[beta][Demo Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZTMdPFZLKo ] Track and share emotional events with Track A Trigger. Research shows simple logging of mood states is effective at lifting depression, reducing angry outbursts, and improving relational behavior and emotional management. Track A Trigger introduces users to patterns of mental activity ("protectors": wishing, self-aggression, aggression, dread, and go-with-the-flow) that are employed by the mind to manage emotional pain that accompanies reminders of neglect, abuse, abandonment, or rejection. Users identify somatic information such as the location of emotional energy in the body as well as thoughts and feelings. Tracking an event initiates a series of "check-ins" where the user is requested to update their state information over time. Users may also resource using provided or uploaded guided visualizations and 'process' unfinished child consciousness attachment wounds using breath and mindfulness coaching. Sharing emotional states through email, text messages, twitter and Facebook support relational resourcing. Analysis of tracked states reveals habits for targeting in therapy and also provides evidence of progress in emotional growth.
Track A Trigger is a practice-proven method for increasing mindfulness of emotion states, increasing self-evaluation habits, increasing the possibility of escaping from habitual responses, and to actually reduce reactivity to triggers and shorten the duration of the triggered state. Track A Trigger improves lives by increasing emotional regulation.
Run Track A Trigger when you experience your own reactivity when perceiving a "trigger." You may notice body based (somatic) reactions or strong emotions or intense thoughts.
Track A Trigger records "events." The event is added to the record (a database) when you NAME the event. You can either enter a new name or use an existing name. The date and time are recorded with the event at the moment the event name is entered or selected.
Event data can then be added by swiping through the BODY, PROTECTORS, and EMOTIONS pages. The event record is updated when modified using slide bars or the Body panel. There is no "record" button.
After entering data, you may SHARE the event using applications that are installed on your phone, such as Text Messaging, Email, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter. You can preview your message in the SHARE page, and then send by pressing the SHARE button. Be aware of possible consequences of sharing identifying data such as a NAME that other people might recognize. Emotional data is personal. Generally share with people who care before sharing generally.
You may also EXIT Track A Trigger. You will be asked to set a timer for a "check-in." When the timer finished, the application will ask you to re-evaluate your body, emotional, and mind states. This is very valuable data for measuring your progress in emotional regulation over time.
You may also RESOURCE yourself using a variety of strategies including opening a gallery of photos that help you "shift", listening to a guided visualization, and other strategies.
You may also PROCESS the trigger. This requires a solid understanding of the PROTECTORS and practiced mindfulness so you can identify PROTECTER thoughts and return your attention to your body sensations. The body knows what to do to process "unfinished" overwhelming experiences from the past. [n/a Beta 2/2014]
Familiarize yourself with the interface and learn more about the PROTECTORS by pressing the information icon (an "i" inside a circle) next to the PROTECTOR name.
With regular use, expect noticeable reductions in the intensity and duration of triggered states.

Full application description:
Do you want to deepen and enhance your relationship with your partner? Mindful Love is designed to do just that by helping you think about your partner in new ways, learn more about your partner, and aid in personal growth. There may be times you go your whole day without thinking of your partner. Mindful Love is a game designed to remind you to take a moment out of life’s busy flow, to develop your relationship with your partner.
Mindful Love is loaded with 365 questions about your partner, one for every day of the year. These questions were designed to help you to better know your partner (e.g., “Where did you and your partner share your first kiss?”). This app was carefully designed by a licensed professional counselor with years of experience dealing with marital issues and relationships.
The concept for the Mindful Love App is based around two psychological concepts: mindfulness, and knowing your partner. The idea behind the game is FUN and the questions are designed to be conflict-free.
How to use:
* You can set the reminder alarm to go off randomly, or at a set time that is convenient for you.
* When you get the daily question, take time to think about the question and your partner.
* Check in with your partner about your answer.
* Your partner can tell you if you got it right, or discuss the answer with you. Don’t feel bad if you miss the question, because you have just learned something new about your partner.
* Ask your partner to answer the question about you.
When you make it to the end of the game in a year, start again! Check in to see if you still remember where your first kiss was, or if your partner’s favorite kind of candy has changed. With the Mindful Love App you will be learning about your partner in healthy and marvelous ways for years to come and promoting a healthy friendship!
