App Description

Stop worrying in 5 simple steps:

1. Write down your worries and set a reminder to revisit the outcome later (Record)

2. Once past the worry, note whether the outcome was as bad as worried (Reflect)

3. Analyze the thought patterns with the help of statistics generated (Realize)

4. Identify the cognitive biases that triggered the anxiety. (Reason)

5. Affirm optimism with daily and weekly reminders. Challenge your worry perception when you tend to be anxious again. (Refute)

Record > Reflect > Reason > Realise > Refute

About the app:
Worry Watch app is built on the foundations of cognitive science where a mere awareness of one's cognitive bias alters subsequent thinking profoundly.

Often we worry about everyday things. Later we realize most of those worries were unnecessary and some irrational too. Yet, we worry again for something else soon. Worry Watch is a unique app that helps to reflect on those momentary priceless self-realizations.

By writing down our ‘what if’ hypothetical scenarios and tracking it to ‘what did’ actually happen, we may get a deeper understanding of our anxiety patterns and triggers. Such an understanding may help challenge our negative thinking habits and affirm optimism instead.
