Mental Health Days: Android Apps for Making the Most of Your Free Time


There’s a lot of stress-inducing things out there nowadays: television and internet news, career challenges and family concerns all have a way of making you feel stressed out and maybe even overwhelmed. Sometimes, it’s so much that you may feel like you need a day all to yourself to relax and feel better.

Fortunately, with today’s mobile technology, you can find fun and relaxing ways to reduce your stress. There are tons of apps designed to help you unwind and focus on positive things rather than any of the negative aspects of your life. Here are a few great apps you should look into next time you have some time to spare and feel like relaxing.


Sometimes when you want to relax, you want to play a game that is fun but doesn’t take too much concentration. This game is an easy way to have fun in your free time without having to think too hard.

The objective of the game is to get power to the lighthouse so that it can light up. The challenge comes from navigating the power through and around obstacles. You have several tools at your disposal, including mirrors and portals. The graphics are simple but pleasing and you can spend a lot of time figuring out some of the more advanced puzzles, but the game isn’t too demanding and can provide you with the fun downtime that you are looking for.

Coloring Book for Me & Mandala

A great childhood memory for many people are the days where you’d drag your colored pencils or crayons out of the box and sit down to color for hours. This pastime has now become a popular way for adults to have fun as well, and this Android coloring book app is a great way to pass the time.

The app offers many different designs to color, from abstract and geometric patterns to people, butterflies, and other wildlife from around the world. You can choose from more than 25 color palettes that feature eight colors in each, so you can always find just the right color you are looking for. Hen you are finished, you can share your creations on social media and see all of your friend’s praises at your artistic skills.

Relaxing Sounds

What if you don’t really feel like doing anything in your spare time, but still want to relax? This sound app will help you tune out the world, giving you all the time you want to yourself.

You can choose from a variety of sounds to listen to, from natural sounds like rain, thunderstorms and the ocean to ambient sounds like a crackling campfire. You can set a timer so you can fall asleep to the sounds or just get away from the world for 10 minutes or so for a quick, relaxing break.

Today’s world can leave you feeling stressed, so why not take a few minutes for yourself and try these apps?
