Cove

Ideal for: Mood

Journal app Cove offers a unique approach to understanding and communicating one’s emotional state.

The result is a powerful account of one’s personal journey, told in the form of an emotional symphony.

Tetris

Ideal for: Cravings

App Store | Google Play

Yep, that Tetris. Research has shown that playing a few rounds of Tetris can reduce the severity of cravings. The iconic game that pits players against a board of geometric doom, also overrides feelings of craving. How, you say? By activating the same neural pathways responsible for image recall and memory, the same route used by craving sensations. 

Tru

A journal app that packs a great deal of psycho-education into its regimen. The app features tests at the end of each lesson for users to measure cognitive-behavioral progress.

Stigma

Ideal for: Emotion

Mood trackers are insightful tools especially when used in conjunction with a therapist. Stigma is an effective tool for people to gain a clearer understanding on what factors influence their emotional well-being. In as early as a few weeks, users may begin to recognize patterns in their lives that have not been as obvious to them before.
