The Webby Awards is the internet's biggest night

Here are 3 free Webby-winning Alexa skills to take for a spin:

#1. Try Headspace's meditation skill to unlock your inner om

If you’re new to meditation or aren’t sure how to get started, Headspace can help. Today's meditation walked me through a head-to-toe relaxation exercise that helped locate areas in my body that were holding tension. You can also try a 10-minute sleep exercise to send you off to bed. To enable this skill, tap/click here > tap/click the "Enable" button. Then, just say “Alexa, open Headspace” to get started.

Pro Tip: To unlock more meditations, create a Headspace account (or connect an existing account by following Alexa's prompts).

#2. The Mr. Robot skill will immerse you in a mind-bending (and fun!) game

Even if you’re not a Mr. Robot superfan, this skill is awesome. It's an interactive story game where you’re a participant in a journey inspired by the storylines of the second and third seasons of the show. You'll be dropped right in the middle of a thrilling attempt to steal data to fight back against Evil Corp, working alongside vigilante hacker Elliot and helping him make his next move. To enable the skill, tap/click here > tap/click the "Enable" button. Then just say, “Alexa, start the Daily Five Nine” to begin.

#3. Harvard Business Review's flash briefing can help you become a better manager at work (and maybe at home too)

This skill offers a quick way to get bite-sized daily management advice tips from Harvard Business Review’s massive library. Today’s tip walked listeners through how to decide if team training is the right way to solve a problem. To add it to your Alexa flash briefing, just tap/click here > tap/click the "Enable" button. Next time you say “Alexa, what’s my Flash Briefing?” you'll hear the day's management tip.

Having fun is one of the best use cases for Alexa
