Every year, you tell yourself this is going to be the year you finally learn how to deal with your stress. Then life gets in the way and by February, you've forgotten all about your lofty resolution. Make 2018 the year you prioritize your mental health. If you need some help finding your chill side,Aurais one of the coolest apps for the job.
There are so many meditation apps out there these days that it can be hard to choose. Aura Health was created by meditation teachers and therapists and uses artificial intelligence to cater to your unique thought processes. All of the mindfulness meditation exercises you'll learn from Aura are just 3-10 minutes long, so you can jump in for a quick breather whether you're stressing about an assignment before work or just in need of a break from reality (read: Twitter.)
The app is also useful because it allows you to track your mood and become more aware of patterns so you can manage them better. Aura Premium has 5 out of 5 stars from more than 1,200 App Store ratings and was named Apple's #1 New App in 2017. Clearly, the people have spoken.
Unfortunately, just like therapy, a Lifetime Subscription to Aura Premium can be pricey, costing about $400. But self-care shouldn't come with a financial barrier. Head over to the Mashable Shop and pick up the same subscription for $59.99 — that's a whopping 84% off.
