Many people do not allow themselves to truly unplug from their jobs during their breaks from work. Some people often skip lunch, or take their meal at their desk to minimize downtime. However, being able to destress is very important aspect of productivity. Today, there are mobile apps that make guided meditation easy, even at the workplace. Headspace is a trusted app that is very popular. However, it requires a subscription after the trial period expires. Another meditation app, Calm, was one of the highest rated on iTunes for 2017. Some apps, like Smiling Mind even have meditations catered to children. 10% Happier and Inscape are helpful as well.
