User Testimonials

The app has helped me feel secure, and cared for, just the act of making me part of the study was enough. On top of that, when I am stressed and I get a message, the app tells me how to calm down! It is truly amazing what it does to the mind.

I was messaging with someone. It was becoming stressful. I was about to respond in a way that I would have regretted later on. That is when I received an alert. I realized I was stressed. I calmed down. I then changed my response to something more thoughtful.

I was rushing to the office, changing lanes frequently. That is when I received the first prompt. I realized I was stressed. I calmed down and the rest of the commute was peaceful.
