Everyone has worries pop into their head from time to time, but sometimes they won't go away and start to impact your everyday life.
ReachOut WorryTime interrupts this repetitive thinking by setting aside your worries until later, so you don't get caught up in them and can get on with your day. This means you can deal with worries once a day, rather than carrying them around with you 24/7.
Decide on a time, place and length of time to deal with your worries each day.
When you notice yourself worrying about something, add it to WorryTime and get on with your day.
Use your WorryTime to review the worries you've added and ditch the ones that no longer matter to you.
Produced in consultation with the Centre for Clinical Interventions, ReachOut WorryTime is based on cognitive behavioural techniques that are used by health and wellbeing practitioners to assist people with anxiety and stress.
Manage the symptoms of anxiety, worry and rumination.
Disclaimer: may be used with or without support from a registered health practitioner, but you may wish to consult with your local health or wellbeing practitioner if you are uncertain about using it.

Great app, but!!!
This app is great but I'd appreciate it if you could change your worry time incase you miss it.
My therapist got me to download this app as part of our working together and it's very effective, works great to help me stop anxiety interfering in my life, and target what I worry about most so she can help me challenge it or come up with strategies to handle it.
Great app when it works, the problem is I keep missing my worry time because the notifications aren't working.
