This article lists a variety of apps that help kids manage their anxiety. 

Both adults and kids can benefit from meditation. 

For kids as young as 2 years old, practicing healthy emotional habits like mindfulness can help them build their mental resilience. This allows them to handle whatever life throws at them when they’re older. There is a huge body of research that suggests that mindfulness meditation can be an effective tool for kids with anxiety, ADHD, depression and other mental health diagnoses. Our smartphones and tablets are great tools to deliver meditation content. This list includes Wellbeyond Meditation for Kids and other great apps.

Be sure to check them out!

Tech Tip

The tech tip today is from me! The app, Wellbeyond Meditation for Kids, is such a wonderful app for children and adults to use for meditation. My tip today is to think about how you can use your phone for health and wellness. In this digital world, we all need to slow down and meditation is so helpful. You can also use your smartphone to track your exercise and food intake, track your sleep cycles and listen to relaxing audiobooks or music.
