Top 5 apps to help you relax

Selfcare Download Free

Selfcare uses everyday tasks like watering plants, reading, and putting away laundry to declutter your character's space and organize your mind. You'll tap different objects around the room, which take you to mini-games or display self-help phrases. Available on iOS.


Calm asks you how you'd best like to let off steam, and starts with a soothing voice talking you through simple things you can do to relieve stress, like sitting up straight, breathing exercises, and meditation. There are a number of tracks that you can choose from, like a recording of Bob Ross as he's painting. You start with a 7-day free trial, and then you pay $59.99 per year for basic access. Available on iOS and Android.

Headspace Download Free

The main focus of Headspace is meditation. When you sign up, it starts by first getting to know you by asking a few questions about your experience with meditation. You'll then choose the time of day you like to meditate the most and the app will set a reminder to begin sessions lead by different people that vary in length. Available for iOS and Android.

My Oasis Download Free

My Oasis lets you create your own floating sanctuary in the sky and inhabit it with animals and plants. Collect hearts by tapping anywhere on the screen and use those to get more animals, plants, aircraft, and decorations. My Oasis has a dreamy aesthetic that makes you feel like nothing could ever go wrong. Available for iOS and Android.

Terrarium Download Free

Terrarium is an app where you can maintain your own greenhouse. You collect oxygen bubbles that are released by your plants, allowing you to level up and select different types of plants. The more you level up, the more oxygen bubbles you have, and not only can you get more plants, but also fertilizer and bug repellant. Double and triple the amount of bubbles you can get by watching short in-game advertisements. Available for iOS and Android.

Now, take a deep breath, clear your mind, and enjoy a calmer day.
