Las Vegas, NV, February 24, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The American Psychological Association published a report on February 15th that Americans are dealing with increased stress about politics, acts of terrorism, police violence, and personal safety.
Additionally, the percentage of people dealing with stress-related health symptoms rose 9% over a five-month time span.
Individuals are encouraged to take steps to mitigate personal stressors. If the news is stressful, watch less of it. Think about other positive things. Brainstorm what actions you can take to be part of positive change.
MassInflux, LLC., a small web and mobile app development company that specializes on projects that add value to the world, has released a new feature for thier product, MyCheerleader, to help meet this increased need for help with stress management.
MyCheerleader delivers positive messaging that can be customized by individual settings to deliver any messages that an individual needs affirm. MyCheerleader.net can be used to help focus on positive messages. Individuals can create personal lists of positive encouraging statements to remind them to think positively and break negative, stressful thought patterns.
"We want Alexa users to be able to use their new technology to increase mental wellbeing through positive self-programming," says cofounder Alice Vo Edwards who is involved in their hometown of Las Vegas in research and workshops on happiness and well-being. Alice says the project was inspired after seeing how attached her elderly father, who lives alone, was to his Alexa and how much he likes having it tell him things.
MyCheerleader, prior to now, had been limited to users receiving the messages via Amazon Alexa by saying, "Alexa, open MyCheerleader" after they had installed the skill.
With the newest release, users can receive positive messages sent directly to their cell phones up to three times a day via SMS text message.
