I have recently downloaded some new apps on my phone that I thought would be good for my anxiety and wanted to share with everyone what they are and why I like them.
The Shine app- I won’t go into too much detail on this one because I actually wrote a blog post about it and that will be coming out soon. If you like to check in with yourself and to create a routine around that I would definitely check it out.
“I am” app- This has been my favorite one lately! The I am app sends you positive affirmations throughout the day on your phone. For someone who constantly thinks about the negative I like having alerts on my phone that I can repeat to myself. You can also set the times you want to have messages delivered (I have mine set from 7a.m. to 8pm) As I am writing this I just got one sent to my phone that says “I am a beautiful person.” There is a paid version but I have the free version right now and it has been working out pretty well for me.
Prompted Journal App- I love love love to journal but often don’t have the time to actually pull out my notebook and write. This app gives you a prompt a day to complete. It can be about a variety of topics. Today’s prompt said “My job makes me feel…” I like being able to lay in bed before I go to sleep and complete this. It has become part of my nightime routine. The app gives you a trial period and then it is 99 cents a month afterwards. Very Affordable!
Q365 App- This is another type of prompted journal app. Everyday you answer a new prompt. I like this one because you can see the prompts ahead of time and choose which ones to answer. Sometimes I don’t resonate with certain prompts so I will skip those over. Today’s prompt of the day is “What made you happy today?” This app also gives you a trial and it is $6.99 for an ENTIRE YEAR after that! This app has also been part of my nighttime journal routine.
Let me know what apps you are loving right now!
Thanks for reading!
