Using AI Chatbots to Manage Stress
Traditionally, there are several proven ways to manage stress. Stress management methods include regular physical activities, relaxation techniques, getting enough sleep, social support, having a balanced diet, and positive thinking among a slew of recommendations by mental health professionals.
With the rapid development of machine learning, AI-powered chatbots are increasingly being explored for healthcare uses, and in this case, chatting (or pouring out your woes) to an intelligent chatbot might be a good option to consider in decompressing our mental rut after a bad day at work.
Using AI Chatbots to manage mental stress
In a nutshell, think of stress management chatbots as your personal virtual assistants which, besides performing a variety of specific tasks such as guided meditation or relaxation activities, possess the capability to converse with, and perhaps more importantly, provide a listening ear to your everyday issues, whenever and wherever you would like to chat. We have compiled a handful of AI chatbots below for your consideration.
