Minimize The Catastrophizing

  1. Stop worrying about the future, or dwelling on the past too much, and stay in the present, as it is the only reality there is.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
