Living with diabetes is hard. It’s easy to get discouraged, frustrated and burned out. We’ve got three ways you can reduce stress in your life right from your phone or tablet!
Tech is a part of our everyday lives, and doing things remotely is the new norm. Apps like Headspace and Calm can help you achieve deeper relaxation, better sleep and more mindful meditation all from the comfort of your own home. Both are available to try for free in the Google Play or App Store.
