Personal Zen is an Apple™ app designed to help users reduce anxiety. It tasks users with playing a simple game that helps shift attention away from fears and anxiety. According to the developers, playing this game over time can lead to a long-lasting ability to reduce anxiety in stressful situations. This can be helpful to individuals (with or without a diagnosed anxiety disorder) who need a brief, calming distraction from their troubles.
