I like this app for the good audios, articles, diary and mood log. I appreciate that the logs are customizable, though I'm still learning how to use the features. There are so many options it's overwhelming at times. Ex: there is a list of healthy activities you can check off. But the things they refer to are not all ready to find, such as listening to a particular audio or reading a certain article in app. This could be solved by adding links where each is mentioned.

I just downloaded it and did a few tests, looked at the audios and videos available and filled in some diary entries. I feel calmer within 20 mins use and it actually helped. It distracted me well and I'm hoping I can develop healthy habits if I can use this app daily. Sometimes I feel like some self help apps are cringy and feel forced. But this was really natural and felt theraputic and empowering to use. Hoping to make it part of my regular routine.

The new app update has a feature that has made it more difficult to use, for the audio, I don't see the seek line anymore which i used to easily get to the part of the Audio i stopped, now i have to keep pressing the skip button multiple times till i get to where i want us to be which makes it more difficult especially for long audios
