3 – Sleep Easy With Calm
Cal is another app that is great for guided meditation but the feature we want to mention is their bedtime stories! Perfect for helping you unwind after a stressful day of work. They can also be used to help calm you or distract your mind before a big meeting or presentation. Calm helps to keep you calmed and relaxed anytime and anywhere.

5 – Master The Art Of Colouring In
A colouring book on the go is a great way to relax. If colouring was a favourite when you were a kid then why not reconnect with your inner child and give it a go with this innovative virtual twist. It is also the perfect app to have if you are a busy parent and need to keep your kids entertained whilst on the go (you can thank us later).
6 – Take A Break With Do Not Disturb
A simple one that may seem obvious but when life is all go we do forget that we have the power to take a break and pause. More effective than simply silencing your phone as you don’t see your phone lighting up from the corner of your eye.
This is also a great way to switch off but still be available in an emergency. If you add a contact to your favourites then you can exclude any urgent calls or messages from being silenced. So if you want to silence the work calls but still want to know if your partner or kids have called urgently, then you can!
This is also a great feature to help you focus on productivity. If you want more tips and apps to aid concentration, check out our blog post on our favourite focus apps for work.
