Ap Review: Bearable

Is the abbreviation for application ap or app? Google seems to think they are interchangeable, so I will keep using whichever feels right in the moment. Language is just a bunch of made up words anyway. The order of the alphabet is arbitrary. Definitions are only valid because enough people agree on them. ANYWAY.

Today I am going to review the ap Bearable. When I was researching mental health aps, I honestly downloaded this one because of the adorable polar bear logo. Look at that face. Tell me you can see that adorable bear resting and not smile a tiny bit. LOOK AT IT.

This ap helps you learn to track your mental health and notice what factors contribute to increased or decreased symptoms. It is incredibly thorough, though some options can only be unlocked with the premium version. As with all the aps I review, I only used the free version when I explored Bearable. When you first download the ap, it asks you about your goals with using Bearable, and it tailors your experience based on what you report are your needs.

Mood, Symptoms, Energy Levels, Self Improvement, Bowel Movements

Over time, the Insights page starts to give you feedback and draws your attention to what seems to be impacting your mental health. You can customize and change what it keeps track of and update your goals at any time.

Welcome! Your homepage is ready

If you are looking for an efficient way to track your symptoms and notice patterns in your life, Bearable is a great way to do that. It gives an external perspective to notice things you might not pick up on by yourself, and it has you track things you might not realize impact your mental health.

What aps have you been using to benefit your mental health? What aps are you curious about but hesitant to download? Tell me, and I will try to review them for the blog!
