Find Happiness With The Happy App
This month, in honor of Spafinder Wellness 365 launching The Wellness App. we asked our contributors to share their favorite Apps. Mia Kyricos, an internationally-recognized wellness travel, lifestyle and hospitality expert, explains her’s:
The Go-To: Happify: Science based Activities and Games for Stress and Anxiety Relief. Aside from its great brand name – it’s one of my favorite new apps on the health and wellness scene. It offers evidence-based solutions for emotional health and wellbeing, catering to the often-forgotten mind and cornerstone of a healthy body and spirit, happiness.
How It Works: You take a quiz which identifies where you are on a scale of life experiences from health issues to sociability. The App delivers tools and programs, developed by leading scientists and experts who’ve been studying evidence-based interventions in the fields of positive psychology, mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy for decades to help you take control of your emotional wellbeing.
What I Love: Through the little games, quizzes and activities, Happify helps me to see the more positive aspects of my life while putting me in a good mood. Let’s face it, EVERYONE has glass-half-full-days and we can all benefit from just taking a time-out. I think of it as recess for adults!
