Beyond 5 Stars (I’m obsessed!)

I experienced some trauma over the summer and have been looking at ways to grapple with my thoughts. Calling this app has is an understatement!

Face-to-face therapy sessions weren’t too effective for me, but I came across this app and became obsessed after I finished my very first voice note. I think you’re meant to keep them short and brief (about a minute) but my first voice note was 45 minutes long 🤪 This blew my mind as I don’t normally vocalise these thoughts because I can’t articulate them very well. The app uses prompts at the start of each day to hold your hand through your thinking, making this super accessible in a way that I has never felt before. I’ve always been a sceptic of these kinds of things…but all I can say is try it and you’ll love it!

I’m sure everyone experiences it differently but I can’t talk about Sound Off enough. I’m beyond thankful for the team who created this app. Give it a try, fall in love with the warm voice prompts, and feel so much better after venting your thoughts each day 💕

Journaling made easy

I used to be quite into writing physical diary entries - especially after a long day at work. The act of getting those thoughts out of my head and onto the page worked wonders for my mental health. Initially I was quite sceptical about this because I had a system that worked but believe me, this makes journaling way easier. I don’t have to worry about having the right pen or paper, I get reminded to Sound Off before I go to sleep and there’s also a lot of guided content on here which I’m yet to try. This feels like a cross between journaling and meditating and I’m also enjoying the ease of having all my entries available at my fingertips, wherever I happen to be. Give this a go, you will be surprised!

Great journaling app with undoubtedly many more features to come!

This is a great app to help guide you through journaling and just get your thoughts out. Voice journaling is something I hadn’t tried before before getting the app and it’s a really nice peaceful thing to do and help you understand the day better. The main benefit for me of using this in comparison to normal voice recordings is that there are guided journaling things on the app which is nice. Although there are certainly a few improvements to be made, it’s off to a great start and can’t wait to continue to use it.
