How Worry Time Helps with Obsessive & Intrusive Thoughts

How Worry Time Helps with Obsessive & Intrusive Thoughts

Are you struggling with constant, intrusive, & unrelenting thoughts?

You know how overwhelming these thoughts can be, taking up so much of your time & making it hard to focus on anything else..

For some people, it can be part of a psychological disorder like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

OCD is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide.

It is characterized by uncontrollable, repetitive thoughts (obsessions) and/or behaviors (compulsions) that interfere significantly with your daily life.

The "Worry Time" strategy has shown promise in helping individuals with obsessive & intrusive thoughts.

With the Contain Your Brain app, you can set aside specific time to actively engage with & address obsessive thoughts & worries, rather than allowing them to consume your entire day.

By scheduling and limiting the time spent on these thoughts, individuals can regain a sense of control over their lives and reduce the negative impact that OCD has on their daily functioning.

I had a similar app but they collected your data and I didn't like it, so I am glad to know that your app doesn't collect user data.

I love the idea of blocking out worry time!!
This makes so much more sense than just trying to stop worrying.

I like that the app lets you edit your worries, schedule worry times across days, and also export your worries.
