Feeling overwhelmed or stressed out?
These two new apps aim to promote social and emotional well-being, and help you cope with anxiety through the practice of mindfulness.
Mindfulness is all about encouraging awareness of oneself in the present moment.
Did you know that regularly practicing mindfulness has been shown to change parts of the brain that affect memory, empathy and stress?
Learn how to relax through techniques such as body scans and guided meditations, and develop active strategies to help you face challenging situations and take charge of your life.
Both apps are available to download for free on Google Play and the Apple App Store.
MindShift is the work of a joint collaboration between AnxietyBC and BC Children’s Hospital, funded by the RBC Children’s Mental Health Project. Breathr is also developed by BC Children’s Hospital (Health Literacy team), along with a number of different experts and youth.
