A New App to Help With Depression Management

 “This post was developed in partnership with Pfizer as part of an Influencer Activation for InfluenceCentral.”

I know many people who struggle with depression. It can be very difficult for them to even complete the smallest tasks and in the worst stages to even get out of bed. It is very hard to watch someone you care about go through this because you know that they have so much good to contribute to the world.Thankfully we are now very aware of depression and understand that there is help available.

Millions in the United States suffer from depression and 1 in 15 adults have reported experiencing one major depressive episode in any given year. People can feel overwhelmed, alone and hopeless when dealing with their depression. Treatment for depression often includes a number of approaches such as talk therapy, medication, peer support, and a personal wellness plan.

However, even with all that, it can be hard for some patients to stick with their treatment plan. The results of a recent survey found that 70% of patients being treated for depression or another mental health disorder would appreciate some type of mobile tracker to monitor their moods, treatment,progress and more. The good news is that with all the advances in technology there are tools that can help patients as they manage their depression.

Recently, I was selected to test an app developed by Pfizer called the Moodivator. Pfizer consulted with psychiatrists to create this helpful tool that goes along with a patient’s treatment to provide motivation in a simple, effective and mobile way. The Moodivator lets patients track their mood,set goals, establish routines and more that may assist them and complement their treatment. The app is easy to navigate and use, you can see a video about it HERE.

The app is free and can be downloaded for iPhones at the Apple App Store. I downloaded it recently and was amazed at how easy it was to begin using. I liked that you could easily enter your mood and then add details of why you feel that way. You can also set goals for yourself. They can be things that you need to achieve that day or long-term goals.

moodivator-5You are able to enter and keep track of important work, personal or family tasks as well.  There is also a reason that you enter for your goal so that you can remember why it is so important to achieve. Having an app like this on my smartphone makes it easy to see how this can really help someone who is taking baby steps to make positive changes and get more out of life.

moodivator-1

If patients use the app consistently it can provide great insight to them about why they feel certain ways and perhaps notice a pattern that can even be shared with their care givers if they choose. The mood tracker is a simple sliding scale so it is easy to adjust and record mood changes throughout the day. They may notice that they experience sadness at a certain time every day and may find it is triggered by the same thing every time. That knowledge can help them identify and eliminate triggers that will help them break that cycle

“The Moodivator app is not a treatment for depression and does not take the place of your doctor’scare or advice. This app also includes information about a prescription treatment option for depression.”

Discover A Safer Baby Wipe & Enter To Win 1 of 5 Babies “R” Us Gift Cards!!! #WaterWipesBRU

“This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.”

Anyone that know me, knows that I try to live as naturally as possible. I do not use harmful pesticides in my yard or garden, do not use toxic cleaners or detergents in my home and try to find more natural ways to do most everything. I truly believe the amount of harmful chemicals in our everyday products are the reason cancer, infertility, autism, miscarriage and Alzheimer’s rates have risen so dramatically. As the mother of a cancer survivor getting rid of toxic products is of paramount importance to me.

I really have an issue with chemicals in baby and children’s products, so I have replaced the ones we use with non-toxic options. Baby wipes are something most parents use every day with little ones and did you know that most are filled with dangerous chemicals? They are, and so are hand and face wipes and towelettes.

As a mother of 5 and with my youngest child having a dirty face or hands about 100 times through the day, I know that baby wipes are useful way beyond the diaper stage. I keep baby wipes on me at all times. Seriously they are in my car, in my purse, in my tote bag, in the house and they come on vacation. I would never travel without them. They are so handy for so many little emergencies we parents face on a daily basis.

There is no questions that I need baby wipes, it is just the toxic chemicals in them that I don’t condone. Short of making my own, I was stuck. That is why I was so glad to find WaterWipes when shopping at my local Babies “R” Us recently. WaterWipes are a thick, durable wipe that is great for diaper changes, hands and faces. Best of all WaterWipes contain only two ingredients, 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract.

I picked up a couple of he 60-count resealable packs and have to say, I am very impressed. They work great and I just put them through the paces on our recent vacation. Since they are in soft resealable packs they are easy for me to pop in a tote, my purse, backpack or beach bag.

With eating in the car, hiking, going to the beach, hanging around the pool and in our hotel they got a workout and worked perfectly. They are gentle and effective, do the job I need them to and I don’t worry about spreading nasty chemicals all over my kids. WaterWipes are a safer, natural option and one we will be using from now on.

Are your kids going to day camp, sleep away camp or a summer swim program?  My kids are g summer activities program at our local youth center. That means they will be bringing towels, water bottles, swim gear, bags, hoodies, toys, books and other things to a place where many other children have the same  stuff.  That’s a recipe for things getting lost or accidentally picked up by someone else.

To try to curtail lost or misidentified items, I label everything. Recently I went on Mabel’s Labels and ordered one of their Limited Edition Camp Packs.  The website was easy to navigate and the camp pack gives you a ton of labels and tags for only $39.95! I was able to customize the labels and the include labels of various sizes that are durable, dishwasher safe and there are even 2 bag tags that can attach to luggage, duffel bags and more.
