    Another app you might consider for lowering and monitoring stress levels is LifeTopix. It’s a personal productivity app; however, we’ve included features that allow you to log any of your activities (such as fitness — yoga, running etc.; meditation; diet; medications) and correlate these activities with your stress levels and feelings. You can discover trends by viewing results in a graphical format over time. It also allows you to keep track of everything you’re doing in your life, which is proven to help you sleep at night.
