Apps have been helping you out with lots of stuff these days. You use organizer apps to plan your days, word processor apps to edit, print or share your documents, health apps to keep tabs on your health and fitness goals and loads of games to keep you busy while you are waiting for someone who is late for an hour. Mental stress is another area where many of us need help. Working all day can put a lot of stress in the mind and if you have a desk job eye strains make the matter worse. Luckily, right when you are feeling stressed or eye strained you can take out your smartphone, plug in your earphones and then open one of the relaxation apps mentioned in this post. Here is your list of best relaxation apps:
This is currently a top trending free app in the Google Play Store. Depending upon your timezone this app will adjust your screen’s color and change it into warm red during evening and night. Compared to the normal blue light emitted by tablet and phone screens, Twilight adjusted screen is said to significantly lower eye strain in low lighting condition. This app is said to not only relieve eye strain but also relax your brain for better sleep. I have tried this app for a few days now and I wouldn’t say it works hundred percent but it definitely relaxed my eyes before bed.
This app generates binaural beats sounds which is said to help tune your brain frequency to enter relaxing meditative states, induce better sleep and also increase focus and learning. There are three categories of sounds in the app- Sleep and Healing, Meditation and relaxation and Focus and learning.
Relax Melodies: Sleep and Yoga
Relax Melodies plays a wide variety of sound to help you sleep. You can select from soothing sounds of streams, rain, flute to thunderstorms, cat purrs and more. Choose whatever helps you sleep. The app also allows mixing of different sounds. You can then setup a timer for the sound as you drift to sleep. In the free version you will get 46 sounds and you can go pro to unlock a total of 94 sounds which includes 6 binaural beats.
Sleep as Android
Sleep as android is not just another alarm. It has advanced features like sleep tracking and monitoring. Before you go to bed select the go to sleep option and place your smartphone near you. Then sleep as droid will monitor your movement to record your sleeping pattern and then the app will graphically show you how much deep sleep you are getting. Based on that, it will calculate your sleep deficit i.e. how much ideal sleep hours you‘ve missed. Then you can compensate your sleep deficit with more sleep hours. The app also has different alarm modes.
Nothing helps me sleep better than the sound of rain. If you are also a “rain person” like me then this app wont disappoint. Whether its summer or winter, you will always have the sounds of rain as your lullaby. Rain Sounds plays sounds of rain on forest, car window, umbrella, tent and more.
