How Worry Time helps with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a mental health condition characterized by excessive, persistent, and unrealistic worry and anxiety about everyday events and activities.
People with GAD worry A LOT about a range of things, including work, school, health, relationships, and finances, even when there is no obvious reason to be concerned.
These worries interfere with daily activities, like work, school, and socializing, and can also lead to physical symptoms, such as muscle tension, headaches, and fatigue.
Using worry time is a cognitive-behavioral technique that can be helpful for managing symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
With the Contain Your Brain app, you can set aside specific time to actively engage with & address your worries, rather than allowing them to take over your life.
Contain Your Brain helps you set aside a specific time and place each day to worry. The idea is that you only worry in that time and in that place. When worries pop in during the day, you just add them into the app. Then in your worry time, you use the Contain Your Brain method to deal with each worry effectively.
Just imagine if you could contain your worries to just 30 minutes a day! Well you can!
