TECH BYTE: gaming apps to help you relax
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Normally playing games can turn you on and motivate you, but there are some that do the exact opposite.
It sounds like an oxymoron, but there are some relaxing games out there.
They are exactly what many of us need, as we go through a pandemic that seems to never end.
My Oasis: Anxiety Relief game is supposed to help calm your mind and relieve stress.
The game offers a zen environment and a calming atmosphere. Relaxing sounds even help you relax.
It is usually quite peaceful to spend time in an aquarium or watch pretty fish swimming in an aquarium.
But when that’s not possible, having one on your phone is the best thing to do.
The Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium app is a game that, of course, takes place in the ocean.
You create your own fish and build coral to help you relax. Plus, it’s pretty to watch!
The KAMI 2 app offers over 100 puzzles, and you can even create your own.
They are calming, yet addicting. Colorful origami is fun to watch while you play.
New puzzles are uploaded daily.
If you don’t really want to play a game, the Calm app is also great for chilling out.
This is great for helping you fall asleep.
The app offers guided meditations, sleep stories, breathing programs, stretching exercises, and relaxing music.
There are free features on the Calm app, but a subscription service will cost you money.
It might be worth spending it, if you want to fall asleep with Matthew McConaughey or Leona Lewis reading you a story.
Do you still feel relaxed or sleepy?
These apps are a great way to take a break from a stressful situation or to relax after a long day at work.
There are many more out there. Just search for them in your phone’s app store.
