It is a new year and with it comes some old and new challenges that can add to a day’s stress levels. Just reach for your Android phone and choose among this short list of “stress relief” apps. They are all free and were rated at least four stars.

Need a new job?

Your job may be the biggest source of stress. In this case, you need to find another and Indeed Jobs is just the app you need. From search to apply, Job Search helps you through the entire process of finding a new job. Join over 100 million jobseekers each month for access to over 15 million jobs in over 50 countries and 28 languages. With Indeed Jobs, you can find openings in cities near you using your device’s GPS. You can create and upload your CV to a network of over 35 million CVs. Indeed shows you how many employers viewed your CV and how a company is rated by its employees. You can even see photos of what it’s like to work at a company before you apply.

Squash them

If you‘re happy with your job but what like to squash a few of your colleagues, get Ant Smasher. Apart from several ants and a dangerous bee, you can choose to smash faces of people you don’t like. Just be careful when you take it to social media – your boss may find himself or herself smashed in full view of your (and their) friends.

Slice them

You can also take out your frustrations on fruit. Grow from a novice fruit bruiser to an all-out slicing machine with Fruit Ninja. The latest characters to join the game are from the amazing world of Fruitasia. The game description uses a very fruity lingo – “use power-ups and special bananas to maximum effect, and go crazy on the multi-slice Pomegranate”.

Hit them

Many find golf a great escape from stress. However, what do you do if you cannot get to a golf course before you crack? Look no further than Golf Star- a real-time, multi-player mobile golf game. Realistic graphics, golfing techniques mastered by the pros, and a simulation powered by real physics-based gameplay enable you to play with golfers from all over the world.

Less violence

Stress is a sign of the presence of negative thoughts that torment our minds. For less violent ways to relieve your stress, turn to Meditation Music. Meditation is a process of self-healing and Meditation Music uses a selection of meditation music to help you find inner peace and calmness. You can make up music using a choice of 12 meditation sounds.

Here’s to a less stressful 2016!
