Put anxiety & stress into perspective with Worry Watch app, picked as one of the best anxiety apps consecutively for past 4 years by Healthline.com.
About the app:
Often we worry about everyday things. Later we realize most of those worries were unnecessary and some irrational too. Yet, we worry again for something else soon. Worry Watch is a unique app that helps to reflect on those momentary priceless self-realizations.
By writing down our ‘what if’ anxious thoughts and tracking it to ‘what did’ happen reality, we may get a deeper understanding of our anxiety patterns and triggers. Such an understanding may help challenge our negative thinking habits and affirm optimism instead.
How it works:
Write down what is bothering you and set a reminder to revisit the outcome later.
Once past the worry, note whether the outcome was as bad as worried.
Keep journaling and analyze your thought patterns logically with the help of statistics & dashboard.
Based on your own statistics, realize that your worries may be mostly unfounded.
Challenge your worry perception when you tend to be anxious again.

1. Face ID or Touch ID or passcode protection

Ratings and Reviews
Provides great perspective
I’ve always spent a lot of time and energy worrying about things that may or may not actually happen, and if they do, may or may not end up as bad as I feared. Using this app has allowed me to verbalize my fears, categorize them, and reflect back on them. In doing so, I’m able to identify unnecessary worry more quickly when something similar occurs. I like to use the notes section of each event to spill all my thoughts, set a reminder to revisit the event, and (as much as possible) just forget about it until then. Because I verbalized all my thoughts and worries, I’m able to obsess over them less on a daily basis. And when I revisit it, it’s almost always not as bad as I had thought it would be.
Customer service is also fantastic. They are quick to respond to questions and very receptive to suggestions.
Write it down and walk away
This is a fantastic app that helps me get my anxieties out and find some relief. I worry about the most random things and can never seem to let them go until the outcome has arrived. This adds a lot whole lot of additional stress in my life I don’t need.
With this app, I’m able to write down my worry, set a reminder, and walk away from worrying about it. After I write it down, I feel so much better and 80% of the time I can drop whatever it is I’m worrying about, knowing the reminder will alert me to record the outcome. I feel that the more I use it, the more I will be able to rid my mind of my worry once written down and bring that 80% to 100%.
I love seeing the percentages of the outcomes and realizing that what worries me is usually never as bad as I had thought.
This is incredible. I cannot wait to use it more. I am having a high anxiety day today, I made 5 different entries, 3 of which have resolved and I was able to click no. Thank goodness lol.
However, it would be nice if on the list of worries that it showed what they are marked as (yes, no...). Or checkmark on the side showing you have already marked the item.
