Mobile phone technologies are continually evolving, with new advancements being made every day. Mobile app development has therefore also become more innovative with a huge range of apps designed to meet human needs – one of which is happiness.
You never know these five ways, mobile apps can help boost your happiness:
Enhancing Mental Resilience
Most people are conscious of eating well and exercising to maintain their physical health but tend to neglect their mental health. In today’s stressful, fast-paced and competitive world, meditation is a great way for people to increase their inner peace and happiness. Meditation apps, therefore, come in handy for people who desire some easy-to-reach mental relaxation as they can quickly turn to it anytime, anywhere. They can simply log on to their favorite meditation app such as ‘Headspace’ and be guided by an online coach to achieve the desired meditation goals.
Mobile Apps to Improving Sleep
Low mood is often linked to sleep deprivation. One’s day is likely to be bright and happy if they have a good night’s sleep. They would otherwise remain moody and fatigued throughout the day. For people who suffer from issues such as insomnia, apps such as ‘Sleep Cycle’ help to induce sleep by playing soothing music. The app can also help one keep track of sleeping hours, to ensure that they are well rested every night.
Research indicates that people are happier when they give thanks. However, while good deeds occur throughout the day, it is natural for people to forget to give thanks. As a result, they may feel sad and unsatisfied at the end of the day and consequently unhappy. The development of mobile apps such as ‘My Gratitude Journal’ help reminds one to document at least five things they are grateful for at the end of the day. Such apps enable people to harbor more happiness and positivism in their lives.
Improving Focus and Productivity
Mobile apps can improve one’s focus and productivity, whether at home or at work. For instance, the ‘Forest’ app engages a user with different activities that require one’s full attention. One can ‘plant’ a tree and concentrate while watch it grow. Such an app can be used to help people who tend to lose their focus quickly or those who are more restless to help them settle down.
Mobile Apps for Laughter
One of the most effective methods of inducing happiness is through laughing as laughter is known to generate hormones that result in a happy mood. However, it is not easy for one to laugh while they are alone. With apps like ‘Earwolf’, one can listen to a wide variety of funny people. Merely listening to or reading funny contents from a mobile app can boost happiness significantly.
In conclusion, mobile apps can be a source of happiness and bring positive vibes to the world. In a world where people are constantly rushing and highly stressed out, happiness apps may be in high demand as they bring some balance to a person’s life.
