Chatter by Ethan Kross

1-Sentence-SummaryChatter aims to help its readers make sense of the inner mind chatter that seems to be taking over our minds at times, and help you quiet the negative thoughts, stop the overthinking that often leads to feelings of anxiety and depression, and learn useful practices to help yourself alleviate negative emotions.
