CHARLOTTE’S FAVOURITE FIVE APPS AS A YOUNG NEURODIVERGENT PERSON
Hi! I’m Charlotte, and as a neurodivergent person, I rely a lot on my phone to keep me organised. Using apps and alarms helps me to maintain habits I struggle to do by myself, and having them has allowed me a higher level of independence and organisation that I would struggle to achieve without resources like this. I’ve put together a list of my five favourite apps I use to make my life just a little bit easier, maybe you’ll find something that helps you too!
Moodflow is the best diary app I’ve used. It lets you log as much or as little as you want with full control over the details of your entries. The simplicity of selecting different icons to represent my feelings from the day and activities I did helps me to reflect on the day without even having to write anything if I don’t feel up to it. Seeing how I felt each day during my week/month at a glance represented by colours helps me to notice recurring patterns in what I do, who I talk to and how it makes me feel. It’s incredibly reassuring to be able to password restrict your diary, and keep things private, and much more accessible for me than writing in a physical diary especially if you get pain in your hands or just find writing difficult like I do.
These screenshots show how you add your mood, activities etc for each day and also the different overview of the analytics to show how you have recorded your mood each day and allow you to see any trends that contribute to how you are feeling.
