On different occasions, the coronavirus pandemic has left many of us on the verge of tears and with an empty feeling in our chests.
Whether it is because of financial hardships, the loss of a close family member, a complicated long-distance relationship, or disheartening news, COVID-19 has made it difficult for us to focus on our own personal growth.
How can we keep our emotional balance with such an uncertain future ahead? It is a challenging task to say the least, but not an impossible one. We just need some spiritual guidance and, luckily, there are a few apps that can help with that!
