Thankfully, there are tons of apps, resources, and platforms that make flexing your emotional wellness muscle 💪 easier than ever - many of which you can access right on your phone! 📱
And we’ve gathered 6️⃣ of our favorite must-have emotional wellness resources for you below. 💕
Talking to a therapist has never been easier. 🙂 Seriously, you can do it from your couch, in your PJ’s, sipping the latest elixir we shipped you in last month’s box. BetterHelp is an online therapy site where you can sort through licensed therapists profiles to find someone who is the best fit for you, and get chatting right away! Plus, it’s way more affordable than traditional in person therapy.

Meditation has become pretty buzz-worthy, but as a beginner it can be overwhelming to sort through everything that comes up when you google “how to meditate.” Just download the Calm app instead! They have a library full of guided meditations you can choose to listen to to get you started on your journey to inner stillness!
Pro-tip: be sure to check out the sleep stories so you can let Matthew McConaughey's voice lull you into a calm, peaceful slumber. 😴 Alright, alright, alright!

It’s like MyFitnessPal, but for your emotions! 😅
