We all get stressed from time to time, however how we choose to cope with these anxious and stressed out situations is what's important. 

When I was struggling with panic attacks and anxiety, I wanted ways in which I could calm myself down in a quick and useful way. We live in a society in which our whole lives revolve around technology, so the fact that I could find an app in which it could calm me down within seconds of going on my phone was extremely helpful. 

 

Here are a list of apps that helped me and can help you! 

Emergency chat: An app made specifically for when you are suffering from an anxiety attack, the app is really easy to use, all you have to do is give your phone to someone who you are finding it hard to communicate with during an attack, it’s like a texting app in which you can communicate with the person using an easy messenger.
