Life often becomes stressful for an educator as you juggle between work and home. With the endless changes coming in the education world, stress levels are increasing every day. Managing stress is important for educators, as they are role models for their students as well as their family. We, at ScooNews, care for all our hard-working educators and have listed the top 10 apps you can use to reduce stress:
Working out and staying active is probably the best way to reduce stress. Sworkit is one of the most popular fitness apps out there and includes videos of many exercises to help you stay fit. There is a free version, Sworkit Lite, although you can pay to upgrade to a version with more features.
A smartphone app with instructions and exercises in diaphragmatic breathing, this is a documented stress-management skill. The app includes detailed information on the effects of stress on the body, motivating the user to work on their stress levels.
3. Personal Zen:
It consists of a series of games based on clinical findings of methods for reducing anxiety levels. It was developed with a professor of psychology and neurosciences.

7. Squeeze and Shake:
All work and no play make a dull mind. Why internalise your anger and stress, when you can vent them harmlessly on a virtual rubber duck!
8. My Mood Tracker:
Power comes to those who are more aware of what they are feeling. This app helps you to figure out links between life events and cycles and your moods, which in turn will help you manage (and work around) your moods.
