I love the fact I haven't seen any ads yet, but the app is super buggy. It closes every time I try to turn on the test reminder or set a mood for a task. Too bad, too. It's a cute app with a lot of what I need. Uninstalling until an update fixes this.

During Covid 19, was feeling isolated, depressed, stressed even keeping in touch with people by texting and didn't want to rely on them when my anxiety was getting the better of me, as they were trying to keep their own spirits up. Decided I needed something else to help me and this app was it. Very user friendly, flexible, with insightful options. So happy I gave it a try!

This has been recommended to me by my psychiatrist, and although a bit rudimentary it was absolutely useful in my help away from my major anxiety disorder. The guided meditation videos on here are wonderful and I am absolutely determined to try actively going through all the practices and recommended books on it bit by bit.
