Exercise keeps our bodies strong as our minds power our resilience day after day. After working and creating, taking care of partners, kids, pets, and adventuring around the metaverse, energy levels are at their peak or all worn out.
Our brains and bodies are an interconnected battery system that needs a reboot or a recharge! Meditation apps are a great way to send your body and brain into relaxation mode and also to reenergize you with colorful environments and calming music.
Here are 5 VR Meditation Apps for Full Body Relaxation that were released this year.
