We all have stressful days. Whether it’s a busy schedule at the office, a difficult client or external factors causing the cortisol to spike in your system, some days just seem to get on top of us. There are many tried and tested methods for managing stress and tension in our lives, some even as old as time itself, such as playing games, listening to music and meditating. But, fast-forward to 2018, and every day we all have devices with unlimited potential sat in the palm of our hands. You might even be reading this on your smartphone right now. If not, it’s probably within arms-reach. So, why not use our devices to collaborate those ancient de-stressors with new-age technology? Here are three apps to help you regain calm, unwind and get through a stressful day.

Headspace is the perfect app for those looking to incorporate a little more mindfulness into their day. Meditation has been used by different cultures for centuries as a way of clearing the mind and combatting stress. The app was created by Andy Puddicombe, who travelled to the Himalayas to study meditation in his mid-twenties before becoming ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist monk a decade later in India. Through the app, Andy voices focussed guided meditations in time frames ranging from fully-fledged twenty minute routines to bite-size SOS exercises in case of sudden meltdowns. Headspace can be used anywhere and at any time, making it a handy tool to have to help tackle those stressful days.

Nothing helps take the mind away from stressful situations quite like getting lost in a game. Playing games help give the mind a rest from the stressors of day-to-day life, whilst letting it explore new worlds. However, it’s not always the easiest to take your new console onto the tube, and it certainly isn’t always convenient trying to arrange a game of scrabble with your co-workers. Fortunately for us, today we are able to access and enjoy vast amounts of games through our very own smartphone devices. Take, for example, the online casino slots inspired by famous films available through the SuperCasino App. Players can become part of The Matrix through their lunch-hour, fly high as a Top Gun pilot on their morning commute or battle as a Gladiator in the heat of Ancient Rome, all without having to leave the office. Gaming on mobile devices has become so easy and convenient that it can be enjoyed anywhere and at any time. So, if you’re feeling in need of a fun little escape to Hollywood, this could be the app for you.
