Published date: March 16, 2020

Finding the silver lining in the time of a crisis is difficult. The Coronavirus Pandemic has increased our anxiety and stress. Left unchecked, persistent anxiety invades every area of our physical, emotional, and behavioral wellbeing. But it can also create reflective moments where we focus on what really matters. During the upcoming days, the Trojan Wellness Network challenges you to take care of not only your physical, but psychological well-being. Guided meditation is one strategy for improving your emotional well-being. 

Below are a couple of apps that will introduce or reacquaint you with guided meditation, as a relaxation strategy.
