As a mother of three kids, my life is extremely busy these days. Now that school is back in session, I have one child in high school, one in middle school, and one in elementary school. Yes. Three kids in three different schools.
To help me relax and sleep better, I’ve tried a few relaxation apps on my iPhone. The one I’m reviewing today is called, “Stress Free,” by Andrew Johnson.
The app is easy to use. After installation, just open it up and check on the settings. You can adjust the length of the program according to your needs. Choose whether to include the audio instructions, short or long relaxation program, how many times to repeat the program, and how to end (sleep or wake up).
Johnson has a pleasant voice, and the background sounds are soothing. I listen with headphones on when I go to bed.
The program itself consists of Andrew Johnson talking you through a relaxation progression, followed by some suggestions on how to deal with stress. Honestly, I don’t remember exactly what Johnson says during the second half of the program, because I usually fall asleep before it’s finished.
“Stress Free” is available in the Apple Store for $2.99. I’m not convinced it’s making me “stress free,” but it is helping me fall asleep peacefully, and that’s worth $2.99 to me!
