    Top 5 Apps to Help You Manage Stress


    You can assign actions to each task -- like phone calls or emails -- and the app syncs with your contact list. The tabbed interface is easy to navigate, and 2Do also offers voice recordings, alerts, Twitter integration, and a wide array of customizable features. It can be a bit confusing to use at first, but the 2Do list app for iPhone has received great reviews. 

    Smart Alarm:

    This ergonomic algorithm has been designed to optimize your sleep and help you achieve full rest. The technology tracks your sleep cycles and chooses the optimum time to wake you gently, or gives you the option to set your own alarm. This app will also allow you to choose from more than 100 soothing tracks to help you doze off and tracks to help you wake in the morning. While you sleep, this app can even record sounds in your bedroom so you can finally figure out who snores and what wakes you up at night! 

    Simply Being:

    Meditate easily with this elegantly simple app. Enjoy the deep relaxation, stress relief and benefits of meditation without prior experience. The Meditation Oasis® Simply Being app has been developed by Richard and Mary Maddux, creators of the popular Meditation Oasis® podcast. It allows you to choose from 4 meditation times and gives you the option to listen with or without music or nature sounds. 



    With the TheSleepApp, you can improve your internal "circadian" clock with this light therapy to regulate your natural sleep rhythms. It works in the background while you surf the web for a few minutes in the morning and again just before your desired bedtime. When it comes to sleep, timing is EVERYTHING! Just 2-5 minutes of any exposure to electronic devices that emit light in the blue range (e.g. cell phones, computers, TVs) have 75% of the response rate of continuous bright light in lowering melatonin levels, which makes it hard to fall asleep at night and remain asleep.
