Best Apps to Calm Your Mind from TutuApp

Are you feeling stressed? You might find on TutuApp a mindfulness app that is helpful in reducing stress levels. Anyone who has suffered from depression more than three times is advised to try mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. It’s as effective as anti-depressants, according to research. Even if you don’t have depression, research shows that mindfulness can reduce stress, increase resilience, develop happiness, improve focus, and lower anxiety levels. Thus, an app could be the perfect tool to help you establish a relaxing routine. Below are the top relaxing apps for both beginners and experienced meditators.

You can find guided meditations, a section on mindfulness for beginners, and meditations on the daily commute, mindful eating, and other topics.
