Deadlines, equipment issues, sick coworkers … When everything’s a mess and you have so much to do, sometimes you don’t even know where to start. Fortunately, we’ve all been there, and this, too, shall pass.
But, to help you destress and, as a result, work more effectively, try these apps that can help you stay calm in any situation:
Digipill aims to change your perception by unlocking your subconscious with the help of psychoacoustics. By utilizing unique techniques within carefully crafted audio “pills” that last around half an hour, users can easily change their mindset to feel better not only during the session but afterward, as well.
The app aims to tackle real-life problems—such as fear of flying, study success, increasing comfort, sleeping deeply and giving up smoking. Digipill’s goal is to promote wellbeing, build habits and ease the process of bringing about change. The app is compatible with all devices, and offers a handful of free and premium “pills” for users.
If you’ve always wanted to learn how to meditate—but find it difficult to get into the right mindset for it—Headspace is here to help. This comprehensive meditation app offers both guided and unguided meditations; use them to alleviate headaches, depression, anxiety, or simply to enjoy a few minutes of rest and relaxation.
Headspace is available for Android and iOS devices. Plus, the first 10 sessions are free. Or, for an additional fee, access hundreds of hours of extra content. There are also targeted meditations available for tackling specific issues.

Calm is the leading app for meditation and sleep. As its name suggests, it was designed to make you calm and tranquil in any situation. Calm offers a wide range of meditations for users of all ages, providing a welcoming space to get away from it all—without having to physically go anywhere.
The app’s meditations come in all shapes and sizes, from two-minute recordings to up to an hour, depending on your mood and needs. Download the app on any device; it offers quite a few free meditations. However, access to its entire directory will set you back a couple of bucks.
