Not Just for Eating Disorders: Cognitive Diary App Named in Healthline's Best Eating Disorders Recovery Apps!
by Monica A. Frank, PhD
For the fifth year in a row Excel At Life's popular app Cognitive Diary CBT Self-help
has been selected by Healthline as one of the Best Eating Disorder Recovery Apps
Although the Cognitive Diary app can be a useful tool for eating disorders, it is not just for eating disorders. Many people use the diary for depression, anxiety, relationship problems, anger managenment, and
a host of other issues. The Cognitive Diary can be used whenever thinking creates unhelpful emotional reactions and behavior.
Not only does Excel At Life provide the free Cognitive Diary app, but the website provides almost 40 Cognitive Diary Training Examples
. These training examples give you an opportunity to learn how
to identify thinking errors that can contribute to problems. Each example has a detailed description of the primary thinking errors that can cause problems in the situation described. Even if the
situation doesn't pertain to you, it is a useful exercise in learning to identify problematic thinking.
