The idea behind the app
This app uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques to help individuals identify and recognize thought and behavior patterns. The central idea with CBT is that thoughts control behavior, and through identifying thoughts, and handling them, you are ultimately able to change your behaviors. Once you are able to identify your thoughts, you can come up with a replacement that is more positive. Since our behaviors are a simple result of our thoughts and feelings, our behavior will change in a positive way with this new positive replacement. By consistently changing your negative thoughts to positive ones, you are rewiring your brain into thinking more positively about situations. By having a more positive outlook, you are able to show more positive behaviors.

Riding on an airplane to Alabama in December of 2019, I had the idea to create an app that would help people struggling with negative thoughts. This project idea means a lot to me and is something I hold close to my heart. Personally I wanted this app to exist to not only help myself but also help others including my own family and friends.
I am a huge supporter of advocating for mental health awareness. I know everyone struggles with automatic negative thoughts time to time so this is an app whose entire purpose is to help.Donate
