Every week we show you some apps, sites, and services that do more than monitor your favorite YouTube cat videos -- they give you high-tech solutions for real life problems. We call it the "Tech Affect."

This week's recommendations -- as featured on the Wednesday, Nov. 20 episode of TakePart Live -- were handpicked by our special guest expert, tech director at UC Irvine's Digital Media Learning Research Hub Tara Tiger Brown.

  • Pzizz – app that helps fix your sleeping-related issues and boosts your daily energy.

  • – trains users to meditate in 2 to 20 minute sessions.

  • Headspace provides guided meditation sessions for people typically on-the-go.
