My life is always on the go, I mean always. Both my husband and I work full-time schedules while balancing caring for our 3 young children. We like to make time for everything without overdoing it. And I since I am a bit of a perfectionist at times I can forget that less is more + some days it’s just better to take it nice + slow. Sometimes I need to just focus on a more Zen Life. And these days I benefit from a mental workout more than anything else. So I carry a bit of sanity with me daily using a few good apps that remind me to always stop + smell the roses, even if I’ve only got a few minutes to spare.
Wake Up & Live
Headspace | I’ve been using this app since last year to take those mental timeouts needed to relax, restructure and regroup. And I love that I can use it anywhere and I do mean anywhere. Since I am a hands-free kind of woman when it comes to using my phone (I seriously do not hold my phone in the car, ever, my bluetooth headset is my like my right hand) I use it riding passenger side, on my lunch hour at work, or even while at my desk. A mental check out helps me mentally check back in with a more positive and calming outlook. Headspace has a free 10 day trial period + pricing options for those who’d like to become members. Who wouldn’t want that?
Mind Body Green | I use their Mind Body Green rss app and scroll through articles that appeal to me. I am also an email subscriber and love brushing up on new recipes, workouts, holistic healing and other ways to wind-down throughout the week.
Happify | I’ve been a fan of following Happify on social media but only recently learned that they have an app. I currently use the free side of their app (they have monthly and annual subscription rates available as well) and love the activities they over to help the “happy” take over just a bit more in my life. They also have infographics, free play and journey tracks that can help narrow down issues and bring more happy into life.
These are just three helpful tools that I use to Zen Life. What are some techie tools you use to keep balanced and focused?
