A Phone App That Helps with Anxiety!?

Hello Luuuxers! Unfortunately I have struggled with anxiety throughout my entire life. It has at times gotten to the point where it interferes with my daily life. I`ve struggled with ways on how to monitor my anxiety levels and to find exercises to help relieve the anxiety, but then I found the SAM app last year!

SAM stands for Self-help for Anxiety Management. The app was developed at the University of the West of England. It`s completely free to download and does not take up much space on your phone. There are 8 different categories in the app with each one having a specialized way of working through your anxiety. You can plug in your daily anxiety levels by using a slider, look at a graph to see your progress, make a list of what makes you anxious, and create a `toolkit` of different exercises that you can do to help make your everyday life easier!

I don`t use the app everyday, but when I`m going through a rough patch its nice to have something so I can see all the progress that I`ve been making! The app also gives links for immediate help if you are truly suffering from anxiety and need more than just a phone app.

I think SAM is a very useful app that can really help some people in managing with their anxiety. Do any of you Luuuxers have issues with anxiety? Let me know in the comments!
