It is really important for our mental health and wellbeing to try and remain as stress-free as possible. Some days this may feel harder than others, so we have been doing our research and put together a list of the top free mobile apps that are proven to improve your wellbeing and stress levels. 

1 – Headspace

Headspace is predominantly a meditation app. There is both a free version and a paid version, with the paid giving you access to much more content.

The app includes multiple 7-day programmes that you can follow that are designed to help you de-stress and boost your happiness. From guided meditations to the library of calming background music, this app is great for helping you relax in any environment.

3 – Momento 

Available on IOS

A proven way of destressing at the end of a long day is to keep a diary or journal to express all of your thoughts and feelings. Memento is a great app that allows you to do this in a way that is much more digital. It’s used to record a snapshot of your day including images, videos and text. You can also synchronise your social media accounts so all of your posts and activity is in one place for you to look back on in the future. 

4 – Polygon

Available on IOS and Android

This is a firm favourite of mine. Polygon is an app dedicated to colour-by-number artwork. It is completely free and has an extensive library of images for you to choose from. It allows you to use the creative part of your brain without having to think too hard about colour choice and technique. Simply tap the screen and the section fills with colour for you.
