    • iPhone iOS10 use Night Shift Mode
  • Insight Timer free meditation app - one of the top meditation apps on Google Play and the App Store.
  • Headspace free meditation app.   Recommended by law students:
    • "I highly recommend Headspace. As law students, our minds often race. Headspace slows the mind through comfortable, accessible guided meditation sessions. However, the positive long-term effects of meditation are not immediate. They result from regular practice. Headspace is designed to help you easily integrate meditation into your daily routine - like brushing your teeth or having a shower. Also, the soothing guidance provides direction during the difficult, often distracted initial stages of meditation. Headspace is a sure way to a happier, healthier mind!"
