Modern living comes with its downfalls – anxiety, stresses and strains can often mean the deterioration of your mental health. Over the past year or so, we've seen an increase in digital tools aimed at improving mental health; something which ustwo (opens in new tab)'s Alana Woods has noticed, "DIY healthcare, neurotech and the quantified self are hot trends right now.

"Throughout our lives, we are encouraged to develop healthy habits related to diet, sleep, and exercise.
