Are you feeling stressed and worried? Take out your Android phone and try out the apps that we’re going to list in this post.
All ready? Let’s get started.
- Fidget Spinner
Fidget spinners were really popular some years back. They had a great way of making you feel calm and relaxed with their somewhat hypnotic whirling and rotations.
The next time you feel a little stressed but don’t have a physical spinner at hand, you can simply down the Fidget Spinner app on your phone and get started. This particular app by Ketchapp provides a range of different features that make the whole user experience engaging and addictive…in a good way.
- Fluid Simulation
Swirly colors have a thing of making you feel calm and peaceful. If you think that’s the case, Fluid Simulation by Pavel Dobryakov is a good app that you can download on your device. The logic behind this app is simple. You can adjust some settings, and then swipe your finger across the screen to get some nice colorful effects.
The intensity of the animations as well as the quality/clarity can be adjusted as per the capabilities of your phone. The good thing about this app is that the menu button disappears when you start swiping your finger. You won’t have to worry about the button obstructing your view during the animations themselves.
Are you someone who finds peace and calm in art? Colorfy is more or less what it sounds like: a coloring app. You can spend some time filling colors in intricate mandalas without the trouble and hassle of physical color pencils.
Whenever you start feeling a little stressed or anxious, do a little coloring and you’ll find your mental calm coming back into place.
In a lot of situations, stress and anxiety can be fixed easily with some deep breathing. If you can’t remember to do that yourself or if you can’t figure out how, there’s an app that you can keep on your phone for it. And that is the Breathwrkapp.
Breathwrk comes with 100s of breathing exercises (all backed by science) that can help you ease up when you start getting stressed. When using Breathwrk, you can also enjoy some nice and aesthetic scenery in the form of background images during the exercises.
The app makes itself engaging and interesting thanks to the personalized breathing routines and programs that you can choose and follow. Plus, since new classes are added daily, there is always some new stuff that you can come back to.
myNoise is one of our personal favorites. This app is available for both Android and iOS, and it is also accessible via PC at the actual website.
myNoise essentially gives you access to a large trove of calming ambient sounds. For example, with the Primeval Forest soundtrack, you can put on your headphones, close your eyes and imagine yourself lying down on the quiet forest floor, nodding off to the chirping of birds and the sounds of the nearby babbling brook.
An excellent feature that myNoise provides is the adjustable sounds in the different soundtracks. You can increase a particular sound’s volume while completely shutting off another one. This way, you can get a customized ambiance to help you stay calm and peaceful during your work.
If you’ve tried all the apps that we’ve mentioned above, you’re probably feeling pretty calm and relaxed right now. There are a lot of other similar apps that you can use as well, but the ones listed above are a good place to get started.
