs
This is another popular free app that offers guided meditations. This app has a 10-day trial before becoming a paid app.
This one is my favorite. It’s a paid app that costs $1.99 to download but if you’re into cursing and real talk, this is the perfect app for you. You start your meditations based on the time you have available and then you listen to guided meditation and affirmations.
This app is specifically for busy people. It offers 5-minute meditations for quick pick-me-ups in situations that vary from chronic pain to teenage angst to grounding yourself.
This app is made for we fidgety people who need help meditating and centering ourselves. Check out this video on how to train your mind.
Perspective – A Daily Journal
Switching gears from meditation, Perspective is a daily journaling app that allows you to not only keep track of how you’re feeling, but also captures your thoughts, moods and interests in a private place. For those of you that love tracking and statistics, it offers this capability as well.
Grateful: A Gratitude Journal
Life can be hard friends and can seem even harder when that’s all you see. The Grateful app helps you to focus on the things that you’re grateful for so that you can see the light at the end of a tunnel.
Shine – Self-Care & Meditation
Self-care is everything and this app is 100% here to support your efforts. In this free to download app, you can set self-care goals, receive free daily text messages and actively work towards self-care.
Happy Not Perfect
Unlike most meditation apps, when you open this one up, you identify how you’re feeling and the app “prescribes” a meditation to bridge the gap between how you’re feeling and happy. Pretty cool, right?
While meditation and journaling can help a lot, sometimes you need more but just don’t have the access to it. Talkspace offers online therapy with a myriad of specialties ranging from teens to marriage and more.
Full disclosure: I may or may not have gone app shopping as I was putting this post together!
Which of these apps do you think would help you find balance amidst your own chaos?
