Apps to support recovery

There are apps coming out all the time designed to encourage you to take recovery breaks or find ways to rest or recharge. Share ideas of ones that work for you – here are some that we’ve come across.

Take a break

Awareness” is a subtle app to encourage taking a break. It doesn’t nag you or force you to step away from your computer. Instead, with the sound of a Tibetan singing bowl, the app gently reminds you how long you’ve spent on your computer without taking a break.

Get moving

Yoga is well known for its focus on alignment, posture, mindfulness and strengthening flexibility, so why not take a quick stretch in the middle of your workday? Good for computer-fatigue, “Office Yoga MD” features more than 20 poses that can be done in any workspace, with quick and easy to follow instructions to alleviate stress, while building strength.

Recharge

You can think of the app, “Headspace”, as a gym membership for your mind. It is a meditation app for everyone, from beginners to those who regularly meditate. The app claims to teach meditation and mindfulness in just 10 minutes a day. You can personalise a variety of different collections to suit your mood and lifestyle, and make it a part of your day at any time.
