CompleteMyToDos has allowed me to regain a sense of independence and stability. It helps me remember the tasks I have to get done and it allows me to record recurring tasks. I love being able to journal within the app so I can write thoughts and ideas about my tasks or even just things I must remember.
What people are saying…
Many times I am reading or working and realize that I am spending too much time on my activities. PaceMyDay provides me with a tool that tracks my time and notifies me to take breaks. It helps me manage my energy.
StrategizeMyLife has allowed me to create a digital binder of strategies for different scenarios and has been especially helpful with my therapists. I get to write the different exercises and tricks my therapists give to be able to perform them better thus helping with my overall recovery.
I kept comparing my energy levels post-injury to pre-injury and was often frustrated. Using PaceMyDay helped me realize I needed to redefine my new normal for high energy post-injury.
ReachMyGoals has been an incredible resource to help me set goals that are attainable and in-line with what my capabilities are.
Going through the step-by-step process of creating a goal in ReachMyGoals, I had the insight that I would create one goal that should have really been multiple goals. I think that is one reason why I never could start or accomplish my goals after my injury.
My life after brain injury has significantly improved since I started using the BEST Suite. The apps allow me to have a toolkit that helps my brain feel a bit more “normal.”
I use StrategizeMyLife as a memory bank for information. I create a list of strategy groups; for instance, a decision making group. Inside that group, I add relevant strategies and notes. Now I can quickly find key strategies that help me in times of making a decision.
The BEST Connections apps are amazing tools for improving your ability to return to independent work, college, or even daily life. I am using the apps myself and have sent many Veterans from my VA, where I work, to this project.
