Stress and anxiety are an undeniable phenomena that prove to be affecting more and more people every day. Especially young people. The incentives (economic and social) inherent in our school system don’t help.
Many students have found themselves in a proverbial pressure cooker of sorts when it comes to high school (or even earlier) and the college admissions process. It saddens me, but it’s the reality of the situation.
Our job at Dunce is to embrace it and help our students face and transcend it.
So, below we included a few anxiety-busting mindfulness/meditation apps (yes, you can use the power of your iPhone for good) that you can use (for free/really cheap) to clear your mind and settle into your natural state of inner calm.
No, these have nothing to do with religion or beliefs. They just help you take some time out of your day to settle the waters of your mind – something that pays off in spades, I guarantee it.
