Sure, you want to get a bit more spiritual, but you’re also a die-hard millennial who uses apps for everything from music and Instagram to workouts and mindfulness. Luckily there are a wealth of apps that can help you live your best damn spiritual life, from those that teach you how to better your journaling and meditation practice, to kindness and astrology aids.
We know full well what a source of stress our phones and constantly-connected lifestyle can be, but the life-hub that is the iPhone can also be used to help you slow down and access your spiritual side.
Here are 6 apps you need in your life in order to become the most spiritual version of you:

Straight from the spiritual dame that is Gabby Bernstein, the Spirit Junkie app keeps the good vibes flowin’ throughout your day with inspiring affirmations.
