GG Apps updated with new font, language

Today and tomorrow we are rolling out a much anticipated to our line of apps. Our new version now supports Right-to-left languages, and for this new feature we also updated the font to a more contemporary, readable on (Open Sans).

These changes will hopefully make the app content more comprehensible for your short training sessions.

The apps currently being updated: GGRO, GGOC and GGBI (our newest app, make sure you try it out if you want to improve your body image).

GGRO will support, following this update, 3 languages: English, Spanish and Hebrew. We are also working on Italian and would really like to add more languages as soon as we can. The reason we don’t do that too often is we need to make sure our content is not just translated properly, but also works in the translated language in terms of context and culture.

Over the next few weeks, we are planning to add a fourth member to our little family – GGSE: Self Esteem. This more ‘vanilla’ app is designed for wide audience, such as people who don’t suffer from a specific condition but would still like to train and improve their well being.

Stay tuned, and let us know if you experience any issues with the update.

I have doubts about my relationship. Is it normal?

Doubt is a defensive mechanism. Its purpose is to warn and protect us from mistakes and danger. A good balance between confidence and doubt ensures we can operate in this world freely and happily.

However, some people find it much more common to be unsure about things that for others can be more straightforward. For example, we can get preoccupied or obsessed about our partner, spouse or loved ones. This obsessive behaviour and thinking can prevent us from seeing clearly and making the right choices. Instead of protecting us, it can damage our relationships and our well being.

Worrying, having doubts or even being preoccupied with a particular relationship does not automatically suggest a diagnosis of a relationship obsession.

Like other OCD symptoms, relationship-related OC symptoms require psychological intervention only when causing significant distress and are incapacitating. Assessing ROCD symptoms, however, is further complicated by the fact that such experiences, even if distressing, may still be a part of the normal course of a still developing relationship, mainly during the flirting and dating stages of a relationship, or reflect real life problems.

Our app, GGRO: Relationship Doubt, is focused on helping people improve their condition whether they have normal doubts or if they suffer from Relationship OCD. We believe training for 3-5 minutes a day can benefit users by reducing symptoms and challenging beliefs that hinder our judgement.
