Intro: Are you stressed out? Then take a break with one of the best apps for calming down the mind and body! Being stressed usually means it can be hard to find peaceful moments and it can be almost impossible to be still and meditative. mindZense De-stress is a great tool for stress relief using VR as a distraction for a razing mind. You will find yourself teleported to a wonderful universe where a gentle narrative and relaxing music is designed to calm your busy mind.
Review: From the people that helped you sleep in MindZense Sleep comes a distressing tool they call “MindZense De-stress”. For those who have stressful jobs or those that have a stressful home life, this all is a break from reality and a chance to unwind and relax in a peaceful environment and some guided meditation and wellbeing advice. There is no Touch Controllers or gamepad to distract you here, you just need the Oculus Remote and a seat to relax in.
You start off in a room near the beach with a single fire burning away, this helps to settle your mind a little before you go outside into the busier beach setting. With the calm, soft voice guiding you into a clearer headspace and softer breathing.
Verdict: While only 20 minutes long it really does have the power to make you less stressful, provided you are willing to let it distress you. The scene setting looks pretty great once you get outside and the guided voice is soft and calming just as you need it to be. It’s cheap enough to simply give it a go, who knows, it might be the perfect escape from a busy stress-filled life. Even if it is only for 20 minutes.
