As someone who’s struggled with depression and anxiety, who runs a website that recommends tools and practices for peace and happiness, I was excited to learn about the Mevii app a couple months ago.
I’m even more excited to offer 500 readers a chance to try the app for free. But first…
What Is Mevii?
At the heart of cognitive behavioral therapy is the idea that your thoughts and actions affect your feelings—whether it’s a fleeting emotion or a longer lasting mood.
I first learned about this concept in therapy, at twelve years old. It seems so obvious now, but as a child I had no idea I could change my feelings by taking a closer look at the thoughts that preceded them.
I also didn’t have anything more than a notebook and pen to do this inner work—and I often wished I had my therapist on speed dial so she could help me recognize and change my unhealthy patterns between my bi-weekly appointments.
I think we could all benefit from this kind of ongoing support and guidance, especially when doing something as challenging as changing deeply ingrained habits.
Although that’s not an affordable option for most of us, fortunately, there’s an app for that.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, dejected, anxious, and out of control, Mevii can help you identify and tackle the root causes to find a sense of peace, calm, and balance in your daily life.
How Does Mevii Work?
The app includes six modules, designed to be completed in order, one per week, allowing you to:
- Identify and manage your stress triggers
- Record your thoughts, feelings, barriers, and accomplishments
- Learn techniques to help you relax throughout your day
- Improve your health habits
- Identify and reframe negative thoughts
- Improve the quality of your connections
- Set goals to maintain your well-being
Most important, it’s highly personalized, offering you a customized plan based on your answers to questions about your current feelings, thought processes, and behaviors.
I’ve seen a lot of tools to combat stress, anxiety, and moderate depression, but none quite as comprehensive as Mevii. I highly recommend the app to anyone who’s looking to develop practical skills to manage their mood.
What’s Required to Use Mevii?
Mevii is designed for smartphones, specifically iPhones and Android.
Supported devices include: iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, and Android 2.1 and up.
How Can You Try It for Free?
Ordinarily, Mevii costs $3.99, but it’s available for free to the first 500 people (in the US only) who claim it here: https://www.mevii.com/partners/?c=ITBB16
Please note that by claiming your free download, you’re agreeing to receive occasional emails from Mevii with questions to help them improve the app.
