Panic and anxiety attacks are no joke. And they’re nothing to be ashamed of. The good thing about social media is that there is an open dialogue about these things—which means you are not alone.
And in this day of technology—there’s an app for that! Not for getting an attack, duh. But for handling an attack.
Rootd offers lessons on understanding panic attacks and anxiety. The app’s therapist-approved features include a panic button for when you’re experiencing a panic attack.
“Anxiety and panic attacks can be terrifying and defeating. Once I found the resources that helped me manage and overcome them, I knew I had to package that knowledge together with my design skills to create something easily digestible and accessible to help others who were suffering from anxiety and panic attacks,” said Ania Wysocka, founder and creator of Rootd.
Rootd encourages users to tackle short-term and long-term goals with helpful tips. Other features include a deep-breathing tool, a body scan tool, guided visualizations, and soothing nature sounds.
Available for in the App Store and in Google Play.
