It’s important to prepare both mind and body for tasks ahead. Normally, you would need to enroll in specialized courses to be better equipped in dealing with stress and what it does after work.
The good news is there are apps that are quite accessible and does not need a learner to attend a class to learn how to relax when needed the most. Here is our list:

This platform advocates the notion of being able to meditate on the go – even in hard, tough situations. MindFi sets up the best times to de-stress based on your body clock and also keep track of your progress each time.
PAUSE uses methods taken from old Tai Chi principles. This means instead of plainly listening to voices and other sounds for meditation, PAUSE makes use of using onscreen fingertip movements to find your body’s “rest and digest response”. This helps in regaining focus and releasing stress.

This app is currently offered to MAC and/or iOS users. This is a utility app designed for those who use headphones a lot. Silenz monitors the sounds in your surroundings and detects what the user may need to hear (i.e. human speech).
This reacts by pausing or adjusting the volume of media players to ensure that its user is made aware of what’s going on, or there’s someone who needs to be listened to. This app can also mix surrounding sounds with your music.
8. Meditation Studio

SelfMonk takes pride in being a voice app that is designed with Airpods users in mind.
This program works with Siri and Apple Watch as a voice command that gets the user meditating immediately. Its ease of use (mainly by asking Siri for “SelfMonk”) makes sure that even those who are used to visual interfaces for their meditation apps will get the hang of the product in almost no time spent.
Today’s setting makes sleep something hard to do, or even forget about because of so many things to do at once.
With Bedtime, not only will the user be taught the right way and the right time to go to bed, it will also make going to sleep something to look forward to. It also makes sure you stay in bed once your head rests on a pillow. Available for iOS users only.
