Top 5 mindfulness apps for digital nomads

When you work for yourself and you’re always on the go, it can be hard to carve out some quality time for yourself. We take a look at the top mindfulness apps for digital nomads…

Freelancers are often so busy their lives can feel like a whirlwind. But, sometimes you need a little help to take five minutes to yourself, and to remind yourself of how far you’ve come.

Here are the top mindfulness apps for those who are always on the go…

With three-minute mini meditations, this app offers you bitesize mindfulness that’s totally manageable, even if you have a busy lifestyle. You can also keep a gratitude journal – perfect for the nomad who feels a little exhausted by the workload and needs a reminder of the great things they’re doing!

This free app is perfect for those five-minute breathers during the working day. Tracking you throughout the day with guidance, tips and tools, this app reminds you to take that little break every so often. When you’re working for several clients and managing your own workload, sometimes you need a little nudge to take a break!

Probably one of the most popular meditation apps on the market, Headspace offers you spoken word meditations that only take up 10 minutes of your time, helping you to maintain alertness, centre your thoughts and recharge your brain. You can also use the SOS emergency meditations for when you’re really frazzled.

The Calm app offers you daily calming sessions, with the soothing sounds of pouring rain, ocean waves, crackling fires or subtle nature to help you relax. There are guided videos for mindfulness, and also Sleep Stories, which are designed to help you drift off if you’re particularly stressed.

Stop, Breathe & Think
This app is a very effective mindfulness app. Rather than just trying to get you to relax, it asks you to check in with your feelings. Are you stressed? Physically tired? Well, then the app will help you monitor your emotions and physical wellbeing in order to ground yourself and clear your head.
