Back in the 90s, boys and girls had their dairies, where all intimate secrets were told, but no one can hear about them! Moodnotes is not far from this principle. It is a mood diary. It functions on positive psychology. It provides a great importance to self-awareness and drag attention to what surrounds the user and influence him. Thanks to the multiple suggestions provided by the application, the user can escape to unpleasant situations and come up with the right positive solution. If this application interest you, you can find it on iPhone for only 3.99$.
If you like mobile games, you would fall in love with this application for sure. Not only it increases the ability to remain strong and optimistic, but it motivates you when you face any obstacles. According to “Medical News Today”, a study by the University of Pennsylvania proved that after playing for 30 days with SuperBetter, people who tried the app got significant improvements in achieving their goals. In fact, the application has the potential to change peoples’ habits, when it comes to strengthening their relationships or achieving lifelong dreams. You can find it on iPhone if you want.
This is counseling 2.0. With a very convenient method, this application connects the user with a confidential approach to deal with his anxiety, stress and chronic illness. Based on several factors, the algorithm will put you in touch with a matching agent that is appropriate to your situation. A free consultation is provided by then. All agents are therapists who are specialized in anxiety, phobia, domestic violence, depression and much more.
To access the chat room, you need to become a member. Only then, you can discuss your issues safely and in private with your counselor. More than that, the pricing is 80% less than a normal consultation, a reason to be more tempted to try the application (available on iPhone and Android).
On a personal, I think all these apps are great to progress but cannot substitute an appropriate mental care with the lead of a psychiatrist. I think it’s really challenging to maintain a healthy thinking through a mobile application. It needs a lot of courage!
I believe it is a great exercise among others because, by nature, human beings are social, and anomalies such as depression and anxiety don’t get fixed overnight by any applications, not because they’re not efficient but simply because It is not enough to heal problems like that. Illnesses, as mentioned before, are the result of many issues that occurred among the years and need to be spoken.
So, to conclude, I encourage you to use those apps to lower the pressure you’re living in but do not substitute your visit to a specialist by these quick solutions. At the end of the day, what happened to you happened to many, true, but they didn’t necessarily react to it the same way you did.
Today it is important to raise awareness and to be here next to each other’s. This is strictly my opinion! what do you think? Share your voice! I am looking forward for your numerous responses.
