The beauty of living in a technologically advanced society is that you can develop a co-dependent relationship with your smartphone. I mean, sure, ‘doomscrolling’ is not good for you but you know what would be great? If we can use our phones to develop a better, more productive lifestyle… oh wait! You can!
If you’ve been having trouble focusing lately or need constant reminders to finish a task, or maybe you need help in decompressing, then lucky for you, there’s an app for that!
Below are some of the top wellness app we think you should download!
The Exhale app is an “emotional well-being app for BIWOC by BIWOC.” Founded by Katara McCarty, Exhale was created with the idea that the issues and hardships that the Black and Brown communities face are taken into consideration in regards to their mental health. McCarty felt that the emotional well-being apps she used before were not catering to her as a black woman especially in light of the recent Black Lives Matter movement last year.
The Exhale App has five well-being practices such as guided meditation, guided visualizations, guided breathwork, coaching talks, and daily affirmations.
Exhale App is available for download on iOS and Android for free.
