Aumio - Making Mental Health a Priority from Childhood On

Children experience so much every day that sometimes it's difficult for them to unwind in the evening and process everything. Now, there's something fantastic that can help you and your children with this – the Aumio App.

Aumio believes that we should put a priority on mental health from a very young age, and we completely agree. With Aumio stories, relaxation exercises, and meditations, children can strengthen their awareness of their mental and physical well-being. This will not only help them in the here and now, but will also prepare them for the future. As we know, sustainable well-being requires proper care.

Since we have been using the app ourselves for a while and love it, we have a code from Aumio for you that will save give 20% off an annual subscription.
