• Please find some mindfulness apps and youtube videos.  The apps below are free. I know that many of us want to stay informed with up to date information and may have the tv on to get that information.  However, it may be helpful to have some peaceful and relaxing music in the background, if you can do so, at any time of the day or night. Simply type in “relaxing spa music” into the search bar when you go to youtube and there are many to choose from.
