Many people suffer from anxiety. I’m not ashamed to say that I am one of them. A lot of times my anxiety can get in the way of my work and social life. Like most people I try to carry on with my day to the best of my abilities, but there are some days where anxiety will win and I have to start all over again.
Before I continue, I want to say these are my own personal thoughts and experiences. Everyone is different-please consult a doctor or medical professional if you feel your anxiety has worsened or if you are having other uncontrollable thoughts.
I have dealt with severe anxiety over the last two years due to a traumatic event in 2013. Since then, I have faced debilitating anxiety attacks that last anywhere from a few minutes to keeping me home for days because the slightest thing starts to trigger me.
One day while surfing the web, I came across this app called Mindshift . From their website it states “MindShift is an app designed to help teens and young adults cope with anxiety. It can help you change how you think about anxiety. Rather than trying to avoid anxiety, you can make an important shift and face it.”
Habit tracking has become a huge part of my life. I now actively add Mindshift to my daily routine (before bed) as it helps me keep track of my body and signals that may be happening prior to an anxiety attack.
Many of the coping mechanisms are effective and have greatly enhanced my ability to handle my anxiety attacks. If you are looking for something to help with daily anxiety I highly recommend this app!
