Best 5 Apps for Stroke Survivors to recover faster

Did you find this article while searching for advice for stroke survivors to make the most out of their recovery? I'll share some information that I hope will be helpful.

As you know, it is important to maintain healthy habits to prevent a future stroke. Even though many people know the importance of stroke management, they may feel they don’t know how to undertake the process. So today, I'm going to introduce 5 apps that can help you manage your stroke continuously.

1. Calm - Meditation App

After a stroke, you may experience sudden emotional changes or sleep poorly. Many experts say that we should try to accept and control the emotional changes, and make adjustments to our lifestyle and environment to achieve better sleep. One of the best ways to control emotional change is to meditate. Meditation allows you to control anxiety and refocus your energy.

Calm is a top-performing app for Sleep, Meditation and Relaxation. This app has over 50 million downloads and over 700,000 5-star reviews. It was also honored to be an Apple BEST OF 2018 award winner, Apple's App of the Year 2017, Google Play Editor's Choice 2018, and was named by the Center for Humane Technology as "the world's happiest app".
