Calming apps

Apps can play a genuine part in keeping people well, energised and stress free. I have noticed when I have got students to access paint apps for a particular reason there are always about two who sit mesmerised trailing their fingers over their iPad or swirling the colours. I let them do it for 5 minutes, have always been impressed with the level of creativity and then tried to engage them in what we are actually doing. Now that I have listened to the video by the UX designer who developed Pause, I can see why these students have just lost themselves in the finger movements of a paint programme. It is calming, it relaxes them and it clears their mind.  Now I think about it, they were students who seemed to be anxious. Pause is a paid app but it is an app created by a top level designer who applied his design skills and knowledge and his cultural background to create something which would help him and others. Makeuseof has 10 other apps which you can use to decompress, destress, unclutter your mind. Using technology can be intense and you need ways and means of giving yourself and your brain a break and a refresh. I go on Instagram and look at all the lovely pictures. Others play a quick game but using an app designed to relax you and help you regenerate is a good way to go. The aquarium one is a paid app too but you can get free fish apps like Pocket Pond or Pocket Aquarium . There are lots of free apps  for iOS and Android to help you clear your head and feel less intense about everything which is going on. Notice which ones make a difference for you.
