You have to pay for a lot of yoga apps (though many are currently doing free trials), but 5 Minute Yoga is entirely free.

5. Sleep Cycle
Even if you don’t consciously feel stressed or anxious, these emotions can affect you in a lot of ways. Mostly though, they mess up your sleep.

One of the best wellbeing apps out there, it tracks your sleep cycle throughout the night (based on sound and movement analysis), then it wakes you up when you’re in your lightest phase of sleep. As such, you’ll feel much less groggy and much more refreshed.
