Smart-phone apps aim to help users relax

August 12, 2011

Insomnia and anxiety are common problems, but instead of turning to medication, you might want to pick up your smart phone.

You can download apps to help you relax.

No matter what kind of smart phone you have, you'll find names such as "Simply Being," "Mindfulness Meditation," and "Prana-Yama Universal Breathing." They use narration and music to guide the user through meditation and relaxation.

One word of caution: The apps range in price from free to expensive, so make sure the cost doesn't lead to more stress.
