NYTimes article about research on mobile therapy apps

"In the past few years researchers have been testing simple video-game-like programs aimed at relieving common problems like anxiety and depression. These recent results have been encouraging enough that investigators are now delivering the programs on smartphones — therapy apps, in effect, that may soon make psychological help accessible anytime, anywhere, whether in the grocery store line, on the bus or just before a work presentation."

I found a pretty cool app a couple of months ago called Mind Shift, it is designed to comfront anxety.
It is focused on teenagers but adults can get a lot from it too.

I swear to you gentlemen, that to be overly conscious is a sickness, a real, thorough sickness.

It must be for the very last time

There must be someone to blame..."
