Reduce your time spent on TikTok and prioritize yourself instead.

We are constantly using apps such as Instagram and TikTok. As a result, we end up scrolling for hours or re-creating viral TikTok videos. Although these reels or videos are entertaining, sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves.

However, we can prioritize our well-being by using wellness apps instead. It’s the perfect way to use our phones while practicing mindfulness in one go. Here are some wellness apps you should download.
