Mind­ful­ness, mo­ti­va­tion and med­i­ta­tion be­came eas­ier to man­age from the com­fort of your own phone in 2018, mak­ing self-care the ‘app trend of the year’. Apps like Calm and 10% Hap­pier: Med­i­ta­tion ed­u­cated users in how to use sim­ple breath­ing and lis­ten­ing tech­niques to keep a clear mind and calm con­science, while Fab­u­lous – Mo­ti­vate Me al­lowed users to set small, re­al­is­tic per­sonal goals and build new habits with easy steps.

Calm’s unique sleep sto­ries seem to have helped it to score highly – and any­body who hasn’t ex­pe­ri­enced one yet should cer­tainly take on the chal­lenge of stay­ing awake while lis­ten­ing to the tran­quil sounds of Stephen Fry or Jerome Flynn read­ing them a bed­time story. Seek­ing to re­duce the pro­lif­er­a­tion of in­som­nia among mo­bile users, Calm has be­come a more pop­u­lar mind­ful­ness op­tion in 2018 than even Headspace.
