Virtually Relive Your Anxiety With The Stress Balloon

The Sosh Lite app can be used by those who have a desire to be social but have obstacles in their way (like me) or parent, teachers, therapists, and so on who want to help them with social skills. One of the features stood out the most to me: the stress balloon (my favorite)! Click on the Stress button and there is a virtual air pump to push and relieve stress or anxiety, which worked for me.


Shred Your Stressful Feelings In The Shredder and Transition Between Activities

Another good feature is the Shredder. Got a negative feeling, thought, or situation that you’re feeling stressed or anxious about? Just type that in and then virtually shred it.  Or the Transition Timer that helps the individual transition to another situation (aka change)…Lord knows I have a hard time transitioning most of the time, so that helps.

There is a warning and countdown on the Timer as well.

The only problem is that Sosh Lite crashes too easily; one second the app is open, another second it’s not. Still, I would really recommend Sosh Lite for those who struggle with social anxiety (and for the stress pump), and I’m sure that the paid version is more stable. Here’s the link for Sōsh™ – Dr. Mark Bowers, if you’d like to check it out.

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
