Honestly, I think we could all do with a bit of Wild Journey in our lives. Wild Journey is my favorite mindfulness app for iPhone and iPad.

When I reach the end of the day and feel the need to relax and unwind, Wild Journey is the app I turn to. I find it helps me switch off and empty my mind like no other relaxation app. Let me explain why, starting with the basics.

There’s plenty of ways you can take care of your health in 2021. You could start a steady workout regimen with Apple Fitness+. You could begin being more mindful about nutrition and what you consume. Or you might set aside time in your week to meditate and get away from your iPhone.

While some apps will help you accomplish these things individually, there isn’t a more comprehensive wellness app on the market than Verv Premium Home Workout Planner.

In today’s fast-paced, connected world, the demands on our time seem endless. We spend much of our day in a state of constant hyperactivity. Apple Watch and iPhone add to the pressure, with their endless notifications telling us what we should be doing, who we should be speaking to and where we should be going.

Fortunately, Apple also offers an oasis of calm that can help us slow down this frenetic pace. The Apple Watch Breathe app draws on the ancient wisdom of Buddhist monks and yogis who practice a technique called “resonant breathing.”

Luckily, you don’t need to be a master of meditation to use the Breathe app that comes built into your Apple Watch. With clever visuals and smart features, it will guide you through this time-honored method for relaxing your body and clearing your mind. It’s a surprisingly subtle and relaxing experience that you might really enjoy.

In this quick guide, we’ll take a look at the origins of the Breathe app, how it works, what the benefits of resonant breathing are, and how to take advantage of this calming tech. So take a deep breath and let’s get started.
