Life can be extremely busy for all of us and finding time for ourselves can sometimes feel like an impossibility.
Despite this, it’s so important to create ‘me-time’ and the technology we so often hold in our hands can help an incredible amount to prompt you to take your focus away from work.
Simply downloading apps to your mobile phone can transform the way you see making time for yourself.
From making time to meditate to taking a quick break from work to play a game, have a look through our list of the four best apps here to regain some ‘me-time’.
Sometimes pure escapism is just what you need for a bit of ‘me-time’ and that’s where gaming comes in.
Whether you want to spin the roulette wheel in an online casino, play a few games of Candy Crush or even download some brain training game apps, you can take some time for yourself with gaming.
Taking a break from your work for a few minutes, getting some fresh air and playing a quick game can give you back some time for yourself and reset your mind.
Something that can reset your mind better than anything else is meditation, so investing in an app to help you do just that is a fabulous ides.
There are many apps out there to help you achieve that perfect balance of zen for your life. Two of the most popular meditation apps are Calm and Headspace.
Both of these apps encourage users to integrate meditation, mindfulness and increase their focus in day-to-day life. Download and you’ll invest in some all-important inner peace.
We all need apps on our phone to head to when we’re feeling a little too ‘Monday’ – and by that we mean, when we need a pick-me-up and a giggle.
Having an app on your phone guaranteed to put a smile on your face is invaluable, and there are loads to choose from. 9GAG is a meme-filled popular choice and provides daily humour to users and another great option is Buzzfeed.
The latter is packed with daily quizzes, jokes and YouTube videos.
The nature of being busy means you probably won’t have the time to come up with your own workout sessions and you won’t have lots of time on your hands to go to the gym. However, finding time to move your body is incredibly important for you and your overall health and wellbeing.
This is where fitness apps on your mobile phone can really help you out. Couch to 5k is great for people looking to get into running, and Fiit is fantastic for people who don’t quite know what they’re looking for – these are two of our favourites.
Couch to 5k takes you through stages to help you be able to run for 30 minutes without stopping, while Fiit is an app with different ‘studios’ – cardio, strength and rebalance. Depending on what you fancy doing that day, whether that be circuits or a yoga class, you have the options to choose from
