Free/ Clear and easy-to-achieve goals.
Focused on small behavioral changes – not a full intervention program.
Daily Challenge is a simple-to-use app suitable for users of all ages (teens and up). The app could be helpful for people who need a structured or concrete framework through which to incorporate small behavioral changes into their lives. The different challenges are clear, focused, and easy to achieve. Each challenge is accompanied by a short explanation and delivered in a non-judgmental manner. Some challenges also include demonstration videos for clarification (e.g., demonstrating a certain physical exercise). Comments from other users contribute to a sense of community and assist in motivating users to complete the challenges.
Notes for Clinicians
Daily Challenge can be recommended as a supplement to ongoing treatment for patients who have a reasonable amount of energy and motivation; however, it is less suitable for people who struggle with mental conditions such as mood disorders that affect these aspects. The therapist can assist in the selection of the challenge track, as well as promote in-session discussion of the challenges and the patient’s reflections on the process.
