Personal Zen, an App that helps to reduce stress with the use of a simple repetitive game

Achievement Unlocked

 

Laughing Squid:

 

Personal Zen is an app that helps to reduce stress through the use of a simple repetitive game that allows users to retrain thought patterns and heighten positive focus.

When we get anxious or stressed, we pay too much attention to the negatives and have less ability to see the positives in life. These habits of attention reduce our ability to cope effectively with stress and can create a vicious cycle of anxiety. Personal Zen helps to short-circuit these habits and frees you up to develop a more flexible and positive focus.

 

Personal Zen is available for free on the App Store

FoodBeast:

 

Even though Hello Kitty is officially no longer a cat, we can confirm that she is indeed now a musubi.

This totally kawaii snack is the result of a collaboration between acclaimed chef, Roy Choi, and Spam. Almost too adorable to eat, the Hello Kitty Musubi will be available on the room service menu at the Line Hotel in Los Angeles, which also happens to be the official hotel of Hello Kitty Con. Yes, it’s a thing.

This isn’t the first time everyone’s favorite cat, er, cartoon character, has been immortalized in edible form. Other Hello Kitty culinary creations include fried tofu, donuts, steamed buns, and booze.
