NEWS U CAN USE: 'Finish', Anti-Procrastination App, Created By Stressed Out 16-Year-Olds
(from Huff Post Teen)
Orbuch and Hansen launched Finish, an iOS app to prevent procrastination, on January 16th 2013.
"I had seen myself and so many of my friends struggling, getting really stressed over finals and getting really stressed over school in general,” Hansen told The Denver Post.
CNet News reports that Finish has been downloaded about 16,500 times since its launch and the teens have earned more than $16,000 in only a month’s time.
These two Colorado students aren't alone in feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of high school: A recent study by the American Psychological Association -- "Stress in America" -- revealed that millennials are the most stressed generation. According to the study, half of all millennials have trouble sleeping due to anxiety and 39 percent of millennials have had their stress levels increase within the last year.
Carolyn Gregoire, Huffington Post Associate Lifestyle Editor, explained on HuffPost Live that teenagers, like Orbuch and Hansen, are finding alternatives solutions to the stress they feel.
"One thing we’re seeing in this generation that’s positive is that people are starting to take their stress and acknowledge it,” said Gregoire. “We’re seeing so many teenagers and young people blogging about the stresses in their life and opening up about it, and finding ways to manage it that are healthy.”
