Want to develop better thinking habits? There’s an app for that

If you download Moodnotes you will need to change your usual response and instead tell the truth on a daily basis.

With one in four people suffering from mental health issues each year and with an estimated 450 million people worldwide the creators from oust have built an easy to use and engaging app that encourages users to reflect on how they feel and turn their emotions into data.

This new mental health app is aimed at individuals that want to address their thinking habits in order to create a healthier state of wind. Developed by two clinical psychologists, Moodnotes uses the principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT is a widely used form of therapy that can help tackle a number of psychological issues, including in this case mood tracking and thinking.

Nicki Sprinz of oust told Wired: “We’re all conscious of the impact that stress, anxiety and depression can have on an individual lives and wanted to look at a digital solution to help people manage their emotional health. We’re not unique in believing that the current cognitive overload of modern life requires a dedicated outlet, but our solution came in the form of a journal, with psychological advice subtly baked into the experience.”

This app is a great tool for anyone looking to get the most out of their mind.
