Mental health is of great concern but never addressed in the right way most of the time. The pandemic made this worse and took us to the world of perpetual mood swings and anxiety. Receiving professional help was hindered due to lockdown and social distancing practices.
RELAXIFYAPP came to the rescue at this point. It is a Science-Based Mental Fitness & Well-Being Psychology Mobile App. The app is available to people of all age groups who experience stress at work and crave a peaceful life. It contains games and exercises to improve mental health and can be monitored and evaluated at each stage. We were fortunate to interact with Aleksandar Stankov, CEO – Co-founder of Relaxifyapp and a brief excerpt of the conversation is provided as follows.
