Self Care Apps Worthy of Your Screen Time!

Self Care Apps Worthy of Your Screen Time

Obviously the focus this month on VE has been self care and wouldn’t you know, there is an app for that. Self care can mean different things to different people, but it truly is a mindset and let’s be honest we could all use a little help from time to time. Since our heads are stuck in our phones all day long, I’ve found some self care apps that are worthy of the screen time. The list focuses on a variety of areas that are important to me!

 

Calm

Calm Self Care App

Calm is the #1 app for meditation and mindfulness. Y’all know meditation is something I’ve really been working on this year and it has been a major struggle for me! I think by now, most of us know the benefits of meditation, but don’t always know how to do it. Calm makes learning the art meditation simple with self-guided sessions focused on mindfulness, relaxation and sleep.

 

 

Grateful: A Gratitude Journal

Grateful Self Care App

I truly love this app and have used it for months now. They say where gratitude exist, anxiety cannot, so I have found it super helpful to start my mornings with a gratitude list. This app is a digital gratitude journal available to you all the time. It sends you and prompts to enter what you are grateful for throughout your day. You can quickly realize expressing gratitude in your life can be both easy and fun, as well as to remind you, during those down moments, of the many #blessings in your life. Available for Apple only

 

 

Happify

Happify Self Care App

I find that the winter months and cold, dreary weather can leave me feeling a little down sometimes. How you feel matters! Happify brings you effective tools to help you control your thoughts and feelings. Participate in weekly activities that allow you to see a meaningful shift toward life satisfaction and fight back against wherever or whomever negativity is coming from.

 

 

Aloe Bud

Aloe Bud Self Care App

If you are anything like me, the second my day starts, I’m moving and on really busy days, I can forget about the essentials. Aloe Bud is your self-care pocket companion. It sends gentle reminders for the aspects of your life that could benefit from a little nudging like remembering to drink water, taking a break from screen time and maintaining connections. It’s a simple way of checking in on essential activities of daily life.

 

 

 

Pacifica

Pacifica is more than a meditation app. Manage daily mental health with tools like mood and health tracking, mindfulness meditation, and cognitive behavioral therapy. You can see your progress over time which can help you make connections and recognize patterns. No judgment, just insight.

 

 

Think Dirty

Think Dirty Self Care App

Simmer down people. This one is not what you think. Ever wonder how good (or bad) your beauty, personal care and household products really are? Think Dirty takes all the guess work out of knowing what the information on your labels mean. Just scan the product barcode and Think Dirty will give you easy-to-understand info on the product, its ingredients, and shop cleaner options! This makes staying “clean” and healthy, even in cleaning products, so. much. easier!!

  1. Hi!

    Love this article on the Self Care Apps!! I have been doing many of the same the last few months after a bad break up and focusing on myself. I am excited to try out Happify and Aloe Bud, so thank you! I have found the other two are apps I have fell in love with this past year.. DrinkFit – helps you track your water intake daily. Secondly, I like waking up to Sleep Cycle. It is a sleep tracker with alarm setting that is not only a better more peaceful sound than most of our alarms – but you select a 20 minute window of when your alarm needs to go off and it picks the best moment to wake you within that period. Helps you wake up a little happier and more awake!

    I know these are a little different than usual self care, but they help me have a better and peaceful day 🙂

    1. Thanks Wren for the suggestions, I’ll have to check them out! I don’t sleep well in general so Sleep Cycle sounds like it would be a good fit!
