This is a list of my weekly favorites: apps, books, and TED talks.

My Favorite Apps

Moodnotes: It is a journal to capture your mood and help improve your thinking habits. I use it on my phone (iOS) when I’m feeling some type of way and it has been helpful to check my thought process. It has prevented spiraling several times now.

Moodnotes helps you to:

  • Track your mood and identify what triggers it
  • Develop healthier thinking habits
  • Learn about “traps” in your thinking and how to avoid them
  • Reduce anxiety and enhance your sense of well-being
  • Bring new, helpful perspectives to situations
  • Increase your self-awareness

My Favorite Audiobook

Me Talk Pretty One Day

My Favorite TED Talks

Where joy hides and how to find it

By Ingrid Fetell Lee

There is one person in my life who find joy in just about everything. I’m envious of this ability. I once thought joy was self-indulgent, but I’m questioning that now. I’m trying to put myself in the path of joy.

What’s so funny about mental illness?

By Ruby Wax

This is an oldie but a goodie. Her spastic approach to discussing mental health makes me feel at home. My thought move nearly as fast.

I dug archaeology, taught technology, and found myself in real estate, but don’t worry. I still write, draw, swear, and drink coffee.
