6. To recover well after exercise: Inscape
New Yorkers swear by this relaxation application that rises to the top of the download charts. And for good reason, Inscape succeeds in the feat of initiating gentle meditation through original programs that are not usually found. The breathwork, for example, still little known in France, offers breathing exercises to calm down, take stock, strengthen your mind or gain energy. There are also playlists of particular sounds whose vibrations balance the body, mind and emotions. With a special mention for the particularly well-made “Sleep Well” program, which prepares us for sleep and makes us sink in record time.
